Thinking of You

Card for a friend of mine who is having a myriad of health issues. She is currently in a nursing home, so trying to raise her spirits. Taped the edges of the card stock to give the impression of a frame. Then I brushed Ranger Distress Oxide inks on the watercolor card stock and spritzed it with water. After it dried, I stamped it with Stampin’ Up Lovely as a Tree. Outside sentiment is from Gina Marie Stamps. Inside sentiments from Stampin’ Up Beautiful You (Life may not be the party we had hoped for, but while we’re here we might as well dance, and Wishing you brighter days to come).

Another encouragement card

Another encouragement/thinking of you card, using Stampin’ Up Colorful Seasons. Background was sponged using Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks. Sand was also sponged with Distress Oxide ink, on a separate piece of card stock and then torn to give the rough edge. Sentiment was heat embossed with bright white embossing powder.

While you are healing….

My card for a stroke survivor, who is also a crafter. The inside sentiment is “As you are healing, may you feel warmth and compassion from all who care about you. Best wishes that you will soon be back to doing all the things you love.
The marble paper and doily are from ms. sparkle & co. Flower is from SU Flowering Fields. Butterflies are Recollections punch.

Another encouragement card

Another encouragement card. Flowers made using die from Stampin’ Up Oh So Succulent. Leaf is My Favorite Things Flourish die. Bumblebee from Stampin’ Up Dragonfly Dreams. Sentiment from Stampin’ Up Lift Me Up. Stamped bee on regular card stock and on vellum. Hand cut the vellum version, so the wings would stay solid, and applied it to the card stock one.
