Thanks So Much

Thank You Card idea with Stampin' Up! Spring 2013 Collection

What's a girl to do on a cloudy, rainy, gloomy day? This girl dove right in to some new products from the Stampin' Up! Spring Catalog and things brightened up immediately. Birds chirped, angels sang, and a little ray of sunshine made its way right to my craft table.

I adore the new Tea for Two Product Suite, so I started there. The Oh, Hello Stamp Set and the Tea for Two Designer Series Paper coordinate beautifully giving the classic tea party a trendy and fresh new twist.

Sponging the edges of the patterned paper gives it an aged look without actually distressing the paper.  I sponged first with Pink Pirouette, followed by Always Artichoke.  The sentiment is stamped onto Rose Red card stock using Always Artichoke ink and trimmed to mimic the stamped Artichoke piece behind it.

The new 1-1/4" Two-Tone Ribbon in Pink Piroutte/Rose Red is stunning - a shimmery look with the feel of silk - and it's a dream to work with. It's thin and supple, not stiff and bulky, so it's easy to tie and won't add too much bulk for mailing. (Sans a big resin flower!)

The Artisan Embellishments Kit {swoon} provides the extra WOW on this thank you card.

The large resin flower and delicate lace trim add the charm that really make this card a special treasure for someone dear.

I loved making this card.

It was hard to narrow down what to use with all the new pretties in front of me, but I was so excited to create ... which lately has been missing a bit for me. I think my mojo just needed a change of pace and boy, oh boy ... it's got one now!
