Quick Floral Thank You Note Cards

Add a professional look by stamping a few blooms on the envelope

Because our Note Cards are smaller than a normal card you would cut from an 8-1/2" x 11" piece of card stock, they are much quicker to decorate using stamps and ink! This week I needed a half dozen "THANK YOU's" and I did them relatively quickly, beginning with our Whisper White pre-cut bases (131527 20 cards and envelopes $6) They also come in Crumb Cake.

I chose three beautiful blossoms from Petite Petals. Next, I chose three ink colors: Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum and Wisteria Wonder. I stamped 2-3 of each bloom in one of the colors and made the pattern random so I could just go from card front to card front. I was finished in a snap! I left a little room on the right bottom corner for the sentiment from Thoughtful Branches (in Elegant Eggplant). In about 5 minutes I had my cards ready to be filled out and mailed! 

I hope you are inspired by my cards today. Would you let you know you were here by leaving your comment below? I'd appreciate it!

Happy Birthday in Blue

Happy Thursday! Happy Birthday to the recipient of this fun card. It was the 3rd in a series for my February Workshop and I really enjoyed designing it and then having the gals make theirs to take home.

Stampin' Up! makes it pretty easy to design cards using their matching elements. See pages 76-77 of the Annual Catalog to see this "suite" set of products: Floral Phrases Stamp set, Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper and Detailed Floral Thinlits Dies. I chose to use the "Happy Birthday" from the  Balloon Celebration set, as the Floral Phrases doesn't include a birthday greeting. But isn't that floral spray gorgeous? It looks almost water colored in person with it's faded and bold stamp areas. Next I want to heat emboss with it--wouldn't that be beautiful? 

Other coordinating products include Floral Boutique Designer Washi Tape and Solid Baker's Twine in Night of Navy.
14355 Floral Phrases Clear Mount Bundle   $42.25

Sending Silver Sympathy

I don't like making sympathy cards, however, they are a necessity for card-givers like me. I've learned lately to keep at least one on hand at all times. There are times when you want your card to arrive in a timely fashion or you wish to be able to drop one off with flowers at short notice.

I hadn't used my Flourishing Phrases set much and I got this new Detailed Floral Thinlits dies recently. WOW. Packs a punch without much effort on my part. I chose Basic Black, Basic Gray, Whisper White and Silver Foil paper and I think it's very elegant looking. I accented some of the flowers using Metallic Enamel Shapes and *free* ribbon from Sale-A-Bration.

I'm glad you stopped by today. Won't you leave me a comment? I love reading each one.

Where's the Cake?

Happy Birthday! Now Where's The Cake? I love this sentiment because it's how I think about birthdays! I love the colors on this card. I CASEd this card from Stamp It Up With Jamie. I think I used slightly different colors than she did: Sweet Sugarplum, Peekaboo Punch and Pool Party. I enjoy watercoloring with our ink pads onto our water color paper. It makes me feel like a real painter!

Thank you for looking today! I hope you are inspired to make a card yourself!
