One of my favorite types of cards are thank you cards. I find them useful when I am traveling and so many other occasions too… and there is a cool gratitude campaign collection that is put together by Susan Raihala that these can become part of.
Here is a set of 4 thank you cards that I made the other day using my new “My Favorite Things” alphabet die and my “Simon Says Stamp” you stampset, along with my wonderful distress paints.
and some more color options:
The one layer Wednesday challenge is to have one image stamp, one ink color and one sentiment stamp …
I really love this sketched image from the wetlands stampin up set … and it looks great water-colored etc … but it also looks pretty great just by itself, so here tis.
Thanks for stopping by!! :)
I know that someone used this stamp on a blog that I follow … and I went “wow, I have to get that stamp!!” … and I did but it was quite a long time between the noticing it and purchasing it phases … so apologies but I can no longer remember who inspired this card. Isn’t this image great! :)
I saw this great card by Ardyth which had white embossing on white cardstock, and I thought … “I need to try this” …. so this is my first attempt :)
I decided to splurge and get a new alphabet die, and I went with My Favorite Things. Fabulous die, cuts like butter :) … also enjoying continuing to play with my distress paints!! :)
I love Penny Black’s hedgie stamps, and I brought one yesterday … and of course had to make a card with it straight away. I used distress inks: pumice stone and tumbled glass as well as inktense pencils.
The earthquakes we are experiencing here in Wellington have given me an unexpected day at home today. Crafting seemed like a good option (when I wasn’t working from home). I played with my new rubbadubbadoo boat stamp. I am enjoying creating one layer cards. I have been really taken with the cards created by Sanketij and thought I would have a go …
… and look at that, this card fits the nautical challenge from the curtain call, the by the sea challenge from Simon Says Stamp and the one-layer Wednesday challenge perfectly.
