On a previous post I showed you the cute Thank You cards using the Party Pandas and they had a fun Brusho background. (If you missed it then head back 2 posts).
Today I have a similar little card to show you using the Brusho Crystals but this time using the Charming Cafe set. These little cards are to welcome new members to my team who have joined during Sale-A-Bration. It’s so nice to have them in the JEN’s INK team. 🙂
Here are a couple of them for you to see.
Aren’t they fun backgrounds? Each time they turn out different. The pieces were made in my Brusho classes to demonstrate how they work before each class member made their own. I thought why not use them for these cards rather than waste them.
For these I sprinkled over some Brusho Crystals and I used Glossy card this time. Then I spritzed lightly with water. I also tilted the cards slightly so you get the colour run.
The pieces were then adhered to a small card base made with the Thick Whisper White card. You can make these any size but to give you the approximate size of these.
The Brusho card piece measures 8cm x 12.4cm ( 3 1/8″x 4 7/8″). The card base is 8.4cm x 24.8cm, scored at 12.4cm. (3 3/8″ x 7.3/4″ scored 4 7/8″ ** Please check the imperial size measurements beforehand).
The sweet little cafe chairs and table from the Charming Cafe set was stamped and coloured with Watercolor Pencils then cut with the Framelits. Once I had adhered the Brusho piece to the card base then a vellum circle cut with the Stitched Circle Framelits was lightly adhered to the front. So you couldn’t see the adhesive I added some dabs of snail adhesive near the centre so it would be covered with the table and chairs. Then the Table and chairs were raised up with Dimensionals. The sentiment piece is from the Color Me Happy set and simply stamped in Black and cut around. Before they were adhered down I looped around some Silver Thread.

Thanks for stopping by,
A few weeks back now I had a big Brusho Weekend on the blog here. You might remember it. If not then head back some posts and you will see lots of fun projects with these great Brusho Crystals. Recently I made up some mini Thank You cards for people who bought the Brusho Crystals over the weekend. I thought it was time I showed you some of them.
Gotta love those Party Pandas. I will miss these little fellows.
The base card measures 10.5cm x 15cm (approximately 4 1/8″ x 6 1/8″). They are scored half way on the long side. The card piece that I created the background with was slightly smaller and I used Shimmery White for this.
To create the background I sprinkled over some Prussian Blue Brusho Crystals and then used the Spritzer with water and sprayed lightly over the card. You can watch the Crystals change before your eyes. It’s quite magical to watch. The more water you add the more “dilute” or “whispery” it becomes. Each card piece you do will end up different. Just amazing really!
I let the card pieces dry and then stamped the little Panda in Memento Black and coloured the envelope he has with the Stampin’ Blends. The heart was coloured with the Stampin’ Write Markers. Just a simple sentiment is all that is required I think. That was stamped on a small piece of Daffodil Delight and snipped down to size. The sentiment and Panda were raised up with Dimensionals on the coloured card piece which had been adhered to the White card base.
Thanks for looking.
PS: Not much time left to get your Party Panda set or other Sale-A-Bration choice Free with your qualifying order. Don’t leave it too late.
I thought I would show you the mini Thank you cards I made for my customers last month using the Lots of Lavender set available for Sale-A-Bration.
I have to say, in my hurry to get them out I missed stamping the “thanks” on the front. Silly me! 🙂 I had the stamp set on my desk too. Never mind! I wrote inside to say Thanks to them and that I appreciate their order. I like to send little notes like these often. They don’t need to be big standard size cards. For these I used the Narrow Note Cards and Envelopes in the Occasions Catalogue.
The Lots Of Lavender set is a great 2 step stamp set. Some of the time (well most of the time) I don’t feel like colouring, so you can stamp the outline and then fill in the image with another stamp. I used 2 colour variations. One on the left – Powder Pink and Berry Burst. On the right (Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant). The leaves were stamped in Wild Wasabi. I went over the lines of the leaves with the Wild Wasabi marker. The stems were coloured with the Old Olive marker. I added a little bow with the Linen Thread and attached it with a Glue Dot.
This is the Lots of Lavender set if you hadn’t noticed it in the Occasions Catalogue. It’s great for quick cards. This set is one of the free choices available for Sale-A-Bration with orders over $90.
Thanks for visiting my little corner of Blogland. I do appreciate each one of you. I wish I could send a Thank You card to each and everyone of you. xx
You can order online now -> HERE and grab your Lots of Lavender set (or one of the other free choices) OR contact me directly.
I forgot to show you some Thank You cards I have made recently for customers and team members. These are all little 10cmx10cm (4″x4″) cards. I like making these size cards.
This first one uses the Vertical Greetings set. I don’t use this set nearly as much as I should. It is so cute. I coloured the stamps with the markers to get the different colours. One heart version was in Sweet Sugarplum and the other heart version was in Flirty Flamingo. A little Linen Thread bow finished them off. These cards where made for my customers a couple of months ago. Yes it has taken this long to show you.
This next little cutie card using the Baby Bear stamp set was for some of my team members for an online team event we had last month. I wanted to send out a “Thanks” for them sharing in the Facebook group event.
Side Note: Hey! Have you considered joining Stampin’ Up!?? Not just for the discount (although that’s great!) but for all the team fun and the sharing and the creating and the …. Really, so many reasons why!
Let me know if you would like more information or stop by my page on this blog for “join my team”. See the link at the top of my blog.
This Thank You card was for a challenge on my Facebook page I held last month to share a card that my readers have made and I sent out a prize at random. The card was made up with some “bits” I had on my desk from another project. They come in handy sometimes. This one was using Happy Birthday Gorgeous set.
Mmm! I am noticing a pink theme here (sorry Lynda). Unintentional I assure you. 🙂
Have a great day and for all my US blog readers wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving. Enjoy the special celebrations. We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in Australia but I think it’s great to take some time and be Thankful for all that we have.
Just a quick one today. A few of you who know me or who follow me on Facebook know that a few weeks ago my gorgeous dog was attacked in a brutal dog attack. It was pretty distressing and I am not going to go in to the details again here. I still shudder thinking about it and I get all teary. I wanted to show you the cards I made for some wonderful neighbours who helped me out on the day in so many ways. They were just so wonderful. I have to say it is one way to get to know the neighbours 😉
These were just simple little cards measuring 10cmx10cm (4″x4″). I wanted to say THANKS for their help.
I have used Lost Lagoon and Hello Honey for the colours. I used the ‘Work of Art’ stamp set. The little paw prints are from the retired set ‘D is for Dog’. That is one retired stamp set that I have kept. I thought it was a cute little touch. I stamped the inside of the card with some paw prints too. After all it was from Scooby and I. One I added Gold sequins and the other I added Rhinestones.
Thankfully I can say that Scooby has made a full recovery after a little stay at the Vet and lots of extra TLC. He doesn’t seem too troubled by his experience thankfully. Here is my gorgeous boy. I wanted to spare you the gruesome photos. This is a cute photo of him taken a few months ago.
Thanks for stopping by and allowing me to share my little story today.
Have a wonderful day wherever you may be.
Just a quick post for you today. We are heading off for the weekend to our Church Camp. I get back Sunday and then get ready for Convention in Melbourne. So much excitement! I thought though I would show you these little Thank You cards I made for my lovely customers who have placed orders recently. I do appreciate them. 🙂
I have used the set ‘Happy Watercolor’ from the Occasions Catalogue. I can’t believe this set is not in the upcoming catalogue. So if you want this set you better grab it now!!
This is just a simple, quick card. They are 10cmx10cm cards (4″x4″). I stamped the flower in Baked Brown Sugar and the the splodge over the flower either in Crisp Canteloupe or Pistachio Pudding. I stamped the dots over the card and added the Thank You from the set. A little bow with the Linen Thread finished it off.
Have a wonderful weekend. I will stop by early next week and show you my swaps before I head to Melbourne.
