Creative Tip | Katharina Frei

Hi everybody, Katharina here. Today I would like to share a little inspiration with the wonderful and versatile Creative Retreat stamp sets.




I created this colorful little Thank You cards 3.5 x 4.3 inch (9 x 11.5 cm) using the following supplies:



I started by stamping the “This & That” saying multiple times on watercolor paper with sticky, transparent Versamark ink. I didn’t use a ruler or stamp positioner for doing this – I am a free-hand kind of girl 😉



After pouring white embossing powder over it, I removed any excess with a brush and heat embossed it.





After giving it a few sprizz of color, I used a cloth to remove all excess and to spred the color evenly.





Creative Retreat offers some fabulous alphabet stamps sets, which I used to spell the word “Thank You” directly on my acrylic block.



I stamped the saying with black StazOn ink on heavy, white vellum.



I know that vellum is kind of tricky to adhere to papere. Therefore I cut the stripe a little larger than the card to create a flap on both sides. This way I adhered the vellum on the back with adhesive tape – completely invisible from the front.




Super quick and easy! Get your stamps out and try it for yourself 🙂
Thanks for stopping by!!
