I’ve been busy getting orders out today but needed to send a friend a thank you card. She sent us some really good banana bread! It needed to be quick and easy. And it needed to be flat so I could mail without issues.
I have had this cuddlebug folder forever and have never really been happy with how I made a card with it. But really love it in this layout!
Good Morning. I have an extra day off this week so I get to do some stamping! So much fun! I needed a thank you card and found this tag in my “stash” so I made into into a card. Hope you enjoy your weekend. We have sunshine here in Wisconsin today after a few dreary raining days.
I decided the inside was too plain so added another stamp!
Good Morning. I’ve been loving this new layout and have several cards in the works. I love when you find a layout and can get several ideas from it. It still takes time though to get all the images and colors right. I wish I did not need to grocery shop today! But I guess we still need to eat. 😜
Happy Monday and I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! These two bee cards were so fun to make. I dabbed the honeycomb stamp with a golden ink pad and a yellow ink pad to get the variation. Then I stamped it two more times without re-inking. On the oval, I rubbed the edge of the paper along the ink pad to add color. The bees are colored with a marker.
So last week I showed you one of my card kits. And so today’s card shows how I put them together.., there are four outside sayings along with a inside saying. So when I need a card I have one with the exact saying that I want.
I love doing cards like this so I have options! I feel like these pictures don’t do the card justice. It is so much better in real life.
So this is how my cards start off generally. I will make lots of flowers and color and cut them out. I will stamp and punch out words. Then I’ll build kits of cards. Then when I need a card – I grab a kit and put it together with the words that I want! Then the rest gets put back into the kit pile.
I did add a little bee at the last minute. I needed a thank you card so I looked at my kits and came up with this card.
Hello and happy Wednesday! Here is a coffee thank you card with the coffee beans stamped on a brown swatch for a background. Used a scallop die for the white to make it stand out. Now that I am looking at this card, wondering if I should have added a shadow/surface the cups and coffee pot? Will have to try next time!
