Inspired Thank You's

Morning all :0)
I hope you had a good weekend and managed to dodge the storms!!! We were down in Witshire and had three inches of rain but arrived back in Cambridgeshire yesterday to 4mm!!! We should have collected some and bought it back with us for the garden... Lol :0)

Anyhow, onto my card today and it's a mad last minute rush for teacher Thank You cards but I found my inspiration on a recent shopping trip.....

and here's the notebook that gave me the idea....

Large Jotter Big Plans

I love stationary and these jotter pads by Happy Jackson appealed to me with there bright speech bubbles so I thought I'd use the inspiration. The white panels are cut and mounted onto a piece of black card before die-cutting the speech bubbles from the panel. I then cut the speech bubbles twice in the four different colours and white embossed Thank You sentiments from different stamp sets onto each colour before sticking two bubbles together for extra thickness. Then I simply glued the panel to a card base and placed the bubbles into the correct spaces and embellished with black stamped stars.
I just need to make two more now and find some suitable gifts before Wednesday.... talk about a last minute Lucy!!!
Here are the stamps I used, click on an image to take you to the store :0)

Hiya! I really like your thank you card, what white embossing powder do you use? Really struggling to get some!

Hi Zippy0710,
I use the WOW embossing powders and am very pleased with them...... This is the bright white which has great opaque coverage on this dark card using versamark ink :)
I hope that helps :)
