Rainbows Everywhere


Some more 'empty bin' projects. Both very simple and visually striking, I think!  For the birthday card, I used a Technique Tuesday set with all the handwritten words and snipped up an old Papertrey sentiment that said "Wishing you a day as special as you are".


For this thank you card, I used two circle nestabilities to cut a ring out of the white panel and then sponged it and placed it back in (couldn't decide if it was easier or harder than masking! lol!) I added a Hero Arts sentiment cut with a Papertrey label die. I call this the rainbow ipod card.



For this card I used MFT's monogram alpha and a flower snipped off of a Michael's thank you stamp to fill up the space (for my English one, thanks went right across the card).

I've made a ton of thank you cards in the last few days - I'll try not to overload you and show you only the ones I think are new and fun!

They're all so gorgeous, but I particularly LOVE the first one - definitely a design you'd see in a high end stationary store somewhere!!

It is always a delight to come by and see what you've been creating, Ardy! Your cards (usually include a rainbow or colors, and who doesn't love a rainbow?) are always bright delights that bring a smile to your readers!!

Three gorgeous cards! The first is my favourite - I love the wonderful scrawly handwriting ;)

Geri said...

Wow! Truly a delightful array of beautiful color, perfectly stamped and brilliantly designed!

Impressive and effective without one embellishment or ribbon (Stickles don't count as an embelly!)

(hey, that would make a great challenge...ink only!)
