Thank You with Five Techniques

I had some great plans to create many projects while Seasonal Expressions 2 2017 was valid (and it is still valid for 60 or so more hours), but time got away from me. I started creating with the Scripty Thank You stamp (A1206) and the coordinating Thin Cuts—Basic Ovals (Z3328). My plan was to make a set of cards.

While I did not complete the cards, I wanted to give you some ideas for using this stamp in different ways. Starting in the upper right and working clockwise, here is some information about how I created each stamped image:
  • I stamped with Sea Glass pigment ink (retired) and embossed with Ranger™ Clear Super Fine Embossing Powder (Z2088)
  • I stamped with VersaMark™ Ink Pad (Z891), I did not realize my ink pad needed re-inking, and embossed with Ranger™ Clear Super Fine Embossing Powder (Z2088). Then I used Watercolor Paints (Z3132) to paint the die cut.
  • I stamped with Black Memento™ Ink Pad (Z899), colored with ShinHan markers then covered with Shimmer Brush—Clear (Z3293) The markers I used were: Leaf Green, Vivid Green, Golden Yellow, Lavender, Tender Pink, Cherry Pink. I searched my stash for some larger oval dies and found Spellbinders Classic Ovals Small (S4-112) to cut a larger, similar, but not identical oval to the largest Thin Cut. I used 3-D Foam Tape under the middle of the White Daisy cut and Thin 3-D Foam Tape on the edges so the top layer has a convex effect. The bottom oval is cut using Sea Glass cardstock (retired)
  • I stamped using the rock and roll technique with Lemon and Tangerine inks
  • I covered with Shimmer Brush—Clear (Z3293) and waited for it to dry. Then I stamped with Sapphire ink.
If your family speaks French or Spanish, the Scripty Thank You stamp is also available in those languages. The product numbers are A1206F and A1206S.

I hope you like my ideas for using the same stamp in different ways.
