20 Washi Tape Thank You’s in a Jiffy

Label Love Gee Thanks Washi Tape Card stampingjulie.com
I always need a stack of thank you cards. But lately the need has been even greater. So many friends have helped me as I’ve prepared to move. I’ve had friends come over and help me do a bit of painting, cleaning and packing. Not only was their help wonderful for getting a lot done, it also was just GREAT to have the company and moral support. When I was a kid I used to beg my sister to just come sit in my room with me while I cleaned.  I’m a social cleaner, for sure.

I love to find a design that’s cute AND fast.  Washi tape came to the rescue on this note card.  I started with the note card pack of precut cards and envelopes.  And the Gingham Garden Washi Tape comes  as a pack of these three patterns that harmonize together.  Just tear off three strips and adhere for an instant colorful design.

And four punches really amped up the quick and fun factor.  I stamped ‘Gee, thanks’ from Really Good Greetings and punched it out with the Modern Label punch, then punched the end with a corner of the 1″ square punch.

The punched sentiment was layered on the base stamped with the Label Love stamp and punched out with the new and coordinating Artisan Label punch.  The center was decorated with a scallop circle punched from Whisper White cardstock spruced up with the Gingham wheel.

I used the same Gingham wheel to decorate the envelope flop for a coordinated surprise.  Don’t you just love getting a note card with a decorated envelope?!  Not much chance it will be mistaken as junk mail when you embellish the envelope.

A Thank You from a Friend

kristi's thanks card stampingjulie.com music theme
Today I’m sharing a wonderful thank you card I received from Kristi B. Isn’t it lovely?  Sending a handmade thank you card is special.  And as a piano teacher the musical theme was an extra special feature.

This is what Kristi said about making this card, “I made the music paper with a stamp and then distressed the edges. It has been one of my favorites.  I need to make some more of them.”

kristi's thanks card stampingjulie.com music theme

You can see after making the background paper that she then matted it with black card stock and off set that on the front of the card, trimming off the edges where it overhangs.  I love this idea and the pictures really don’t do this card justice!

I also love the way she used the clip to hang the tag to the card front.  So cute!  I’ll definitely be using this card design for inspiration!   Thanks, Kristi!

I used an Easter card to inspire today’s creation.  By using the basic design of a previous project it is easy way to be inspired and quickly design a new card!  And no one will guess you are copying off yourself!

best of butterlies epic day thank you card

The This and That Epic Day Designer Series Paper inspired my color choices.  To create the butterfly, I used the ‘rock n roll’ technique.  First I inked up the stamp with Daffodil Delight and then rolled the it in Calypso Coral before stamping.   This stamp works perfectly with the Elegant Butterfly punch and I also layered the butterfly on a punched Basic Gray butterfly.

Sketch-Inspired Patterned Occasions! Thanks a Ton!

patterned occasions thank you elephant

Isn’t this elephant from the Sale-A-Bration Patterned Occasions stamp set just stinking cute?!!  And when you stamp him in the deep purple of Rich Razzleberry all his little funky pattern is fabulously vivid.  A little touch of Tangerine Tango orange pops off the purple.

I punched him out with the 1-3/4″ circle punch and then layered it with dimensionals on punched 2-3/8″ scallop circle.  The flower on the stamp doesn’t quite fit in the circle punch, but that’s OK because I when you add a Itty Bitty punch flower and rhinestone over it.

For the Birds Thank You Card

for the birds marina daffodil thank you card


In the meantime, here’s a simple thank you card created with the Stampin’ Up! For the Birds stamp set.  I started with a card base of Natural White cardstock.

for the birds marina daffodil thank you card close up

I stamped the birds with black StazOn in and watercolored them with the aquapainter and various ink refills.  As usual, I didn’t try for perfection which I think is what makes watercoloring so charming!  Can you see the Crystal Effects added to the heart?

The bird tag was punched out with the Decorative Label Punch and lifted off the card with dimensionals.  It’s easy to pierce the paper to perfection with the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack, Tool and Mat. The thank you is from the Embellished Events stamp set.

Paper scoring is super quick and easy with the Simply Scored Scoring Tool. I added the Marina Mist cardstock panel after adding the punched scallop border, the scoring and the paper piercing.

The ribbon is tied from the Daffodil Delight Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon. This months newsletter included tips to tie the perfect bow!  Be sure and subscribe today to get your copy.

for the birds thank you card Originally when I made his card I placed the bow in the middle but I decided later I didn’t like it there.  Because I had created a separate bow and adhered it with a glue dot, I just gently eased if off and moved it where I wanted it.  I’m so much happier with the bow on the left!  What do you think?
