Christmas Thank you

I am sharing a cheerful Christmas Thank you card today.  This sweet Humphrey was rubber stamped using a Crafter’s Companion stamp and coloured with Promarkers.  The backing paper was free in a home craft magazine and has been finished off with jewels in the centre of somesnowflakes.

Cheerful Stamp Pad Challenge – All that Jazz

For my second All That Jazz challenge post I have made a CAS card using the grand piano and added my own sentiment.  Perfect for the piano teacher!

I have had Craft Artist 2 for some time now but I am learning to do different things every time I use it.To get this effct of the border, I used to layer 2 squares but today I discovered that it is far easier to use just one square and make a thick boder around the shape!

Thank you, usher

When my son opened this card he said, ‘It looks just like me.’ He was an usher at my sister’s wedding on Friday and as I was cheif stationer for the wedding, I made this thank you card.

The wedding theme is pink and brown and the digistamp is from Mayzy Art.

Thank you Bridesmaid

I am very pleased with this card I have made for my sister to give my bridesmaid daughter when she gets married tomorrow. The wedding theme is pink and brown and The beautiful digi stamp from A Day For Daisies was chosen because of the Roses – both my daughter and sister are June birthdays and they are the wedding flower.

Cheerful Stamp Pad Challenge – Make it for a man

This is the time of year when children thank their teachers – but what about music teachers? I have made this card today for The Cheerful Stamp Pad, using a digistamp and backing papers from SentimentabaSusan  – available at the Stitchy bear outlet.  I have used stash from Kanabn’s McKenzie and Stampunk ranges to collate the card and the beautiful acetate overlay is from Hunkydory.
