Thank You For Listening Sentiment

Hi Everybody,

We all make thank you cards for people to thank them for things they have done for us, thanking them for their time, etc.  How many times have you vented to a friend, or running ideas by a friend, etc., I have the perfect stamp set and sentiment just for this very cause.  

I am using a stamp set from Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps called Thankful Blooms.  I love the big, bold flowers in this set.  I chose to stamp them in Fall colors but of course you can stamp in brighter colors such as pink, softer colors such as aqua or lilac and even red would look great as well.  Since these are solid image stamps, you will need to stamp a couple of times to get good coverage.  I stamped with the Misti and pressed normally the first time and very, very light with the second time. 

I used Colorbox dye inks in Pumpkin, Raspberry and Mustard for the flowers and Bamboo Leaves by Memento for the leaves and then cut everything out with coordinating dies. (these are no longer available but stamp set is)

I used Gina K Designs Heavy Base Weight Ivory for the base and Honey Mustard for the background.  I embossed with an embossing folder by We R Memory Keepers called Next Level, Woven.  It comes in a set of two folders. These provide the deepest impression of any folders I have every had.  

I used some Gina K Designs Layering Weight Ivory card stock and cut out the stitched tag from Paper Smooches.  I embossed the sentiment with Brutus Monroe Penny Embossing Powder.  If you are in the market to try some new embossing powders, I think you will really like these.  I sponged around the edge of the tag with copper pigment ink and thought it needed to be a little darker so I went back over with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Gathering Twigs using a jumbo sponge dauber. 

I tied a bow with some natural twine and added a few glitter enamel dots in a golden color to finish it off. 

I just love the sentiments in this stamp set and the different combinations that the words can be used as.  If you vent to friends, like I do, you might like to pick this set up and use the Thank You for listening sentiment and I promise the recipient will love it.

I hope I inspired you to rethink your thank you cards and take them to the next level to make them even more special and meaningful.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
