For Being You stamp set, offered as an additional Sale-A-Bration free item by Stampin’ Up! on March 1st, provides the perfect heartfelt “THANKS” sentiment. The large sentiment “THANKS” can be colored with any coloring technique of your choice. It also would be great stamped onto a designer series paper/colored cardstock and featured as a single main image or fussy cut into six letters and paper pieced. I adore the two sentiments “for all you do” and “for being you” also included in the image set.
When I saw the sketch for Pals Paper Arts 245, a sweet design by Nicole Watt, I decided to use a sheet of Sheer Perfection Designer Vellum Stack (also a newly released SAB item) that had a large “white” space on top where I could stamp THANKS. My selection has the flower stems running on the bottom. These were colored on the back using our vintage Calypso Coral and Wild Wasabi alcohol pens. I used Soft Sky alcohol inks and the Soft Sky stampin’ write marker (darkened edges) with the sentiment. A tie of Soft Sky seam binding ribbon, five itty bitty punched Calypso Coral flowers and a sprinkle of pearl jewels finished the top panel. The vellum was backed onto Naturals Ivory cardstock and then again onto Island Indigo. Calypso Coral provides the card base. The inside is self explanatory. Did you notice the designer vellum also on the envelope… makes a good duo, don’t you think?
Have you played along with the PPA this week. Click here or on the sketch picture above to see inspiration by Design Team 2. They would love to see you play along.

Have fun stamping,
