Painted Petals Thank You Cards

Hi Friends! Quick post today - we've been dealing with snowstorms, power outages and sketchy internet connections. Another storm is on it's way on Wednesday, so there's no signs of Spring around these here parts, anytime soon.  There have also been lots of flooding in areas which of course all froze up last night, so areas of Nova Scotia are entombed in ice today. It's just a mess! I'm incredibly grateful I'm able to work my two businesses from home, but I need the internet for that, so suffice to say it's been challenging.  Here are some photos of our home and property:



A few days ago I made a whole whack of cards to send out to thank my customers for their orders, as well as some birthday cards for a couple of friends.  I was inspired by a technique that Shelli Gardner (our CEO and cofounder) demonstrated at the recent Leadership Conference. I tweaked it a little and I had a ton of fun making these cards...

I used (retired) Watercolour Note-cards that I cut up (as I am currently out of regular watercolour card stock) and used the Painted Petals stamp set.  I first misted the card stock with with water and once I inked my stamps I misted them too. Then I stamped on the card stock and let the inks bleed. Definitely a very forgiving technique as you want the images to be blurred. Once dry I adhered to a Crumb Cake card base and added the sentiment and a few pearls for fun.  I also stamped the envelopes to match.
