October Thank Yous - Painted Harvest

Happy Thursday!

Today I am sharing the card my customers received as a thank you for placing an on-line order during the month of October.


I tried the eclipse technique for my October thank you cards. Yes, you are seeing double! I have two different versions--everyone that placed an order during October received the Fall version and those who placed two orders also received the Noel version.

Let's take a look at the Fall card:


The sunflowers are easy to create with the two-step Painted Harvest stamp set.

Here is the inside and envelope:


Now for a closer look at the Noel card:


A change of colors and the sunflowers transform into poinsettias (with a little bit of imagination)!

The inside and envelope are the same as the first card:


Have I mentioned that I love the Painted Harvest stamp set?!?!?


Supply List:  Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, and Whisper White CS, Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry, Early Espresso, Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, Powder Pink, and Pumpkin Pie Ink, Very Vanilla and Whisper White Envelopes, Large Letters Framelits, and Painted Harvest Stamp Set

Supply List:  Basic Black, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, and Whisper White CS, Pumpkin Pie and Tuxedo Black Ink, Medium White Envelope, Crushed Curry Baker's Twine, Black Rhinestones, Cat Punch, and Spooky Cat Stamp Set

All About Everything Thank Yous

Happy Tuesday!

Last year I needed to make thank you cards for Wolfgang so I pulled out the pretty and versatile All About Everything stamp set. This set was a bonus stamp set in Paper Pumpkin's 3rd Birthday Kit.


I made multiples of the same card design in Marina Mist, Pink Pirouette, Rich Razzleberry, Rose Red, and Tangerine Tango.

Here is a close-up of the Rich Razzleberry version:


The inside and matching envelope:


And, a look at a few of the cards packaged with coordinating Hershey Nugget holders:

July Thank Yous - Fabulous Flamingo

Happy Friday!

Today I am sharing the card my customers received as a thank you for placing an on-line order during the month of July.


It sure is easy to make beautiful flamingos with the multi-step Fabulous Flamingo stamp set. Delightful Daisy DSP isn't just for daisies--the striped pattern looked like the perfect layer for this card.

Here is the inside and coordinating envelope:


A couple of fronds and a strip of DSP leave plenty of room for a sentiment to be added.

Thanksgiving Cards and More Class

Happy Thursday and Happy Thanksgiving!



Today seems the perfect time to post the cards and projects from last month's Thanksgiving Cards and More Class.

The class consisted of two cards, a candle, a wine bottle tag, and a treat holder.

Let's start with the matching card and candle:



I love the Painted Harvest stamp set. It is amazing how the flowers 'come to life' when stamped. I am happy to report that stamping on battery candles works out beautifully!

Here is the inside and matching envelope:



The wine bottle tag (which was a big hit!) and cute treat holder (which holds quite a bit of candy!):



This is the second card:



We used the Colorful Seasons stamp set for the leaves.

A peek at the inside and matching envelope:



Lastly, here is the table gift I made for everyone:



My friend, Diana, made an acorn for me a few years ago and I have always treasured it. I thought this was a perfect table gift for the Thanksgiving-themed class. The template is from My Scrap Chick.

Happy crafting!
