Continuing to be Thankful... with the Stampin' Up So Very Much Stamp Set

Only in New England would I be walking around with short sleeves and my capri leggings on today (in the house, but still!) and then expecting up to a foot of snow in a blizzard tomorrow, right?

Crazy weather. It messed with my class schedule again this week. I had to postpone card class last week because of weather and tomorrow I had another class planned... ah well, we'll do that next week instead, and I'll have a snow day tomorrow. Too bad a snow day nowadays is just a regular ol' work day when you work from home! It's okay, though. I'm totally loving the full-time stampin' life. It's great!

Anyway, I wanted to continue on with another sample I made using the So Very Much stamp set. It is one of the freebies you can earn during Sale-A-Bration.

Do you ever get stuck when you're trying to create? I do! In fact, I was having trouble getting started when I was working with this set so I went back to the Sale-A-Bration brochure where I found these samples:


I actually did an exact copy of the card on the left (except I added some inking around the edges of the white). And I liked the card on the right, but I wanted to add a little more pizzazz as this one was just a tad too simple for me (especially since the two other cards I had designed were pretty simple, too. You can see those here and here).

So here is what I came up with...



I added a little background stamping using the "for your kindness" sentiment and tone on tone stamping (one of my favorite things to do!). Here I used Rose Red ink on Rose Red cardstock. I loved the washi tape effect in the original card so I added a couple of pieces of washi tape and a Pool Party cardstock mat. The finishing touch was the little flower and a pearl (the flower is from the Tree Builder punch).

Overall, still relatively simple. Another great card to create a stash of for when those thank you needs arise! What do you think? Are you liking this set? Was it one you thought you'd want when we first started the week?

Thanks for visiting today! If you'd like to shop and earn this stamp set for free... just find $50 worth of goodies you need in my store and you can select So Very Much (#143340-wood; #143343-clear) as your freebie. And if you need help finding $50 worth of new toys... give me a shout! ;)
