Kindness – thank you card

Kindness begins with each and every one of us.
This being said, I hope you have a wonderful day filled in with joy, happy thoughts and warm hearts!

I created this card a while ago, actually – last year, but haven’t got the chance to share it. It’s part of a set of three thank you cards I made for a dear friend of mine.

I ran this through the die cut machine using Lawn Fawn stitched border dies. The focus is on the flower. I die-cut it out of a patterned Dovecraft paper using the Daisy layering dies. I threaded it with some lilac elastic twine (cord), added a big button and tied in a bow.

A sentiment that matches the theme is the one I used. It comes from the Hero Arts ‘Acts of kindness’ set. Now, the photos look a bit dark. I took them in a different photo set up where lighting was low. Thanks for your understanding.

Wishing you all the best,

Thanks – Autumn Colours

Hello, everyone! Thanks for joining me today for an autumn coloured thank you card.
I made this for a dear friend, who asked me to create her some cards, and this is one of the three I made.
I’ve got ‘a few’ new distress inks to play with and I thought it was a great idea to create this autumn coloured themed card with. These are candied apple, carved pumpkin, scattered straw and fossilized amber.
As this was an autumn card, I used some leaves stamps from Santoro’s Gorjuss stamp set ‘The Fox’. For those who know me, they can tell I do love all things Gorjuss. So, I gave the small stamps a bit of love and autumn colours. As I wanted to created lovely real colours I mixed the ink directly onto the stamps and then pressed onto a top folded cream card base front. I planned to join the monthly challenge on the Seven Hills Crafts blog page as I used their September challenge template suggestion. Had no time to join then, so here it is, two months later.

The ‘thanks’ script is from Paper Smooches and I die cut it out of cream card and then applied the same distress inks used for leaves. I adhered it using glossy accents under the first row of autumn leaves.

Under the second row of leaves I wrapped around some red twine and just a bit of yellow one tied in a bow to add dimension. For more interest and sparkle, I added some sequins in matching colours.

Thanks for stopping by. Looking forward to be back soon,
Talida

Thank You Blooms

Hello, everyone! It’s been a long time since I last wrote here. There has been a pretty busy month with lots of projects, running my first 10K in an international competition and having the first English issues of a medical Journal I edited, being published. Thank you notes go to great people who’ve been there to support with kind thoughts and good deeds.
