With Sympathy

Some friends of mine lost their mother earlier this week, so I spent some time making their sympathy cards. The first card was created using Stampin’ Up Dear Doily. The second card was created using Stampin’ Up Graceful Glass designer series paper, which I colored with copics.

Enjoy Your Day

Masculine birthday card created using Stampin’ Up Badges and Banners. Stamped white cardstock with the Enjoy Your Day stamp, then covered it with a piece of vellum. I stamped another Enjoy Your Day, which was punched with the badge punch and adhered with dimensionals.

Dancing in the rain

Interactive shaker encouragement card. I brushed the background using distress oxide ink. Next, I stamped a figure from Stampin’ Up Beautiful You, which I colored with copic markers and then fussy cut out. The umbrella is from Altenew Dancing in the Rain. The top layer, which was stamped with a sentiment from the same Altenew set, was also brushed with distress oxide inks to match the background. Next, I attached 11 lines of clear filament cord along the back top of the top layer. I added 20 crystal seed beads (size 11/0). After adding the beads to a cord, I then secured the cord at the bottom back of the top layer. Once all cords had the beads added and attached to the back, I added Stampin’ Up foam adhesive strips to secure the top layer to the background layer.

I’m Here For You

Case’d Brian King for this encouragement card for my friend going through cancer treatment. The outside of the card was created using Stampin’ Up Blossoming Basket stamp set for the basket and sentiment. The basket was stamped and colored with copics before fussy cutting it out. The sentiment was stamped and then run through the SU Subtle embossing folder. These were adhered to a layer that had been run through with the SU Basket Weave embossing folder.

The inside of the card was created using SU Artfully Aware stamp for the people and sentiment. The people were also colored using copics.

To Each His Own

Birthday card for an extended family member, using My Favorite Things Turntable dies. The inside of the card shows different things that happened on his birthday over the years. (I hid his last name for privacy purposes). To give the record the shiny look, I covered it with Versamark and then heat embossed using clear embossing powder. I repeated this twice.
