Happy New Year!!


Hey,

Happy New Year everyone and welcome to 2015.

Hope you all welcomed in the new year with fun things...this is a scheduled post, so I can't tell you how my new years eve went yet :)

As you know I love a Thank You set and I like to make sets for my personal thank you's.

For Christmas 2015 I decided to use some of my new stash - postage style square dies and leaf stamps - both of which were $20 challenge gifts from JT.

I used green card for my die-cut squares and then I stamped one of the lovely inkadinkadoo leaf stamps slightly off the edge in a contrasting green ink. I used a fave Thank You stamp for the sentiment in the same colour ink.

I then attached the die-cut squares to small 3x3 cards using my American Crafts mini stapler (like a mini attacher). For a final touch I added a contrasting green pearl

Simple and pretty too :)

They feel like little pieces of patchwork or quilting..
