Chinese Kids Thank You Card Set

Just posted this on the Island Scrapbooking blog, so I thought I'd also share it with you all. I bought these stamps by Hero Arts because they are so cute, but haven't used them till now. The great thing about sets is that they are meant to coordinate well, which takes the guess work out of making a set of cards. Here I used two of the sets of Chinese kids- one was a clear set and one a wood block set. Reminds me of Ni Hao Kai Lan- one of my daughter's favorite cartoons on Noggin.
Since I made a set of cards, I decided to go with a more simple approach. Each card was realtively quick to put together. I think the coloring took the longest for me since I'm still practicing my blending and shading techniques. I think my favorite out of these cards is the one at the top of this post!
Since this girl stamp was smaller, I decided to make three of them.
Here's the only boy of the set. Kept his card very simple.
I think I had the most difficult time with this one- couldn't think of how else to add to this card so I gave up.
After I was done with the cards, I made this cool A2 sized box. So easy and makes your cards look so much nicer!
