Thank You Card

First off, THANK YOU and WELCOME to all my new followers! I have reached my goal with your help to reach 100+ followers. Tomorrow's post will have the details on how to make sure you are entered into the drawing for the Hoot n' Holler cartridge! This is one of my favorites and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do!

Now for the card. Since my birthday is tomorrow, I needed to get started on some Thank You cards to send out to some friends and family that have sent me gifts! I also found a challenge on Creative Cutter Room's blog for "Thank You" cards!

Items used:
  • Embossed DCWV card base
  • Memento Ink 
  • buttons
  • pop dots
  • Pink by design sentiment stamp
  • Tim Holtz distressing ink (Walnut Stain)
This card was so easy! I pulled out my DCWV card bases that are already embossed, and picked a cute one! I then took a memento dew drop in Grape Jelly and rubbed it all over the front of the card base to draw your attention to the embossing! I then added the sentiment stamp using Memento Lilas Posies. I also distressed the edges of my card base with my Tim Holtz distressing ink! I then used pop dots to attach the 4 buttons to the front of the card!



  1. Ooo, what a wonderful technique! I was actually just looking at Dew Drops online today. I have a regular Memento pad in black for stamping, and I was thinking about getting a bunch of colors. They're $1.19 on Joann.com so I was thinking I could get a bunch. Is the ink pad like, squishy foam or is it the same as the regular ink pads? Let me know if you have the chance. Thanks in advance! loveandsushi.blogspot.com

  4. Hi Samantha! I'm a new follower of your blog. We met recently (you sat next my daughter at Memory Bound during Paula's make and take). I'd love it if you'd check out my blog too!
    Can't wait to see what you create next!


  5. Rachel - The dewdrops are not squishy, but not super firm if that makes since. They are a lot like the larger stamp pads from Memento! I got a entire set at Hobby Lobby this past weekend and am LOVING them! If they are on sale at JoAnn's I would buy some!

    Amy- Thanks! And I know, I was shocked to see the numbers climb so fast today! Sarah from Pink by design / Pink Cricut was kind enough to post a link to my blog on her facebook letting people know about my blog!

    JulieK - Welcome! I do remember sitting next to your daughter this weekend! And I will head on over and check out your blog and to become a follower!

  6. Such a cute blog-and card-congrats on reaching this many followers. You are sure to get so many more. I will keep coming back to check out the fun. Thanks for sharing your card in the Creative Cutter Room. hugs Cathie
