Time to share some happy with this card. The stamped floral pattern in shades of blue is sure to impress. This card began with a plain white cardstock base and a multi-layer floral stamp set. The first layer of the flower is the petals and it was stamped in two different shades of blue a lighter and a medium. Then the outline layer of the flower set was stamped in the darkest shade of blue. The sentiment was then stamped in two shades of blue as well, the “wishing you” in the darkest blue ink and “a day filled with Happiness” was stamped in the medium shade of blue. That was all it took to create a simple yet elegant card full of happiness.

This card begins with a flower shaker card base and the flower was stamped multiple times on base in buttercup yellow ink. Then the orange dot paper was added as a backer to the shaker portion and adhered to the inside of the card. Next the flower stem was stamped in leaf green ink and the flowerpot was stamped in cobalt blue ink. Both of those pieces were then die cut with this sets included dies in a Cuttlebug machine. The flower stem was then adhered to the card base as shown and the flowerpot was added using 3D foam dots to pop it up a bit. The thanks sentiment was stamped onto the orange dot paper in black ink. Then the fun part was adding the orange and yellow foam dots into the shaker insert, they add a playful touch by making the stamped message hidden.

Just in time for May flowers we have a mason jar shaker card in cool blues and sunny shades of yellow. This card begins with the jar shaker card base and the flowers and hearts are stamped directly onto it in aquamarine and buttercup ink with the leaves stamped in leaf green ink. The thanks sentiment was stamped on the turquoise backer in grey ink and attached to the inside of the card. The tag is cut using the die that comes with this set. The mason jar and tag were then stamped in grey ink onto the card base and the tag. Then a blue heart was layered onto the tag with a foam square. Next is the fun of selecting the fillers, for this card I chose some of the new green and blue jewels and gold butterfly sequins. For the finishing touch a dark brown twine was added to the mason jar lid with the tag attached to it. The result is a mason jar bursting with a springtime bouquet!

Having fun thank you cards on hand is just a good idea. Here is a shaker card made with new Hampton Art/Jillibean Stamp and die set called Hug in a Mug. The card starts out with a heart shaker card and insert, then the background papers were added. Do the pineapples speak to you too? Saying something like- “Come away with me to a tropical paradise.” Either that or maybe cabin fever is just setting in, regardless, could not resist them and love the resulting color palette too. The hearts pattern was also added to the background and then the green plaid border strip really set it off. Stamp the mug in gray ink onto lighter gray paper and use the coordinating die to cut out. Add the resulting gray heart to the border strip and stamp the sentiment directly onto them in black ink. Add the orange plaid paper as a backer to the shaker portion and then fill up the shaker insert with your chosen fillers. This card used the orange glitter flowers and the flower wood veneers. Then you are finished! This card says thank you with a fun tropical twist.
Have you seen this new ice cream stamp and die set from Hampton Art/Jillibean Soup, it really is so sweet! This card begins with the Jillibean cloud shaker card base and insert. The border strips were added from the new paper pads, All About Dots and All About Plaid. The first stamping is done onto kraft paper to create the cone in brown ink and the sentiment in red and brown ink as shown. Next the top dip of ice cream was stamped in brown ink onto the teal dots paper. Then the bottom scoop of ice cream was stamped onto the red plaid paper in brown ink, including that adorable winky eye face. The last stamped item is the cherry which was stamped in red ink onto the red plaid paper. Using a die cutting machine and the coordinating dies cut out the cone, two dips of ice cream and the cherry. Add the sentiment to the bottom right of card as pictured. Then add the ice cream cone with 3D foam dots. Adhere with regular adhesive the bottom dip of ice cream being sure to line it up inside the cutout portion of the shaker card. Add the top dip of ice cream as shown and then top it all off with the cherry on top. Then take a moment to pick out your shaker fillers, this card uses red jewels and wood veneer starbursts. Looks good enough to eat, but better to just mail it to a sweet friend.
