Creative Confetti - Thank You

I don't know where Julie gets her ideas for these challenges, but they are very inspiring for me. Some more than others.  Like this one. For this week, we are to create a thank you card that can be mass produced.  I could have gone with an easier design, but that is not my style. If I am going to send out a card, it has to be right.  I have my standards.  Lol

I thought that I would look for a stamp set that I had the matching die so that I could just color and die cut the image and that is how these cards started.  I picked out the Natural Beauties Stamp and matching die. I die cut the image first out of leftover cardstock.  I used that as a template. After stamping my images I placed the template over them and insert the die.  That makes it quick and easy to get a near perfect die cut.  Next, I picked out several different cardstock colors and design papers.  I got them all ready to put together. 
Now the fun comes in. I love to color and so for me, it is relaxing and the special touch that I like to add to my cards.  Ok, enough talking, here is what I did.

I mass produced four thank you cards in one afternoon.  
My goal was to try to make them look different. 

 For this card, I added a die called Fishtail banner from Cheery Lyn Dies. 

 This image looks like there is a lot of coloring, but the flowers are little and color up quickly.  I only used two or three copics markers in the same color family.  To make things go faster, I did all of the same colors on each of the borders at the same time. You know, all of the yellows, greens etc.
 For this one, I really changed it up as I was inspired by the design paper that I used and so I only used browns and got a more vintage look. 

This stamp lends itself to a horizontal view, but it can be used for portrait view too. Here they are all together.  This was a fun challenge and now I have a nice stash of Thank You cards. 

Thanks for stopping by each week as I post, and taking time to leave a comment.  
Please know that I do appreciate them.
