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!
