exploration STAMPlorations sentiment builders: thank you (CASE, ABNH, SSS)

Back with the second installment of my exploration of STAMPlorations' latest release.  This time I've used the stamp set called SENTIMENT BUILDERS: Thank You.


Is that one versatile sentiment set or what?  Even an extra "s" so you can use the "thank you" or "thanks" version in combination with the other words.

So I found these challenges at A Blog Named Hero and CASE Study. And I'm hooking up once more to the Die Crazy challenge at Simon Says Stamp.



And made this card.


Another CAS, like yesterday's, but with a couple more techniques. I heat embossed the large "thanks" sentiment in white on white (although it's lookin' gray here) three times before adding the secondary sentiments in gray ink. TIP: Using an acrylic block with lines on it makes lining up the individual words of the smaller sentiments a piece of cake.

Then I die cut the blooms twice and inked them with the colors of Wida's embellishments. TIP: Leave intricate die cuts in their negative when inking and use a pouncing rather than swiping motion to prevent them breaking. I rounded all the corners and voila!

So, stay tuned for my third and final card tomorrow.  Remember to come by and leave a comment and you might be the lucky winner of a stamp set from the latest STAMPlorations release.


Supplies for triple thanks
Paper:  CS Bringmann
Stamps:  STAMPlorations
Ink : Distress Inks, Versamark, Hero Arts Granite
