Easy Thank You card with My Meadow stamp set!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a cheerful thank you card featuring the My Meadow stamp set! While this stamp set is currently in the 2020 Mini Catalog, it will also be carrying over into the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, yay! This is one of those fun “scene building” stamp sets that you can create a big or a small scenery for different seasons throughout the year! If you aren’t sure where to start, you can start with something simple and then slowly work your way up to a bigger scene! Today, I’m showing you what I think is something around the middle, where the scene is the focal point, but you also have added DSP and embellishments!

For this card, the base layer is Crumb Cake cardstock cut at 4” x 5 ¼” and the next layer is this design from the 2019-2021 In Colors 6” x 6” DSP, in Terracotta Tile, cut at 3 ¾” x 5”:

For the card front, you will need:

1. A 5 ¾” piece of Terracotta Tile Scalloped Linen Ribbon.

2. Use the second largest Layering Circle Die to cut out a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock for the scenery and use the largest scalloped Layering Circle Die to cut out a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock, this will be layered under the VV circle. Tip-you can use the Crumb Cake base layer to cut out the scalloped circle since the DSP will be layered over this.

3. Three of the Designer Elements in silver, not pictured.

To create the scenery:

1. Stamp the gazebo in Sahara Sand ink and create the stone path by stamping the small dotted stamp in Crumb Cake ink. I “filled in” the path by stamping again (second generation stamping).

2. I used the small grass blade stamp in Granny Apple Green ink to stamp in a few spots.

3. I stamped the small flower stamp in Grapefruit Grove ink, the leaf stamp around the flowers in Granny Apple Green ink, and the bird stamp in Crumb Cake ink.

Adhere the base layer and the DSP layer together and then adhere the ribbon across the middle, adhering the ends around the back:

Adhere the layered scenery to the DSP with dimensionals:

Adhere this piece to a Terracotta Tile cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”, and the place the three silver Designer Elements on the ribbon:

For the inside, cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment from Kindness & Compassion in Terracotta Tile ink, and along the bottom, stamp the grass and leaves in Granny Apple Green ink and the flowers in Grapefruit Grove ink:

Isn’t this a great thank you card? Really, you could use it for any occasion! Even though the Kindness & Compassion stamp set is retiring, I chose to use this sentiment because I just love the style of the font and thought it paired nicely with this card. The Kindness & Compassion stamp set, DSP, and the Designer Elements are all on the retirement list, so don’t forget, all products on the retirement list are only “while supplies last”!

Missing you, friend

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a fun and cheerful card featuring the My Meadow stamp set! I just love the My Meadow stamp set, you can create so many different sceneries and use any sentiments you like! Now that spring is in the air, but we are all spending more time at home, why not create a sweet card to send out to friends and let them know that you are thinking of them and brighten their day? Who doesn’t love some happy mail?? I will first start off by showing you how to create the scenery, which is pretty easy to create!

I first started by cutting out a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the third largest Stitched Rectangle Die. I then used my Stamparatus to stamp the group of tree trunks stamp in Soft Suede ink using the “step technique”, first positioning the stamp on the left side to stamp, moving the plate over two notches, and stamping again (the plate and hinge is at the top). Use the small cluster of leaves stamp to stamp the leaves in Old Olive ink:

I used two of the “fill in” stamps for the ground under the trees and the small cluster of leaves stamp in Granny Apple Green ink. There are two stamps to create the wheel barrel, I used Gray Granite and Poppy Parade inks. Tip-Don’t forget to use your Stampin’ Pierce Mat under the cardstock with photopolymer stamps, this helps you stamp a good image onto the cardstock:

There are two grass blade stamps, I used both of those in Old Olive ink to fill in the ground area and for the larger grass blade stamp, I used the three flower stamp (almost like a tulip) in Poppy Parade ink. The bird stamp was used in Gray Granite ink:

The base layer for this card, is this design from the Peaceful Poppies DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

For the card front, you will need:

1. Your stamped scenery.

2. A 5 ½” piece of Whisper White Flax Ribbon, I used my fingertips/nails to “rough up” the ends of the ribbon.

3. Stamp the sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings on Whisper White cardstock in Poppy Parade ink and punch out with the 1” Circle Punch.

4. Use the 1 1/8” Scallop Circle Punch to punch out a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock, this will be layered under the sentiment.

The card base is Mossy Meadow cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”. I adhered the base layer DSP to the card base and then adhered the flax ribbon across the middle, using Tear & Tape:

The scenery is adhered to the DSP using dimensionals, keeping it more to the left side to give room for your sentiment. The layered sentiment piece is also adhered with a dimensional:


For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”. I used the small “fill in” stamp along the bottom in Granny Apple Green ink, the bigger grass blade stamp in Old Olive, and the flowers and sentiment in Poppy Parade ink:

Don’t you love this springtime card? I just love how the Poppy Parade really “pops” with the green! This would also be a great “any occasion” card, you can simply leave off the front and inside sentiments, and stamp a sentiment on the inside for any occasion! If you have the Waterfront and/or the Snow Front stamp set, then you will definitely want this stamp set!

My Meadow Thank You Card

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which features the My Meadow stamp set from the 2020 Mini Catalog! If you are a fan of the Waterfront and Snowfront stamp sets, then you are going to love the new My Meadow stamp set! What I like in particular with all these stamp sets, is that you can “build a scenery” that can be as simple or as detailed as you like, simply with ink, stamps, and paper! If you’ve been contemplating this stamp set and may feel a little “overwhelmed” as how you would stamp with this set, I thought today’s card would be a great example to share. I kept it very simple, with just a few colors, and can really be used for any occasion.

To start, I first cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 3 ¼” x 4 ½”:

Using Seaside Spray ink, I first stamped the stream with the smallest end at the top, turned it 180 degrees, and then stamped again with the smallest end at the bottom. To fill in the grass or meadow, I used Call Me Clover ink with the biggest fill-in stamp on the right side and the medium fill-in stamp on the left side:

The bridge and birds are stamped in Crumb Cake ink and the clouds are stamped in Seaside Spray ink:

I filled in the open area on the left side by stamping the single tree with Crumb Cake ink and the leaves and grass with Call Me Clover ink:

The base layer is this design in Seaside Spray from the 2019-2021 6” x 6” DSP, first cut a ¾” strip off one side, turn 90 degrees, and cut at 4”. This will give you three pieces at 4” x 5 ¼”, ¾” x 6”, and 2” x 5 ¼”:

I decided to make this a “thank you” card using sentiments from Peaceful Moments stamp set. The sentiment is stamped in Blueberry Bushel ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut out with the smallest layering Stitched Rectangle Die:

The card base is Blueberry Bushel cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”. The DSP base layer is first adhered to the card base, the stamped scenery is adhered on top of the DSP at an angle, and the sentiment is adhered with dimensionals:

For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Blueberry Bushel ink, and adhere the ¾” strip of DSP along the bottom, trimming off the excess:

This really was an easy card to make! I really wasn’t sure how I was going to stamp this, I just knew that I wanted to make it look like a stream with the bridge going over it. So basically, I started in the middle (or the stream) and worked my way out. Since these are photopolymer stamps, that enabled me to figure out which “fill-in” stamps I could use along the stream. So to sum it up, start simple and with three colors to stamp with at first and then as you become more comfortable with your “building”, add another color or two!
