Stampin’ Up! Blog Highlight – Thank You Theme

Hello from Washington State in the USA! I have been enjoying taking part in Kylie’s blog hops the past couple months and am glad to have a card ready to go for this one. This was actually the first card I made for the Global Design Project #034 challenge this week but then I got another idea and decided to use that second card for GDP034 and the first one for this Stampin’ Up! Blog Highlight. Worked out great! So if you participated in the GDP challenge this week then the card will look quite familiar. Ha, ha!

This card will go to my mom, thanking her for taking care of my youngest son recently when I attended the Stampin’ Up! Onstage event in Salt Lake City, Utah. I had made another card to give her, but she will like this one better… lucky for her that I can’t seem to give a card within a reasonable amount of time. It’s been like, three weeks already. And the funny thing is, if I want to send my mom the card in the mail (which is the most exciting way to get a card, right?) I will have to ask for her address. LOL! She moved into a new house last year and while of course I know where she lives, I have never gotten around to writing down the address. This is a good thing though because I should probably have that on hand in case of an emergency.

First I would like to point out that I am so upset that the Watercolor Thank You stamp is retiring. It is such a pretty font and perfect for making a super-quick card. (Insert sad face.) OK, moving on… this was a very simple card to make. The part that took me the longest was deciding the colors for the mat and card base! First I added water to a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock and then I dropped in the colors Pacific Point, Bermuda Bay and Tempting Turquoise. I did have the cardstock taped to a board and dried it with my heat tool, but it still warped a bit. At first I used a lot of Snail Adhesive to attach it to the Bermuda Bay mat, but it still popped back up on the sides. So then I had to pull each side up and add some 2-Way Glue and it stayed put much better. The card base is Whisper White Thick Cardstock. Easy Peasy!
