Floral Thank You Cards

Hi, guys! Hope all is well! Today I am sharing a pair of thank you cards I was asked to make for a co-worker.

This first one features a Papertrey Ink stamp.  I liked the color combination when I was finished.  I kept it simple, but I think it looks very clean and neat.  The image is heat embossed using Ranger Silver embossing powder.


Supplies:
Stamps: Papertrey Ink
Paper: Gina K Designs, Stampin' Up
Ink: Versamark
Misc.: Ranger Silver Embossing Powder, Stampin' Up Flowers & Brads, SU Silver Cord

For the next one, I decided to use one of my older stamps that I hadn't used in a long while.  It is by Anna Griffin.  I love her work and style, and am glad I took it out to use!



Supplies:
Stamps: Anna Griffin, Stampers Anonymous
Paper: Gina K Designs, Stampin' Up, Tim Holtz
Ink: Distress Inks, Stampin' Up,Versamark
Misc.: White Embossing Powder, Tim Holtz Banner Die

I heat embossed the image with white powder, and colored it using my favorite Springtime colors.

I hope I have inspired you to look through your stamps and use a few that you haven't used in awhile -  it is so much fun!

Have a great day!

What beautiful cards, Winnie. I love Anna Griffin's stuff. We don't see much here in the UK but she comes over to QVC a couple of times a year. Such beautiful kits and stamps. Thanks for sharing your cards. You've inspired me to have a riffle through my stash today.

Lovely cards - sometimes plain and simple showcases the stamp best! I also have that Anna Griffin stamp -- your take on it turned out totally different from mine! Love how diverse we all are -- fun to find new ideas/ways for using my supplies!

Both cards are super pretty Winnie! I love the soft colors on the 2nd one. Thank you cards are always good to have on hand. I need to make more of these for sure!
