Thank you stash

Hi!  Hope you had a wonderful weekend.  I was very busy around the house.  Every few months, I cook chicken and make a bunch of homemade stock for the freezer.  So far (knock on wood), my husband and I have escaped the colds and flu but I wanted to be prepared in case I need some soup and some easy meals to put together.  When not in the kitchen, I was in the craft room.

My "thank you" card stash was getting very bare so I made a few cards this weekend.  For these two, I used several shades of green paint on a Hero Arts background stamp and then applied to a couple of different pattern papers.

For the blue/green flower, I stamped an image from Stampendous on pale blue cardstock and cut it out.  Then I brushed on a mixture of Glossy Accents and Tumbled Glass ink - just a couple of drops goes a long way.

For the other card, I used some Prima flowers and trim with a simple message.  This all sounds very fast but I have to admit it wasn't.  I hemmed and hawed and tried all kinds of combinations before I was happy.  Still it was a fun and a break from standing in the kitchen and my stash is restored.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Love your cards... the glossy accents looks great on your flower! Thanks for sharing ;) Kathi

  2. Great cards...i love the glossy accent technique that you used.

  3. Lisa, I love them both. The leaf background makes a perfect scene for the flowers on top. I may have to purchase this stamp. I could do a ton of flower cards with that. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Both of your cards are so pretty :)
    Happy you two have missed the colds that have been going around :)
