Thank You Card Extravaganza

Last week I created a bunch of Thank You cards for a co-worker who recently lost her mother-in-law.  I thought it might be nice to have some pretty cards to send to those special people who helped them during their difficult time. I had a friend come over and make a few as well!  It is nice to have some stamping friends who can come lend a hand!

I decided to keep things simple and went with mostly mono-chromatic variations using the same stamps.  It is a bit of a hodge podge of stamps from Magenta, Impression Obsession, Just for Fun, Hampton Arts, Inkadinkado, and Stampin' Up...I think that is all!  Even though I REALLY wanted to add some buttons, brads, ribbons, etc., I refrained.  I didn't want them to have to pay a fortune in postage and to have to use special envelopes to mail them! 

Believe it or not, there was nary a Copic Marker used on these projects!  I know...but I knew it would take too long to do all of the coloring, so I used good old fashioned ink pads for color (except for one where I colored the stamp with Memento markers).

I hope you enjoy the bounty!  Below are close-ups of all of the cards and their variations.

Your cards are all so beautiful Melissa! I've flagged them to try to CASE for my card ministry group - just gorgeous!

Thanks Monica! I enjoyed making them all. Super simple, but by doing the color variations, it made it easy to do multiples that could work for male/female recipients...or at least that is the intention!
