Thanks So Much Card: Kindest Expressions Stamp Set

Hello and welcome to my blog! Today I am going to share the card bonus card that I made during last week's Live Craftin' & Chattin' episode. I used the same card design as last week's card but I changed the color scheme and some of the elements to make it more of masculine card. If you missed last week's Craftin' & Chattin' episode card I will have it linked here for you. That way you can check out the card later.

Thanks So Much Card:

This is a super easy and quick card to make using the Kindest Expressions Stamp Set. The large sentiments make it super easy to create visual interest and demands attention on the card. Which is also my featured Stamp Set this month for the R. C. Kinsmon Studio Monthly Tutorial and Card Kits To Go just for those reasons.

From Famine to Masculine with One Little Change:

For this version of the card I changed up the piece of Bright & Beautiful Designer Series Paper to one that had more of a masculine feel. With the bold bright strips in different shades of blues, teals, greens, and yellow. It's a big contrast to the more famine version I shared during last week's Craftin' & Chattin' Episode. That version focused more on the pink tones.

I matted this piece of Bright & Beautiful Designer Series Paper onto a mat made from Lemon Lolly Cardstock. Which is becoming one of my favorite yellow tones to use. It's bright and cheerful and so yummy on a card. And then I changed out the heart from the original card to stitched stars that I cut from Lemon Lolly Cardstock using dies from the Give it a Whirl Dies. Which for the more masculine version was all I thought it needed.
