Saying efharisto with Color Theory DSP

As I’ve just returned from a fabulous week in Cyprus where I’ve been saying efharisto a lot. It is Greek for ‘thank you’.

Before I left, I made a batch of notecards to give out to staff members as a token of my appreciation.

I made these notecards using three different versions using the Color Theory DSP. This DSP stack is on the retiring list so make sure you don’t miss out.

I began by stamping the top half using the ‘splats’ from the Waterfront Stamp Set. This is also where the tiny sentiment comes from that is layered with the 1 1/8″ Scallop Punch.

A strip of the DSP creates the bottom section with a piece of co-ordinating cardstock across the centre.

Each of the cards differs as they use a different section of DSP each time.  Here they are in their different colourways. I know that Dapper Denim is also in the DSP stack, I just didn’t have enough of it left!

And finally, one of each colour side by side.

Berry Burst and Basic Black Birthday

Here’s a Berry Burst and Basic Black Birthday card (bit of a tongue twister) I made for my Niece. March is a little busy for Birthdays in our family, so I make quite a lot at this time of year.

Birthday Card using DSP and SAB Party Pandas Stamp Set from Stampin' Up! Project designed by Karen Young at HIPPOFROG Designs

I’ve used various DSP to create the card. Strips of Petal Passion DSP for the bottom section and a piece of Colorful Theory DSP for the bow.

A thin strip of cardstock with some Washi Tape across the centre adds to the different layers.

The fun Happy Birthday sentiment from the SAB Party Pandas Set in co-ordinating Berry Burst makes this a bright and modern card.

It wouldn’t be a card for a teenage girl if it didn’t have some bling, so Rhinestones are the finishing touch.

Here’s a close up of some of the detail.

A tiny card with a big meaning

As you know, I held a Charity Card Making Day earlier this month in aid of a local Milton Keynes Hospice.

One of the options for the Create, Take and Donate Day was to make 20 cards. This was using the Soft Sayings Kit and then donating 10 of the cards made.

I had a number of ladies who chose to do this, so I made a little card that greeted each of them to say thank you for supporting the day.  It’s a tiny card with a big meaning.

Stampin' Up! Flower Shop

The card is 3×3″ and fits in one of the new 3×3 Envelopes from the Autumn/Winter Catalogue.

I’ve used the Color Theory DSP Stack and co-ordinating cardstock and ink to create the flowers.  There is even room for a bit of bling too!

These cute cards are great to have on hand to send a quick note.  They are also great for making in batches and putting into the new Mini Pizza Boxes as a pretty gift.

Head to my class timetable for details of my next classes and to book your place.

Customer Thank You Cards – Color Theory

Thank you so much for your recent orders.  I know I say it a lot, but I truly appreciate every single order.

Making Thank You cards to send is an absolute pleasure for me.

If you’ve ordered from me recently then one of these should have made its way to you.

Stampin' Up! Color Theory

I’ve used the Color Theory Suite for these cards and have taken my inspiration from Page 130 of the Annual Catalogue.

There are four colours in the suite and I’ve used three for these cards.

Using the Thankful Thoughts Stamp Set I first stamped the sentiment multiple times onto the colour fade DSP.  I then used the Triple Banner Punch to shape the edges of the highlighted sentiment.

Finally, I added some DSP flowers cut using the Tree Builder Punch with Rhinestones for the centres.
