There were so many people who contributed to Sarah's wonderful Ordination service that I needed to crank out some new cards. I have several "Thanks" die cuts, so pulled them out, and die cut them all in black. With that and some patterned papers, I was able to get quite a few done in an afternoon. I made duplicates of a couple of these when I had enough of the patterned paper.
This one uses a die cut and stamp from Simon Says, "Bitty Box" paper from Papertrey Ink, and a heart from my stash of left-over die cuts.
Another die and stamp set from Simon Says, "Sending," and patterned paper from the "Plus One" by Amy Tangerine pad by American Craft.
I just received my order from the Papertrey Ink Anniversary celebration, and you're going to see a lot of these "Swoosh" dies and stamps. The patterned paper is also from Papertrey Ink from their Comic Strip collection. The orange enamel dots are MME.
This is another patterned paper from the "Plus One" by Amy Tangerine paper pad and a die and stamps from W Plus 9's "Hand lettered Thanks."
And last, one of my favorites. I would have loved to make several of these, but here was only one sheet of this paper in the "Plus One" pad.
This is one of the easiest cards ever: adhere the patterned paper to the card, die cut "Thanks" from the Wet Paint series by Papertrey Ink, and adhere it to the card. I'm sure you could replicate the patterned paper with some watercolor paints, but it would be a lot harder!
I wrote this post before we left town. Yesterday I had the great pleasure of meeting up with Cheri of Scrap Dreams and visiting the Philadelphia Flower Show. Photos from that visit are forthcoming, but probably not until we actually get to our final destination this weekend.
We made it as far south as Raleigh, NC tonight, but it was NOT a fun drive. Another winter storm ripped through the east coast from southern New York/New Jersey through Virginia. I wasn't sure we ought to even leave our hotel this morning, but Tracy is an awesome driver and because so many schools and businesses were closed there was a bit less traffic. We saw quite a few cars and trucks off the road, but we made it here without any problem. Tomorrow night we'll be in Florida, and the winter weather should be behind us at least until we head back north in a couple of weeks.
