Thinking of You Reba

When I heard that my sweet little 91 year-old friend from the guy had a mild heart attack I went right home and created this card for her. I wanted her to know I was thinking of her and sending her prayers. I love these flowers from Altenew and the Mama Elephant Madison Avenue Frame makes a beautiful focal point. I stamped first in Ink On 3 Fade Out Ink, colored the images with Copic Markers, and then stamped again with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with silver embossing powder.

Sailing Into a Happy Birthday

I wanted to use up the oval of navy cardstock I had left over from another card I made and thought that it would be a great background for this ship from Stampin’ Up’s The Open Sea. I paired it with Altenew’s Dotted Scaled Debossing Plate because it looks a little bit like waves, but I wanted some added dimension, so I inked the plate with navy ink before running it through the Big Shot. I really like the distressed look that it gave to the background.

A Happy Birthday Journey

This stamp reminds me of the old Ford pickup I learned to drive in. How I remember those days of trying to get the timing right for the clutch and gas. A lot of jerky moves until I finally mastered the art. I wanted to use an Altenew Layered Plaid Background Die, but the white was just too stark and so I ink blended the background with some Blue Denim Ink and really liked the outcome.

Fall Leaves Gratitude

I love the quote by President Thomas S. Monson “To live with gratitude ever in our hearts is to touch heaven.” I think it is true. Life is sweeter when we look through the challenges and experiences of our lives with gratitude. What better time of year to count our blessings than in the fall, which is why I used fall leaves for embellishments.

I like it so much that I made it again adding a die cut “Thank You” from Karen Burniston.
