Bouquet of Thanks

Welcome back!  Hope all is well in your corner of the world.

Catching up with Freshly Made Sketches (#579) and Color Hues (#61).

Here is the result:



  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Crumb Cake cardstock.
  • Accent Panel: (5⅛” x 3⅞”) retired Peach Parfait cardstock from my stash bin.
    • The Fancy Oval Frame, from the Framed Florets Dies set was die-cut from the center of the panel.
  • Background Panel: (5” x 3¾”) Crumb Cake cardstock dry-embossed with the retired Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.
  • Focal Image – Oval Inset: (4½” x 3½”) Crumb Cake cardstock.
    • The Flowers from the Bouquet of Thanks stamp was stamped with Versamark ink and heat-set with Gold Embossing Powder.
    • Using a Craft Brush, Bleach was applied to the Flowers and Leaves.  Crumb Cake cardstock bleaches out to a Very Vanilla look.
    • I used my Heat Tool to hasten the drying of the Bleach.
    • Once dry, color was added back.  Calypso Coral and Mossy Meadow inks were applied with the Fine-Tipped Water Painter Brush direct from ink pad lid.
    • Again, once dry, the image was die-cut with the same Framed Florets Die.
  • Accent Label: (1⅞” x ¾”) Mossy Meadow cardstock scrap.
  • Sentiment Label: (1¾” x ⅝”) Peach Parfait cardstock scrap.
    • The sentiment, Thank You, from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set was stamped with Mossy Meadow ink.

All elements were adhered to the card base to resemble the base sketch.  A few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels were added for a bit of bling.

Such a pretty stamp, Bouquet of Thanks.  I was happy to bring it out again to use.  You can never have enough Thank You cards.

Happy that you spent some of your time with me today.   Cheers,  Jolanda!

  1. The Peach Parfait frame (one of my favorite SU colors) around the floral bouquet is lovely Jolanda, plus the subtle embossing in the background is perfect! Thanks so much for joining us at Color Hues!
