Thank You Gift Set

Here is the set of Thank You cards that I was talking about in my last post.  I had so much fun making these cards. I wanted to try to utilize the same stamp set as much as possible, and use clean and simple designs. I think I accomplished this very well with this branches4flowers (Stamps of Life by Stephanie Bernard) stamp set. It is such a versatile stamp set! I also used the Make a Statement (Verve) stamp set on the card with the little birdie.  I once again used my new Color Box by Stephanie Bernard ink pads. I just love the colors! They stamp great!

This type of style is different for me. It is hard for me to figure out how to balance the negative space. 
I love visiting the blogs which feature CAS cards. So I am inspired to try to learn! But my first love will always be cards with lots of layers and bows and ribbons! I'm too much a girly girl to give all that up!

 I hope you are doing well! I and My son are almost well!!!!! Yea!!!!
We take him home next week and I am going to miss him!
Happy stamping!
