Moroccan Nights Thank You Card

I know it has been  awhile since I posted. Sometimes I just feel like it is so hard to put myself "out there". I really do try to do better. I feel I shouldn't post things that have retired from the "Stampin' Up!" world. I would probably post more often if I did, but, oh well. What do you think about posting stuff that has been retired?

Okay! Well, here is a new card, using all current product, of course. I hope you like it.

All supplies are from Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted:
Stamp set: Moroccan Nights
Ink: Versamark Watermark Ink Pad
Cardstock: Bermuda Bay, Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum
Accessories: Big Shot, Hello You Thinlits Dies, Lucky Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder, Gold 1/8" Ribbon, Metallics Sequin Assortment, Tombow Mono Liquid Glue

Here is another view of my card. I die-cut 4 of the greeting and then layered them one on top of the other to give it more of a dimensional look. The medallion image in the Moroccan Nights stamp set, I  heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I think it makes a beautiful background.

I kind of struggled with this set a bit, so I went on to Pinterest and created a visual inspiration board, and then I did a search for all things Moroccan, such as lanterns, tiles and color combinations. From there I felt the inspiration I needed to create something I think is beautiful. I hope you do too!

Thanks for visiting!


  1. okay - that gold and purple together with this stamp set - swoon!!!

    1. When I was on Pinterest checking out inspiration, I saw lots of blues and purples and hot pinks, but also lots of gold and brass. So many beautiful color combinations. Can't wait to see what you come up with, Krista!
