Thank You...


Hello Journey friends,

Today (and in the next few days), I'll be sharing cards with the "Thank You" theme.  I find at this time of year, I need cards that I can send out to friends and family to say Thank You for the many lovely gifts I received over the holidays.  Do you like to send thank you cards after the holidays?  

I wanted to create some cards that could be mass produced and created quickly but still retain a sense of beauty and artsy characteristics...Soo here's the first card I created:  

I started out with a base of Whip Cream cardstock.  I stamped the burlap print using Pumpkin Bread ink and overstamped the Dhalia Burst image on top with the Blue Lagoon ink.  I then used some reinkers (Blue Lagoon and Butter Cream) with some Blending Solution and a thin brush.  I love the look of the coloring over the stamped background- it kind-of reminds me of translucent vellum laying over the top.  After coloring the images, I stamped the Thank You sentiment onto Oatmeal Cookie ink banner then rolled the edges and cut the ends...Popped that up onto the page and VOILA!

Mounting this stamped panel onto a Cocoa Powder card base finished this card up.  I suppose adding a bit of splatter from Gold or Copper silk would put this card over the top, but I had restraint this time.  ;)

Items used in creating this card:  

Stamps: Dahlia Burst, Media Pattern, Thank You ATS
Papers:  Whip Cream, Cocoa Powder, Oatmeal Cookie
Inks:  Pumpkin Bread, Blue Lagoon, Black Licorice
Reinkers: Blue Lagoon, Banana Cream, Fusion Blender Solution
Embellishing Elements:  None
Adhesives:  Small Foam Squares, Journey Craft Glue
