Stampin’ Up! Background Bits Thank You

Today, I am sharing three very quick and easy thank you cards I created with the Background Bits Host stamp set, from Stampin’ Up!  

Stampin' Up! Background Bits-Cardiology by Jari

I pulled out three of the Whisper White Note Cards and Envelopes and Backgound Bits to start.  When you host a party, you are eligible to purchase the host exclusive sets found in the catalog on pages 220-223 of the Annual Catalog. Don’t live close enough to me for a party in your home?  Well, email me about hosting your own catalog party.

I just love the new 2017-2019 In Colors, especially Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst and Fresh Fig, so I chose to use them in these simple thank you cards.

I stamped the single flower image from Background Bits in Lemon Lime Twist and Fresh Fig using the ink to rubber method.  This is where you apply ink to your stamp using Stampin’ Write Markers.  I cut out the image using a Stitched Shapes Framelits square and matted it with a little larger scalloped Layering Squares Thinlet in a panel from Fresh Florals Designer Series paper.  Next, I cut a length of Lemon Lime Twist 1/2″ Fine Woven Ribbon, notched the ends with Paper Snips and adhered it to the back of my squares with some Tear & Tape Adhesive.  I dry fit the art panel and used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the sentiment, also from Background Bits.  Finally, I adhered the art square with ribbon attached to the front of the note card with more Tear & Tape and some Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

For the next two cards, I chose to flip the cards vertically and used Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst inks and coordinating paper from the Fresh Florals DSP.   Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist 1/2″ Woven Ribbon lengths were added behind each art panel as described above.

    How perfect for note cards! I love that single flower design and layering with that strip of ribbon. Those are my favorite new colors too and they coordinate so well on your pretty cards. Love it! TFS.
