Looks Like Spring Greeting Card using Thanks A Bunch Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!


  • Thanks A Bunch Stamp Set: A Sale-A-Bration Selection
  • Sunshine & Smiles Paper Pumpkin Kit assembly video now available
  • Stamps added to the clearance rack offering! 

Here's another cute card using Thanks A Bunch Stamp Set.  While this set has many cute ideas for using this stamp set alone, I think this set will be so cute paired with other spring sets such as the Easter Bunny Bundle or the Playing In The Rain Set.  The Thanks A Bunch Stamp Set is one of the FREE Level 1 selections with a $50 order, less shipping and tax.    I used a color theme of Basic White, Pumpkin Pie, Granny Apple Green, and Garden Green to create this card.  I used the Cane Weave 3D embossing Folder and paper from the Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper Pack along with a two step stamping technique to add texture and color.  The Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper Pack is another Stampin' Up! Free Sale-A-Bration Selection.  It's a Level two Sale-A-Bration selection, FREE with a $100 purchase, and includes 48 sheets of 12" X 12" sheets; 4 each of 12 double-sided designs -- with colors perfect for Spring card making or memory keeping.  And that's a lot of paper!  Our paper packs normally include 12 sheets.  To finish my card, I added a couple of Champaign Basic Rhine Stones for a little bling.

The basecard for today's card is Thick Basic White Cardstock.  Then a layer of Basic White dry embossed using the Cane Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  Then I used the stitched Rectangle Dies to create a large Basic White rectangle to use as my image layer.

Next, I used two-step stamping images from the Thanks A Bunch Stamp Set to stamp carrots and carrot tops.  I stamped the Carrots in Pumpkin Pie. Then used another image in the stamp set to stamp "shading" on my carrot images.  I also used Pumpkin Pie ink to stamp the shaded images.  Then I stamp the carrot tops.  I stamped the large stems in Granny Apple Green, and stamped the lighter foliage in Garden Green Ink.

To finish my card, I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies to create a sentiment layer, and stamped one of the sentiments from the Thanks A Bunch Stamp Set onto the Basic White rectangle in Garden Green Ink.  Then, I selected one of the Designer Series Papers from the Dandy Designs 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper Pack and layered it under the sentiment layer, adding a little more color to the card.  To finish my card, I added a couple of small Champaign Rhinestones Basic Jewels.
