Winter Skies Thank You Cards

Now that Christmas is over it is time to bring out the Thank You Cards.  I make a special thank you card every year to mail out for my son and I.  I just want to make sure those who sent gifts know we appreciate them. Today I was able to carve out some time to design an make all the cards I needed this year.

Check out all those bears and trees….

Here are the two versions of the card I made.  I was inspired to make my purple background after seeing a card on Instagram by Hippofee. I used a retired stamp set called Swirling Stars. The bears and trees are from WINTER SKIES which is a Lawn Fawn Stamp Set.  The Thank You and curved dashed border are also Lawn Fawn.  My thank you cards works well with HEART 2 HEART‘s last challenge of the year…. Wish Upon A Star.

I used Lilac cardstock for the mat and Thistle for the Thank You. I used copic markers to color the trees and scarf. I stamped Swirling Stars with Versamark ink and then heat embossed with White embossing powder. I then sponged the background using Lilac, Thistle and Pansy inks.

For this version I used Bluebird cardstock for the base and Sapphire for the Thank you. The background was crated the same way using Bluebird and Sapphire inks.

Happy Crafting!

Color Dare 310 ~ Peacock, Kraft & Ruby

Welcome to this weeks Color My Heart Color Challenge!  This week for Color Dare #310 we are challenging you to use these CTMH Colors: PEACOCK, KRAFT, and RUBY.  You are able to use neutrals – Black, Grey, Brown, Kraft, Cream and White in your design but no other colors.

At first I was not sure what I as going to do with these colors…. then I noticed the new stamp set Winter Skies by Lawn Fawn sitting on my desk.

I stamped the adorable foxes on Kraft paper with Black ink.  I then used the coordinating die to cut them out.  I colored the tails with a Chalk Marker and the scarves were colored using Ruby ink and a waterbrush. I used another die to cut the snow.  I then used the snowflakes that come with the stamp and used white embossing powder.

Now it is your turn to create! Just create a project (card, layout or other craft project) using this weeks colors.  Then link them to the Color My Heart Blog ~ Color Dare #310 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday September 27, 2018 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Happy Crafting!
