Thank You cards and a photo tutorial

Happy Friday everyone, cute as can be, I've just sat down in the Room of Craft - which is on the first floor and I sit facing the window. Just as i looked up a blue tit was on a tree branch looking in, I just wasn't fast enough with my camera - maybe another time?

So today I have some thank you cards to share with you. When I make one I figure it's easier to just make a whole batch up as I'm always needing them:


I've used Summer Silhouettes from Stampin' Up! I LOVE this set as it's so versatile. Here are some of the cards together:


Want to see how to create them for yourself? It's really simple and you could use any stamp set really too. These are 3" square cards to I cut square of white card measuring 2 3/4" and covered up two thirds with a piece of scrap paper. The inks I've used are Coastal Cabana, Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo, Pistachio Pudding and Elegant Eggplant.

Pick a stamp at a time and stamp each card in roughly the same place, there's no need for accuracy - unless you're really fussy about that sort of thing!


 Just keep going, layering the images over each other until you're happy with the end result.


I added a thank you sentiment and then using a marker, drew a border around each layer before popping them on a card base. Simples.


Looking forward to sending these cuties out. Got a packed day today, I have parcels to send out, chores to do (yawns!), then I need to sort out some Scentsy fragrance samples to send out and most exciting of all I have Scentsy delivery coming and it's all stuff from the new Autumn / Winter catalogue. 

Will be posting about that next so if you're feeling curious as to what Scentsy is - please pop by again.
