Thanks for Caring

By | February 17, 2011

Hi Stampers

OpenerToday's card features the Thanks for Caring Stamp Brush Set – Digital Download.  The  six-piece set is there to lend a helping hand. With graceful images and greetings perfect for all kinds of caring messages, it will become a staple for those times when you need to express your feelings of sympathy or thankfulness.

I first tried to use the sentiment from the actual Thanks for Caring Stamp Set, but could not get the sentiment dark enough for my taste and I did not have the Always Artichoke reinker.   I then remembered that I recently purchased the same set as a digital load and used it to print out the sentiment.  My Digital Studio to the rescue again!

The bottom of the card is made up of pieces of left over Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper.  The top Very Vanilla Card Stock has been embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder.  I used the Heat Tool on the Always Artichoke 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon to give it a slightly scrunched look.

Just so that you don't think I am wasting card stock by feeding a whole sheet for one little sentiment, I thought I would show you the steps I follow when I only need one item printed out.

Step 1:

Print it out on printer paper

 Step-1

 Step 2: 

Add a small scrap of card stock carefully anchoring it down with a strip of scotch tape at the top so that it doesn't catch in the printer.  Feed that through the printer.

 Step-2 

 Step 3:

Scrap of paper ready to be punched out or trimmed to desired size.

Step-3 

Thanks for stopping by today

    What a great idea to print out what is not on the craft table! I guess purchasing My Digital Studio wasn’t a bad idea!
