Thank You so much - two ways

Welcome to my blog today.  Do you ever find yourself feeling overwhelmed and wonder where to start?  Wanting to craft, but feeling stumped for ideas?  Our latest Team challenge was to CASE the Stampin' Up! catalogue, which is a perfect solution for a creativity lull.  

The catalogue is filled with amazing products and they are supported by enticing photos of stunning projects.  I chose to make a thank you card using A Big Thank You on page 122 of the catalogue.  As a warm up, I just copied the catalogue! Having a starting point is always great because you know it will work when you put the colours and different elements together.  Then you get more ideas and can become more creative and adventurous!

The Thank You die is so useful and is easy to use, especially when you apply the adhesive to the reverse before die cutting to make attaching it on the card super easy.  So, I set about making a variation using different colours - Thank You cards are always needed, and being notecard size makes them perfect for a quick little note of thanks!

The stamps are photopolymer making the stripes easy to line up.  I stamped from top to bottom aligning the edge of the stamp with the inked image above it, and cleaned the stamp between each colour to avoid a muddy inky mess.  I liked this colourway and proceeded to make a birthday card too. 

Which part of the catalogue will you take inspiration from and where will your creativity take you?

As always, happy crafting,
