A Spring Garden for Easter

Stampin Up Penned & Painted Another Thank You card ideas Michelle Gleeson Stampinup

Happy Easter!

I am disappointed that the Penned & Painted Photopolymer Stamp Set is retiring. You can bet it will remain in my stamp collection for years to come.

The color palette I used is:

Rich Razzleberry
Sweet Sugarplum
Always Artichoke
Old Olive

It is rich and earthy. Sweet Sugarplum is my least favorite color in the pink/purple family but I do like it paired with Rich Razzleberry.

Stampin Up Another Thank You Penned & Painted Thank you card idea Michelle Gleeson Stampinup

I used a retired stamp set – Another Thank You – for the sentiment. I love the font for this stamp and it remains on my crafting table for easy access when I need a quick thank you. I took a piece of scrap paper and stamped the sentiment and then folded the strip around the corner of the card. I like how it turned out.

I stamped a flower in the bottom right corner of on the inside of my card as well. Can you see it peeking out of the bottom corner?

I hope you have a lovely Easter and may your blessings be many.

  2. BEAUTIFUL as usual! I am counting down the days until our time together. I am totally with you – I am sad that this beauty is leaving us and I am with you….it will always have a spot in my home! HUGS!

  3. Absolutely beautiful!!! Thanks for sharing!

  4. This is just breathtakingly gorgeous! I love this color combo and you really made this stamp set sing.

  5. Beautiful card. The corner strip of CS with the sentiment is lovely.

    • Ina, Thank you for your kind comment. My mom used to wrap presents with ribbon striped over the opposite corners. I wanted to add the sentiment and didn’t want to cover the flowers. The corner seemed to be the perfect solution. It is funny where our creativity comes from.

  6. I love your card ..and the clever way you wrapped the sentiment!! I love this stamp set, too and the colors you chose!
