Stampin’ Up! Thankful Life for TGIFc98

I used the Thankful Life Host Exclusive stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to create my card to share with you today.  


Stampin' Up! Thankful Life by Cardiology by Jari


The inspiration for my card design is from the sketch at TGIFc98 this week


Thankful Life, is a Host Exclusive set, which means you must Host a Stampin’ Up! event to purchase it, or you could join my Online Host Club and purchase it the month you are the host.  See all of the information about joining my Online Host Club farther down in my post.  

One of the things I love about Thankful Life is that it is a photopolymer stamp set and so easy to line up all of the images!  I stamped the vase first in Mint Macaron onto a panel of Whisper White, then added the three different images of flowers onto the panel.  I used Watermelon Wonder, Peekaboo Peach and Mint Macaron ink.   Then, I stamped one more vase in Mint Macaron and cut it out with my Paper Snips and added a bow with Linen Thread.  It was popped on top of the original stamped vase with Dimensionals.

I stamped one of the smallest butterflies from Papillon Potpourri in Watermelon Wonder, onto a panel of Peekaboo Peach and punched it out with my Bitty Butterfly Punch.  The sentiment is from All Things Thanks and was stamped in Tip Top Taupe, then die cut with the small banner from Bunch of Banners Framelits Dies.  I cut an extra banner in Tip Top Taupe and adhered it to the back of the sentiment banner.  I used a Mint Macaron Doily from the 2015-2017 In Color Doilies pack with a little Mint Macaron Glimmer Paper underneath it before adhering it to my Peekaboo Peach layers.  To add just a little more bling, I place three Rhinestones opposite the butterfly and popped the art panel and the banner onto the front with Dimensionals.

I stamped the Thankful Life sentiment in Tip Top Taupe ink, then stamped a butterfly in Peekaboo Peach.  A strip of the Playful Palette DSP that I used on the front was added to the bottom and all adhered to the Mint Macaron card stock base with liquid glue.  

A complete list of stamping supplies used to create this card will be at the end of my post along with card stock cuts in inches.
