Quick & Easy Thank You Card

Monday, February 24th, 2020

We’ve all been there – you need a card quickly, but don’t have much time! Hello friend – Deb here from the Design team, and today I’m sharing a quick & easy thank you card that you can pull together in a jiffy. Another way of using this card is to create it in advance, but just leave off the sentiment. Then, it’s ready for when you need it – just add the sentiment appropriate to the situation at hand!

COZY COMPANIONS THANK YOU

Who doesn’t love a bear in a cozy chair, with a mug of hot chocolate?! This cutie is ready say ‘thank you’, or even just thinking of you.

Quick and Easy Thank You Card

Wouldn’t you just love to join him in a cup of cocoa? I would!

CARD DETAILS

On a small piece of white cardstock, stamp the bear image from the MFT Cozy Companions set in Memento Tuxedo black ink.  Colour in the image using Copic markers. For the chair, I chose greens G09 & G03; B00 & B02 for the sweater; E29 & E37 browns for the bear and Y28 (which is a Lionet Gold) for the stool & chair legs. Next, use the coordinating Cozy Companions dies to die cut the bear.

For the background, use the MFT Wonky Stitched Rectangle dies and cut a smaller light blue panel, and a larger white panel. Use a blending tool to add some Salty Ocean Distress ink around the edges of each panel.  Use the Memento ink to stamp the sentiment from the Penny Black Sentiment Collection in the  upper right corner. Now, layer the pieces together. Glue the white panel onto a light blue card base, then attach the blue panel & the die cut bear with foam tape.

Quick and Easy Thank You Card

I think that the die cutting, along with the stitched layers adds just the right amount of interest & depth for this card. And no one needs to know how easy it was to pull together! I think that the part that took me the longest was deciding on colours.

SUPPLIES

You will love the adorable scenes that  you can create with the MFT Cozy Companions stamp set. And I’m always the first to say that you should always get the coordinating die set – it just adds so much interest to a project when you add dimension.

A Warm and Feathered Valentines

Sunday, December 15th, 2019

Hi crafty friends and welcome back. It’s Sandi here and today I’ve created a fun Valentine’s card to share with you using My Favorite things products and Copic Markers called a Warm and Feathered Valentines.


Yeah, I’m so excited to tell you that Scrap ‘N Stamp has Copic Markers Back in stock for all your colouring adventures.

A Warm and Feathered Valentines

I started by blending Distress Oxides for the background. Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Squeezed Lemonade and Picked Raspberry. Then I placed the Lots of Hearts Stencil over this and used the darkest color, Picked Raspberry to blend in some hearts. When the ink was dry, I splatted a bit of white paint to give the illusion of snow.

The final step for the background, I white heat embossed the snowflakes and sentiment.

A Warm and Feathered Valentines

I took advantage of the recent Memory Box Die sale and scooped up these Alpine Trees which I die cut to create my snow covered trees and frosty mountain. The white background really helps to make that little owl POP.

A Warm and Feathered Valentines

Finally, I stamped my owl in copic friendly Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored him with my Copic Markers and then die cut him out with the coordinating dies.

The sentiment set I used, Birdie Brown greetings is currently out of stock so I have linked to Greetings Galore which is a similar set and has lots of different sentiments you could use on this card.

That’s it for me today, hope you enjoyed the project. I have linked the supplies I used for A Warm and Feathered Valentines card below for you and until next time, Happy Stamping

White Christmas Theme Continues

Sunday, December 8th, 2019

Happy Monday, my friend! It’s Deb here today, one of the Scrap ‘N Stamp Design Team. Today’s card continues on with our White Christmas theme, for our recent Scrap ‘N Stamp Blog Hop. If you missed it, you’ll want to see all of the amazing projects! You can start at the Scrap ‘N Stamp post HERE with Tara. There’s 2 things you’ll want to do. First, leave a comment on each of the blog posts, as you hop along. You’ll be automatically entered to WIN a $50 Scrap ‘N Stamp Gift Card! Second, take advantage of the FREE GIFT available from Scrap ‘N Stamp! It’s a gorgeous Snowflake Die from Dee’s Distinctively. But it’s only while supplies last – so hurry! (shipping must be paid at time order placed). My card for the White Christmas blog hop wasn’t strictly white – I also included red & green, for that traditional look. So today, for my White Christmas theme continuing, I’ve only added gold.

WHITE CHRISTMAS THEME CONTINUES

I don’t have a stand-alone snowflake die, so I used the beautiful Hero Arts Snowflake Cluster die to replace the ‘O’ in Joy.

Hero Arts Snowflake Cluster

Isn’t this pretty? Sparkly paper, gold foil and brushed gold add add opulence to minimalist card.

CARD DETAILS

Use the Hero Arts Snowflake Cluster die, and die cut it twice; once from gold foil paper, and again from Lawn Fawn white sparkle paper. Next, use letter dies to die cut the J and Y twice each; once from white cardstock, and again from gold foil paper.  I used letter dies I have in my stash; the ones from MFT carried by Scrap ‘N Stamp are very similar. Layer the letters together with the gold on the bottom, slightly off-set. Repeat this with the snowflakes. Use the Sticky Dots for easy coverage of the intricate dies.  As I was about to attach these to my white layer, I decided that it needed more texture. So using a dots embossing folder from my stash, I ran it through my machine.

Create a white cardbase, and attach a panel of gold cardstock to it with glue, Next attach your white layer, with foam tape. Finally, attach your die cuts to the front, using foam dots. The last touch is to add some gold spots with the Nuvo Shimmer Pen in Midas Touch.

I propped a piece of the gold paper behind the card in the photo above, so you can see the lovely colour and texture of it.

ARE YOU HOPING FOR A WHITE CHRISTMAS?

I always love a white Christmas; especially when the celebrations are at my house! (then I don’t have to worry about driving in the snow). It rarely happens here in Vancouver, but once in a while, we do see the white stuff. I hope you’re inspired by today’s card, as well as those by the Design Team in our White Christmas blog hop.
