Four Little Thank Yous

Sparkly Thanks

Working Together Thanks

Tilted Thanks


As promised yesterday, here are 3 little cards that I made to include in an order of 40 thank you cards for a teacher at my daughter's school. 

Now, I could have designed a few and made multiples of each (and that's exactly what I do for my Church Christmas project each year), but it didn't work out that way for this project.

Some of the cards were cases of my previous cards. These 3 are new designs for me and I was happy with each.

Sparkly Thanks used a simple Silhouette cut, adhered to the card base and coated in stardust stickles for sparkle.

Working Together Thanks is so named because those sentiments came from two different sets (but work together so well!). YOU ARE and THANK YOU are Technique Tuesday (Incredible) and the rest are from Simon Says Stamps (On the Edge). I used some striped DP and added the dots in matching colours.

Tilted Thanks uses a sentiment from Uniko Studio (Label Love: Thanks) in a very simple way, with little pops of colour to brighten in up.

Here's another card I made for this order. I take no credit for this, as it is a complete CASE of a card that Donna made here (I can't find it on her blog, only on my inspiration board). I LOVE this simple and yet oh-so-effective design!

Fab selection of thank-yous! I love the sparky thanks. And I had to check in the small print whether you'd drawn all the lines on the working together thanks ;)

Thank you for the fun new thank you card design inspirations, Ardy! Did you do that last one in the falling rainbow letters on the computer or were each of those letters stamped in the different colors?

Each is such an inspiration. I love how the Technique Tuesday and SSS stamps work together and I am thrilled that I have both of them in my stash...I am definitely feeling inspired!

These are great cards. I'm with you. I get bored making the same card over and over. It's more fun to tweek each one until you have something completely different.

"THANK YOU" for sharing these amazingly clean and simply beautiful cards! I love the tilted Thanks card - the design is awesome, but the pops of color are 'brilliant'.

,,,oh, how I need a Silhouette!

Kelly Griglione said...

All fabulous! Really. I would totally do multiples on an order like that. The dots on your second card are totally calling me. Plus the sentiment. Love how it covers the whole card.

ALL beautiful! (...and at such a busy time of the year...that's impressive my friend :)
Please add card #2 (Working together) to my 'list'. You can make it a birthday or thanks or whatever you feel like...I simply love the design & colour combination you created. It's stunning :)

Thank you for all this inspiration in one post. The last one is my favourite with the shower of coloured letters. I might try that on a high patience day!
I had a very short visit to Oshawa last week, my first time driving on the 401 alone! My daughter was competing in the OFSAA track and field championships and I stayed with a friend in Port Union.
What part of TO are you in?
