Artistically Inked – Thank you (for the birthday gift)

Welcome back! Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

Today, I am playing with the Theme and Sketch from Try Stampin’ On Tuesdays (#534); Theme – Seize the Birthday (#238); Colors – Color Throw Down (#692) and Tools – Can You Handle the Pressure (#7).

Here is the result:



  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Highland Heather cardstock.
  • Background Panel: (5” x 3¾”) Basic White cardstock dry-embossed with the retired Quilt Top Embossing Folder for the Faux Stitching motif.
  • Three Shapes – Flowers: Basic White cardstock scraps.
    • The smaller Floral image from the Artistically Inked stamp set was stamped three times. Once with Blushing Bride ink and twice with Highland Heather ink.
    • The Flowers were die-cut with the coordinating die from the Artistic Dies set.
  • Additional Leaf: Basic White cardstock scrap.
    • The cardstock was covered with adhesive and then dipped into a box containing Gilded Leafing.  Once smoothed with a brush, the Leaf was die-cut with another of the dies from the Artistic Dies set.
  • Banner Flag: (3½” x 1¼”) Basic White cardstock scrap.
    • The Scrolled Stitching image from the retired Tin of Cards stamp set was stamped along the top and bottom edges with Versamark ink and heat-set with Gold Embossing Powder, again for the Faux Stitching motif.
    • The sentiment, Thank You, from the Hello Beautiful stamp set was stamped in Highland Heather ink.

All of the elements were adhered to the card base to resemble the sketch.

I love to receive birthday gifts and it is fun to create thank you cards and send them off letting my friends know how much I appreciated their thoughtfulness.

Thanks for spending some of your time with me today.   Cheers,  Jolanda!
