Thank You Cards

I think I'm breaking a record this week with the number of blog postings!  I should really be posting more anyways, but the move to Hawaii has really thrown me for a loop.  I'm just starting to get organized again, so that's something to be thankful for.  And speaking of blessings, I have two cards to share today :)

I needed to make thank you cards for some special people in my life, so this is the first card I came up with: 

The background stamp is one of my favorite Hero Art's background stamps (Leaf and Floral background).  I inked the back panel with peacock feathers distress ink and then stamped the background in the same color.  The sweet flower stamp is from Penny Black (delicate florals), which I colored with copics.  The card is finished with a sentiment from Paper Smooches' Spiritual Sampler-- they really have the best sentiments! 

The next card is a little different, but I think it's still in the same vein: 

Sorry for the weird photograph-- the vellum actually is normal colored in real life!  Anyways, I stamped Penny Black's Glory of Modesty background stamp on a white cardstock panel and clear embossed it.  I then used Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick distress inks to color in the flowers:

Ink the middle with the darker shade (Worn Lipstick)
Blend the darker shade out from the center with the lighter color (Spun Sugar)
I didn't have any daubers to do this, but the q-tips worked great!  The distress inks blend really nicely, so this is an easy technique for anyone to try.  I finished the card with the same sentiment that was embossed in black on vellum. 

That's all for me today.  Thanks for stopping by! 



  1. Gorgeous cards! I love that sentiment! I really like how colored those pretty!

  2. These are so Beautiful and pretty! LOOOVE them both!


Many thanks for each and every thoughtful comment! Your feedback is genuinely appreciated--I only hope you enjoy my cards as much as I enjoy your comments!
