Make a Splash Thank You Card Video Tutorial

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share a super cute card with you using the host/hostess stamp set Make A Splash from the January - June Mini Catalog from Stampin' Up!. This is a fun little stamp set and I am sad that it's a host set because it means it will retire at the end of the catalog period.  So if you like this fun little whimsical stamp set the way that I do you may want to get it with your host rewards ASAP.  Host Stamp Sets can only be earned with Host Rewards (Stampin' Rewards). with a qualifying order of $150 or more.  Just because it says host doesn't mean you have to have a party or event you can simply earn Stampin' Rewards by placing a qualifying order in my online store and use the earned rewards towards one of the host only stamp sets or other products.  Here's a look at my card.

Tips & Tricks: 

This is a quick and easy card to create and can be recreated in mass production if you need a lot of cute simple thank you cards to send out.  You can even do the stamping that I share in the video onto a piece of 12" x 12" Whisper White cardstock and cut it down and have a lot of card fronts at one time instead of stamping them one at a time.  One of my favorite techniques is to stamp my own designer series paper in custom colors and images that I love.  When I saw this set in the back of the January - June Mini Catalog I knew I had to have it.  I just loved the little goldfish so much; plus it's kind of hard to have live goldfish in the house when you have a couple kittens.  Kittens and goldfish do not play nice together.  I am just saying.  After stamping all my little beauties in a triangular format it was time to start putting the card together.

I added the stamped designer series paper (3 3/4 x 5 Imperial 13.9cm x 9.5cm metric) to a Mango Melody mat that I cut at 4 x 5 1/5 (14.4 cm x 10 cm).  I then stamped the sentiment onto a piece of scrap Mango Melody Cardstock and added it to the card front with a couple Stampin' Dimensionals.  I then added everything to my Thick Whisper White Card base that I cut at 4 1/4 x 11 scored and folded in half (29.7 cm x 10.5 cm).  And that finished off my card.  I told you it was super quick and easy to do.
