Sending Thanks with Flavor of the Month

It’s time for the card kit again! And I couldn't be more thankful about this one! We all know that card makers need thank you cards and that is just what this kit is all about “Sending Thanks.”

So, join us on the hop and see what our Design Team has created using this very unique kit!

Today, I'm sharing just four of the cards that I made using the kit this month. I used the Double Dip Sundae Level for my cards.

 I challenged myself to make four cards from each collection using the four sketches and I had a blast doing it. But again, I'm only sharing four of the cards. So let's get started...

My first card for Collection One uses Sketch #2. The One of a Kind set by Altenew is a beautiful little set with so many possibilities. I used the No Line Coloring technique for this card. I had a lot of fun coloring this one. The sketch really made this card come together fast. My last little touch was adding a few sequins.

My second card for Collection Two uses Sketch #1. Now with this card, I ended up flipping the sketch and making it my own. How cute are those little sheep, though?! They look like they're having fun! I stamped the sheep in Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored them in with copic markers. I masked them and then blended some distress inks to make my scene. I stamped a few hearts and added some sequins. I also added some touches of white gel pen, but that's hard to see in the picture.

My third card for Collection Three uses Sketch #3. When I saw this raindrop paper I just knew I had to use it for this sketch. I love that the paper is split like you're not sure where the rain starts or ends. I kept to a black and white color scheme for this one. I did add a touch of silver with the thread but I think it works well with the shimmer from the embossed feather. 

My last card for Collection Four uses Sketch #4. This is my most favorite collection of the four... I mean, it is coffee themed! I also loved the woodgrain papers!! I was tempted to do a similar background to my sneak peek card but decided instead to let the papers shine. I love the contrast of the dark grey 'wood' with the light 'pine wood'. I stamped the coffee beans directly on the 'pine wood' paper and then colored them in with copic markers. I then stamped the sentiment on a strip of the 'pine wood' paper and fussy cut it into a banner. I die cut a stitched oval with the light blue card stock and die cut a small piece of the grey 'wood' paper. I adhered that to the blue oval and set it aside. I stamped the coffee cup and steam on a scrap piece of white card stock and colored them in with copic markers. Before coloring them, though, I decided the cup needed something so I stamped the heart from the Cute as a Button Sunny Studio set (so, I guess I used some Banana Split level items on this last card... oops!) I adhered those pieces to my 'table' and thought... it needs something so I added the flower which has a touch of red in the center of the flower, but you really can't see that in this picture. You may just have to take my word for it. Lol. 

Well, that's my first four cards... I'll see you all in a few days with some more fun inspiration. Meanwhile, let's go check out the rest of the wonderful creations from the Design Team.
