Multi Thanks

I was trying something new with today's card.  Using cream cardstock as my card base, I took a tiny "Thank you" stamp, and  stamped it over and over in the background with varying ink colors.  


I heat embossed another "Thank you" on a scrap of cream cardstock, and punched that out to adhere to the front of my card.  


Before attaching the circle, I inked the edges with my midtone in color.

Birthday Giftcard Envelope

It's time for another challenge over at 613 Avenue Create.  Every week we have a new Anything Goes Challenge with an optional twist for those who want to challenge themselves a little more.  This week, our optional twist is to create something with the theme "Girl's Night Out".

This week, I'm playing along with the Anything Goes part of the challenge.  I have a ton of birthday's quickly approaching, and I have ZERO cards made for them - Uh-oh!!!

I made this adorable little giftcard envelope with my Envelope punch board.


I did use some little adhesive gemstones that I had been gifted (no idea of the brand) in my project.  Otherwise, all of the supplies are listed below.

Have a great rest of your weekend!

Watercolor Thanks

Today's card is very simple.  I purchased a set of the newest Distress Ink minis recently, and hadn't yet had a chance to play with them, so I used a couple of the colors to watercolor on this card.


I used Cracked Pistachio and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Inks to create a vague rectangle onto a panel of watercolor paper.    Once that was dry, I used Versamark to stamp a Kaisercraft sentiment stamp onto the panel, and then heat embossed that in gold.  I wrapped a bit of Carribean twine from the Twinery around the panel and added a small bow, before backing the panel with fun foam and mounting it onto an A2 card created from the same watercolor paper.  Super quick and easy, and I think it looks gorgeous.  

Thanks for stopping by!
