With Deepest Sympathy

Hello stampers,
     I to make a sympathy card for a friend & wanted to wait to share it for a few days so hopefully she would receive it before I shared.
     I found a card on the internet that made a card using brown tones that I loved, but I couldn't duplicate the colors to make me like it in person, so instead I went the grays & black route.  I started with Whisper White Cardstock as my stamping platform then using the Beautiful Friendship Stamp Set I stamped the main flowers & the springs using Gray Granite Ink, then followed with the other flowers & leaves using Memento Black Ink. The sentiment came from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set & was also stamped in Memento Black Ink. After finishing stamping, I then backed it with Basic Black Cardstock & then layered onto Whisper White Cardstock base to finish the card.

Happy Graduation!

Hello stampers,
     Today's been a difficult day for me as I lost my dad 10 months ago, so this was another first without him & it seemed a bit strange. I really haven't stamped a lot since his passing & when I have it's been a lot of CASEing none of my original ideas. While I wasn't able to make a card for my FIL I have managed to get 2 cards done.
     Today's card was for a graduation of a kid I've known for 10 years. This was a simple card to make I used her school colors which I figured were Basic Black & Real Red. I used the retired Large Letter Alphabet Dies to cut out the letters from her school out of Real Red Cardstock, placing the cut out piece over Basic Black Cardstock. Once I assembled the card I propped up each letter using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. I had to figure out how to make either a diploma (which failed) or grad hat since all my retired stamps are still boxed up. I ended finding a great video online, however, I didn't save it before writing up this post. It's been a long time since I have done punch art & the punch I used is the Tailored Tag Punch. I really hope she likes the card!

Happy Mother's Day!

Hello stampers,
     Well, lookie here I actually stamped a card! Yes, it's been a while since I put ink to paper I just haven't had any mojo to do anything. But, I was happy to at least get a card made for my mom!
     I started the card with a Mango Melody Cardstock base. I then used the Beautiful Friendship Stamp Set using Mango Melody, Balmy Blue & Granny Apple Green Ink to stamp the flowers on Whisper White Cardstock, which I then backed with a Granny Apple Green Cardstock. For the sentiment, I used Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set using Memento Black Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock, then cutting it using Stitched So Sweetly Dies & popped them up with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.

Smitten With You

Hello stampers,
    Today's card is the card I made for my husband for Valentine's Day. I hope he likes it!
     For the card, I used Whisper White Cardstock for the base followed by the Sampler DSP  Pack that you can earn when you purchase a kit during Sale-A-Bration. All things stamped are from the MFT stamp set Smitten Kittens using Memento Black Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, which were colored using Light Poppy Parade, Lt/Dk Pumpkin Pie, ret Lt. Pink Pirouette, Lt. Gray Granite, Lt. Smoky Slate, & Lt. Soft Suede Stampin' Blends. The stamped piece was then mounted on Basic Black Cardstock before putting the card together.

Tropical Birthday

Hello stampers,
     I practiced a bit more with the Stampin' Blends for today's card which I sent out for a recent birthday.
     For this card, I used a new set from the Occasions Catalog called Timeless Tropical. For the flower & leaves, I stamped using Memento Black Ink, then colored in using Lt. Mango Melody, Lt./Dk. Pumpkin Pie & Lt./Dk Old Olive Stampin' Blends then die cut them using the In the Tropics Dies. Next, I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies to die cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock & Pumpkin Pie Cardstock (this I then dry embossed using the Coastal Weave 3DEF.) On the Whisper White Cardstock I stamped one of the sentiments from the set using Old Olive Ink. I then assembled the card attaching & layering everything to a Mango Melody Cardstock base except the flower which I used Stampin' Dimensionals to pop up on the card.
