Thank you cards! I don't know about you, but my holiday season is filled with family get-togethers, present unwrapping, and cookie bakes. I have a lot to be thankful for, and I wanted to get a jump-start on the cards I know I'll be itching to give to thank all of the people involved in creating my Christmas spirit.
This weekend, I sat down to create a set of cards using the Sentiment Builders: Thank You set. I love the sentiment builders because there are so many different sayings you can create with one set! It's one of the (many) reasons I fell in love with STAMPlorations.
I decided to use an old technique my grandmother taught to me: stamping with sweetened condensed milk. It sounds messy (and it is!), but it creates this aged textural feel that will leave people wondering just what the heck is on your card - in a good way.
To start the process, pour a small amount of sweetened condensed milk onto a pad of paper towels in a dish.
When I was searching for new challenges, I stumbled on the STAMPlorations blog and fell in love! I am such a fan of vintage, sketchy stamps and the STAMPlorations designs work so well in that realm. And the girls in the design team are truly some of the nicest crafters around.
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial and I'll see you around the web!
