Another Thank You

Good evening!
I'm sat here watching the new drama on More4 called's looking interesting so far! Myself, Jen and a couple of others are planning on going there in 2015 for my 40th bitrthday! Of course, if that is to happen, I need to stop spending so much at Stampin' Up! lol! Oh well...something's got to give...maybe I could stop eating...then I'd be skinny too lol!

Ok, here is the reason I came on tonight. A card I quickly made trying a technique I have seen used so much, but never tried.

I basically stamped the flowers 3 times each between inkings, which gives the graduated flowers. 

I stamped 3 flowers and cut them out, curled them for definition and added gems for a little sparkle. I then cut out an aperture with the word window and stamped my current favourite Thank You in it.

Products used
Cardstock - Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake
Stamps - Bloomin' Marvellous (Sale-A-Bration), Elegant Thank You
Ink - Perfect Plum
Punch - Word Window


As you may know, Stampin' Up! is in the midst of the Sale-A-Bration promotion, and right now you could get a free item each time you spend £45!! So why not treat yourself and get yourself some lovely free goodies!

Also, if you have a wishlist of around £99, why not join up as a demonstrator? Right now, during SAB, you can get £162.50 worth of products for only £99!! Yup! It's true! And there is no further commitment necessary...if you just want to be a Hobby Demonstrator, that's totally fine!

  1. Love this one Lizy. Love the effect of stamping more than once without re-inking and the aperture for the thank you is an idea I might try.

    I seem to have spent the day making "quick" cards. Mmmm not all made as quickly as I would have liked!
