Thank You

Each month demonstrators receive a great magazine, Stampin' Success. Each month there are wonderful projects showcased and a card sketch. I chose to use the card sketch from the April Stampin' Success for my thank you cards. For my first card I used Rich Razzleberry as the base and as the darker color in the daisy flower. If you click on the photos to make them bigger, you will notice that I covered the flowers in Iridescent Ice embossing powder to make them sparkly. It's a cloudy day here today so my camera didn't quite pick up the true colors :-(.

This second card is done in Elegant Eggplant for the base only. The flower is Orchid Opulence and Pale Plum.

The leaves are punched out with the Small Oval punch and then inked on the edges with Always Artichoke Classic Stampin' Ink. The centers of the daisies have a flower punched from the Boho Blossoms punch and inked with Crushed Curry. The small flowers to the right are from the Trio Flower punch, also inked with Crushed Curry. I chose to use rich jewel tone colors for my cards today, but I plan to make more in pastel colors. Have a wonderful day today! See ya' tomorrow!
