‘LOVELY AS A TREE’ SYMPATHY!

This is another card that we made at our stamping get together last week with Andrea and Leonie.  I am finally getting a chance to show you.  I don’t know where the time is going to this week!  Andrea bought a sample of this card along and we all wanted to make it.  I loved the masked edge to it. I’m not sure where it was CASED from.  I will have to check back with that.

ADDED: Andrea just let me know where this card was CASED from.  This is by Kim and can be found here.

The area was masked and then the tree from ‘Lovely as a Tree’ stamped several times.  Sometimes it was stamped and then stamped again to get a fainter second image.  Then the area was sponged with Old Olive.  The masks were removed.  I then added the greeting and some twine.  The button is a clear button (now retired) that I added some DSP to underneath, then cut around it.  I thought this would make a lovely sympathy card.

You can’t see from this but we added some Champagne shimmer paint to the stamp and then stamped it over the top to create some sparkle.  You can see it a bit here.

This is the inside of the card.  I stamped the trees along the lower edge and the message is from ‘Thoughts and Prayers’.

This card was very timely as 2 of my friends lost their Dad’s last week, so I created another one and sent them on their way.

You may have heard by now that the Stampin’ Up!  Convention is starting tomorrow.  Unfortunately I won’t be there, BUT I am getting together with THE bestest stamping buddies for a ‘Convention’ of our own.  Should be a blast.  Stop by soon and I will show you “some” of the things we get up to.

Thanks for stopping by.  See you again soon.

IN SYMPATHY…

Just a quick post as I am heading off to a funeral for my Uncle who recently passed away. It will be good to see family that I haven’t seen in over 10 years. It is just sad that it takes a funeral to do that.

I made a very quick card, nothing fancy.  This stamp is from the SU ‘Thoughts and Prayers’ set.  It has some beautiful word stamps that is just ideal for sympathy cards.  Sympathy cards can be hard to make sometimes!

Yvonnes Card 2_0002

Stamps: Thoughts and Prayers.

Card: Night of Navy, Creamy Caramel, Whisper White.  Urban Garden DSP.

Ink: Night of Navy, Creamy Caramel.

Other: Dimensionals, Wide oval and Large oval punch, sponge, paper piercer, stapler, Ribbon (non SU).

Unfortunately the paper piercing didn’t come out too well in the scan.  Sorry about that!  I thought I was a bit clever though. Since I didn’t have a creamy caramel inkpad to sponge around the edge of the oval  I drew on some acetate with my marker and then picked up the ink with my sponge that way.  It worked just as well!!!!

Thanks for Looking and have a good day!!
