last weekend our family friend jeanee threw me a lovely shower in springfield. it was great to see family and friends that i haven’t seen in a while. it was also odd to be opening presents when it wasn’t my birthday or christmas. i got some very nice things from some very nice people. and now it is time for my first round of thank you cards.
i thought about ordering some online from my favorite card company, but then i decided to make them (at least some of them).
so yesterday i bought some solid colored cards to stamp and this morning, we got to it.
here are the supplies…all from hobby lobby ( i know, they support fred phelps, but i don’t have many choices)
acrylic craft paint ($.99 a bottle), blank cards ($9.99 for 40), paper paint pallet, craft brushes, stamps, paper towels
we used the same technique as the tags
so put the paper on a piece of paper towel, load the stamp up with paint, press down and remove carefully…
for the best use of your time, do more than one each time you dirty up a stamp
once the first letter is dry, move on
and again with the other letter
taaaadaaaaa! personalized thank you card
mean while, on the other side of the
craft room sweat shop….
