With Sympathy


Hello Peeps!!

Today I am sharing a card made with the challenge this week at 





I started out by stamping my daffodils onto some thick
whisper white card stock with black stazon ink. 

I colored with my aqua painter and ink pads. 
I used Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Pear Pizzazz and Soft Sky inks.


The daffodils are a stamp in the You're Inspiring stamp set.

The sentiment comes from the SAB Lasting Lily stamp set.

I smeared a bit of ink on my piece and ended up having to cut down my front and 
add it to a new base piece. Always happens when I am trying to do a no layer card. 


I finished it up with a few yellow sequins from the Gingham Gala Sequin pack.

Thanks for coming by.

Sending Healing Vibes


Happy Friday Peeps!!

My card today features the sketch this week at


A dear friend who was recently diagnosed with cancer has been struggling and she 
has a tough road ahead, so I want to try to lift her spirits with some cards.
If you would like to send one to her too, I know she would love it. Message or email me for her address.

I pulled out my Healing Hugs stamp set for my card.


I stamped two flowers using Calypso Coral ink and fussy cut them out.
I stamped the leaves using Old Olive ink and cut them out as well.

The base of the card is thick whisper white and then a layer of Sahara Sand.
I then used another piece of white and embossed it with the Tufted EF.

 

I added a strip of DSP across the middle and mounted my 
flowers behind and in front of the DSP.

The sentiment is from the same set and was a bit too long to tuck under the edge of my 
flower so I had to lay it across the top.

I added a few rhinestones to finish it up.
I hope this card will brighten her day just a little.

Thanks for coming by.

C4C Happy Birthday


 Happy Monday Peeps!!!

Today I have a fun card to share using the challenge this week at 

They are asking for us to use a flower or flowers on our card.

I have been wanting to use the Happy Birthday Thinlit for awhile now.
Truth be told, I have had it for months and have never even opened it til now.
I die cut it four times with whisper white card stock and layered and glued them all together.


I then stamped and colored a few flowers from the Tea Together set.
I used Highland Heather and Flirty Flamingo inks along with Granny Apple Green.
I then die cut out the flowers using the matching dies. 
I set these aside to build my card.


The base of my card is Highland Heather and then a layer of white.
The DSP is from the Needlepoint Nook pack.
I cut another piece of Highland Heather to use atop of the DSP. I hand cut the bottom in a banner shape and then embossed with the Basket Weave EF.

I glued my Happy Birthday die to the banner piece and then added the flowers to the card with dimensionals.
I used my Wink of Stella pen all over my flowers. I love the shimmer that adds.

Happy Anniversary

I am using the great Bloom by Bloom stamp set. I love these small flowers.

I stamped a few in Flirty Flamingo and Lovely Lipstick.

I used Granny Apple Green for them.



 I used another stamp in the Bloom by Bloom set for the small Daffodil Delight dots.

The sentiment is from the Beautiful Bouquet set.
I stamped it with Black Memento Ink.





I had planned on making a single layer card but, as usual, I smeared a bit of ink while stamping my flowers so I trimmed down the panel and mated it with a piece of Flirty Flamingo card stock.


I added this to a thick Whisper White base.
I finished with a few sequins from the Gingham Gala Sequins pack.
