Thank You Cards with a House Theme

Thank You Cards with a House Theme

One of times I was shopping at Craft Warehouse in Gresham, OR last year, I came across some adorable coordinating paper by American Crafts.  I sell houses for a living (well, I like to say I enjoy connecting sellers with buyers), so I am attracted to house themed stamps, paper, ribbon, candle holders, etc.  I had a need to thank several friends, so I was happy to find that these papers worked well together.  I used heavy paper tape I found at Hobby Lobby in Fort Collins, CO; wrote “THANK YOU” with a sparkly Copic AtYou Spica marker; used my favorite Modern Label punch from Stampin’ Up!, and some various eyelets from my stash.
I ran out of the one sheet of 12″ x 12″ floral background paper, so that gave me an excuse to make a few different house themed thank you cards with some other fun paper from DCWV and Basic Grey.
Here is a close-up of one of the cards.

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
