Rose Garden Thank You Cards

Rose Garden Thank You Cards

Yesterday I talked about my favourite benefit of being a demonstrator is the wonderful people I have met along the way and one of the cards I am showing today, is a thank you card I made for a lovely lady who I have also only met thanks to Stampin’ Up!  I love making thank you cards. I have a wonderful group of customers who I make them for and I try to make them different each time!

The card is 6″ x 6″ so I made the envelope from the Whisper White Envelope paper and I stamped it with the co-ordinating rose from Rose Wonder. I don’t often get around to stamping my envelopes, but I know the friend who I sent this card to, likes to do so, and so I made the effort! 😊

I used Rich Razzleberry for the rose and the leaves are Old Olive. I simply cut out the full die cut in Rich Razzleberry and then just the leaves from the Old Olive. I only needed to trim them very slightly and then stuck them over the top of the Razzleberry leaves. It looks great!

I also made a standard A6 version using the smaller rose in Melon Mambo, with the leaves from the main larger rose. Also I cut the tags using Tags & Labels Thinlits before stamping a sentiment from Another Thank You (a brilliant set to have!).

The design was inspired by some gift packaging I saw on Pinterest, which used real flowers. I love how clean and simple the cards are but very elegant and beautiful – in my oh so humble opinion anyway lol! 😂

(I never promised you a) Rose Garden Thinlits by Stampin’ Up!

(I never promised you a) Rose Garden Thinlits by Stampin’ Up!

I beg your pardon, I never promised you a Rose Garden. Along with the sunshine there’s gotta be a little rain sometime….. Seriously? Why has this song popped into my head only now, when I have sat down to type up my blog post? Yes, today’s project is using the fabulous Rose Garden Thinlits by Stampin’ Up! Yet another sneak peek for you lovely crafty folks, from the upcoming Spring/Summer catalogue.

I made this card last week and never, not once, did that song pop in to my head until now! Poof, I just started singing it, as I started typing my blog title, which was just going to be Rose Garden Thinlits by Stampin’ Up! Grrrr be still brain!! Lol! I had thought the song was by Patsy Cline, but wasn’t really sure so I just Googled it and it was a hit by Lynn Anderson! Isn’t the internet a wonderful thing? It would have driven me crazy wondering if I was right or not!

Anyway enough trivia – here’s the card.

Rose Garden Thinlits by Stampin' Up! Tracy May

I die cut the largest flower in the dies from Watercolour paper and simply used an Aquapainter to paint the leaves in Old Olive and the Flower in Melon Mambo. If you squeeze the base and the lid of the ink pad together when shut, you will transfer ink from the ink pad to the inside of the lid. Then all you have to do is add a little water from the aquapainter and paint! So simply yet so effective. I love the sentiment on black card stock as a complete stark contrast to the pretty delicate flower. Hope you like it!

I have so many ideas I want to try out with the thinlits and the accompanying stamp set Rose Wonder, as well as all the other lovely products from the Spring/Summer catalogue I bought in the demo pre-order earlier this month. I just want Christmas out of the way, so I can get on with it! BAH HUMBUG!! Lol 😆

Not really, I can’t wait to see how excited the Bedlam Brothers are on Christmas morning. They’ve been planning Christmas since before the Summer school holidays bless them!

Well I’d best crack on. See you next week. Hope you have a lovely crafty weekend if possible.

Rose Garden Thinlits by Stampin’ Up! will be available to order from January 5th.
