Simple and Pretty Birthday Card using Stampin’ Up! Thinlits

Hello Crafty Friends!

Sometimes I sit down to make a card and think, I want to come up with something easy to make that doesn’t look too simple.  I decided to make some of my thinlits the main focus of my card and came up with this!

Rose Garden Thinlits, Bloomin' Hearts Thinlits and Butterfly Thinlits

I started with the Thick Whisper White cardstock since I had no layers for this card.  Then I cut out the smaller butterfly In Smoky Slate from the Neutral DSP.  I liked the way the words looked on the butterfly.  Next I cut out the small flower from the Rose Garden Thinlits in Melon Mambo.  Then I also cut out the leaves from that thinlit set in Mint Macaron. Finally I stamped the Smaller flowers using the Bloomin’ Love stamp set and matching thinlits. I used Melon Mambo and Blushing Bride ink for these flowers.  I then used the Timeless Textures set  and stamped a background in Smoky Slate and Mint Macaroon. I finishe it off with Rhinestones on the flowers and a few random ones as well.  The Sentiment is part of the Rose Wonder stamp set.  That’s it!  It is simple but still pretty!

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to find time to be crafty today!

Simple Sympathy Card using the beautiful Rose Garden Thinlits

Hello my crafty friends!

I am back with a very quick card.  I never really like to think about making sympathy cards when it is time for them, so I try to make a few now and then so I have them on hand.  That way if I am not feeling so creative with the situation, it does not show in my card.  Here is one you could make when you are short on time.

Rose Garden Thinlits

I started with a Tip Top Taupe base. Then I stamped the Hardwood Background stamp on Very Vanilla paper using Sahara Sand.  I cut the Rose thinlit out with Tip Top Taupe and adhered it to the card with my Fine Tip Glue.  I added the Sahara Sand Lace trim and cut out the sentiment with my Extra Large Oval punch. The sentiment was stamped with Tip Top Taupe.  It is a simple but elegant card that someone will appreciate in a difficult time.

I have news regarding the weekly deals.  Looks like they will stop offering these as of April 18th 2016.  The good news is they have many more available than usual to go out with a bang.  Check out the great deals!

The beautiful Rose Garden Thinlits from Stampin’ Up!

Happy Tuesday Crafty Friends!

You know those times when you see a craft product and just know you will love it?  That was what I thought when I saw the Rose Garden Thinlits.  They help you make the most elegant cards and truly get creative with what you can do. My sample card is simple, but classic, and easily used for many occasions.

Rose Garden Thinlits

The thinlits come with this smaller rose and those separate petals, but also has a larger one with leaves attached that is just as pretty.  You can see in the background I also used a stamp from the Timeless Textures stamp set to give the card a little more dimension.  This is another fantastic stamp set to have as it can be used for backgrounds and layered stamping for many projects, even scrapbooking!  I will likely be sharing a card using primarily that set sometime soon.  The stripped paper is part of the Neutral Color Collection Paper pack and I think it really pops with the Mint Macaron and Blackberry Bliss cardstock.  The sentiment is part of the Rose Wonder stamp set that coordinates perfectly with the thinlits.

I highly recommend adding this thinlit to your stamping supplies!

Since it is Tuesday it is Weekly deal time!
