Thank You cards are always needed and today’s is a quick one.  Using the Shaded Summer stamp and matching Die set it came together easily.


Stampin' Up!, Shaded Summer, Summer Shadow Dies, Deckled Rectangle Dies, Lovely Layers Vellum, Sweet Sorbet Ribbon, Jackie Beers



It is very unusual for me to say a color choice came from anywhere other than some designer paper.  But today’s card color choice came from the stamp and me wanting a Red Rose!  Then it became a pretty simple and quick card by stamping tone on tone for the base.  Which is another unusual technique for me because I tend to have a few layers.  But today’s card is mostly Sweet Sorbet all the way!


The stamp set for this sweet flower, I believe it is a rose???, is the Shaded Summer stamp set.  The Tone On Tone was done using Sweet Sorbet Ink on the Sweet Sorbet card base using the smaller flower stamp.  Then using the larger one I stamped on a scrap of White and fussy cut only the flower.  With not wanting the card totally one color, I opted for stamping the large image using Pale Papaya.  The softness blends well with the Sweet Sorbet, even if it is not a green as expected.

Adding the sentiment took a bit of thought.  In trying something different, I stamped the sentiment and then did a bit of fussy cutting around it.  Most of the edges are straight lines, but I did go around the Y and u on each end.

Dies and Vellum

A matching Die set for the Shaded Summer stamp set is the Summer Shadow Dies.  They are not a bundle however.  The dies were released as a special edition last year and then added to the Annual Catalog in June.  Personally I was thrilled because dies for flowers are awesome!  So the large Pale Papaya flower was Die cut and then the fussy cut Sweet Sorbet flower was layered in to place.

The second Die is the Deckled Rectangles Dies.  It was used on the Vellum layer.  And it may be a bit difficult to see in the photo, but is very noticeable in person.  The Third largest die was used for this piece.  Lovely Layers Vellum is a package of Layer Sized pieces of vellum.  Some are printed and most are the same as I used.


To give the card a bit of bling and shine, there are three different elements.  First is the Wink of Stella on the red flower.  That leaves a very subtle bit of shine.  Secondly is the beautiful Sweet Sorbet Metallic Ribbon bow. This ribbon is available in all of the new In Colors and is a dream to tie bows with.  And the metallic shine is a perfect touch.  Finally there are three of the 2021-2023 Opals in the Pale Papaya scattered around.
