Thank You in Blue

You know how sometimes you have a new stamp and you just have to use it?  My new Triple Step Thank You from Concord & 9th is that stamp and die set that earned the distinction of "I wanna play with it now!"  I created a few cards with the set and played around with several colors of Memento Ink.  These are my two favorite versions.

  • For both versions I set up my stamp platform so I could stamp several of the main Triple Step Thank you.  I used Memento Inks in Summer Sky, Bahama Blue, and Paris Dusk.
  • Wink of Stella added a bit of shimmer and sparkle on the letters of the sentiment, it is hard to photograph without bright sunlight and we are a bit short on that here in Central Oregon!  Currently it is snowing.
  • The same three inks are used with the sprinkles from Concord & 9th's Sweet Sprinkles set.  I varied the order of the colors and stamped the design across the card.
  • Craft twine is wrapped around one edge and tied in a bow.
  • The Thank you sentiment is mounted with dimensional foam adhesive.
  • The card base is inked with Bahama Blue and an Ink Blusher.
  • The base layer is adhered to the front of the card.

  • The background is created with Lifestyle Crafts Tide embossing folder.  The ink is applied directly to the embossing folder and the white cardstock is pressure embossed.  only the recessed sections of the cardstock pick up the ink for the most part.  This is a really quick way to create a background, although your fingers do get a bit inky!
  • For this version the card base is inked with Summer Sky.
 Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed New Year!
