Typographic Stamped Greeting – Make a Card Monday #252

Hi all!

Today I have a card made using the Many Thanks stamp set from Mama Elephant. I love all the little phrases in this stamp set–especially because it means you can customize and create your own greeting. You can combine and mix the words and phrases to create a unique greeting card.

I chose four different ink colors for my card: Hero Arts Fresh Peach, Fog and Audrey Blue from Simon, and Versafine Black Onyx. And to add a bit more interest to the area of the card by the fold, I blending on some ink using the Mini Round Blending Tool (NEW FAV!) and the Extra Large Dots Stencil from Simon.

Super easy, simple, and one-layer card for today. Hope you enjoy!

  1. Cool card! I love the mixed fonts and what you did with the stencil.

  2. Love the different fonts, Kristina. Neat card. Thank you.

  3. Love it!

  4. Great card. We never think that we can ‘build’ the stamps and edit our greeting, right? I did this yesterday, what a coincidence! But only with two greetings. :)
    I have the square blending tool but I never used it so much, but with this technique it’s a great tool. TFS dear Kristina!

  5. Beautiful combination of colors and I love the build your sentiment technique! Thanks, Kristina.

  6. I love this one layer quick and simple yet lovely card!! Love your color combination. I will be making a few cards like them.

  7. Such a cute card! Love that thank you set!

    I do have a design question for you, though! When you use Bazzill marshmallow card stock, do you use marshmallow envelopes too? Or plain white? Just curious! Thanks! Love your videos, they are so informative!!!

  8. Cute Card… love the one layer
    and the Many Thanks stamp set !!

  9. Great card! I love the look of the fading across the card. I’ve been looking for some of those blending tools, but haven’t found them in my area yet. I’m sure I will one day, I’m told they are wonderful.

  10. Cute card! Good tip about filling in the negative area with a white pen!

  11. Love your card, Kristina. Gorgeous blended effect.

  12. Nice card, Kristina! I like the look of the fading/partial stencil and I do that with a couple of the MFT stencils I own. :)
