A New Thank You Card

Hope you all have had an amazing weekend! 
I'm so excited that the temperature has dropped some here in Western Georgia. 
It's still warm, but certainly cool than it was a few weeks ago.


Here is the cute little thank you card I created this weekend. 




I used the "thanks" stamp from our Feel So Blessed set, from Close to my Heart! 
If you purchased this set for $5 during September, then you already have it! 
I used Sweet Leaf exclusive ink for the sentiment. 

I used a few rhinestone bitty sparkles, to jazz it up. 

Then there're three layers of patterned paper. 
All three layers are from the Cats and Bats paper pack from Close to my Heart. 
The cobwebs layer, the orange layer and the letters layer.

I submitted my card to a few challenges this week:

A Little Card For A New Little One...

A good friend, is expecting a little girl any day now. 
Her nursery theme is dragons and fairytales. 
So this digital Dragoon stamp from Sasayaki Glitter Digital Stamps was perfect!






The stamp has been colored in with copics. 
The Sweet Leaf cardstock is from Close to my Heart. 
Embellished with Bitty Sparkles
The sentiment is from the For You Darling stamp set from Close to my Heart as well.

I submitted this card into a few challenges:

Triple Stamped Card for a Few Challenges




This week I wanted to feature a card that was not only beautiful, but it doesn't include patterned paper, so it's the perfect technique for those that are just starting out in the stamping world and may only have a few supplies. 

This post will just feature the card itself, but I will have a tutorial posted in the next few days.





For this card, I used For You Darling stamp set by Close to my Heart, to create the floral pattern.

Tuxedo Black Memento Ink for all of the stamping and really thats about it. Very simple. 

I submitted this card to several challenges as well:

Beautiful Scales Card





Today, I get to share a simple yet elegant card I created using the 
Mermaid #3 Digital Stamp from IKEsART shop. 

Such a lovely stamp to color using my ShinHan Markers
The white layer, and the green layer are both distressed on the edging. On the white layer, I used the Blossom Mini Pigment Ink Pad
The green cardstock is Sweet Leaf by Close to my Heart

The "Just For You" greeting is from the retired Say It All stamp set by Close to my Heart. If you were fortunate enough to purchase it while it was available you will find it is so versatile.


Three Bitty Rhinestone Sparkles in the corner and that's all it took.

A Quick Birthday Card For A Little Boy...

Today's card is a quick little card I whipped up in literally a few minutes.





I utilized a few layers of cardtsock, a few circle punches, and two of my favorite stamp sets. 
I utilized the party hat stamp from Sweet Birthday and the greeting on the inside from Birthday Sparkles both from Close to my Heart. 
I colored in the little birthday hat with my ShinHan Markers, and popped it up on the 3-D Foam Tape

I also stamped a few party hats with VersaMark Ink to create a subtle background. 



I stamped the inside greeting with Tuxedo Black Ink by Memento.

I submitted the card to a few challenges as well:

Cute Little Hello Card




This morning, I had the most fun creating this cute little card with the "Movie Star" digital line art image from the Melonheadz Clip Art set "Stars Clip Art".





To create this card, I colored in the digital image with my ShinHan markers.
I used a few pieces of ribbon for my embellishment.


I stamped the sentiment "Well, Hello" from the Short and Sweet stamp set with Tuxedo Memento Ink.



I layered the image onto a piece of cardstock.




Then I recycled an old cello card envelope and filled it with some sparkly embossing powder to create my own little shaker card. I then mounted the entire envelope onto the card base with some thin 3-D foam tape.


The inside of the card is simply a piece of white cardstock that I sponged the edges with my Cranberry Mini Pigment Ink Pad.


I also stamped a little stars image with the "Party Gathering" stamp set.

I also entered this card into a few challenges:

An Elegant, Yet Simple Card...

This afternoon, I created this quick card:


I utilized our ShinHan Markers to color in the main image. 
I popped the main image up off the card with a strip of our Thin 3-D Foam Tape
Our Thin 3-D Foam Tape comes in two widths. They are 3/8' and 1/4 ". You receive a roll of each in the pack. 




The sentiment "It's Your Day", is from our "Say It All" Stamp Set. 
Don't forget tomorrow is the last day to purchase the "Say It All" Stamp Set. 
This stamp set is part of the Stampaganza promotion that ends tomorrow as well. 
You can purchase two stamp sets and receive the 3rd set for free. 


The background scenery was created with ink. However, the polka dot paper and the paper behind the sentiment are both part of the Fundamental Paper Packs. 

I also used the ShiHan Markers to create the blades of grass in the scene. 

Thank you for stopping by!
