Thank You


Here is a sweet and simple card I made using some Paper Inspirations stamps that I got at Stamper's Dream. The ribbon, Memory Box paper and Gemstones can also be found at Stamper's Dream. I stamped the Thank You from the Favorite Calligraphies clear stamp set in Onyx Black Versafine ink. Then, I colored the flower stamp with Cameo Coral and Old Olive markers and stamped that over top. I added some Hero Arts Gemstones to a couple of flower centers. For the finishing touches, I added the ribbon and punched the bottom of the card with the scallop border punch by Martha Stewart. What a pretty quick and simple card!
I'm very happy to announce that I've been asked to join the Stamper's Dream Design Team! I'm looking forward to working with the already amazing team and getting to know Michelle and the gang more! They are a wonderful bunch of people! The store carries a wide variety of stamps, embellishments and supplies. I'm very excited! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Favorite Calligraphies, Watercolor Pressed Flowers (Paper Inspirations); Ink- Onyx Black (Versafine); Paper- white (Georgia-Pacific), Certainly Celery (SU), Homespun Collection (Memory Box); Accessories- Old Olive, Cameo Coral markers (SU), ribbon (May Arts), scallop border punch (Martha Stewart), Gemstones (Hero Arts)

Congratulations! I love this large sentiment stamp. It's rare to see a Portuguese version of Thank You (Obrigado) on a stamp. Sadly, it should be Obrigada, unless a man is giving the card. Oh well. I'll probably get the stamp anyway. :) Beautiful card!
