Thoughts & Prayers

I just got my new stamp set (like I need another one!)  and have been playing around with it.  I love this set.  It is great for sympathy and get well cards.  The flowers and trees would work well on any type of card.  Here are a few of the cards I made.

I was inspired to make this card from one I found on Splitcoaststampers.  (Where I spend way to much time!)Check out Gretchen's blog to see the wonderful card she made!



I colored directly on the flower stamp using Stampin' Write Markers. I then stamped it on Whisper White card stock that I cut out using the Sizzix Big Shot Top Note die cut.  The butterfly was also cut out with the Big Shot.  I tied a piece of hemp twine around the butterfly to give it a body and antennae.  It's adhered to the card with a mini glue dot.  I used the Watercolor Vine wheel, with the Versamarker pad, on the Kiwi Kiss layer to add a little texture to that layer.  For the ribbon I punched twice with the horizontal slot punch and then tied the ribbon with more Hemp Twine.  This card measures 5" x 5"

Stamps:  Thoughts and Prayers, Watercolor Vine jumbo Wheel

Paper:  Rose Red, Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip, and Whisper White cardstock.  Raspberry Tart Designer Series paper

Ink:  Chocolate Chip Classic ink pad, Rose Red, Pretty in Pink, Old Olive & Chocolate Chip Stampin' Write Markers.

Accessories:  Hemp Twine, 1" Double Stitched Chocolate Chip grosgrain, Top Note & Butterfly die cuts, Horizontal Slot punch.



I was inspired by Christine's card which you can see here.  If it weren't for all the wonderfully creative people out there I wouldn't be able to create half the cards I do! icon_biggrin

This is a real simple card yet very elegant and soft.  I stamped the tree in Whisper White Craft ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  Then I sponged it with Mellow Moss.  I stamped the sentiment and added ribbon.  And its done!

Ink:  Whisper White craft ink, Mellow Moss classic ink

Paper:  Whisper White card stock

Accessories:  White embossing powder, Mellow Moss Taffeta ribbon, and Hodgepodge silver ribbon slide



Here is my creation!  I stamped Whisper White craft ink on a Kraft card stock base.  The folded side is punched with the slot punch to allow the ribbon through from the inside.  The top is pierced in the corners to add a little interest.  I heat embossed the sentiment to make it stand out more.

Ink:  Whisper White Craft ink
