So Very Grateful

I just had to play around some more with the So Very Grateful stamp set! I just have so much fun coloring in these lovely flowers. Take a look at this simple creation! 

  • Stamps: So Very Grateful, Four You
  • Card Stock: Crisp Cantaloupe, Pool Party, Whisper White
  • DSP: Sweet Sorbet (SAB)
  • Ink: Jet Black Stazon, Coastal Cabana
  • Markers: Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry, Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzaz, Gumball Green, Pool Party, Coastal Cabana, Blender Pen
  • Accessories: Banners Framelits, Silver Glimmer Paper, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For this card I started off with a 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” piece of Crisp Cantaloupe card stock and scored it at 4-1/4”. Next I cut a piece of Whisper White card stock 4” x 5-1/4” and stamped the flower images from So Very Grateful several times onto the card stock. The stamp images overlapped in the middle, but I knew I wanted to have the greeting go through the center of the flowers so I wasn’t worried about it.

If you want to make sure that you keep your stamped images from overlapping too far you can cover part of the card stock with a long Post-It Note, stamp the images, then move the Post-It Note over to the other side to stamp the top portion of the flowers.

I colored in the flowers with my Stampin’ Up markers then adhered this panel onto the card front. For the greeting I cut a piece of Whisper White card stock 3/4” x 4” and stamped the greeting from Four You onto the card stock in Coastal Cabana ink. I adhered this panel onto a 1” x 4” piece of Pool Party card stock.  I adhered this onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a medium and small Rhinestone on either side of the greeting.

For the banners I used the smallest Banner Framelit on a scrap of Sweet Sorbet DSP with the Pool Party flowers and the second from smallest Banner Framelit on a scrap of Silver Glimmer Paper. I used 2-Way Glue Pen to adhere these just under the edge of the greeting panel.

Done! Another simple yet pretty card thanks to the So Very Grateful stamp set. Now if I could just leave this one alone for a while to play with some of my other new goodies.
