Thanks - A Bunch!

A couple of weeks ago, I was surfing or Blurfing as some call it! I stumbled upon a company called Green Grass Stamps! Well, after emailing the company with some questions, Tammy, the company's owner sent me this darling set of Thank You stamps! Guess what? She said for me to keep one and then give away one..... TO YOU! Wasn't that sweet?

This card is as easy as it gets and, I think, makes a card full of sunshine! I stamped the word Thanks in green pigment ink and then attached a sequin flower with a rhinestone to the top of the "k." I wanted it to look like the flower was just sprouting from the Thanks! There is another stamp that reads special thanks that has that little leaf. I stamped that as well, but only used the leaf so that my flower would have this little embellie to it.

There is also a really neat scallop stamp that is a part of the set that I stamped in hot pink, cut out and then using different size hole punches, punched out that part of the stamped image. You can see what I am talking about if you scroll down and look at the image itself. The rest is just decorative paper and ribbon!

Here's a close up....

Here's what the entire set looks like. Isn't this awesome? 10 different stamps in all!
Do you want one? Just leave a comment and I will draw a name next Sunday! Good luck and have a happy start to your week!

My kind of quick card that has simple, delightful detail, happy colors and will bring smiles to faces and hearts, too! Great work, Julie -- you used the stamps in the set very well. What a kindness from Green Grass and from you! You have a big heart and that is a special gift in itself. Thank you for sharing! If blessed with this set, I would love to make a card for you!

I love that it has the Thanks in Spanish as well! OHHHH MYYYY! Do they have other stamps like this one? what is their address? I would love to find a stamps store with words in Spanish.

Excellent cards btw! Loved the chicken one! And I know what you mean about cutting the hair. I might do that as well with some other stamps I own. Stamp part directly to the paper where I want to put it and then stamp the image in white cs. Great idea! Thanks for sharing!

The card is so cute. Such pretty bright colors. I'm personally trying to get out of my muted color safe space and use my color wheel more to find fun combinations.

The stamp set is also very cute. What a lovely thing for Green Grass Stamps to do for your blog readers.
