MASSIVE Thanks - Vote for My Card this Month!

Today I am playing in Kylie Bertucci's blog hop - Kylie is a Stampin' Up! demonstrator in Australia. The blog hop is basically an international contest for projects made with Stampin' Up! product. There's a voting button below my first picture that will take you to a gallery of ALL the entries for June 2020, where you can submit your vote(s). My entry is currently #50.

I am participating from the United States, and this month's theme is 'Thank you!'. I am excited to use the brand NEW Massive Thanks Cling Stamp Set on my entry, which is an Explosion Card! 
{US Product Purchase Links can be found near the bottom of this post}

The Explosion Card is an oldie, but a goodie, and I thought it was perfect to use with the sentiments 'little card...', and 'MASSIVE thank you' from the Massive Thanks Cling Stamp Set. I chose to use the smallest mailable size of card in the US, which is 3-1/2" x 5" - which is the size of our Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes - to demonstrate the "little card". You get 20 Note Cards plus 20 Envelopes in the pack, and there are 48 sheets of patterned paper in the pack I used, so you can easily and inexpensively get 40 cards if you make sure to buy TWO packs of the Note Cards & Envelopes.

The Whale of a Time 6"x6" Designer Series Paper Pack is perfect to create the Explosion Card fold for the "massive thanks" inside. It's the ideal size, and the ocean theme really lends itself to the depths of your "massive thanks"! You can use any size square of patterned paper to make the fold, you'll just want to be sure the smallest dimension of your outside card when folded is at least HALF the size of the square you use. For instance, the smallest dimension of my Note Card is 3-1/2", and HALF the size of the 6" patterned paper square is 3", so it fits inside the card easily.

I wanted to make this project super simple, so I used only the colors of ink that are available in our NEW Classic Stampin' Spots Assortment. This is a collection of eight 1"x1" mini stamp pads, which can be reinked with the same Ink Refills as our standard-sized ink pads. The colors in the assortment are: Basic Gray, Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, Gorgeous Grape, Real Red, and Shaded Spruce. The sentiments are stamped in Basic Gray, and I actually used the Stampin' Spots themselves (in the other colors shown above) to "stamp" on the front of the card to get the colored squares.

Stampin' Supplies: Massive Thanks Cling Stamp Set, Classic Stampin' Spots Assortment, Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes, Whale of a Time 6"x6" Designer Series Paper Pack, Stampin' Seal Adhesive, Clear Block D, Paper Snips, Stampin' Scrub & Stampin' Mist (to clean red rubber stamps), Grid Paper.
