I am thankful we have loads of fun together

Hello Again, I'm almost done sharing all the Thank you cards I made back in January for a custom order. So this is card number 10 of 12 card that I made.   I had a lot of fun coming up with so many thank you cards and figuring out how to make them all work.

For this card I used this fun embossing folder that looks like waves that I had in my stash. I have no idea really where my embossing folders are from or what they are called. :(  I sponged on some My Favorite Things Blu Raspberry Hybrid ink and then sponged the edges with Memento Tuxedo black ink to get the edges to pop and finish it off.

Then for the images and sentiment I used Lawn Fawn's Loads of fun stamp set and Lawn Fawn's Jump for Joy stamp set.  To change it up I also used my Koi Water colors to color in the stamped images.

Thanks a Million

I've got two more cards to share with you today of the custom card order I got back in January.  I really love how these cards turned out and both are very different than I usually do but I really like the look  of them.

The first card I stamped the sentiment Thanks a Million which is a $1.50 Micheal's stamp. Then I embossed it with clear embossing powder so I could use My Koi Water colors on it and still have the sentiment really stand out.

The second card I used the same sentiment to create a very different card.  I used a star embossing folder that I have in my stash and I used My Favorite Things Banana Split Hybrid ink to get the yellow effect on it.  Then I used some ribbon and some card stock layers to finish it off and tie it all together.

Saying Thanks with Birds & Butterflies

Hello there and welcome back to my blog. I hope you're enjoying seeing all these thank you cards I created recently.

Here are two more cards of my recent thank you card order.  I really love how this first card turned out, it's so simple and fun.

I used this fun embossing folder as the background and I feel it creates a great base for the other elements on the card. I sponged the edges of the embossed background to finish it off.   The Thanks sentiment is from a die I have in my stash I don't know what company it is from.  The birds are from Lawn Fawn's stamp set Cheery Christmas and they are colored in with my spectrum noir markers.  I used some patterned paper for the bottom of the card to finish it off.



I really love how this second card turned out too.  I love the cream colored embossed background.  The butterflies are actually from another $1.50 stamp from Micheal's.  I fussy cut them out and embossed them in clear embossing powder.  That way I could water color them and get a cool effect.   The thanks sentiment is also a $1.50 stamp from Micheal's and that too is water colored using my 24 colors Koi watercolors.


 

Embossed Thank you cards!

Here are two more Thank you cards I made for a custom order back in January.

For this first card I used a chevron embossing folder using several different colors. Then I cut them into different sizes to create this fun pattern.  The Thank you sentiment is a Micheal's $1.50 stamp I've had for a long time. Finally to finish off the card I used some black ink and sponged it around the edges of the card to make it all pop.




For the next card I used an embossing folder to create this fun background.  Then I used a scalop border die from My Favorite Things which I believe is now retired.  The sentiment is another Micheal's $1.50 stamp I've had for a long time.  I also used some blue ink and sponged the edges of this card to finish it all off. 

Thankful for you deer friend

Here is another card for the thank you card order I had back in January.  I love how this card turned out.  I used a bunch of Lawn Fawn stamp sets to create this simple card. The Lawn Fawn Stamp sets I used are Toboggan Together, Cheery Christmas and Jump for Joy.  I also used My Favorite Things Blu Raspberry hybrid ink to sponged the edges of the white embossed panel and the banner under the sentiment.  The banner is die cut from My Favorite Things Fish tale Flags STAX die-namics.    The blue card stock behind the deer's was punched with a scallop punch I have in my stash.


Challenges: 
Use more than one die or punch

So Thankful I jump for joy!

Here is card from the order of the thank you cards I made back in January. They are finally hopping on to the blog.  This is just a fun thank you card and would be great for any lady in your life especially a mom.  I used a chevron embossing folder for the background and then sponged it with My Favorite Things Pure Plum hybrid ink pad.  The kangaroo comes from Lawn Fawn's Critters Down Under stamp set and the sentiment was created with Lawn Fawn's Jump for Joy stamp set.

Elegant Thank you card

In early January I had a family member ask me to make them 12 Thank you cards to use.  So over the next few days I will be finally sharing these cards with you.

This first card is using a Thank you embossing folder.  To make it pink I used "My Favorite Things" Razzle Berry hybrid ink pad. I got this look by sponging the ink pad directly to the paper.  To finish off the card I added some diamond embellishments and mounted it on some pink card stock.  This made for a quick, simple and elegant card.
