Thoughts & Prayers Sympathy Card

Hello there, Just popping in today to share a card that I made with the Faithful Flutterings stamp set.  

Sympathy cards are by far the hardest to make, especially when you need one.  I suggest making a few of them when you DON'T need one and just keep them on hand.

The Faithful Flutterings is perfect for sympathy cards.  The images and sentiments are peaceful, calming and soothing, especially when stamped in the Spa Ink Collection by CP Designs.

Thanks so much for stopping in!  Have a good one!

Welcome Home Release Blog Hop

It's time for a new release over at Catherine Pooler Designs.  Today myself and some of my favorite designers are hoping along and sharing with you cards that we created using the new release products.

The Welcome Home release is just gorgeous.  It's full of line images that you can color to create beautiful garden scenes.  But if you are like me, and not so much into coloring, we have products for you too!

My first card uses The Strolling Borders stamp set and the Ways to Say Hey dies.

The Strolling Borders stamp set is perfect for creating stones pathways, but also wonderful for creating background.  Here I stamped it in Mint to Be and Aquatini inks and then added the Hey There sentiment strip in Midnight card stock.  

I really wanted that sentiment to pop and that contrast certainly does the trick!  This card is easy peasy and comes together quickly without a whole lot of fuss.

My next card features the Marble Swirl Background stamp.

I went with a neutral, monochromatic color combo of  Twilight and Black Jack.  You see three colors above because the Twilight was stamped off once for the lightest shade.  I can't wait to pair it with florals.  I think it will be a beautiful combo.

Time to hop along now.  Leave comments to be entered to win a $25 gift certificate!
