January SOTM Blog Hop - Every Thank You

Welcome to the January Stamp of the Month blog hop. 

This month, the featured stamp set is called Every Thank You and it contains tons of ways to say thanks! 

You should have arrived here from Maureen O'Sullivan's blog. If you get lost along the way, a list of all participants can be found on Melinda Everitt's blog

My first thought for this stamp was a colourful thank you card. I measured the card front and separated it into seven even sections. The same image was stamped in seven different ink colours. The word YOU at the bottom was stamped in Mink and then the lined design was stamped over in Pewter. A few hearts were stamped on the right side and I used the Pewter Journaling Pen to outline the front. Clean and simple! 

The second card is totally different... I die cut the Olive Branches Background and then inked it using Peacock Feathers and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide inks. The sentiment was stamped and embossed in white. I added some Oasis Holographic paper on the card base and then decided to turn it into a shaker. There is foam tape across the middle so the shaker components live in half a card area only. 

I hope you enjoyed my cards.
