Thank You! Thank You!

Can we ever have enough Thank You cards? I am always in need of thanking someone, so I find I am making cards pretty often. I happen to be pretty good at getting the cards made, but it takes me forever to get them filled out and sent. I really need to work on that part!

I made these first cards to send to the people who sent in donations for the Bike MS ride I did. The ride is 2 days and takes place mostly in Northern Utah with some short ventures into Idaho.

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps: Flight of the Butterfly #111564
Ink: Orchid Opulence #101859, Almost Amethyst #101723, Black Stampin' Write Marker #105394
Card stock: Regal Rose #105130, Whisper White #100730, Almost Amethyst (asst) #108695
Punch: Butterfly #116629
Patterned paper (American Crafts) and brads from stash

The next set of Thank You cards I made were for my birthday. These are some of my favorite cards that I've made recently. I love the new In Colors, stamps and Designer Series Paper in the 2009-2010 Idea Book and Catalog. I think this card showcases them nicely!

Monogram Cards with Box

I have definitely been away from my blog for much too long! I have been busy wrapping up one job to transition to another, and am also finishing up classes for a certification through work. Times have been busy! I am finally finding time to get caught up on my blog, and I've been finding time to craft, too!
First, it's time to do some catch-up! Here are some card sets I made for my mom, James's mom, and my dad's girlfriend.
I made these for Mother's Day, so many of the items I used are now Retired from SU. However, I hope you will be able to use the ideas with items from the current catalog! All items used Whisper White Textured Card Stock (106529), Regal Rose Card Stock (105130), Regal Rose ink pad (105211), and the Scallop Circle Punch (109043). I also used the Big Deal Alphabet stamp set (retired) for the letters. I think the Contempo Alphabet (111570), or the Lovely Letters Alphabet (115030) stamp sets would look great on monogram cards, too!
Each set included two note cards.
I used Regal Rose card stock on the box and in many of the pictures. I also used Brocade Blue patterned paper, which was one of the Hostess Set choices from the last catalog. Although this option is no longer available, there is another Patterns Pack Designer Series Paper 3 (116234) in this catalog available as a Level 1 Hostess Set. The ribbon is Certainly Celery (109050). I used the Oval All stamp s Set (113790), the Large Oval Punch (107305) and the Scallop Oval Punch (114889) and the So Saffron Stampin' Write Marker (105114).
This card utilized the Top Note Die (113463) for the Big Shot Die-Cut Machine (113439).

In addition to items already listed, I used the Trio Flower Punch (109183).

For this card, I used the Great Friend stamp set (113792), Old Olive ink (102277) and Almost Amethyst ink (101723).

I used So Saffron card stock (105118) for the circle, So Saffron ribbon (retired) and Whisper White Satin Ribbon (114616).

These sets were fun to make and give away!
