Stampin Up Enjoy Life - How to create a simple Thank You card

Saying thank you is something we do many times a day and sending a thank you card and receiving one tells someone that you appreciate their kindness.

ENJOY LIFE is a lovely stamp set which is perfect for a thank you card as it has some lovely sentiments in on trend fonts making the creating simple.

Using Mint Macaron and Highland Heather and a good black with some Whisper White cardstock and a matt of Mint Macaron makes a lovely subtle scene of flowers and a butterfly making this Thank You card suitable for many people.

The STAMPARATUS the best positioning tool on the market is perfect for this project using the hinge step stamping technique.

Stampin Up Dandelion Wishes, Brusho and Stamparatus. How to make 4 quick cards

THE STAMPARATUS is in my opinion the best positioning tool on the market. Two removable plates and hinge step stamping. It really is the easiest and simplest positioning tool to make your stamping projects perfect every time.








These 4 cards were made simply using the brusho crystals to create a simple background and then stamped using the Stamparatus to make multiple card making easy.

DANDELION WISHES make a great silhouette stamp and stamps over a coloured background easily.  This stamp set is only £19and comes in red rubber, a real bargain.

Heres a video to show you how I created these four cards in minutes.  Please look at subscribing to my channel and blog as I post regularly with lots of different ideas for your projects using the latest Stampin Up products.

Stampin Up Sweet Storybook. Using the Leaves on Projects

The SWEET STORYBOOK BUNDLE is a new stamp set and coordinating thinlets in the new annual catalogue.  I have been using this bundle in lots of different ways and today I am concentrating on the leaf foliage stamp.

This first card uses the foliage stamp simply stamped in Mint Macaron and the little flowers stamped at the end of each one of the fronds in Calypso Coral with a couple die cut in Real Red for a little dimension.  The sentiment from the set is die cut with the rectangular die from the same thinlets.

For this card we stepped it up a bit by adding some die cut flowers from the COLOURFUL SEASONS stamp set and coordinating dies.  For this card I stamped the foliage stamp from the Sweet Storybook, stamping off once to get a subtle tone and then using the STAMPARATUS in my opinion the best positioning tool on the market, stamp around the edge of the card.  The card I used was 4.75" square with a matt of Tranquil Tide 5" square.

The stamp and die cut two of the leaf foliage images, they stamp and cut in a pair, one in Tranquil Tide and the other in Lemon/Lime Twist.  With our PAPER SNIPS, perfect sharp pointed and easy to use craft scissors, cut the leaves apart and then place in a wreath around the card and stick down using dimenionals to some height and interest.  Arrange the flowers around the card and then add a sentiment of your choice in the middle.

One of the best things about Stampin Up products is their versatility. One stamp set and coordinating die can create so many different projects.  This is why I love being a Stampin Up Demonstrator, sharing all these lovely things with you all.

Here are a couple of videos using the Sweet Storybook in different ways. Enjoy and please look at subscribing to my YouTube channel and blog as I post regularly and love sharing new ideas with Stampin Up with you all.

Stampin Up Sweet Storybook and the Stamparatus, toadstool and mouse.

The Stampin Up STAMPARATUS is the perfect positioning tool and I must admit I use it most of the time as it saves me time in my stamping and I love how I can get all my stamp aligned at the same time just by rotating the plates, and the hinge step makes making duplicates so easy.  Want to know what I mean? then just watch the video below.




SWEET STORYBOOK I just adore.  I have always loved anything to do with nature so a stamp set with leafy foliage, toadstool and mice are right up my street.

I'd like to give a big thank you to my subscribers on my YouTube channel for their lovely comments and this video is for everyone who wanted a toadstool to be used.  If you haven't already subscribed to my channel then please do so you don't miss any of my videos.  I have 54 already there and try a post a couple of time a week and will always try and come up with ideas and styles you might not have seen anywhere else.

If you missed yesterdays video then here it is again

and here is the finished card from this project

Happy stamping and enjoy your day. I am grateful to each and every one of you for your support of my videos and blog. Thank you x
