Thank You

Hello, my crafty friends! This week is nearing the end and I hope it’s been a good one for you! This month’s Anything Goes with Dies Challenge is live over at Happy Little Stampers and I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project with you today! I created a pretty thank you card featuring a sentiment die cut on a large trellis frame background die cut.

I created two trellis frame die cuts to cover the card base – first a dark teal layer and then an ivory layer on top for a little tone-on-tone interest.


I created two ivory sentiment die cuts and layered them together, and then a dark teal layer on top for some dimension. I placed a tiny clear rhinestone in the center of each diamond aperture and added two Prima flowers.


I layered the inside panel on dark teal and stamped a sentiment from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.


And one more look… this really turned out nice and the teal really pops on the ivory!

Hi everyone! Happy Saturday – hope you had a great week and that you’re enjoying your weekend! If you’re like me, you LOVE your weekends! I’m really stoked to share a CAS project that I created today using a new Close To My Heart stamp and die bundle. I made the decision at the beginning of the year to create more clean and simple cards that are easier to mail. My cards generally have lots of dimension and big bows! ;)


I chose a green monochromatic color scheme. I have quite a few favorite colors (and color combos) but green is my absolute favorite. Since childhood. So I used green foil, green cardstock, green ink, green Spectrum Noir markers and green sequins. Love, love, love!


I kept the inside clean and simple also with a blank panel to write a personal thank you note.
