Birthday Thank Yous - KSS

Since I celebrated my birthday last week, I have the need for a pile of thank you cards. So today's two designs, which are sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps and which I created this morning, are both thank you designs - one for my female friends and one for my male friends.

Before I started work, I looked in on the Splitcoaststampers' Challenges of the day to see if I could kill two birds with one stone. Turns out I could. Technique Challenge 708 today was to make a beach scene. Those two words are like music to my ears : beach and scene. I decided that would be perfect for a masculine thank you so here is what I came up with.

KSS Stamp Sets used to create this scene include:

Color Recipe for the water:

Layer 2 - Stampin' Up Blueberry Bushel
Layer 1 - Memento Summer Sky

Color Recipe for the Lighthouse

Layer 4 - PTI Fine Linen
Layer 3 - Stampin' Up Soft Suede
Layer 2 - PTI Dark Chocolate
Layer 1 - Stampin' Up Early Espresso

The beach chair is a die from Impression Obsession.

Clean and Simple Challenge 499 is titled "Frame It." With the carnation, I felt it would made an excellent feminine thank you card.

KSS Stamp Sets used to create this scene include:

Color Recipe for the Flower

Layer 1 - Memento Lulu Lavender
Layer 2 - Stampin' Up Highland Heather
Layer 3 - Stampin' Up Lavender Lace
Layer 4 - Stampin' Up Gorgeous Grape

Color Recipe for the Stems

Layer 1 - Stampin' Up Granny Apple Green
Layer 2 - Stampin' Up Old Olive
Layer 3 - Stampin' Up Mossy Meadow
