Country Home Sympathy Card

Country Home Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Why are sympathy cards so hard to make?  Should they be sad or should they be cheerful?  Maybe we just over think it.  The important thing is to send a card and say that you care.  Today's Sympathy Card was made with the Country Home and the Better together stamp sets with just a hint of the Buffalo Check stamp set peeking from behind.

I must say that I experienced immense pleasure every time, I color images from the Country Home stamp set.  Love the whole farmhouse feel.  I especially like the way my pitcher turned out.  I colored it with a mixture of Night of Navy, Smoky Slate and Cajun Craze Stampin' Blends to give it a rusty, dusty look.  For the bouquet, I used Old Olive, Granny Apple Green, Soft Suede, Blackberry Bliss and Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends.  All Stampin' Blends are available here.

For my sentiment, I stamped it with Versamark ink onto Vellum Card Stock and heat embossed it with Gold embossing Powder.  Then, I cut a second gold foil oval to highlight the gold.  The crisp white embossed background was accomplished with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder.  And I must say, the dynamic impression embossing folders really do leave quite an impression.  Just look at that lovely background!

Something Old, Something New

Buffalo Check Get Well Card

Hello Friends,

For whatever reason, we have had a rash of family and friends either sick of injured lately.  Sadly, I have needed a pile of Get Well Cards.  Today's Get Well Card was made with my Sister-In-Law in mind.  She loves sunflowers, plus Sunflowers say end of summer hello fall so well.


Buffalo Check Stampin' Up!

As I was making today's card, I couldn't help but think of the poem Something Old, Something New.  I know that its an old Wedding poem, but it seemed to fit today's card so well.  Here's my thought process.

Something Old, Something New

Something Old,

Something New,

Something Borrowed,

Something Blue.

Something Old-The Painted Harvest stamp set with its gorgeous sunflowers is an old favorite from last year's Holiday Catalog.

Something New-Today's card also has some of my new favorites from this year's Holiday Catalog.  Can you find them?  The Buffalo Check Stamp, the Corrugated Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder and the Chicken Wire Elements all look like they were made for each other.  Can you say Country Farmhouse?

Something Borrowed-I may be stretching the meaning just a bit, but I borrowed my greeting from another stamp set called Healing Hugs.

Something Blue-Who doesn't love Coastal Cabana?  I'm so happy that Stampin' Up! brought this gorgeous, happy blue back with this year's color refresh!

Here's my number one tip for getting great ink coverage with the Buffalo Check stamp set.  Use your Stamparatus.  It's for stamping multiple times with having to line up your stamp over and over again.  It took me 3 times to get the look that I wanted, but it was so easy to do with the Stamparatus.

Times are changing.  I used to loath fussy cutting, but these days I find it therapeutic.  I fussy cut both the sunflowers and the "well" in Get Well Soon to make it pop.

Healing Hugs Z Fold Card


Healing Hugs Stampin' Up!

 Hello Friends,

Yesterday,  I received word that a dear friend was hospitalized.   So I naturally needed to send Get Well Wishes with a hand stamped card.  The Healing Hugs stamp set makes gorgeous Get Well Cards and a Z Fold Card is unexpected and simple to make.

 

How to Make a Z Fold Card

Cut a card base 4-1/4" by 11".

Score at 2-3/4" and 5-1/2".

 

Healing Hugs Stampin' Up!

I inked my rose with Pineapple Punch and Flirty Flamingo Inks using sponge daubers to apply the ink for a gorgeous two-toned rose.  The quilted insert was first stamped with Old Olive Ink and then embossed with the Tufted Textured Impressions Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder.

 I outlined leaves on the center portion of the Z for added interest.
