Sometimes you need a big thank you for someone who does something really nice for you. Thank you sentiments don’t get any bigger than this one found in Stampin’ Up!’s most recent Photopolymer Stamp Set, Another Thank You. And cards don’t get much easier than this one. Here’s a card I made with it:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Photopolymers. Have you tried out any of the photopolymers in Stampin’ Up!’s collection? If not, check out the collection by click here. While the clear mount stamps can be pressed to a clear mount block, clear mount stamps are not clear. But photopolymers are. You can see completely through them. Woo hoo! Perfect placement every time. I love my Stamp-a-ma-jig, but sometimes it’s kinda nice to let her rest on her shelf while I’m stamping in the exact right places. You’re welcome, Stamp-a-ma-jig.
- Stamping on Bags. Every once in a while, you want to stamp on more than just card stock. To make this card, I stamped on one of the Tag a Bag gift bags from the Annual Catalog. I started by cutting open one of the bags and trimming it to fit on the face of a card. I stamped the image on this really great waxy paper with its white and craft chevrons. The bag doesn’t soak up as much ink as card stock would, but it’s still a great medium for expressing thanks. I also added a panel from the back of the bag to the back panel of a Crumb Cake envelope.
- Embellish it. The thank you image wasn’t enough. I was busy making a masculine card, so I naturally thought, “add some flowers.” OK, that’s not an intuition-driven decision, but I think the flowers work here. These black flowers are not feminine, and they add a nice texture tot he card. I placed a Crumb Cake Candy Dot in the center of each flower to coordinate with the rest of the card. Woo hoo!
