Bridal Shower Card

Hi Everyone!
It's been a busy day here.  I have a friend who requested a bridal shower card, a friend who requested 5 valentine cards, and another friend who wanted some thank you cards.  So in between laundry, cleaning, and prepping next week's workshops I made some cards. 

I used an umbrella from Lawn Fawn's "Partly Cloudy" clear stamp set for this bridal shower card and gift tag.  After I stamped the umbrella and the text I ran the white tag through a Cuttlebug Hearts embossing folder.  The text was created with a clear stamp from Hero Art's "Best Wishes" set.  The tiny hearts on the card and tag are "scrap hearts" that come from a Martha Stewart's hearts edger punch.  There are tiny white pearl embellishments on the umbrellas. 

I made a variety of thank you cards.  These cards were made with paper from Cosmo Cricket's Material Girl block.  I stamped a spool of thread from PaperTrey Ink's "Quilter's Sampler" set on the first card and a pincushion from Hero Art's "Sew Artsy" clear set on the second one.  The "Sew Much"  text stamp is from Stampabilities.

Here's one of the valentines that I made.  I used Hearts Nestabilities to cut out the 2 hearts, a Martha Stewart edger punch on the layering paper.  The love birds and the text were stamped with A Muse Artstamps.   The  branch is from the Hero Arts "Trees, Birds & Messages" clear stamp set. 

Have a great night!

I like the shower card. I love pink. :) I also like the cards with the Cosmo Cricket paper. I have that set, too.

I just ordered/received 2 more stamp sets. One is a "thank you" set and the other leaves. Both were on sale. What's your favorite general sayings stamp set?

Hi Cindy!
My favorite general sayings set is a set of clear stamps from Hero Arts called "Everyday Sayings." That set has pretty much every message we could want. But as I have told you I really prefer wooden stamps so I have pretty much built my own wooden stamp set of general sayings. When I bought for example "Thanks a bunch" I bought 3 different stamps with that message. Each has a different font and is arranged in a slightly different way. As I sit here looking at my wooden stamps I see 3 that say "Make a wish", 4 that say "Happy Mother's Day" etc.
