How to make a Thank you card using stamp sets & Giveaway

We are big fans of Thank you cards, I do try to get the kids to make or at least write them, sadly I didn’t manage to get around to doing Christmas ones (I have no idea where the time has gone) but I do now need to get Emmy to do some Thank You’s for her Birthday presents.
With this in mind I have teamed up with Stampin’ Up! to bring you this lovely tutorial on how to make a Thank You card using different stamp sets and also a Stamp set giveaway.
Step One:

Take a sheet of A4 cardstock. Using the Trimmer, trim into two A5 pieces. Take one of the halves and fold into a card.

Step two:

Take your second piece of A5 cardstock and stamp the sentiment. Ink your 3 daubers, one in each colour. Starting with the lighter colours, tap the daubers on to the stamp; apply ink to the areas you want – this is called the Rainbow effect. Stamp the sentiment near to the top.

Step three:

Using the Bigshot – take the Labels Framlet (8.3cm) and place over the ‘thanks’ sentiment, making sure it’s in the middle. Then take the labels Framlet (10.2cm) place below and sandwich between the Bigshot plates.

Step four:

Take the sentiment part to the Grid Paper. Using the daubers, gently shade in the outline using a circular motion. Take the larger Framlit cut out and gently shade in the outline, again using the circular motion and the two remaining colours

Step five:

Using the Masking Mask Love Hearts, colour in your base card with the daubers.

Step six:

Mount the larger labels framelit (10.2cm) and centre on the card. Take the second die cut (8.3cm) and use dimensional to affix it. Scatter the rhinestones around the card using different sizes.

  1. I think they are great – a nice activity for the kids and a way of showing kids that you should be thankful and grateful for what you receive

  2. Depending on how organised I am (I.e. how much time I have set aside to do this), how close the relationship and how grateful I am for whatever it is then I will make a card. If I am pressed for time then I'm afraid I resort to a shop bought card.

  3. I used to make cards but I've got out of the habit of doing it so would love to win this as it would spur me on to start making them again!

  4. i used to make all my cards, but the last year has been physically and emotionally draining for me that almost all my crafty items are stored away. i am due to leave uni soon and i hope that i can dig them out again soon

  5. I realised the other day that we forgot to do Xmas ones – feel awful now, but in the midst of househunting and a month of poorly kids one after the other it just slipped my mind! Love the look of the stamps!

  6. I make all my own cards and this kit is gorgeous, such good components. People don't say thank you enough , thank you for sharing xxx

  7. I always write thank you cards and used to make my own, as well as other cards – until my children came along and now unfortunately don't find the time to make them. But I ask the children to write thank you cards now and when they were smaller thank you drawings 🙂
