These are the thank you cards I made, using stamps from the new Autumn/Winter catalogue. I love this little deer, which is part of the White Christmas stamp set, and the tiny leaves come from Holiday Home. I liked the idea of keeping it clean and simple, with the deer standing in some autumn leaves.
Then I stepped it up for a birthday card for Kelly, whose birthday is today. She’s not going to have a great birthday as she’s nursing a particularly nasty leg injury but I’m afraid I didn’t have time to make a Get Well card, too!
The "Celebrate" comes from the new Good Greetings hostess set – free to any hostess who holds a £200 party before the end of October! This is on top of any other hostess benefits, so get booking!
For the VHC thank you cards, I used Black Stazon and coloured them with blender pens and Baked Brown Sugar ink. This was because I was waiting for my new Blendabilities to arrive. Also, I was waiting for my new Stazon Cleaner to arrive and have now discovered that it’s too late to clean the black ink from the photpolymer stamp. I’m not bothered – at least I can see it easily now! –but you might be, so clean them immediately if you can.
For Kelly’s card, my Blendabilities had arrived, so I used those. I found the Crumb Cake pens much darker than anticipated but they do look nice and blend very well together. As I was using alcohol markers, I stamped the deer using Memento Tuexdo Black ink.
- When using a water-based colouring medium (such as our Stampin’ Write markers), you need a permanent ink such as Stazon.
- When using an alcohol-based colouring medium (such as Blendabilities), you need a water-based ink such as Memento.
