Another Thank You With The New Photopolymer Stamp Set

Another Thank You, using  the new Photopolymer Stamp Set,  was my choice for my  swaps for convention.Another Thank you I will be at the Stampin’Up Convention for the next week, so I will be posting pics to facebook  in lieu of posting to this blog! While I’m gone (no updates while I’m there because I really don’t want to  miss a thing!), but I’ll give a thorough recap here when I’m back and settled in.   That said, I will be posting pictures and updates on my Facebook account (so much easier to post live updates) – if you’d like to follow me on Facebook, please click hereSee you in a week.

Now for that swap card! Another Thank YouHow many ways can you say thank you? With this set there are at least 7 ways in different sizes and fonts for the perfect fit.
These photopolymer images make it easy to see where you’re stamping too! I had my choice of seven and took the Thank you at the upper right hand corner.

 Card supplies Used:

Papers: Brushed Gold card base, Whisper White Layer cut at 4″ X 51/4″.

Inks: VersaMark, Metallic Encore Ink Gold

Stamps: Another Thank You, Gorgeous Grunge

Embellishments:  Watercolor Wonder  Washi Tape, Gold Sequin TrimGold Baker’s Twine

Accessories: Embossing Buddy, Heat Tool, Stampin’ Emboss Powder Gold

• Take your Whisper White layer  and stroke with your embossing Buddy to free it of static cling.

• Using the stamp with VersaMark, stamp in upper middle of the layer. Sprinkle with Gold Embossing Powder and heat it until the entire sentiment is embossed.

• to add interest, use your gorgeous Grunge stamp with Metallic gold ink and randomly stamp as wanted.

• Starting form the bottom of the layer, use one row each of the Watercolor Wonder Washi Tape.

•TIe the Metallic Gold Baker’s Twine around the taped area twice and knot, spreading the layers. Create a double 1″ bow with the twine and use a glue dot to adhere to the knot.

• Cut off 4 sequins from the string and carefully place each of them on a glue dot and adhere to upper half of card and you are finished with an elegant card, good enough for friends or in this case, for swapping.

What’s Your Type, Another Try!

Ok so I need to use my Thing-a -ma- Jig in order to get the text of this card perfectly straight. Instead, I definitely have a homemade effect with the downwards curve of my letters.  All in all, a “thx” is a  “thanks”, no matter what!

What's Your Type Thx_1

Here is another attempt at using the new What’s Your Type stamp set. While it  does have a learning curve, it was not that difficult to stamp.

Hint: Try using Post- It notes to help mask off the two vertical lines in “HI” when connecting them with the horizontal thin lines to get that perfect “H”! To achieve this be sure not to have the post it strip wider than the first verticle line or the horizontal line will not gconnect the two straight lines ( H)  Also to achieve the background on this card I used the Gorgeous Grunge in one color going horizontally and another color in the palette vertically, to achieve a plaid effect.

Papers:  Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Bermuda Bay, Moonlight

Inks: Tangerine Twist, Momento Black, Hello Honey , Tempting Turquoise

Stamps Sets: What’s Your Type, Gorgeous Grunge

Embellishments : 1/4″ Cotton RIbbon, Hello Honey Stripped Grosgrain Ribbon
