A thankful feline

December 21, 2012

It’s easy to express your gratitude with stamping and paper crafting, and this week, the Penny Black teamhas shared several little notes of thanks that are perfect to make and keep on hand, not just for this time of year, but for birthdays and all the little in-between things, too.

Karen Dunbrook created two distinctly different thank you cards – one cute and sweet, one simple and elegant. The colors on both are equally vivid!


Stamps and suppliesJoy to the World; …..wishes/ Copic markers/ pop dots

Karen says, “I stamped the image onto the cardstock front then stamped again, coloured and cut out so I could pop dot to add depth”


Stamps and supplies:  Christmas Pride; Enjoy/ distress inks/ water brush/ pop dots

Karen created a mask for this card by stamping the flower onto a piece of paper and cutting it out so after stamping the main focal flower, she could mask it and stamp the other two on the corners.  She used my distress inks and a water pen to colour the poinsettias. Then when it was dry, she added some shading with Prisma Pencils, and added the black line to pull it all together.

Thanks for stopping by today – if you’re looking for more inspiration, please visit our gallery on Flickr and at Splitcoaststampers. You can also find us on Facebook, and on Twitter, too!  We will be back Sunday with a scrapbook page from Alexandra! – Jenn

    Both these cards are adorable. I really like the bright colors and the clean and simple look you’ve acheived with both.

    Spectacular colours on both but I particularly like the second one – brilliant with the poinsettia.

    Can’t pick a favourite between these two lovely cards. Very different but I’d be happy to receive either one.
