Endless variety with Endless Thanks - Stampin' Up artisan blog hop

Hello and welcome to Inspiration Land! Every Thursday, the Artisan design team organises a wonderful blog hop to give you ideas for using all these wonderful Stampin' Up products, and today we've all got 'thank you' on our minds!

I am SO excited by the Endless Thanks stamp set! The stamps are made of clear photopolymer so you can see exactly where you're stamping and there are lots of words to mix and match; but it's the gorgeous stylised flowers and leaves that have captured my imagination. There's no end to the ways you can stamp these but here are a few:

Here, I stamped a border with a 60s feel and added a sentiment above it.

I do love this colour combination of Cucumber Crush and Pacific Point, with Mint Macaron background flowers and Watermelon Wonder accents. Epoxy stickers add a bit of fun!

With this version, I stamped that wonderful sentiment banner and added the flowers and leaves at the top and bottom. The middle of the sentiment was snipped out of a second banner, stamped onto spare card stock, and popped up over the first.

It reminds me a bit of a tattoo design but with much less pain!

For my last card I wanted to show you how easy it is to make a wreath using stamps of this scale.

TIP: Draw a faint circle shape with a pencil to use as a guide before stamping.

I've got heaps of ideas for using this wonderful set but, for now, it's time to follow the blog hop and see what the rest of the team have come up with today. Click the button below to hop over to be wowed by Allison Okamitsu!

The heatwave continues here and seems to have brought Tuppence the cat and Eva the pup together. They've both been found slumped on the cool kitchen tiles together, too hot to care about having a stand-off!

Thanks for joining me today. Have a wonderful weekend and I'll be back on Tuesday with more crafting fun.


  1. Great card Vicky, I had been playing around with the vine image to create a wreath but it was not working for me, I never thought of creating a wreath with the flowers. I adore what you have done with just this one stamp set.

  2. Vicky, this cards are lovely! You made so much out of this stamps. Thanks for sharing. xx Bea

  3. Marisela Delgado said: Hola, Vicky! How are you? Okay, I've got to ask. How hot does it get in England during summer? I'm in San Antonio, Texas and we can get pretty toasty. Not as bad as Arizona which can easily hit 125*F, but we can get up there in the 100*-105*F fairly easy on some summers. So far, this year, it's been pretty great. We have had crazy amounts of rain (bad flooding, too) and overcast skies so we have been pretty cool, by our standards, at 89* or 92*F. Humidity is a bit much some days and the mosquitoes are now the size of birds (kidding), but the weather has been pretty nice so far for July. Anyway, I hope you have a great summer and that things cool down a bit. I LOVE England and want to visit London so bad. Plus, Prince Harry is so good-looking. (We have the same birthday.) I used to have a massive crush on PM Tony Blair. (laugh) Have a great weekend. Happy 4th from across the pond. =) your friend, Marisela

  4. These are so so sweet. That little wreath is a showstopper!

  5. Love these little blue flowers Vicky-and you are right,that border does have a 60's feel to it!
