Praying for You

I needed a quick masculine get well card, so I turned to the faux wood burning technique using Stampin’ Up Nature’s Beauty. The sentiment is from Stampin’ Up Thoughts and Prayers. The picture does not do the technique justice, as it really looks like wood burning.

Hello Sunshine

Encouragement card created with Stampin’ Up Celebrate Sunflower (available in June) and Stampin’ Up Best Bird. The sunflower, leaves and bee was stamped and cut out after coloring with copics. I also stamped the sunflower and some leaves on the first layer to add to the dimension. I adhered the cut out flower, leaves and bee with dimensionals. You cannot see it in the picture, but I added clear Wink of Stella to the wings of the bee to give it a little shimmer.

Sending hugs & prayers

Thinking of you card created with Stampin’ Up Ornate Style (daisies) and Stampin’ Up Inspiring Iris (iris and carnations) stamp sets. The flowers were stamped and/or colored with copics, then fussy cut before being adhered to a layer that was created with brusho crystals. The sentiment, which was from the Inspiring Iris set, was free cut before being adhered with dimensionals.

More Faux Wood Burning

I decided to do two more “faux wood burning” cards today. The first one is using Stampin’ Up Celebrate Sunflower stamp, which will be available in June. For the second card I used the retiring Stampin’ Up Accented Blooms stamp. Both cards were created on watercolor card stock. The faux wood burning technique uses Stampin’ Up Early Expresso ink and to create the wood look, it is embossed with the Wood Plank embossing folder.

Resilient, Strong & Beautiful

My final encouragement card of the weekend. This card was cas’d from A Stamp Above. It was created with Stampin’ Up Strong and Beautiful and Thoughtful Blooms stamp sets. In addition, I used the small bloom punch, flowering foils that I colored with copic markers, layering circle dies and Martha Stewart large leaf punch.
