Share this:

We all have people in our life who deserve our thanks and it’s easy to create a handmade Thank You Card using the Trusty Tools Bundle by Stampin’ Up! When it comes to expressing your gratitude, there’s nothing quite like a handmade card and this Bundle makes it easy!

Thank You Card using the Trusty Tools Bundle

The Trusty Tools Stamp Set and Dies are perfect for adding a unique, colorful touch to your projects thanks to it’s Two-Step Stamping design. The two-step stamping process lets you layer images using different stamps from the set and gives your stamped images more color and detail than you’d get using just one stamp. Try two-step stamping to add more life and color to your papercrafting projects!

Thank You Card using the Trusty Tools Bundle  Color Combination

For this card, I used the two-step paintbrush combined with the image that lets you add paint to the bottom of your brush. I went with the fun color combo of Bubble Bath, Balmy Blue, and Highland Heather – with a pop of Lemon Lime Twist to add a dash of bright color! If this color combination doesn’t appeal to you, make sure you check out my Color Combination Library for more inspiration!

Whether it’s for a helpful neighbor, a supportive friend, or anyone who’s been a solid rock in your life, these tool-themed cards are sure to leave a lasting impression.

  3. Using the Lemon Lime Twist ink pad, stamp the ‘paint’ onto the end of several of the paint brushes, reinking your stamp each time.  Clean stamp thoroughly and repeat the process using Balmy Blue ink.  Repeat one more time using Highland Heather ink.
