  Sending Love and Zany Zoo for my January, 2024 Creative Therapy Classes

I offered this card at both of my January 2024 classes and all who attended said they enjoyed the technique of blending and coloring with Stampin' Blends.


  • The Granny Apple Green base is 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.
  • The Boho Blue layer is 5 1/4 x 4. 
  • The Basic White layer is 5 x 3 3/4.
    • I began by punching a 1" hole in a scrap of cardstock and using this piece to sponge a sun with Lemon Lolly ink.
    • Next, I covered the 1" sponged Lemon Lolly sun with a 1" circle cardstock piece and used one of the dies from the Basic Borders dies, & Balmy Blue ink and sponged clouds midway down the card.
    • Next, I used a Blending Brush and Pool Party ink and lightly sponged the middle to the bottom of the card front.
    • I stamped the mailbox with Tuxedo Memento Black ink and colored it with Granny Apple Green, Pool Party, Cherry Cobbler and Natural Tones Stampin' Blends.
    • I made the little envelope by stamping Crumb Cake with black ink and cutting it out with one of the Sending Love Dies.  I added it to the mailbox with a glue dot.  I added a Cherry Cobbler heart with a glue dot.
    • I cut out the grass with a Sending Love Die and Parakeet Party and Granny Apple Green cardstock and added these pieces with liquid glue.
    • I stamped the words on Basic White with black ink and cut it out with a Stylish Shapes Die.  
    • I stamped "Happy Birthday to You", from Zany Zoo, with black ink on Boho Blue cardstock and punched this out with a 1" circle punch and added this over the "I Miss You" words with a dimensional.
  • All done and remember to decorate your envelope.
