Hi Stamping Friends!
A big shout-out and thank you to everyone who came out to the Rubber Stamp & Scrapbook Getaway this past weekend! It was so fun to see so many stampers that I haven't seen in a long time and have a chance to chat with lots of stampers for the first time! We had a fantastic time at my Thursday afternoon class and I loved stamping with nearly 100 stampers at our Friday Night Make & Take Party!
What a fantastic event it was and a great way to kick off my fall exhibiting season! I also wanted to thank Sharon Grady-McKay, Darla Eigenschink and Jodi Geers for all of their help during the show! I couldn't have done it without them!
Today, a couple of quick cards…I'm sharing a couple of lovely thank you cards created by Peggy Tassler!
Beautiful Friendship Thank You Cards
When you need a pretty card without a lot of layers and fuss, you can't go wrong with the lovely Beautiful Friendship stamp set! Peggy Tassler helps me in my studio each week and she created these pretty cards with minimal layers for me to send out with my monthly Thank You gifts. Although I love to pop up layers, sometimes I need minimal layers to keep the cards satisfying the first class requirements from the post office.
Background Basics—I love that Peggy started this card by stamping the 5" x 3-3/4" Whisper White layer with the Crackle Paint background stamp in Smoky Slate ink. Such a soft & subtle, weathered look!
Fantastic Floral—Peggy stamped the large dotted Beautiful Friendship image in Gorgeous Grape ink onto the corner, then added some additional lilac-looking blooms on either side. She finished with a couple of Old Olive leaves, then mounted the layer onto a Gorgeous Grape card base.
Sweet Sentiment—Peggy stamped the sentiment in Gorgeous Grape ink onto a 2-1/2" x 3/4" strip of Whisper White that she fishtail cut on one end.
Finishing Touches—She added a few Gingham Gala Adhesive Backed Sequins in the same Gorgeous Grape color for a little shine above the flowers.
Two Cool—Peggy's second card has some amazing colors that coordinate with the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper. She started by adding a 4" x 2" piece of that DSP on the bottom of a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White cardstock. Next, she created a pretty bouquet of flowers in this order:
- Large flowers stamped in Petal Pink. The flower centers are stamped in Calypso Coral.
- Created a mask by stamping the same flowers on a sticky note, cutting it out and laying it over the flowers before stamping the next flowers.
- The large dotted flowers are stamped in Balmy Blue.
- The small rose is stamped in Calypso Coral.
- The leaves are stamped in Mossy Meadow.
- The cluster flowers are stamped in Blueberry Bushel.
Peggy adhered some Petal Pink Striped Organdy Ribbon around the bottom of the stamped layer, then mounted it onto a Blueberry Bushel card base.
Sweet Sentiment—Peggy stamped the sentiment in Petal Pink ink onto a Whisper White die-cut from Ornate Frames dies.
Finishing Touches—She added a few Basic Adhesive Backed Sequins in the same Petal Pink color for a little shine around the flowers.
