Sweet Sympathy Card

Sympathy1

Who says sympathy cards have to be dark and dull?  We want to encourage people and brighten their day, don’t we?  Well this card will do just that.

Sympathy cu

The Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper is SO beautiful!  I just want to use it for everything!  For this card I put one sheet of 4″ x 5-1/4″ on my Whisper White card.  Then I used a coordinating sheet of dsp, cut it the same size, and then tore it in half lengthwise from corner to corner and glued it on the base.  These papers blend together so beautifully, don’t they?

Sympathy2

A bit of a Tea Lace Doily, a trio of little flowers and a sentiment finish off this sweet card.  Now, truthfully, you could use a birthday or get well or other sentiment on this card.  It’s really a simple card to make.

Today I had a card class and we made this card.  Some of the stampers suggested making several of these cards without a sentiment, and then when you need it, just pull out a card and attach the appropriate greeting!  Great idea!

STAMPIN’ UP! ITEMS YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE THIS CARD:

Stamp: Bloom with Hope Hostess Stamp Set
Ink:  Night of Navy Classic Stampin’ Pad
Paper: Whisper White and Daffodil Delight card stock; Painted Blooms dsp
Tools:  Petite Petals Punch, 1″ Square Punch
Embellishments:  Rhinestone Basic Jewels and Tea Lace Doilies

Pretty Card For a Friend

Trust1Today’s card was made for a friend who is going through a hard time.  I wanted to make her a pretty card with encouraging words.  This stamp is one of my favorite Scriptures, and appropriate for difficult situations.  The stamp set is called Trust God and has 7 great stamps!

TrustenviefrontI wanted to use lots of pretty things for this card, so I started with the gorgeous En Francais stamp as a background.  Squares Collection Framelits were used to create the polaroid-look frame and the Apothecary Accents Framelits were used for the shapes inside the frame.

Trustcu

The Primrose Petals and Blushing Bride card stock add a feminine touch to this card.  The Subtles Candy Dots fill that space at the bottom of the frame and add a little bit of interest!

Thank you for stopping by today!

Christmas Tri-Fold Card

CTriFold1

Wow, I made one tri-fold card a week or so ago, and it was so much fun!  So I made another one for my November stamp class, for everyone to make!  This one is especially fun because it’s a Christmas card.

CTriFoldFront

This is how the card looks closed, from the front.  The center panel and some of the flower petals are created with the very beautiful En Francais stamp, stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink on Very Vanilla card stock.  It looks just like a designer series paper, doesn’t it?

CTriFoldOut

Here’s the card totally spread out.  You can see all the panels here.  As I mentioned in my previous post, all the details and measurements to make this card are on a video by Catherine Pooler.  I just followed her directions and it came out beautifully.

Halloween Happiness

Haloween Happiness.1

This darling little card is one I made when I was over in Arizona stamping with the Pals.  Don’t you just love it?  The little pumpkins are so cute.  Do you see how they are popped up on dimensionals?

Haloween Hapiness.cu

The pumpkins and their stems are colored using Stampin’ Write Markers.  And the oval has added interest with the paper-pierced border.  The Calypso Coral Chevron Ribbon ties it all up perfectly.

Enjoy!

Candy Corn Card!

CandyCornLantern.shortHi Stampers!  How are you this Monday?  Today’s card is just plain fun!  I just found out how to make these cute little candy corns – aren’t they adorable?  They are easy to make too!  We made this card at my workshops over the weekend and I wanted to share it with you.

The candy corns are made using 3 circles of different sizes glued on top of one another.  I used my #2 Circles Die (it has 4 different sizes of circles on it), but you could also use 3 sizes of circle punches or the Circles Collection Framelits.  It doesn’t matter as long as you make three circles of different sizes.  For the three candy corn colors I used Tangerine Tango for the largest circle, Daffodil Delight for the middle circle, and Whisper White for the smallest circle.  Glue the circles on top of each other with Snail or another adhesive.  It ends up looking like a target, doesn’t it?  Here it is sitting on top of the #2 Circles Die:

CandyCorn.Insts

Then you just cut the circle like you would cut a pie.  I cut it in half and then in half again and so on until I got the size I wanted for candy corn.  Easy!  You can also put a little piece on the inside of the card just for fun 🙂

CandyCorn.inside Thanks for stopping by today!
