Healing Hugs

Used the Dintinktive stamp set Healing Hugs to give depth and colour texture to the images for this card.  Both flowers were fussy cut out; one in Mango Melody and one in Terracotta Tile.  The leaves really show the Distinktive texture in Pretty Peacock.  The lighter leaf branches were stamped in Mint Macaron and then blended with the blender pen.

Using the Lace 3D background,  I placed my cut out images with dimensionals.  The greeting was stamped with Pretty Peacock ink onto Pool Party cardstock.

Flowers offering Comfort

I made this card to cheer up a friend.  For me the colours of the card had to be cheery,so I chose Grapefruit Grove for my card base.  I added a shade darker for the background of the flowers by using a piece of DSP that was a similar shade.  A piece of the Woven Threads DSP in the Terracotta Tile colour cut out with the Stitched Rectangle framelit to give texture with  the stitched edge.

The flowers and leaves were all stamped and then fussy cut with my snips.  The white berry branches are from the Flourish dies.  I stamped 3 different colours for the flower and cut one apart to add a different colour centre to one of the flowers.

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!
