Thank You Girft II

Thank You Gifts

This was a really fun project I did with the scallop tag punch, envelope punch board, and BigZ Flower Dies! It made a really nice gift for my daughter's preschool teachers at the end of the year. I put 4 cards in each box along with a Bath and Body Works gift card. They absolutely loved them!

Father's Day Card

The kids and I made a card for Dad this year! I took a piece of multi-media vellum and let my two year old water color all over it using my Stampin Up Aqua Painter. If you pinch your ink pad together with both hands while shut, then when you open it there will be ink on the back of the cover. You can use this ink with the aqua painter to watercolor with. It is very easy! Even a two year old can paint with the aqua painter! Then I let my two year old use finger paint to imprint her hand and I also imprinted my 6 month old's hand as well. I then used this paper like I would Designer Series Paper to make this handsome Father's Day card.

Mothers Day Card for 2014

One of the first flowers my mother shared with me to create my first garden was black-eyed susans. I thought it would be fitting to represent this flower on her card as a thank you for sparking one of my fondest passions in life; flowers and gardening. This card has a minimalistic style, but is yet rather striking and dramatic like black-eyed susan flowers are in the landscape.
My Mother loves black and white designs as well as textured embossing. I not only used the fancy fan texture in the large white area of this card, but I also used the square lattice texture for the center of the flower to give it a more life like look. (Pictures really don't do these textures justice.) The square lattice embossing folder is one of my favorite textured impressions because it is so versatile and it is being discontinued. Get the embossing folder while it still lasts! Click on the link above to purchase it at my online store.

Here are the items I used to make this card:
Colors used: So Saffron, Basic Black, Whisper White
