Pretty Patchwork Thank You

Hello everyone,

I'm back to crafting the Crop thank you cards.  Today's card uses up some more leftovers and a great two-step stamp.

The printed paper are of unknown origin.  The images are Stampin' Up Delight in Life stamped in Crumb Cake, Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry and Lovely Lilac on Whisper White and layered on Lovely Lilac.  The sentiment is Hero Arts Everyday Sayings stamped in Crumb Cake.  The embellishments are Doodlebug baby girl assortment mini pearls and Kaisercraft pearl strips coloured with a Playful Purple Bic marker.

This is one really cheerful card.  I've always loved this scrap of pretty printed squares.  I've been rather enamoured with two-step or layered stamps ever since I crafted this Christmas card.  I always use my stamp positioner when I use a two-step stamp even though they are suppose to be more free-hand.  I just like a neater look.  I didn't have a purple pearl so I used a tip I got from Susan Riahala's Simplicity blog - she uses her Bics and Sharpies to colour match her embellishments.  It's rather brilliant.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.

  1. What a pretty bright card. I have a little piece of that paper. I think it is by Sizzix when they used to put out those Sizzlet paper pads (old stuff).
