Many Lawn Fawn Thanks



I've been selling my cards at work for quite awhile now (out of a shoebox!) but at the end of November I finally got a little rack to display them and sales have been fantastic!  Now that Christmas is done though I need to crank out more birthday, thank you, hello and thinking of you cards along with the seasonal stuff.  Thank goodness for blog challenges to spark some ideas!  Today's cards are the result of combining the CAS-ual Fridays challenge to make Thank You cards with the colours from the Dynamic Duos challenge.  I used Lawn Fawn stamps and some super fun speech bubble dies sent to me by the lovely Jenny of Crafting in the Country.  I cut each speech bubble in both colours so I could play around with placement and design.  Once it was sorted I made another card with the colours the other way around.  Always a bonus to get two cards done at once!


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Melon Mambo, Island Indigo) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Sentiments from Many Thanks, Grand Greetings, Happy Everything, Claire's ABC's) Lawn Fawn
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Dies:  (XCut Speech Bubbles) Docrafts
Gems:  (Bubblegum & Swimming Pool assortments) Doodlebug, (Black) Reflections for Michael's
Markers:  (BG09) Copic

WOOT on the card sales! That's awesome :) I have a rack too - and it really does make a difference having something like that to display them on.
I love this fun layout & what a great idea to use the multiple sentiments like that. Now I have to pull out that set & CASE you ;)

Well I'm sure these cards wouldn't last too long if they were up on that display shelf! So fun how you have the different fonts and styles in the text bubbles! LOVE that idea, Jen!

Hooray for the cards sales. :) The design you used for this card is great--the colors and shapes are really balanced. I like that Many Thanks stamp--you are so clever.
