Thank You For Your Kindness

I made this card using Kindness Matters set from Neat and Tangled to attend the Little Tangles (their challenge blog) challenge#4 - Clean & Simple. Here is the challenge and the card:

I black embossed the heart border two rows slanting on the left bottom corner as well as the "thank you for your kindness" text on the top right corner. Then, I colored the heart with Inktense watercolor pencils and put glossy accent to let them pop out and shine. I used corner rounder to cut the three corners of the card to finish it. This card can be viewed in two ways - the above is the vertical way and below is the horizontal way. You can also personalize this card by adding a person's name in the middle of the white cardstock - either a stamped name or a handwritten name will be perfect to show your appreciation for the kindness.

Here is the horizontal look of the card:

Cardstocks: PTI (white), Stampin' Up (red)
Stamps: Neat and Tangled (Kindness Matters set)
Ink Pads: VersaFine (black)
Others: black embossing powder (Ranger), Inktense watercolor pencils, glossy accent, corner rounder

Paper Smooches Anything Goes Challenge

Paper Smooches has the Anything Goes challenge this week. It's a perfect time I can use my new ordered stamp set of "Cyber Cafe" to make a card. Here is the challenge and the card I made:


I picked one of the "steam" images to stamp the border with brown ink. For the focal image, I chose this cup and colored with Inktense watercolor pencils, then cut it out. I stamped the saucer with brown ink and the text of "a cup of thanks" below it. Then, I attached the cup with foam dots on top of the saucer. I stamped the other steam on top of the cup and colored with glitter pen to finish the card. Here is a closer look of the cup:

Also, I would like to use this card to express my appreciation to all of my friends and families with all of the blessing they gave to me.

Cardstocks: PTI
Stamps: Paper Smooches (Cyber Cafe set)
Ink Pads: Archival Ink Pads (black & brown)
Others: Inktense watercolor pencils, glitter pen, corner rounder
