Hi Stampers.  Happy Monday!  I love Monday’s because they remind me that I get to work from home doing something I love to do!  Therefore, Monday’s make me thankful, which is why today’s card says “Thanks”.  I shared a Get Well Card similar to this one last month.  You can check that out HERE.

Stampin' Up! Healing Hugs Thank You Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card has a Calypso Coral card base, 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. I dry embossed a 5-1/4″ x 4″ layer of Very Vanilla CS using the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder.  I love the look of this folder!  It makes a great background for so many different cards!  That layer was then attached to my card base using snail adhesive.

Next, I cut a 5-1/4″ x 1-3/4″ strip of Mossy Meadow CS and a 5-1/4″ x 1-1/2″ strip of Very Vanilla CS.  I stamped the word “Thanks” onto the right side of the Very Vanilla Strip using Mossy Meadow ink.  This particular word is from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set, but could be any number of our stamps. The strips were then adhered together and to the card front using snail adhesive.

The focal point for this card is the BEAUTIFUL rose from the Healing Hugs stamp set. The rose is stamped onto Very Vanilla CS in Calypso Coral ink and the leaves were stamped in Mossy Meadow ink, also onto Very Vanilla CS. It’s so pretty!

Stampin’ Tip: A key to DistINKtive stamping is to have the proper amount of ink on your ink pad.  If the ink pad is too juicy, you will not get the true detail of the stamp.  If this happens to you, I urge you to rub your ink pad with the back of a spoon to push the ink down into the pad, making it less juicy.

This gorgeous stamp set is a patented design by Stampin’ Up! called DistINKtive stamping.  It’s a photo realistic look that is just fabulous!  You get lots of shading with a single stamp. Unfortunately, this set does not come with matching dies, but can be cut out using paper snips or a Brother Scan & Cut Machine.  After cutting out the rose and leaves, I attached them to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The inside of the card has a 5-1/4″ x 4″ layer of Very Vanilla CS.  I stamped the rose in Calypso Coral ink in the lower right corner before attaching it to the card, so it didn’t take up too much room.
