Alaska Achievers Monthly Blog Hop

Hello Stampers!  Welcome to the Alaska Achievers Monthly Blog Hop!  I'm so excited about this month's topic which is OnStage!  I have posted a few times already over the last two weeks showing pictures from the event, swap cards, roomie gifts, table settings, snacks, and the goodies that I received!  So I decided that today I would share some thank you cards that I made using some of the new product that we received!  

IMG_0995

I created these note cards using both some new items and some of our current or retiring products.  The new stamp set I used is the upcoming Animal Outing stamp set.  It is so cute!!  

The notecards are from a pack called Delightfully Detailed note cards which will be in the upcoming catalog.

Here are some close-ups:

IMG_0996 This card uses some of our burlap ribbon which will be carrying over.  I colored the images with watercolor pencils.

IMG_0997 This card was colored with our Stampin' Blends.  The gorgeous ribbon is our new velvet ribbon and the notice the new Artisan Pearls!!  Love them!

IMG_0998 This card was also colored with our Stampin' Blends.  I used one of our retiring Metallic Foil Doilies and the cute little heart on the kangaroo pouch is from the Cookie Cutter Builder punch.

Leave me a comment and let me know which of the three notecards you like the best!  I will be holding a drawing from the comments to receive one of these notecards for FREE!
