ThankYouPom
I have been a fan of Savvy Stamps ever since I first discovered them years ago at a Rubber Stamp Convention in Puyallup, WA  There were many great stamp companies there at the show, but there was something about Cindi's simple designs and delightful card samples that absolutely enchanted me and always has–I've never been able to part with the first Savvy images I bought, even tho they have long since been retired.

The landscape Chevron image and Flower Blossom Outline recently came to live at my house (along with quite a few others from Savvy's most recent release–have you seen the darling bike? EEP!!!)

I had fun using my Memento Dew Drops to create a multi-colored effect on the Chevron image–just start with the lightest  colors first, and then add the darker ones.  I love Tsukineko's Memento Dew Drops because their tear-drop shape and smaller size make them very useful for multi-coloring images like this. I deliberately left the colors "unblended" and I LOVE the look!

Initially I had planned to color the blossom, so I stamped it with Archival Jet Black, but I liked it so much just like it was, in contrast to the multi-colored background that I just punched it out (1 3/4" Circle Punch) and 3D mounted it and highlighted the center of it with glitter glue.  Um, that was easy!

Another fun thing I tried was to rub/drag the Pear Tart Dew Drop across the Thank You Flag–most of the time we're always trying to get a perfectly even application of ink, but I think the streaks look kinda cool and different on this particular stamp! Accented it with a narrow strip of some black & white piano stripe Washi Tape from my stash, and that was all she wrote!

And…

Y'all know what happened next…

  1. You are too sweet! I have missed all of this action on your blog using Savvy!! Love the samples – so fun to see your ideas! Cindi

  2. The black elements on this card are just beautiful against the bright colors. LOVE it!

  3. Bestill my heart. I’ve been coveting that Thank You stamp, and now that I’ve seen it in action (on this and your last card, too), it must go in my cart. Must. Love how bright and cheery this is. Love all the little touches like the dragged ink and the unblending.

  4. Sent ya’ an email, Jenn! Thanks! :)

  5. I love this cheerful, happy card!

  6. Julie,
    I can’t get the email link to work so I can email you. I would like to find out if I can post on the Canvas Corp blog about your Tissuestock into Washi Tape tutorial. Please email me back to let me know if this is fine or not.
    Thanks!
