Today I’ve got for you really beautiful Thank You cards I’ve made using Healing Hugs Stamp Set by Stampin’ Up!

I’ve made these for my customers who shopped with me in the month of June and used Host Code. I have sent them out with rhinestones and some treats!

I had a little delay this month because of MS giving me hard time again, but my ladies were very understanding and loved their parcels. I even received a couple of messages back to say how much they loved them!

To make my cards, I’ve used gorgeous distINKtive stamp set called Healing Hugs and a sentiment from Love What You Do stamp set.

  • Poppy Parade/Gorgeous Grunge/Bermuda Bay cardstock: 11-6/8″ x 4-1/8″ scored at 5-1/2″ (29.7 x 10.5 cm scored at 13.9 cm)
  • Whisper White cardstock: 4″ x 5-1/2″ (10.3 cm x 13.9 cm)
  • Whisper White cardstock for inside: 4-1/8″ x 4″ (10.5 cm x 10.3 cm)
  • Whisper White cardstock for the sentiments
  • Mini Striped Ribbon in Poppy Parade/Gorgeous Grape/Bermuda Bay: approx. 4″ (10.3 cm)

Once I scored each card base at 5-1/2″, I had 6/8″ of cardstock hanging off the base. I trimmed it off and saved it, as I will need it later in the design.

Usually, I make single cards, but for customers, I really like to make cards in batches. Once I have a design I choose colours, and then I start making the cards, each step at a time.

For these cards, I chose to use three different colours: returning Poppy Parade, new Gorgeous Grape and current Bermuda Bay (the bases and stamping). To help me with accurate stamps placings I have used a Stamparatus.

My first colour choice was Poppy Parade for the base and flowers, followed by Gorgeous Grape and Bermuda Bay. For leaves and background accents I’ve used accordingly either Soft Sea Foam and Granny Apple Green.

I stamped the main flower first on each Whisper White panel and next onto some masking paper and fussy cut it.

I placed the mask over the flower and stamped two more flowers, one above and one below, first stamping them off for a lighter shade.

Next, using the same mask I stamped the leaves. For the Gorgeous Grape card, I’ve used Granny Apple Green for the leaves. On other cards, the foliage was stamped in Soft Sea Foam.

Once all the flowers and leaves on all of the cards were stamped I decided to use small ‘plus’ stamp from the same stamp set to add some detail to the background.

I didn’t use a Stampratus for this, just a regular acrylic block, size ‘D’. Added details as I went along using same greens as before.

Before I mount all the panels to the card bases I distressed the edges using paper snips and adhered them either centred or to the right.

I took the 6/8″ pieces of cardstock that I have trimmed from bases earlier and stamped them using the flower stamp and Versamark ink pad, to create a subtle background. I adhered them to the cards using snail adhesive.

For the sentiment, I have used the ‘Thank You’ stamp from Love What You Do stamp set.

I stamped it onto the Whisper White cardstock in Memento Black, using Stamparatus.

Thanks to the  ‘hinge stamping’ I was able to stamp it many times with a ‘hinge’ apart (around 1″).

I trimmed each sentiment to the 1″ x 2-1/2″ and pop them up on the cards using dimensionals. But before I did that, I also adhered ribbons to the strips of cardstock I added before.

For the inside of the cards, I’ve used smaller panels and stamp the bottom part using the same stamps in Versamark again, for tone on tone look.

And here’s the last peak on all colours/designs together –
