Simple Touch of Sympathy

Unfortunately, there are times in our lives that we need to make sympathy cards. I prefer floral cards with a small spot of color. I enjoy sponging color onto the wooden Touches of Nature Elements. Just make sure you protect your table. Use a scrap of paper and sponge onto the wooden piece while it’s laying on it. If you try to hold it while sponging, the ink will not cover it completely. This card also uses a couple retired products, but you can always substitute similar ribbon and Designer Series Paper.

Perfect Plum Painted Harvest

I can’t get enough of this Painted Harvest stamp set! It is so beyond versatile and I really like using them as my own “Designer Series Paper” for backgrounds. Since the last card I made using this set was super bright, I thought I’d tone it down a little and focus on purples. So happy with this!

Stamp and Ink Free Petal Garden, Part 6

Welcome to Part 6 of my Petal Garden cards.

Today we wrap up this stamp and ink free series with a big, bold rose from the Memories & More Card Pack. It’s a die cut sticker adhered to Pool Party Cardstock, which was die cut with the Layering Circles Framelits and a Calypso Coral scalloped circle from the same die set. I wanted a little bow, but didn’t want to wrap the Pool Party Solid Baker’s Twine around the whole card front. So, I made a quick quadruple looped bow and adhered it with a glue dot.

Stamp and Ink Free Petal Garden, Part 5

Welcome to Part 5 of my Petal Garden cards.

Today’s cards also feature cards with lovely sentiments front and center. Again, we have the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch on the first card, but only peeking out of the left side. It makes a nice accent. The second card has the sentiment popped up with the Pool Party Solid Baker’s Twine “anchoring” it to the top and bottom.

Today’s bold card shows off some fun ribbon wrapping. Old Olive’s demureness is the perfect accompaniment to the bold Calypso Coral. This is definitely a quick and easy card.

Stamp and Ink Free Petal Garden, Part 2

Welcome to Part 2 of my Petal Garden cards.

Today’s two cards feature Clear Wink of Stella on the roses. It goes on so easily with the brush tip and creates a beautifully subtle shimmer. The second card also features the new Decorative Ribbon Border Punch, which makes a bold, yet feminine side border. I love both of these cards!
