Seasonally Scattered Thanks Card


Background Sponging Technique Thanks card

I love this new Seasonally Scattered stamp set from pg 43 of the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog!  Have you seen it!?  Flip to page 43 because I want to tell you something about it....  do you see how the LOVE and MERRY images look smaller?? Well, they are NOT smaller.. they are shown at 1/2 size... all 3 stamps in that set are the same size as the THANKS image!!  I was a little confused at first when I saw the images and didn't read the fine print, so I didn't want you to be confused too! :)

If you don't have a catalog, you can view it and purchase it online here. I'll list all the other supplies at the bottom of this post. Need a catalog? leave me a comment and let me know so I can get one to you!


So this was the Thank You card I used for some customer orders last month.. I know that almost everyone who received one emailed me to say they liked it.. that made my heart so happy!  I was inspired by a swap card I received from Cindy Henry in our Luv 2 Stamp Group!

Fabulous Fall Stampin' Up! Color Combo:


How to do the masking and sponging for this card:


Then I decided I needed custom colored pearls for my little flowers!

Blendabilities to the Rescue!



eeeeks.. have you noticed this new Embossing Folder on page 15 of the Holiday Catalog!?  aaaaaaaah I love it!!!  It's called Filigree Frame!  FABULOUS!

I embossed the Blackberry Bliss layer with that new embossing folder and then layered it onto a folded Hello Honey card.  PRETTY PRETTY!



If you haven't guessed by now, one of my most used punches is the Itty Bitty Accents trio of punches, and specifically this darling little flower!


Stampin' Tip for little punched pieces from Patty:


and then I heard the Ice Cream man come down the street and it was all over... had to go out and get a treat!  I guess the It's-It is a (San Francisco) Bay Area treat... it's two oatmeal cookies with ice cream in the middle, then dipped in chocolate.. yummmmm


What's YOUR favorite treat after a long day of stamping?

I have a real sweet tooth, Patty, so anything like that is on my fav list. I like your new embossing folder and also the idea to put your punched flowers on glue dots for perfect storage. And, when you need them, they are ready to go=LOVE THAT!
