Hostess Background Bits thank you

Pretty and feminine and subtle NOTE CARD thank you card.  I used those perfect sized note cards to create this sweet, little card for someone very special who is always doing the sweetest and kindest of things, special gifts, sweet notes and lovely conversations. Can’t say who yet as the recipient may be reading my post.  wink. wink.  Shhhhh….!

My card today was created with the lovely Background Bits stamp set that you earn as a Hostess Set with a $150 or more order.  It is such a lovely set and I see it for me personally to use for a more “vintage” style of stamping.  I used Crumb Cake ink and spritzed the lovely doily we see in a mix of Alcohol and our Crumb Cake reinker together and spritzed it to create a pale, but vintage “tea stain” look.

I did all the stamping on the front of the card by “stamping off” which means I inked up the stamp itself, THEN I stamped “off” on a scrap piece of paper and then stamped onto my card front.  It gives it a pale, subtle look and perhaps a more “old time”  look.  I used the sentiment from our Eastern Beauty stamp set and it fit perfectly onto of the center of my folded up doiley.  I cut the sentiment circle out with the STITCHED FRAMLITS to give even more dimension and noticeability. 🙂

Here is the stamp set!  So pretty!

  • I used Crushed Curry this time for my card base (it’s a deep Yellow color tone)
  • Stamped my sweet little Daisies onto Whisper White using the all new Daisy Delight stamp set on page 127 of the Annual Catalog
  • I stamped my daisies (4 of them) in Crushed Curry ink
  • Hello and Love on the circle pieces are from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set

Cool Treats Thank you!

Cool Treats for you today!  These sweet ice cream cones are so fun to make and create! So many possibilities to make them just the way you want to!


What a cute stamp set that has some sweet Framelit dies to cut these sweet little ice cream cones out!

It is called Cool Treats stamp set and I knew I wanted to get my “swirly on” today with pretty little treats!  I used Peekaboo Peach, Rose Red, and Lemon Lime Twist card stock scraps to die cut these swirls out and then mixed a little water with a little Tombow glue, swished with a small paint brush and lightly “brushed” the stamped image swirls and then quickly sprinkled that gorgeous Dazzling Diamond sprinkle we sell onto each to give some “sparkle!”  Really cute and pretty look!

Here below is the stamp set, images by Stampin’ UP!

See the “swirl?”  I stamped that image onto each of the colored card stock scraps with the matching ink!  I love that Stampin’ Up color coordinates all their papers, inks, ribbons, card stocks, embellishments!  One of the many, many reasons I joined this AWESOME company years ago!  I don’t have to figure out what goes best with what color, etc!  It makes crafting and stamping so wonderful!  YAY!

SEE my envelope?  Good, because it needed a some creative “love” so I used a bit of designer series paper to cut around the outside flap to complement my sweet little ice cream cones card!  By the way, in case you didn’t realize this, I used our nice Whisper White Note Card set for this small thank you card!  Love them, they’re great!

This card is going out to a really sweet young lady that is always so thoughtful and kind. She’s gives the sweetest and beautiful gifts for when she visits or sends with my son.  I am so appreciative of her thoughts and such a nice gesture to do!  She is so sweet and this card fits the bill for HER!

These are the Stampin’ Up patented die cuts so you can see them up close!  They emboss the cones, too, isn’t that awesome fun?!!!  Plus the variety of “ice cream” with its little spoon for your sundaes!

I will be using this set all year for birthday cards and ice cream social events on our back deck!  Summer is NOT over yet!!!  As a matter of fact, who says you can’t have a HOT fudge SUNDAE in the middle of WINTER????!!! Okay then.

I hope you enjoyed this sweet little card on a darling NOTE CARD, you must have at least one package to fit your needs! You will thank me later!

Have a fantastic day!  Thanks so much for your stopping by!!

As always, lots of stampin’ hugs from my house to yours!
