It’s time for our November Joy of Sets Blog Hop. We are sharing some Thank You cards with you this month. I think it’s very important to express our gratitude to those around us. There are so many people we come across in our daily lives that lift us up. It could be a family member, work colleague, neighbour, sales assistant, doctor, nurse and the list goes on.
Today I’ve got a stack of cards which take on the same layout and use the same stamp sets.
The Hippo Happiness Bundle has many cute little characters which are cut out with the coordinating dies. I really like the many label options that are part of this die set as well, which I’ve used on my stack of cards.
These cute animals and characters are stamped with the two-step stamping method. It’s actually three-step stamping as you need to add the details on their faces. I love how this just gives them personality. For some of the images I used the same ink colour stamped off to achieve a lighter colour. For other images I used 2 colours. Two-step stamping provides a quick method of colouring images.
The fun Playing with Patterns Designer Series Paper was just perfect for these sweet characters. I chose the Rainbow Glimmer paper for my labels as the colours tied in well with the DSP.
Thank you for stopping by my blog today and I hope these cards have given you some ideas and inspiration to create a batch of Thank You cards ready to hand out.

Welcome to Stamping Flair in Melbourne, Australia. I’m blog hopping with my friends at the New at SU team and the theme is Happy Holidays. I have chosen the Wishes & Wonder bundle to highlight. With it’s reindeer and sleigh and other images, it is a very cute set to work with. I particularly like the tag that is in the dies.
I have used the Curvy Dies for the background along with the coordinating stamp set. This is part of the Quite Curvy Variety Bundle which you get at 10% discount when purchasing as a bundle. The stamped trees were shaded in the Dark Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blend to give some light colour.
The reindeer were stamped in Early Espresso on Sahara Sand cardstock and then shaded with Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends. This method of stamping and colouring is a quick way to get shading without spending too much time on colouring in.
I cut out one section of the Wonder of the Season Designer Series Paper for the tag. Then I ran only the bottom section through with the die to create the detailed edge as I didn’t want the tag punched out at the top.
Thank you for stopping by my blog and I hope it has inspired you with some creative ideas for the holidays. Please follow the hop through for lots of fun holiday projects and leave us comments as you go along as we love hearing from you.
