I love stamping…no shocker there! And I love a challenge!

So when I saw the Moxie Fab Stamp It! Cards Challenge – I knew I had to play!

You’d better get over there and play too…the grand prize is amazingly awesometastic…and all you’ve gotta do is make a stamped card! How tough could that be?!

My first stamped card is actually a SET of stamped card (you may or may not know this…but I have an addiction to sets of cards!)

With the summer months upon us, I am looking forward to attending lots of fun cookouts, picnics and dinner parties. And, because my mother raised me on the teachings of Emily Post, I know that the proper thing to do is thank the host…twice. Once in person and again by phone or with a written note.

Now, God would strike me down right here in the middle of this blog post if I sat here and told you that I always abide by this rule. I don’t. But there is no better time to start than now. And there is no better way to start than with a cute set of summery thank you cards!

These one layer cards are stamped from front to finish…no embellishments, no dimensional adhesives…just stamps and a little coloring.

I did a lot of mixing and matching to build this little picnic scene…so I thought I’d give you the rundown just like I did in this post…
I started by stamping the bottom with
PTI’s Background Basics: Gingham in red (pretty self-explanatory)
Next, I stamped the picnic basket and food using
PTI’s Vintage Picnic set
To make those little ants, I used the tiny dots that are included in
PTI’s Fruitful set…who even knew those were there?!
To give those little guys something to carry, I reached for
There She Goes Stamps’ Daily Grind set to add that sweet little pie!
Last up, I used Taylored Expression What’s Cookin’ ? set to add a
little cherry to the ants’ bounty as well as the perfect “Thanks for Dinner” sentiment!

I hope these photos are helpful!

Thanks for stopping by for some Damask Love!

Stamps: Taylored Expressions What’s Cookin?, There She Goes Stamps Daily Grind, PTI (Background Basics: Gingham, Vintage Picnic, Fruitful)

Keep on crafting with these other posts

  5. Awesome job, Amber! I love the way you show which stamps you used… it’s better than just a recipe listing, because it shows how you’re seeing the stamp outside of it’s obvious uses!
