Stampin’ Up! Pretty Thankful Smile Card

I used the new Pretty Thankful and Dots for Days stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! to create my card to share today.

Pretty Thankful - Stamp With Amy K

The layout for my card was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #194.Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 1.43.35 PMThe colors for my card were inspired by Pals Paper Arts #259.

I started by stamping the square frame image from the Pretty Thankful photopolymer stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I sprinkled the image with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder and I heat embossed it.

Pretty Thankful 2 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the frame image on two Post-It Notes and snipped around them to create masks.  I adhered one of the masks over the silver embossed frame, then stamped the frame image in Pacific Point ink over the silver frame.  I covered the Pacific stamped frame with the second Post-It Note mask, inked up the Dots For Days stamp in Real Red ink, stamped it on scrap paper once, then stamped it over the Whisper White panel.

Pretty Thankful 3 - Stamp With Amy K

I removed the masks, then stamped the sentiments from the Pretty Thankful stamp set in Pacific Point and Real Red inks.  Because this stamp set is photopolymer, I could carefully ink up part of the sentiment in Pacific Point and part of it in Real Red before stamping it.

I stamped three flowers in Real Red ink around the sentiment, then inked up the little bow image in Pacific Point ink and I stamped it on a separate panel of Whisper White card stock.  I snipped around it and adhered it to the stamped panel with a Glue Dot.

Pretty Thankful 1 - Stamp With Amy K

I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Real Red card stock, then to a panel from the Silver Foil Sheets with SNAIL.  I wrapped a strand of Pacific Point 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon around the panel and tied a bow, then adhered the layered panel to a Pacific Point card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Pretty Thankful 4 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the little flower images from the Pretty Thankful stamp set in Pacific Point ink across a panel of Whisper White card stock inside the card.
