Thanks a lot!

You know that I love a cute thank you card, so today's post is a favorite for me!  Check out the fabulous cards from Gladys and Angela that I have to share!

"I have so much fun stamping my own background using the Admission is Free set from gel-a-tins. They have the solid and the outline stamp of the ticket. I started off stamping the solid ticket in the middle and work my way out. Love the subtle look. For the sentiment, I used the many thanks stamp set."


Paper: Aqua mist from pti, bitty dot from pti, webster page ladies collection, echo park from little girl
Ink: versafine onxy black, Snow fresh from pti
Stamps: Admission is free and many thanks from gelatins
Others: edger #1 collection, leafy vine border, turning a new leaf die, twine

I think that background paper made with the ticket stamps is amazing!  Speaking of making background paper with a stamp, Angela has something else to share...

"I love making my own patterned paper using stamps! For this card I inked the card base in Desert Sand and Black ink, using the Many Thanks set."


"I die cut a tag using paper from My Mind's Eye and a Papertrey Ink die, and stamped the sentiment at the bottom, then added a flower from Sassafras. I punched a little scallop strip using My Mind's Eye paper and a punch from EK Success. The black dotted paper is from October Afternoon.
I think the stamped patterned paper really adds emphasis to the sentiment!"

Isn't that the cutest?  I need to go make one for myself!  Don't forget, we still have the Operation Write Home challenge going on and you have a little more time to send in your monthly challenge project!

Tune in tomorrow for our big DT announcement!
