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 🙂
