Social Stamping - Thank You

Hello EVERYONE, Thanks for joining me for Kelly Kent's Blog Host.
This is my first Social Stamping blog host post.  Wow that is a mouthful.

I LOVE that Kelly asked her fellow Stampin' Up! friends to connect
via the WWW so that we could share stamping socially,
such a fantastic way to get together and not feel isolated during Covid-19.
There are quite a few of us here today showing you so many 

different projects that all say Thank You.

My project today was going to be a Scrapbooking Layout...
BUT it just didn't happen, so at 1.30pm I decided I better do something really quick.
I already had some leftover pieces from what I created yesterday so I used those
to create a Twisted Easel Card with the Forever Blossoms Stamp Set/Parisian Floral EF.

I saw Elizabeth Gross create a card using this template a couple of weeks ago,
so I thought I would give it a go... AND her template is here

Elizabeth's tips - The template will work with whatever size card you design...
You just need to make the card front the same size as the back - or slightly smaller.
The position of the anchor will determine how high your card sits.
You may have just joined me from Mandy Depiazzi blog or you are starting with me...
So here is how I created my Parisian Floral EF background.
You apply ink to the flat side of the inside of your embossing folder
then place your cardstock inside and then you run it through your Big Shot...
The ink then transfers to the cardstock. See photo
I used Rococo Rose Stampin Pad and Very Vanilla Cardstock

Next I added some ribbon and then stuck that to Rococo Rose Cardstock.
Stuck this piece to the corner that is going to stand up.

Then I stamped Floral stamp from Forever Blossoms and then sprayed it with some
shimmer paint and fussy cut it out....
Next I Die cut a shape from Stitched So Sweetly out of Sahara Sand
Then started to create my elements on that shape...
Added some Rose coloured thread.
Stamped out my Thanks word from Ornate Thanks, stuck that on my shape.
Then I tied a bow from the Rococo Rbbon.

For the inside of the card I added a Very Vanilla layer and then created my little anchor point for the card to stand up against.
The smaller die cut is also from Stitched So Sweetly Dies then I stamped some more flowers

fussy cut them and so leaves and stamped 'so much' from Forever Blossoms Stamp Set.
Next I added 2019-2021 In Color Faceted Dots in Rococo Rose.
