A Million Thanks Kit & Alternatives

Every Wednesday morning I go live on FB and You Tube to create something using the Stampin’ Up! product that I am featuring that week. This Wednesday I played around with the A Million Thanks Kit. (Actually Tuesday night I created with the kit and Wednesday morning I created alternatives using the left over bits from the kit). I used EVERY piece in the kit.

I really want you to see how amazing our kits collection is and to let you know that for the month of June all our Kits are on sale Buy One, Get One 50% off – and it’s the most expensive kit that will be discounted!! Yay!

So anyways, here are the 9 cards & envelopes that the kit instructions show you how to make – I LOVE them.

When I created these cards I only made one change – I did not add the pop up flowers like they suggested on the heart card, I didn’t think it needed the extra layer. And I did switch up the sentiment on 2 of the cards so I could create a couple of birthday cards. I used Wildlife Wonder for the sentiment. I also used one of the flowers (that I didn’t put on the background) and some Iridescent Pearl Jewels to add a special touch. Here is what they cards looked like instead.

You can see exactly how I made these cards in this video, and of course – the kits themselves come with full colour instructions.

By making that little change to the heart card I ended up with 6 extra labels and a ton of fun flowers to create some alternate cards with. I just needed card bases, envelopes and a few fun tools and embellishments. Here’s what I created.

I used the Artistic Mix Decorative Masks, blending brushes and some Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz Ink to make these fun backgrounds.

Check out my video below to see all the details of the card. Scroll down to see close up photos of these cards, a supply list and a few more cards that I created off screen to use up all the labels and embellishments in the kit.

Here is the full list of supplies I used: (*except for the In Color 2021-2023 markers since I only used those to fix a mistake)


Paper Snips
[103579]
$15.00

Even after making the 9 kit cards (3 each of 3 designs) and the 4 alternatives (2 each of 2 designs) I still had left over flowers and these two lonely labels.

So, off screen I continued to stamp using the same materials as above.

With just one label and three black dots left (and I had the Wildlife Wonder stamp set out for the birthday sentiment), I grabbed a few more supplies – not listed above – Early Espresso ink and cardstock, Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends, Stylish Shapes dies, and some Vellum Cardstock to create this masculine card.

I created a total of 16 AMAZING cards using this kit!!

If you haven’t had a chance to play with this kit yet – you are going to want to grab it ( and one more at least since they are Buy One Get One 50% off this month – June 1 -30, 2022)

Flowering Tulips Thank You Card

I know it is still winter – but I need a bit of spring in my life – so this week I am featuring the Flowering Tulips Bundle. Today’s card was stamped in a refreshing, bright Fresh Freesia on a Coastal Cabana card base.

I stamped the images on a 2-1/2″ X 5-1/2″ piece of Basic White cardstock. The two step stamps make creating flowers with great depth and colour so easy! I stamped the larger image in full strength and the smaller detail image in 2nd generation ink. The flower center was stamped in 2nd generation Blackberry Bliss Ink. I used a Dimensional to pop up one of the flowers so it could also hang over the edge of the cardstock. The dies make it so easy to cut out all the blooms.

Then I attached a 1″ X 5-1/2″ strip of DSP to my stamped image before wrapping a piece of ribbon around it.

Next I attached the whole piece to a Coast Cabana cardbase ( 8-1/2″ X 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″).

The sentiment was heat embossed in white on a piece of Fresh Freesia and diecut using the 3rd smallest circle from the Layering Circles dies. I finished off the card by embellishing it with the gorgeous and new Iridescent Rhinestones.

I also stamped the inside layer of the card and the envelope – everyone likes receiving pretty happy mail 🙂

You can see all the other details of the card in the video below.
