Have I mentioned I really dislike MASS Producing cards?! I have a very strong dislike for repetition and doing the same thing over, and over, and over, and over… I think you get the point right? haha I used the August 2019 Paper Pumpkin addon to make some special Thank You Cards, so, here we go!
MASS Produce Thank You Cards
I hope you enjoy recreating these more than I did! lol I mean, as much as I dislike mass production, it was for a really good reason. Some very very special people will be receiving these Thank You Cards. I hope they mean a little more knowing how much I struggle with assembling line stamping. There are a handful of people that really deserve these cards! Some very kind-hearted people who are sending sunshine and deserve some back. The world needs more people like all of you, My Inkie friends. (((hugs))) Let’s mass produce Thank You Cards!!

Instructions to Mass Produce Thank You Cards
- I chose to pick up 3 packages of the August 2019 Paper Pumpkin Addon from the Clearance Section. They are now sold out in Canada, but you might find them in your region.
- Using a Card Kit will greatly reduce your production time when mass producing cards.
- I also nabbed 3 packs of the retired Brightly Gleaming Foil Elements on Clearance. But unfortunately, they too are also now sold out in Canada. When you see something in the Clearance Section that you want, you really can’t waste any time thinking about it, as it could be gone at any moment.
- To match my cards I cut Sahara Sand Cardstock inserts 1/8″ of an inch smaller than the cards.
Embossing with Dies:
- I wanted to make the wreath on the card stand out a little more. So I chose to emboss around it with the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.
- The sandwich for this with the new Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine is: Plate #1, 3, Silicone, paper, die, #4. Run it through the machine and you will get an embossed impression of the die. I love how it looks.
- I have another card I did recently using this technique here.
- Using Versamark, I stamped 8 cards at a time (I did one batch in 16). The Versamark takes a long time to dry, so working in large batches is ok.
- Of course, I used my Stamparatus for this to make my life a lot easier. All I had to do was ink up the stamp and close the door on top of the card every time.
- For the sentiment, I used the So Sentimental Stamps. I also used this set to stamp the inside of the card. I also used my Stamparatus for the stamping on the inserts.
- For the splatter, I followed my Spatter Recipe here. It’s very easy. Fill a Stampin’ Spritzer 1/2 full with Heat Protectant Spray (Flat Iron Spray).
- Using the scoop end of the Take Your Pick scoop 3 heaping scoops of the Copper Perfect Pearls Powder and carefully place into the Stampin’ Spritzer.
- Shake well. Then add enough Heat Protectant Spray to fill the rest of the Stampin’ Spritzer. Leave enough room for the mechanism to go back inside or it will all spillover.
- Splatter all cards by tapping on the spray mechanism. I do this in a box to protect my work area.
Painting the Ring:
- To paint the ring around the wreath pour less than a teaspoon of Heat Protectant Spray into a Mini Dappen Glass. Using the scoop end of the Take Your Pick scoop 1 scoop of the Copper Perfect Pearls Powder into the Mini Dappen Glass. Mix well with a wooden stick.
- I use the stick to drop some of the Copper Mixture onto a Stampin’ Block. The mica in the Copper Perfect Pearls Powder likes to settle and I find it’s easier to work with on a block.
- Using a #10 Paint Brush I loaded a generous amount of the Copper Mixture onto my brush and followed the ring the Die made when I embossed earlier. It was time-consuming. In fact, it took almost as much time o do this as it did for all the cards u to this point. But it’s SO worth it in the end.
- I added one spring from the Brightly Gleaming Foil Elements to the lower right corner of each card.
- In order to make this as easy as possible I sprayed all the sprigs with Aleene’s Tacky Spray (sorry I cannot link this item for you)
- It take a bit for the spray to dry, so I sprayed 18 at a time with no issues.
