Thrifty Thursday is all about cost efficiency.  What I love about this card is it uses the products that come in the standard starter kit.  Remember you can get started as a Stampin’ Up!® demonstrator for three easy payments of $67.00.  Click here for more details.  The starter kit has over $335.00 worth of product in it for just $199.00.

I  really like this card beacuse it’s simple and easy to change the thanks-flower-normalcolors.  The flower can be stamped or you can create any color by stampin’ it in VersaMark® and then using the Stampin’ Pastels® to add color.  I recommend using the sponge daubers for this technique because it is easy and fast but you can also use q-tips.  I really love the Stampin’ Pastels because they give you all the 48 colors plus 3 neutral colors for less than $25.00.  It’s really the best way to get all of our colors to start off with and they are so easy to use.

thanks-flower-dressed-upOne of the other things I love about this card is it’s so easy to dress it up.  Here I have stamped the back ground (sorry it’s hard to see) with the little flower in the set and then I also added some ribbon along the top.  Any white ribbon is great to start with because it goes with pretty much everything plus you can dye it to match your colors.  If you would like to learn how to use our great chalks or to dye ribbon I would love to come to your home and show you and your friends how.  Just give me a call and we can set up a date 435-245-5321.

One last thing that I love about this card is the saying.  It comes from fundamental phrases.  This stamp set is so versital.  I has many different sayings.  You could make up a bunch of these cards in different colors without the saying and then just choose the appropriate saying when you need it.  It’s so simple and easy.  You don’t need to run to a store every time you need a quick card.
