One Year Older Day Sketched Flowers

I like the previous card so much that I decided to to use the stamp set again. This time I stamped it in the corners with Simon Says Stamp Fog Ink and colored it with Copic Markers. I really didn’t like the way it was looking until I stamped it again with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. Love the pink and purple color scheme.

Get Well Soon Sketched Flowers

I had a friend who was recently diagnosed with a rare blood disease, the same that my father had. I wanted to send her a get well card of encouragement. I pulled out Simon Says Stamp’s Sketched Flower and stamped it with VersaMark Ink, heat embossed it with gold embossing powder, and colored it with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I fussy cut around one edge of the image, added to stick back foam to the back and placed it on a turquoise cardbase.

Black and White Masculine Hello

Once again I had some leftover patterned paper from a previous card and couldn’t let it go to waste. This time I decided to pair some black cardstock with the nearly white woodgrain. For the stips below I used a Pretty Pink Posh border die to add some visual interest. Added a hello die cut from some weathered wood cardstock and liked the way it turned out.

Masculine On the Edge Hello

I had some leftover patterned paper from the previous card and decided to use it for a masculine hello card. I paired it with some woodgrain cardstock. I decided to cut the hello word on the edge of some mirror cardstock and place it on the seam of the two patterned papers. It seemed off balance to me so I added some thin strips of the mirror cardstock and liked the results.

Beautiful Flower Hello

I was in need of a hello card to send to a new member of our ward at church and saw this leftover flowers from another project I had created and decided to put it to good use. I pulled out some patterned paper from My Mind’s Eye Heritage, cut it on the diagonal, and added the pretty flower at the intersection, which a die cut hello added in gold. Turned out pretty and required very little effort.

Pop of Red Hello

When I saw these two black and white patterned papers in the October Simon Says Stamp card kit I immediately wanted to pair them together. I decided to cut them using a rectangle die from My Favorite Things and then use a border die from Pretty Pink Posh to cut them on the diagonal. What is more striking on black and white than to add a pop of red. Love the way they turned out.

Love Always Happy Birthday Redo

Back in February I got the Simon Says Stamp Love Always Card Kit of the Month and created several cards. This one I did not publish because I hated the way it turned out. I used Gold Wink of Stella and it took away all the details of the stamp and muted the colors. When I was in need of a birthday card recently I saw this card again and decided to redo. I colored the flowers again with red Copic Markers and glued them right on top of the old. Now it’s a card I want to send to someone, rather than let it gather dust in my card box.
