I created a couple of Thank You Cards last week for my customers of which most have already been posted (forgot to take photos) but I do have a couple that I will use for the remainder of September. I’ve used the Wood Words Stamp Set.
The first lot of cards sent out were stamped directly onto the Note Card itself while the next lot of cards had a layer of contrasting In Colour CS. My samples today have Lemon Lime Twist & Berry Burst.
All I did was randomly stamp my images in Sahara Sand & Lemon Lime Twist onto a piece of Whisper White CS. The sentiment is from the same set & stamped direct onto the Card in Lemon Lime Twist. I then layered it onto a piece of Lemon Lime Twist CSbefore adhering to the Note Card.
My 2nd card I am showing you is the Berry Burst one which was created exactly the same way.
I repeated the same process for the other cards but substituting the In-Colours each time.
I’m not too sure which one is my favourite as I am loving these In-Colours. Which is your favourite?
I’m not sure if you have noticed I’ve been missing in action the past week but fingers crossed I will be back to normal for a week or so anyhow. I do post to my FB Pageif I am not posting here so be sure to check it out.
What have I been doing? Invitations! My nephew is getting married in Argentina next year & I have been playing with invitations for him. I am almost finished the English side of things & then I have to start on the Spanish side of it all. A very long process but one that I am more than happy with.
My cards today have been created using the lovely Wood Words Stamp Set& have been created from a couple of different designs from Pinterest. I wanted something quick, easy, simple yet elegant. I think I have achieved that but would love to know what you think?
I’ve stamped the floral image direct onto Whisper White CSin Berry Burst Ink– love this colour towards the top of the Card & then repeated it again for the bottom part of the Card.
I stamped “A Note for You” direct onto a piece of Whisper White CS in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, adhered a piece of Powder Pink CStop & bottom before layering over the top of the stamped flowers & trimming the edges.
The whole piece was layered onto a piece of Fresh Fig CS& then to the Base Card – Whisper White.
The star image was stamped onto scrap Whisper White CS, punched with the 1″ Circle Punch & layered onto a piece of Powder Pink CS which has been punched with the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch before being adhered to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

My card was one I had started playing with a couple of weeks ago & has been sitting on my desk in bits & pieces for a couple of weeks now. Instead of starting from scratch I challenged myself to use what I had started so I sat down & then bang, it hit me. The flowers from the “Wood Words” Stamp Set were perfect as they remind me of Thailand. The colours I didn’t have to change at all as I had gone with Berry Burst & Lemon Lime TwistInks & Card & I think they are the perfect colours……
I do hope all the Demonstrators who have earned the Thailand Incentive Trip are enjoying themselves as it is such a lovely country.
