Thanks A Bunch

 I love the simplicity of this stamp set. It's so easy to create beautiful cards so quickly, which is great when you need multiples! I needed a few of these in different colours. I did a simple mask and stamped around it, and used the Hand Lettered Thanks stamp set for the sentiment.

You're Amazing


Growing up in a ballet family, I don't mind making the odd ballet card. I quit ballet when I was 10, but my sister is a ballet teacher, so I am definitely still around it all! I thought this one would be great as an encouragement card for a girl doing exams or eisteddfods. Whether she's already competed or is about to, just telling her you think she's amazing is a wonderful gesture. I used the gorgeous Tiddly Inks stamp Be Bold, Be You, and coloured her with copic markers, including the area around her with a grey marker, which I've never done before but loved the look. I added some lace and clear buttons, and of course the You're Amazing die for Simon Says Stamp.
