Colorful Card Set (and a Giveaway!)

Hello and welcome. Today I have a colorful card set share....
I started off with creating the blue card in a monochromatic color scheme and I liked it so much that I decided to expand it to more colors and create a set. It was very simple to create these cards. 

I started off using the sentiment from THIS fun set and stamped it in different distress inks in the same color family....
So for this red card I stamped the sentiment on an angle down the center of the card using Worn Lipstick, Festive Berries, and Fired Brick Distress Inks. I kept stamping in that pattern until I reached the edge of the card and then spritzed each one with water to achieve a watercolor look. Once it was dry, I went back and stamped each "thanks" with black ink to make it pop. Then I die cut THIS label die from the middle sentiment and then adhered the piece back in place with some dimensional adhesive. I also added two epoxy dots to draw attention to the die-cut greeting and rounded the bottom corners with a corner rounder. All the panels were adhered to Hero Arts note cards. I did the same process with the following cards, just different colors...
 I used Wild Honey, Scattered Straw, and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks for the yellow card. 
 I used Dusty Concord and Seedless Preserves for the purple card. 
 I used Bundled Sage, Evergreen Bough, and Shabby Shutters for the green card. 
 I used Peacock Feathers, Faded Jeans, and Tumbled Glass for the blue card. 

I wanted to pop up that center greeting so the color of the card shows underneath...

  2. these are lovely and fun too--my fave is probably the blue, but I'm loving how the green turned out too. Actually, they make a fabulous set. This would make a great teacher gift, since they have to send a lot of thank yous.
