Scrapbook Sunday #27: Thanks page

Happy Sunday! I hope you're having a great weekend! I had one more SU Convention page to share using the Thanks stamp set with my lovely friend Asha and her daughter again. She had another baby recently and shared more photos, so that's good news for me and my scrapbooking for events! I made up the journaling myself, but I'm pretty sure Asha would agree with it.

This page is about as *simple* as they could possibly come. I used the new In Color Blushing Bride, LOVE it! I stamped the Thanks stamp in Basic Gray ink, but I stamped off on scratch paper first, then stamped on the cardstock, so it's lighter. Then I stamped the Thanks stamp again on another piece of cardstock in full strength Basic Gray and punched out parts of the words with the Three Hearts punch and laid them over the text on the page using Mini Glue Dots. I also attached some small hearts punched out of the plain, unstamped cardstock. That was probably way too wordy when you already had it figured out anyway! If so, sorry!

Well, off to do some errands then get ready for my friend Lori's wedding tonight! SO happy for her!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

Cardstock: Blushing Bride, Basic Gray.

I love the effect of the full strength stamped words over the stamped off version and the punched out hearts. So clever!

WOW!! You never cease to impress. What a great idea with this stamp! Love the soft grey text with heart highlights. I will so be stealing, erm, borrowing that idea for a class! :D
