Hello! Today I have a couple of cards to share that I created with the new exclusive STAMPtember® stamp set designed by My Favorite Things for Simon Says Stamp!
I love great sentiment stamp sets (especially thank you themed!) so I was super excited to see this awesome new exclusive set. I love the mix of the painted font paired with the type font.
I decided to create two cards using only the Thanks for Being There stamp set, ink and some hearts and sequins. Sentiments are a great way to add a design to a card to create a graphic, clean and simple look! ;)
I kept both cards fairly simple and used only Sea Glass and Black ink on both of them. I added the type sentiments in different ways but kept the feel of the cards pretty similar.
For the Thank You card, I stamped the 'I can always count on you' sentiment repeatedly in diagonal lines on the bottom area of the card. I then stamped the larger Thank You in black ink above the repeated stamping and added a black and pink strip of cardstock in between. I love the pop of colour the pink adds to the card.
I stamped the heart from the stamp set underneath the paper strips and added a clear sequin (with silver stickles in the center) to the side of the heart.
For my Thanks card, I created a heart shaped mask and then I repeatedly stamped the 'Your compassion touched my heart' sentiment inside the heart area. Once I had it fully stamped, I used an ink blending tool to pull in the same colour from the outer edges of the heart to the center to really define the heart shape.
Once I had the heart done I removed the mask and stamped the large thanks directly over top. I love how bold it is against the inked heart background.
To add a little more dimension and detail to the card, I diecut some hearts from black cardstock and adhered them to the card. I covered them with a clear wink of stella glitter marker and then with glossy accents.
To complete the card, I added a strip of black and green cardstock to the side of the stamped panel and then adhered it to a white top-folding card base.
I love stretching my sentiments sets to not only be the actual sentiment on the card but to also be a design element. Text looks so clean and graphic on a card, especially with a mix of type and script fonts.
