My customer thank you cards for March are a little late because of my trip to OnStage in the first week of April ….. HOWEVER the great news was that at OnStage as part of the leadership meeting (CentreStage) I received a brand NEW stamp set from Stampin’ Up! which I decided was just too perfect not to use for my thank you cards.
The Crafting Forever stamp set from Stampin’ Up! will be available for everyone to order from 1st June in the new catalogue and I just know that crafters are going to LOVE IT! It has a number of wonderful greetings as well as some fabulous images (you will see a few more cards using this set in the coming weeks). It is perfect for using our water colour pencils, which is what I did for these cards. I simply stamped my pot in StazOn ink and used the water colour pencils to add a little colour here and there then blended it all using my aquapainters.
I teamed the stamp set with the Playful Backgrounds stamp set from Stampin’ Up! and I think it is a perfect combination. To get the paint swishes I used my Stampin’ Write markers in Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Pacific Point to colour the background image and covered my card front.
I loved making my customers cards each month and hopefully all the wonderful ladies that ordered from me during March will have these by now along with their little thank you gifts. Now to finish off the April ones and get back on track!
