Thank You Card using Stampin' Up! Writing Notes Background Stamp

Monday 5 October 2015

I hope you enjoyed the weekend and Saturdays Blog Hop to celebrate World Card Making Day 2015.

I love taking part in the blog hops and I can't believe that was my 8th Blog Hop since my blog went live in July 2014. Its great having the opportunity to showcase my work alongside talented demonstrators. I regularly find inspiration from them and love seeing techniques I've never tried before.

After looking at everyone's cards on yesterdays blog hop, I now need to try the Bokeh technique and also stamping over an embossed image.

Today's card simply showcases the Writing Notes background stamp and the Whisper White Thick Cardstock (which I have been using a lot lately - I love it!).

I wasn't sure what to do with this background stamp so I decided just to stamp the image onto Whisper White cardstock and take it from there. I chose Marina Mist ink. When I think of lined note pads this colour immediately came to mind.

Seeing the image stamped onto the cardstock, I decided not to go overboard with any other stamping or embellishments as I really liked the look as it was. It reminded me of simple cards you might find in somewhere like Paperchase.

I stamped the sentiment True Friend from the Endless Thanks stamp set between the lines of the note pad, the photopolymer stamps made it really easy to position the stamp. I then added Thank You from the same stamp set at the top.

I still really feel it needs something else but I am not sure what. Perhaps a flower or butterfly in the bottom right hand corner?

I stamped the lined image inside the card as well. I thought it would be nice to write a personal note within image (although I am not sure if my handwriting is small or neat enough to fit between the lines).

I hope you enjoyed my project today. I'd love to know what you would do with this stamp set! or what you would add to my card....please leave a comment as I would love to know your opinion.
