Sincere Condolences

The Kindness and Compassion stamp set has been in my collection of stamp sets for a little while.  It has some of the nicest fonts with really caring sentiments to express sympathy and kindness to those in need.
I was asked to make a sympathy card and found this one in the Annual catalogue, very simple, but sending a message.  Here is my card that I cased from the pages of the catalogue.

The detail under the vellum and whisper white piece is a tone on tone stamping technique using the same colour ink as the cardstock.

Pigment Dandelion Wishes

I absolutely love the images in the Dandelion Wishes stamp set and using the emboss resist technique is so very attractive.  The image is stamped in versamark and then add white embossing powder,and heat set.  Then you add your colour over top of the image (you can use many different types of colour).
I used the Pigment Sprinkles from the Annual Catalogue in just 2 of the colours (Granny Apple Green and Bermuda Bay).  You will never get 2 cards to look the same as your colours will mix differently every time!

Get Well Healing Hugs

Time to use some of the stamp sets that haven't seen any ink for a while.  For this card I used the Healing Hugs stamp set and I cased a card from the Annual Catalogue. This is a Distinktive stamp that gives you varying gradients in the colour when to stamp onto your cardstock. Itt gives depth to your image.

I really loved the idea of the stitched square being the focal point on the front of the card.  The sentiment is masked off so that you only use the words "Get Well".

The butterfly is fussy cut from a piece of the Mosaic Mood DSP and attached with dimensionals.

It Starts with Art - Pacific Point

I made this card following a card sketch challenge that I found online.  I coloured the images with Stampin Write Markers (Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana,Crushed Curry).  The cordinating dies in this suite are so great for adding elements to this card.
