...Thank You Stationery Sets

It has been forever since I have had a chance to stamp...UGH! I finally decided to make myself sit down and focus on getting some projects done. So I worked on several thank you card sets for a few ladies that have been a huge help to me lately. Then I also decided to make Christmas cards to mail out this week...60 of them in all. The stationery has a Whisper White card base that measures 5-1/2" X 4-1/4" when folded. I used the flourish and flower medallion from the set "Carte Postale" as the focal image. The flourish is stamped in the following colors: Eggplant Envy, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Not Quite Navy, and Chocolate Chip. The flower medallion is stamped in VersaMark then embossed with either Ranger Silver Embossing Powder (the chocolate, eggplant, and navy ones), or Ranger Black Embossing Powder (the pumpkin and red ones) onto cardstock in the same colors as the flourishes. Once they were embossed, I used the 1-3/8" Circle Punch to punch out the medallions. Dimensionals were used to pop the medallions up off of the flourishes. The edges were sponged with a Sponge Dauber in their respective colors, and "thank you" was added to the lower right corners. I used thank you's from the following sets: "Stem Silhouettes", "Carte Postale", and "Warmest Regards". Each card has a coordinating envelope that is stamped in the lower right corner with the bird from "Carte Postale" also. Then each color is bundled with Organdy Ribbon in the same color as the images.


And these are the finished products! Aren't they adorable?! I made five sets of ten in all, and I can't wait to get them out to my darling ladies! I hope they enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them. I may end up making a set for each color in the Stampin' Up! line. I think they would be wonderful thank you gifts for hostesses and even teachers. That is what I am going to do for my boys' teachers and coaches this year.




These are my Christmas cards for this year...very simple and easy to mass produce! The card base is Whisper White that measures 5-1/2" X 4-1/4". The tree is from the set "Solemn Stillness", and it is stamped in Garden Green ink. The sentiment is from "Many Merry Messages", and it is also stamped in Garden Green. Easy Peasy! Love, love, love it!





That's it for today! Thanks so much for stopping by to check out my creations. I will try my best to post everyday this week...I promise! Well, until tomorrow...Hugs ~ Mercy
