My Hand Penned Design Thank You Card - Share it on a Sunday

 Hi Everyone,

This week, the theme was 'hand stamped dsp'. I love to make up my own designs and colour schemes. This time I thought I would get some ink on the new Hand Penned Petals stamp set and I have combined it with a sentiment from Colour and Contour.


1 piece of gorgeous grape card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4"
1 piece of basic black card stock 3 7/8" x 5 5/8"
1 piece of basic white card stock 3 7/8" x 5 5/8" and 1 piece 3 5/8" x 5 3/8"
Colour and Contour stamp set
Hand Penn-d Petals stamp set
Gorgeous grape ink
Highland heather ink
Fresh freesia ink
Daffodil delight ink
Polished pink ink
Pear Pizzazz ink
Memento Black ink
Simply scored
Bone folder
Multipurpose adhesive


On the long side, score the gorgeous grape at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make a landscape card.

Stamp your design on the smaller of the two white pieces using black for the outline stamps and then filling in the flowers and leaves in whatever combination you want. I've stamped off the edge of the card and all around the edges leaving the middle section free for the sentiment. I don't want to add any embellishments or sentiment mats, I want to just show off the images.  The filler stamps do not stamp the exact same image as the lined one, it is meant to be a watercolour wash type effect.  Stamp the sentiment in the centre of the white space that you have left.

Adhere the stamped layer to the basic black and add to the card front.

Adhere the remaining white piece on the inside of the card repeating some of the stamping if required.

Don't forget to pop over and see what Donna and Victoria have made too.
