More Thanks

The weekend is here! Yay! This past week was jam-packed and I’m ready for a day off!

Today, I’m sharing a bunch of Thank You cards I have made. The rainbow ones I made back in January and never shared. The blue ones I made recently for our PTO at school to give. I tried to use the school colors and keep them manly, because they are all for men!  😉

For all these first Thank You cards, I used Concord & 9th’s Many Thanks die and for some I used their Many Thanks Turnabout Stamp. Love that stamp! It makes you want all the turnabouts, right? I quite enjoy the way the peeps at Concord & 9th think–quite inventive!

I scored all these card panels & stitched on the speech bubbles, but neither shows up fantastically in these photos. Hooray for Rainbows 🌈! 🙂

I used Copic Markers to color these for bulk purposes. Generally speaking, I like to use colored cardstock to cut the letters instead. I’m a purest, I guess. 😂! However, sometimes you just need to get some cards made! So I took the quick route on these above.

This next set below, are the “manly” ones for school.

These used both white and a dark blue colored cardstock. As you can see, it worked out one-for-one! So I had nothing leftover. Whoohooo!

Sometimes I used the outline of the speech bubble, sometimes not. Also a fun thing to be about to add or take away. 🙂

This ombre paper above is by Lil’ Inker and I am LOVING it big time! It was gifted to us at our recent retreat. Now I fear I will not use it because I ❤ it so! Ha! It is THIS Ombre Stripes Lil’ Inker pad. Thank you so much, Lil’ Inker! ❤

This patterned paper below was just found in my stash. 🙂 It worked out pretty well too. But it’s no ombre stripe! 😉

This two below I used the turnabout stamp to create the background. I used the same gray colored ink pads on both, but to me they look slightly different. Weird. :).

Of course, all my cards were polished off with a little stitching in end.

I’m so glad these all came together. I will definitely be using all these Concord & 9th products regularly around here. I am a sucker for simple fonts and speech bubbles though, so that’s a given! Ha! If I could just work and design faster, they’d be quick work! But I’m not a bulk producer, so I’m ok with the slower pace. 🙂

You can see a “Fall” themed Thank you card I made with these products HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Enjoy your weekend! 🙂

Take care– Jill 🙂

Thank You Notes

Happy Almost Christmas! Just popping in to share a couple *Thank You* notes. One I made back in the fall and forgot to share, and this holiday one I made last night. Because: Crafty therapy! 🙂

Eeeeep is this the cutest little sleigh full or what? 🙂 I used Avery Elle’s Sledding Critters and the coordinating die HERE. For the background I blended on Cracked Pistachio Oxide ink. ❤

I used Copic Markers to color these cuties and added Glossy Accents, Wink of Stella, and some Nuvo drops. So fun! I ❤ THIS stamp from Avery Elle, so naturally this is the winter counterpart 😉 . (Check out a card I made with the Birthday Bus stamp/die HERE!)

Next up, I made the Thank You card below using THIS unique stamp from Concord & 9th. They always have some clever goods over there! 🙂 Many Thanks Turnabout Stamp! Hooray!

you can tell by the pumpkin in the pic, I made this back in the Fall, so it has more of an autumn feel.

lso used Concord &  9th’s Many Thanks dies to create the focal point speech bubble. I have always been a HUGE fan of speech bubbles, and this one is large and FUN! 🙂

Ok, that is all from me today! I had a busy day of laundry, baking and family fun! More to do on all that tomorrow too!! 🙂

Have a Happy Christmas All!  Jill 🙂

Enjoy! Concord & 9th!

Over the crazy holiday months, I had the good fortune to win some awesome Concord & 9th goodies via Instagram. I was VERY excited! I mean, who wouldn’t be?! 😉

I’ve been tinkering with some of my new goodies here and there, and I’m looking forward to making more. Their products are fresh, innovative, and spark so many possibilities. If you haven’t gushed yet, I encourage you to check them out HERE. Fantabulous! 🙂

hawkins_jill_enjoy_00_wmI stamped the ‘Enjoy’ in navy ink, to mix it up a bit. I like how it plays off the Distress colors I used. I can never decide when I should stop messing with the watercolors. Then, I accidentally splattered the panel, so hence, the whole thing was splattered in the end! 🙂hawkins_jill_enjoy_wmThis set from Concord & 9th is called: Lots of Blots. 😉
