F all themed thank you card using Stampin' Up! products.
Cut cardstock and designer paper pieces to the following sizes using a Stampin' Trimmer:
- card from Garden Green Cardstock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 4" x 5-1/4" from Tangerine Tango Cardstock
- 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" from Very Vanilla Cardstock
- 2" x 6" from Very Vanilla Cardstock
- 2-1/2" square from Very Vanilla Cardstock
- 1" x 3-7/8" of rows of vanilla dashes on yellow and orange background from Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper, cut so the rows are vertical
Place the piece of scratch paper on top of the Stampin' Pierce Mat to protect it from ink. As you are ready to stamp on each piece of vanilla cardstock, place it on the paper on the mat. Using the mat will help you get a cleaner image each time you stamp.
Mount the larger, less detailed flower petal ring image on Block D. Ink it up with the Daffodil Delight Ink Pad. Stamp it on the bottom of the vanilla rectangle so some of the petals go off the bottom edge a bit and the left side of the flower is about 1" in from the left side. Leave the stamp on the block.
Re-ink the stamp with the Daffodil Delight Ink Pad. Stamp it again just above and slightly to the left of the first image. Leave the stamp on the block.
Re-ink the stamp with the Daffodil Delight Ink Pad and stamp it in the center of the 2-1/2" square of vanilla cardstock.
Mount the slightly smaller, more detailed ring of flower petals image on Block D. Ink it up with the Tangerine Tango Ink Pad. Stamp it over one of the yellow flower petal images you already stamped. If desired, rotate the stamp just a tiny bit and stamp it again for fuller petal images. Re-ink the stamp and stamp it again over the top of another yellow flower image. Remember to rotate slightly and stamp again for fuller images. Re-ink a third time and stamp over the top of the final yellow flower image, rotating slightly and stamping again for fuller images.
Mount the solid flower center image on Block B. Ink it up with the Cajun Craze Ink Pad and stamp it in the center of one of the flowers. Stamp again in the center of the remaining two flowers, remembering to re-ink each time.
Mount the cluster of six small dots image on Block A. Ink it up with the Cajun Craze Ink Pad and stamp in the center of one of the flower centers. Stamp again in the center of the remaining two flowers, remembering to re-ink each time.
Mount the "thankful" or "kindness" sentiment on Block C. Ink it up with the Garden Green Ink Pad. Stamp it in the lower right corner of the large vanilla rectangle so it overlaps the bottom flower just a bit on the right side.
Use Paper Snips to cut out by hand the flower stamped on the 2-1/2" square of vanilla cardstock.
Adhere the strip of Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper to the left edge of the stamped, large vanilla rectangle.
Cut a 5" piece of Lemon Lime Twist 1/4" Ombre Ribbon.
Lay the ribbon piece across the vanilla/designer paper layer so it covers the seam between the cardstock and the designer paper. Flip the layers over and fold the ends of the ribbon over. Adhere the ends of the ribbon in place with pieces of Tear & Tape Adhesive.
Remove the protective backing from the Tear & Tape strips and add more SNAIL to the back of the layers. Adhere the layers to the Tangerine Tango rectangle. Then, adhere this to the front of the Garden Green card.
Lay the long strip of vanilla cardstock on the Stampin' Pierce Mat horizontally. Mount the more solid 3-leaf stem image on Block C so the stem is pointing down. Ink up the stamp with the Lemon Lime Twist Ink Pad. Stamp it on the left side of the cardstock strip so the stem is pointing down. Stamp the stem image 2 more times, once in the center of the strip and once on the right side. Remember to re-ink the stamp each time and make sure the stems are pointing down.
Mount the more detailed 3-leaf stem image on Block C. Ink it up with the Garden Green Ink Pad. Stamp it over the top of the previously stamped stem images. Remember to re-ink the stamp each time.
Unlock the Leaf Punch. Holding the punch upside down so you can see the punching area, slide one of the stamped stem images into the punch. Carefully line up the image so it is centered in the matching punching area. Punch. Repeat to punch out the remaining two stem images.
Without adhering, place the three stem images and the cut out flower on the card front so they overlap the other two flowers a bit. When you are happy with the placement, carefully lift up the cut out flower without moving the stems.
Put some Stampin' Dimensionals on the back of the cut out flower. Remove the protective backings and carefully adhere the flower in place over the stems. Hopefully all the stems are held in place. If not, put a tiny bit of SNAIL on the back of the leaves as needed and adhere the stem in place so the end of the stem is hidden under the flower.
Choose 3 different shades/sizes of the Crushed Curry Glitter Enamel Dots and adhere them to the card front as shown.
