Thank you for everything...

Hi Folks!

Thought I'd pop in before I head to bed, to share a card I made :)

I made this card after seeing an amazing card that my gorgeous friend Mary Dawn made HERE. (it was a little while ago but it's stuck in my head since I saw it) I love how she took a really simple stamp from the set, that most would overlook and turned it into an amazing card.

So here's the set:

Its a new Hero Arts one. Now, I've only had this for about 2 months, but I use it CONSTANTLY. However, when I was trying to think of how to recreate Mary Dawn's card, I saw that funny little swirl on the lower right hand side...see it there?!

This is the card:

Thank you for everything

I think this could be perfect as a sympathy card, a wedding card, a birthday card for someone older (or serious :)) with just a change of the sentiment you choose!

VERY simple to make. I took some white cardstock, cut it to the size I wanted for the card, scored it and corner rounded the bottom two corners.  Next I took my tiny stamp, inked it up with some Pigment ink in a champagne colour, then stamped it all over the card front (making sure to turn it this way and that, as well as going off the edge of the card).
Next I took a little strip of extra cardstock I had, and did the same thing, but with a dusty rose coloured ink. (I inked the edges of the strip & card base with the corresponding inks too)

I adhered the strip onto the card front, then added my sentiment. Finally I added a few gemstones to bring out the champagne colour in the ink.

Well I hope you like it! I'm planning on making a whole set of these with different colours.

Here are the products I used:


Thanks so much for joining me!

I'll be back VERY soon with my final *sob* card for the Simon Says Stamp challenge blog!
