Thank You Cards

Stamp Layering

Hello all !  Today's project is another clean and simple design for Simon Says Clean and Simple Challenge.  Again, I am using the Simon Says Stamp / WPlus9 Many Thanks Stamp Set.   This is a layering stamp set so I got to do some experimenting with the different stamps and color combinations.  The sentiment is also from the Many Thanks Stamp Set and is stamped with yellow pigment ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

Fall Thanks

I really enjoy participating in Kathyrac's coloring challenges.  I created the front card panel in today's project during the Fall 2015 30 Day Coloring Challenge and here is the final card - finally!  The design is inspired by the Starbucks cup that Kathy colored during that challenge.  This was very fun to do since I love to color with Copics so much!  In fact I have at least one more stamped panel waiting to be colored!  

The images are from an older GinaK set called Sunkissed Autumn and the thanks die cut is from the MFT Many Thanks die cut set.

Mama Elephant Woodland Gifts

Today's project is another entry into the Simon Says: Let's Go Wild Challenge.  I love critter stamps and the bear and bunny in the Mama Elephant Woodland Gift set are great!  The look on the bear's face so cute!  The background was masked off on all sides and then I used my new Clarity Stencil Brushes to make a soft background with some distress inks.  Love using the stencil brushes - they made the putting the color down very easy.  

All the images - bunny, bear, log and balloon were colored with Copics.  To give the balloon more dimension, I added some glossy accents.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set.

Mama Elephant Cub Cuddles

My new Mama Elephant Cub Cuddles set arrived in the mail last week so I got it inky right away by entering in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Simon Says: Stencil It!  I love this set, both the images and the sentiments.  First, I created a card base with Neenah Soloar White 110 lb card stock and used a Heidi Swapp Triangle stencil to create a subtle background with Tim Holtz Distress Ink and a mini round ink blending tool.  

Next, I stamped one of the bears from the Cub Cuddles set with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink and colored him in with copics.  I also stamped and colored a bunch of the heart shaped balloons.  Everything was cut out with the matching dies.  The sentiment is heat embossed in white on black cardstock.  Added some sequins and some Wink of Stella on the balloons and called it done!

Inlaid Die Cuts

 

Today's project is one inspired from the July 2015 Simon Says Stamp Card Kit.   The card base is SU Crumb Cake splattered with some white spray ink.  Next, I white heat embossed a few waves and the thanks sentiment from the the stamp set.  Then I used the inlaid die cut technique with the cute sailboat die and some of the papers from the kit.

Bokeh Thank You

Hello all!  Today's project is an entry in Ellen Hutson's July Mix It Up With Paper Smooches Challenge. These challenges are really fun to do!  

I used the Essentials By Ellen Bokeh Dots by Julie and the Paper Smooches Chit Chat set to make a super simple thank you card.  First, I masked off the edges of the card with blue painters tape and sponges on some Tim Holtz Distress Ink.  Next, I used the Bokeh Dots set with a very light gray ink to add some more dimension to the background.  After finishing the background, I removed the mask, stamped the sentiment in Black Versafine Ink and heat embossed  with clear embossing powder.

SSS Scribble Flowers

Today's project is an entry into Simon Says Use Your Favorite Technique or Product.  I am loving doing watercolor with the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens!  The SSS Scribble Flowers Stamp set was a perfect set to try out the pens.  

The flowers were stamped on Strathmore Watercolor Paper with black archival ink.  The pens did rest.  The sentiment is from the SSS Flowers On My Mind Set.
