It's time for our monthly Demonstrator Training Program Blog Hop and you are in for a treat as you see the creative Thank You cards created by this team of demonstrators from around the world. We hope we can inspire you to make beautiful cards of your own..
You may be starting here or have come from someone else's blog - either way there is a list at the end of this post to help you visit all the different blogs and get many amazing ideas. We all have our country listed - so if you are looking for a demonstrator in your country, these demonstrators would love to look after you with your Stampin' Up!® shopping or if you would like to join our Stampin' Up!® teams.

This bright, happy Thank You card express the happiness I feel when a customer chooses to place an order with me. My hope is that it also creates happiness and fun for them when they receive it. This card was made with the In Blooms stamp set and the Pierced Blooms dies. The slimline layout seemed perfect for a bit of spring variety and to show off more of the brightly stamped flowers.
Thick Basic White card stock: 7 1/2" x 8 3/4", scored at 3 3/4"
Granny Apple Green mat: 3 1/2" x 8 1/2", (Cut Basic white piece this size for the inside of the card if you have a dark card base.)
Balmy Blue mat: 3 1/4" x 8 1/4"
Basic White card front: 3" x 8"
Highland Heather card stock 8 1/2" x 11"
Begin by stamping a variety of flowers in light and dark shades on the 3" x 8" piece of Basic White card stock. For the card above, I used the lighter shade for the large flowers and a darker shade for the "centers." My colors were So Saffron and Bumblebee, Balmy Blue and Pacific Point, Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape. The leaves were stamped with Granny Apple Green in full strength and stamped a second time without reinking. Be sure to stamp several leaves and flowers right off the edge of the card stock.
Layer and adhere the three mats on the front of the card....Granny Apple Green, Balmy Blue and then the stamped Basic white piece.
Cut several different flowers and small "center" of flowers from card stock scraps in Granny Apple Green, Balmy Blue, Gorgeous Grape, Pacific Point and Balmy Blue.
Stamp "Thank You" from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set on a piece of Highland Heather card stock and cut out with a stitched rectangle. Adhere 3 flowers to the left side of the rectangle and one to the right.
To make the Envelope
Place your 8 1/2" x 11" piece of card stock with the 8 1/2" side along the top of the trimmer/scorer and score at 2 1/2" and 6 1/2".
Next turn and place the 11" side along the top and score at 1 1/2" and 10 1/2". Fold and burnish each score line.
Trim away the outer rectangles at the top and bottom of the short side. On the side with the 1/2" flap, miter the edges of the center rectangle. (See photo below.)
Use a corner rounder to round all 4 corners on the top. (See photo below.)
Fold on all score lines. The wider right side will fold over the left side. Place Tear & Tape adhesive on the inner edge of the right side and outer edge of the left side and adhere them together. Adhere the small bottom flap with Tear and Tape as well. Use two or three glue dots to seal the top flap of the envelope for mailing.
++If you do not want to make your own envelope, this will fit in a #10 business envelope. +++
