The Friday Mashup # 31 and Card Patterns # 139

I think I am almost down to the wire for one of these challenges so this post will be short and to the point :). I thought I would combine two challenges today The Friday Mashup # 31 and Card Patterns # 139.

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :
  1. Make a project featuring "Heat Embossing".
  2. Or Make a "Thank You (Greatful)" project.  
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Thank You project with Heat Embossing".
The Sketch for Card Patterns:

I can always use a Thank you card, with my Birthday on the horizon I will definitely be sending out a few Thank you cards.

It took me a while but I have worked up a nice supply of Thank you stamps, I like how I was able to string these ones together. I love this Designer Paper and I wish I have more then one sheet. The buttons are just small circles punched out with holes added, I heat embossed them with Ranger Antiquities Frosted Glass embossing powder.

Supplies: Natural white and gray cardstock, Designer Paper - My Mind's Eye, Inkadinkado-Thank you Words, Fiskars-So Much Thanks, misc circle punches, Ranger Embossing Powder, misc ribbon.



  1. Hi Sis,

    Someone will want to do something nice for you just because you make such fabulous Thank You cards.

    This is a perfect sketch for your creation, I love how you use the buttons. The designer paper looks like little explosions of happiness. I will keep my eyes peeled if I ever see it.

    Love you,
