Subtle and Bright

Hello Everyone

A quick post today with some of my summer thank you cards. I make a little thank you card to give to my lovely customers with each of their orders.

These first ones were totally inspired and CASED from my lovely online friend Anne Marie over in Texas who used her Subtle colour pallet with my favourite stamp set Kimono Kids. Until then I had used bright reds and blacks for these stamps.

Those little Kimono Kids look so sweet in Pirouette Pink and Bashful Blue. I coloured them using blender pens and inks to get a soft look.

Now for something brighter for my next crop of thank you cards...

For these I started with square cards in Tempting Turquoise, Regal Rose, Pumpkin Pie & Concord Crush. Now officially the Concord Crush is an In Color - not from the Brights collection - but I thought the four colours worked well together.

I started by embossing the base cards with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. I used the 1 1/4" square punch to quickly punch the scraps into squares to make the layer.

The images on the cards and envelopes are from the lovely Cute by the Inch hostess set.

I hope you like my subtle and bright cards.
