May Giveaway Starts Today... and more thanks!

On these blue cards I used a little messy "nest" of metallic string to give some pizzazz! These are stunning in real life!

The red cards got lots of BLING around their sentiments! The red card stock is very shimmery too!

The yellow cards are the prettiest, I think! I colored clear gems with Copics on one and black pearls really POP on the other!

Hello and welcome!

Happy May to you! I hope you've stopped by to see the rest of my thanks cards (see my last post) and to see what this month's giveaway is!

At top are the rest of my thanks cards that I made using embellishments (the "THANKS" dimensional stickers) by matching the card stock to the sticker and doing some tone-on-tone stamping and/or clear heat embossing! I used some cover-a-card stamps by Impression Obsession for most of them so it went quickly. Trying to find the right bling or pearls took the longest!

Now onto May's giveaway! Here's the photo:

  1. Wow! I am so impressed at how many variations of "thanks" cards you mastered here! It's always so fun to see the differences in styles and colors for a similar cad theme and it was a treat to see how many ideas you came up with. I love the metallic string nest on the blue set of card, adore the vibrant red in the second set, and really like how the backgrounds on the yellow pair are so subtle, yet elegant. Thank you so much for providing a visual feast and for sharing your work with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!

  3. Hi Kris ~ Your cards are, once again, simply gorgeous!! What brand cardstock did you use? That blue is especially brilliant!! Your finishing touches add such nice elements to your cards. Is that Perfect Pearls on the cards to give that shimmery look? (I already own those goodies, but wanted to let you know I really LOVE your cards!!). Thanks so much for sharing!!

  4. Fabulous cards, love all the different colours.
