Thanks a Million!

I saw this fantastic card & put my own spin on it! Best of all, this was simple to make but really packs a punch! The swirly words state: "One person can make such a difference & that person is you!" What a great sentiment! Hand Stamped Sentiments has a great challenge for back to school. This would be an ideal Thank You Card for a teacher or mentor in your child's life.

Cardstock: Real Red, Basic Black
Ink: Whisper White, Real Red, Basic Black
Stamps: Word Play, For All You Do, Flight of the Butterfly
Accessories: Basic Black Satin Ribbon, Decorative Label Punch

Double, er, Triple Up!

This past month has been so super crazy busy for me! I started my new job which I love but I'm stuggling to get my balance back since my change also changed my hours. I'm now an 8-5er again instead of random day/evening hours. Today is the first day I've had a chance to get inky in FOREVA!
Anyways, I found some super fun challenges and am going to try to whip out 5 cards today! ;) Here's the first! I made this great 3x3 easel card plus matching envelope which can easily be tucked into a gift. This card was so easy peasy plus it took me less than 10 minutes to make!
CAS-ual Fridays conspired with Clean & Simple Stamping for this great sketch challenge.

The Play Date Cafe has a great color challenge of Fudge, Goldenrod, & Teal.
I also added the Splitcoaststampers Technique of Heat Embossing on Dry Embossing.
Cardstock: Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight
Ink: Old Olive & Pacific Point to create the Teal color, Chocolate Chip
Stamp: Create a Cupcake, Strength & Hope
Accessories: Rhinestones, Decorative Label Punch, Perfect Polka Dots, Clear Embossing Powder, Acetate
Have a fab day!
