Sentimental Swirls

March Customer Thank You Cards

This month my Customer Thank You Cards are inspired by the Annual Catalog. If you are ever looking for inspiration the Annual Catalog is a great place to start, it’s a treasure trove of amazing creations. I took the inspiration from page 68, the Simply Elegant Suite card. I love the elements in this card, it showcases Designer Series Paper and stamping directly on to the cardstock card base.

To make my card I started with stamping the beautiful swirl from the Sentimental Swirl stamp set on the left side of the cardbase. I love stamping tone on tone, it really makes the already pretty colors so much richer. I also stamped some of the swirls on the inside of my cards.

Next, I cut strips of the Abstract Beauty DSP and Gold Foil paper. I adhered the DSP to the Gold Foil Strip, then using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, added them to the right side of the card base.

I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Tulips stamp set in Magenta Madness on the label. Before adding the label to my card, I adhered a gold foil element from the Expressions in Ink Ephemera Pack to the back of the lable with some Stampin’ Seal. I cut a piece of Foam Adhesive sheet which I added to the back of the label over the Gold Foil element. Doing this keeps the Gold Foil element lifted off the card but firmly in place on the back of the label.

I wanted to use all the 2020-2022 In Colors and the Abstract Beauty DSP was perfect to pair with these pretty colors. Once I started taking photos of my cards, I had some inspiration to add just a touch of bling, I brushed a little Wink of Stella on the swirls. I love the look, but it was hard to photograph.

  • Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score in half at 4-1/4″

Sentimental Swirls For You

I have another card for you that showcases my favorite stamp set in the Jan-June 2022 Mini Catalog, Sentimental Swirls. As well as my favorite DSP in the Friendly Hello Bundle, from the Sale-a-Bration brochure. I created this card for the Luv 2 Stamp Group Wednesday Weekly Challenge.

The layout of my card is a great way to use multiple patterns of DSP. I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to attach them to a Basic White Thick Cardstock cardbase.

The flower and leaves in the Sentimental Swirls stamp set are 2 step stamps and coordinate with the Flowers & Leaves Punch. I stamped the outline of the flowers in Petal Pink, Pool Party and Fresh Freesia, The leaf outline is stamped in Granny Apple Green. Using the solid image of the flowers and leaves I stamped the ink off on my grid paper first before stamping the flowers and leaves. I love how they turned out.

I die cut the Basic White label using the Sweet So Sweetly dies. The For You sentiment is stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I added it to my card with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and glue dots to add the flowers and leaves. I brushed the flowers with a Wink of Stella and added a few Elegant Faceted Gems. Leave me a comment below to let me know if you like my card today.

My Thank You Cards this month feature 2 new products, The Sentimental Swirls Stamp Set available in the Jan- June 2022 Mini Catalog and the Friendly Hello Designer Series Paper from the Friendly Hello Bundle available in the Jan-Feb Sale-a-Bration Brochure.

Using the Friendly Hello Designer Series Paper, I cut 2 Patterns for the card front. Stacking them together to cut them at the same time, I put them on my Paper Trimmer to cut them diagonally.

Using the largest card from the Assorted Memories & More Cards & Envelopes pack as my card base, I attached 2 different patterns of the DSP I cut with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I love the look of the 2 patterns together on the card front. Cutting them together made it very easy to match them up so they fit together nicely when I put them on the card front.

I die cut the label in Basic White with the Tasteful Labels dies. Using my new favorite stamp set from the Mini Catalog, Sentimental Swirls, I stamped the Thank You in Fresh Freesia. The butterflies are stamped in Granny Apple Green and Petal Pink on the label. Then I decided to stamp them again and fussy cut them out to add with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used the Fresh Freesia Open Weave Ribbon to add to the back of the sentiment with some Stampin’ Seal adhesive. Then I used the Foam Adhesive Sheets, cut a square and put that over top of the ribbon. This will keep the label from sagging and the ribbon in place. If you haven’t tried the Foam Adhesive sheets yet, give them a try. They are very easy to cut to whatever shape you need, and give a little extra support to whatever elements you use them with.

After attaching the label to the card, I added the extra butterflies that I fussy cut. I like the extra dimension of adding them with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I couldn’t resist adding a Wink of Stella to the to make them shimmer. For the finishing touch, I added a few of the Opal Rounds to the cards.
