Tightwad Tuesday: Featured stamp set – Thank You Kindly

Hi All,

Welcome to Tightwad Tuesday where you will find links and ideas for stamping on a budget!   Check the sidebar for a downloadable  list of the more than 151 stamp sets and wheels that fall into this Under $20 category and for the Under $20 holiday mini sets as well.

This weeks featured stamp set is Thank You Kindly, a set that really should be considered a basic tool in your stamp cupboard.  This is a newer set that replaced and updated the now retired Much Appreciated that no demo was ever without and that came in the older demo starter kits (if you are interested in getting your own discounts as a demo or would like more info about what items come in the current starter kit ask me about joining my team).

Thank You Kindly Stamp Set

Thank You Kindly (#111700   $13.95, set of 4 stamps, pg.145)

For the demo’s among my readers or those who like to stamp lots of sets of cards this set is perfect for SAS, Workshops and Make and Takes of all sizes after all who doesn’t need to say Thanks once in a while!    Also available in French which can be lots of fun since most people know what Merci means.  And at  $13.95 I think you will agree it provides considerable value (averages out to $3.49 per single stamp image) .  

As you can tell from some of these past and present catalog samples this set is perfect for tags, sets of small cards, regular sized cards and can be glammed up with Hardware and accessories of all sorts as well as used in conjunction with many other sets you may already have in your collection.

Most of the samples listed below use a wee bit of dsp, ribbon and the stamp set and maybe a punch or two.  Others combine other stamp sets to show this sets versatility.  After all Thanks of some sort or another can accompany pretty much anything!

Tip: To get the best images from your stamps (Under $20 or over :D) they should really be conditioned before you start stamping.  The first and simplest way I was taught depends a great deal on what you usually wear!  Since I live in either blue jeans or night gowns (uh huh I’ve been know to go a day or so before getting dressed :D) and it’s pretty much 50/50 chances are pretty good I’ll be wearing the jeans when needed.  I find that vigorously scrubbing a new stamp on my jeans then using the Stampin Mist and scrub pad on it generally takes care of the job.  For more refined methods check out this post on Stamping 411 – a wonderful info blog with a cool weekly challenge.

Technique - Build a Brad

** Build a Brads are on page 179 of the current catalog

Tightwad Tip:  If Build a Brads aren’t in your budget you can get a similar (though not exactly the same) look by placing your image or bit of DSP behind one of our clear buttons found on pg. 181 of the IBC.  Same number of items (24) at half the price and a greater variety of size! – Note: attaching them will be done however with adhesives and not a brad.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out another “Thrifty” post!

Hugs and blessings my friends – Jean
