A World of Thanks, Awesomely Artistic

Hello, Stampers! It’s convention week in Salt Lake City and I couldn’t go again this year! Boohoo!! I am happy that Stampin’ Up! allows us demonstrators who have to stay home and “hold down the fort” an opportunity to see what we are missing! It looks like everyone is having a grand time and with the fantastic Holiday Catalog reveal, it was worth the trip for anyone who was able to go. I really hope to go one day…

On to the card… There is a place on the Stampin’ Up! website where we demonstrators are able to make suggestions for stamp sets, punches, Big Shot accessories, embellishments, etc. I had put in a suggestion a while back for a stamp set that had lots of different languages on it. We live in such a multicultural world now and I just thought it would be cool to have a stamp set that reflected that. So, when I saw A World of Thanks in the new Annual Catalog, I was so happy! I would have liked to see more languages but the idea is still there and so, of course, I just had to buy it! When I got it, I realized that it was essentially a background stamp, so then I had to figure out how to use it. The Triple Time Stamping technique came to mind and this card was born. But I wanted to do something a little different by stamping the image in three different colors and then trimming the layers of the first and second images. It was not a “fast and easy” card but it really didn’t take too much time either. I really love the end result! I thought you might like to see the stamped image so here it is:

  1. How did you line up those sentiments? Tips please! I love this color grouping, the use of lace and sequins……I’m having trouble keeping the lace bows adhered- any suggestions? That dragonfly is the sole reason I want that particular set, BTW, and you are helping me make my case for it! (Thanks, I think)
    Another beauty, Debbie. TFS!

    • LOL Cindie! I also wanted Awesomely Artistic for that beautiful dragonfly! It’s nice to have something other than butterflies once in awhile. I also had issues with the lacy bows till I went with the trusty and dependable dimensionals. They work great!! As far as lining up the sentiments, it’s all in the measurements of the layers, so here they are: going back to front: first, I stamped 3 layers of whisper white cardstock measuring 5.25″ x 4″, then the second layer, I trimmed off all sides to make it measure 4.50″ x 3.25″. The last layer is done the same way but to 3.75″ x 2.5″, which is .75″ off each side from the first layer. Then I added coordinating cardstock to each layer, then laid them down to line up the sentiments. Hope that all makes sense to you. Don’t worry about being perfect, it will look great regardless. Feel free to email me with any other questions.

  2. Love the card. The colors are so beautiful together.

  3. Like the card very much. Colors are great. Also would like tips. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Debbie, what a beautiful card. Congratulations to you that SU took your suggestion for a stamp. I love the stamp and all of your cards that you have posted. Keep up the good work.

  5. It is a beautiful thank you card in so many languages. I have seen triple time stamp done with many images but this is the first I have seen with a sentiment. Love the colors that you chose. I bet you were sorry that you did not have the Blushing Bride sequin trim… I just love all the colors of our sequin trim. Don’t remember if I pinned this card when I saw it briefly a couple of days ago, but, no mind… It will have to get pinned again…
