I always make and give thank you cards for any gifts received - just the good manners I was installed with I guess and today I took a break from my new toy, my fantastic Kindle that the lovely Santa bought me for Christmas this year to make a few thank you cards (I have already downloaded about £100 worth of books to it as well as umpteen freebies as well so should keep me going for a little while!).
This first one is for Paper Pal Arts #74 for the sketch, Stacey's Curtain Call #62 to use Pear Pizzazz, Early Espresso, Baja Breeze and White and for Leah's Papertrey Princess Challenge to use polka dots and flowers. And continuing with my goal to use up some of my DSP horde, sorry collection, I dug out some untouched Kioshi paper from Basic Gray that was almost a perfect colour match for this challenge.
Stamps: Mat Stack 1 Collection, Beautiful Blooms both from PTI
Papers: Baja Breeze, Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz all from SU, Stamper's Select White from PTI, Kioshi DSP from Basic Gray
Inks: Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz both from SU
Accessories: Early Espresso grosgrain ribbon from SU, Victorian Lace Die, Beautiful Blooms Dies #1, Eyelet Border Die, Mat Stack 1 die all from PTI, Buttons from Elzybells
And my next card is for Diane's Papertrey Princess challenge to be inspired by your wardrobe colours (my wardrobe consists mainly of black and pink, with a bit of purple and the odd thing in a few other colours!). I also did this one for Stampin' Royalty's #51 for the sketch and Our Creative Corner's Fa-la-la Felt challenge. And again I'm using up some of that DSP stash!!!
Stamps: Beautiful Blooms, Mega Mixed Messages both from PTI
Papers: Raspberry Fizz cs and DSP, Stampers Select White both from PTI, Basic Black from SU, Dotty DSP from My Mind's Eye
Inks: Raspberry Fizz from SU, Basic Black from SU
Accessories: Beautiful Blooms Dies #2, Raspberry Fizz Felt both from SU, Polka Dot Ribbon from stash, Button from stash, Embroidery Thread
And my final card for today is for Just Magnolia's sketch #86, Totally Tilda's #12 to make an easel card and for Papertake Weekly's Anything Goes challenge. As I still have my Christmas stash box out I thought I would make a proper Christmas thank you using up some of my mountain of Christmas DSP that I hardly touched this year.
Stamps: Reindeer Tilda from Magnolia, Signature Christmas from PTI
Papers: Ruby Red (retired), Old Olive both from SU, Christmas DSP from Papermania, Gold card in stash box, Copics White cs
Inks: Ruby Red (retired) from SU, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics
Accessories: Snowflakes Embossin Folder, Oval Nestabilities, Oval Punches, Scallop Border Punch, Buttons (retired) all from SU, Embroidery thread from stash, Sequin ribbon thing from Christmas stash box (I think this was a magazine freebie from years ago - I doubt I would have bought it!)
And that's all from me today folks! Thanks for stopping by. I'm sure to be back sometime this week with the rest of my thank you cards as I want to make another 5 or so yet!
