Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge #19

Happy Thursday to you! We have another beautiful challenge for you at the Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge! This one reminded me of summer weddings, so I made a few 'Thanks so much' cards in bulk! These could be a great idea for the bride-to-be for the wedding party or for after shower thank you notes! Quick and easy!
Stampin' Essentials Tips:
The longest part about creating these cards was stamping the daisy! Since this is a single stamp from the Watercolor Trio set, I used a technique called 'Masking'.
Here's how you do it!
1) I taped over the daisy flowers with the thicker painters tape, then inked up the stamp in Old Olive ink!
2) Remove the tape over the daisies and color the flowers in with yellow ink using markers and/or blender pens
3) Huff (blow) on the stamp to remoisten the ink, then stamp on the image on card stock!
The Paper-Piercing Tool was used to create the hole pattern

  1. Kari I love these cards! I so wish that the Watercolor Trio stamp set made it into the main catalogue.
    Oh - Did you decided if you were going to Regionals? :-)

  2. These cards are so cute. AND - no drum roll please - I decided to start at the top of the "follow me" thread and I'm finding that lots of wonderful blogs have been missed by ME! I am now following you. Thanks for blessing my day. :)

  3. Beautiful and simple - gotta love it!!! I'm following you...

  4. Kari, these CAS thank you notes are just perfect! The pierced corner nicely offsets the flower and sentiment. And the color scheme is a great neutral one, even with the red and yellow in there. I really like them, and they look easy to mass produce. Thanks for the ideas!
