May Your Sorrow…

… be eased by Wonderful Memories

Birthday-Blooms---Close-Up

I created this card for a friend of mine lost her brother in a fishing accident a couple of weeks ago.  They are not the best cards to create but we do have to do them sometimes.

I’ve used the new Stampin’ Blends – Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight & Old Olive to colour my flower & leaves.  The image is from the lovely Birthday Blooms Stamp Set.

The image has been stamped onto a piece of Whisper White CS in Memento Tuxedo Black, coloured with the Stampin’ Blends & layered to a piece of Basic Black CS before being adhered to the Base Card – Whisper White, which is in fact a Note Card.

The sentiment is from Better Together & has been stamped onto a scrap piece of Whisper White in Memento Tuxedo Black, punched either end with the Banner Triple Punch before being adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The card was completed by randomly adhering small Pearl Basic Jewels to the Card Front.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Just a Note…

G’Day Stampers,

Today, I am sharing with you another card that went in the mail last week celebrating World Card Making Day..  In fact I liked these so much that I actually created a couple of them which doesn’t happen very often.

I actually saw a card on Pinterest sometime ago similar to this one, but of course now I can’t find it.  If you recognise it, please let me know so that I can give you credit.  Thank you so much for your inspiration.

For my Base Card I’ve used the Note Card & Envelopes available in Whisper White & Very Vanilla.  Did you take advantage to purchase them when they were on special?  I know I did!

I die cut a piece of Whisper White CS using the Swirly Scribles Thinlits before adhering a piece of Window Sheet behind the top & bottom part of the card.  I then decided to add a piece of the Delightful Daisy DSP behind the see through section.  Once this was done, I then Inlaid the die shape back into the card & trimming the excess Window Sheet from the sides & bottom.

Just a Note… is from the set Better Together & was stamped on the top part of the Card in Night of Navy Ink as was the flower.  The leaf & flower are both from the  Daisy Delight Stamp Set & was stamped in Old Olive, stamping off once for the solid image prior to stamping the outline.

The whole piece was then layered onto a piece of Calypso Coral CS & then to the Base Card.

It’s a very simple little card but one I hope the receiver will like.October

All the Best

Heya Stampers,

Today I am sharing with you a card we created in our “Cards @ Toogoom” class last week.  I wanted to try & see if I could use the Embossing Paste a different way.  Seaside-Shore---close-up

When I started, I wasn’t too sure how it was going to turn out but after some trial & error I think I  am finally happy with the outcome.  I love it when I can get multiple uses from my craft supplies.  I call this “Painting with Embossing Paste” – is that such a thing?

I have used a couple of retired In ColoursLost Lagoon & Mint Macaron but you could easily create the same card using current colours.

My sentiment is from the “Better Together” Stamp Set which I masked off the bottom part with Sticky Tape, inked the top with Calypso Coral Ink, removed the mask & then stamped directly onto Whisper White Card.

The “frame” has been created by die cutting 2 different circles using the Layering Circles Framelits & running through the Big Shot.

Why not have ago at “painting” with your Embossing Paste.  I would love to see what you come up with.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
