SIP #27 Thank You Card

http://www.stampinkpaper.comHello and Happy Tuesday!  Hopefully your week is off to an awesome start!  I'm back over at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge Blog with a Thank You Card Challenge today!

This week I used Ellen Hutson's Bold Blossom dies, a Unity Stamp Company stamp set (for the sentiment) and Stampin' Up! Cardstock and Ink.  Yep.. I was all over the place this week!

I started with a 4 1/2 " 11' piece of Thick Whisper White Cardstock scored at 5 1/2".  My next layer was another piece of Thick Whisper White that had been embossed with a woodgrain embossing folder.  Basic Gray Ink was sponged along the edges of the woodgrain layer before adhering to the base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.   I used my aqua painter and Mossy Meadow ink to make some splatters onto the woodgrain background.  I cut out the Ellen Hutson Bold Blossoms using Mossy Meadow for the leaves and Melon Mambo for the flowers.  After cutting them out, I sponged them with the coordinating ink to make them a bit darker.  Once dried I glued the die cuts onto the same color cardstock that they were cut from and then cut them out with my paper snips.   I adhered some with multipurpose glue and others with dimensionals.  My sentiment from the Unity Bouquet Bunch of Thanks Itty Bitty Stamp Set was stamped with Melon Mambo onto an 1 1/2" wide piece of the Thick Whisper White.  The Triple Banner Punch was used to banner cut the end.  I used my bone folder to put a wave into the flag and then adhered to my card with glue dots.  I added an button from the Home for Christmas Designer Button Collection and threaded it with some linen thread and made a couple of extra loops behind the button before adhering it with more glue dots.   Last but not least I added three gorgeous Pretty Pink Posh Dew Drops that I received from my friend, Andrea Tracy-Tucker for my birthday!  I love these and must buy more when I use them up! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings, Tina
