Encouragement card

This is a card that is quite different from the cards I usually do but the stamp set came in the last kit from Simon Says Stamp kit and I love it. Its a perfect time to send an encouragement card as so many of us are feeling the stress of what is going on in the world right now.

Here is the card:

This stamp set came in the last Simon Says Stamp kit. It isn’t something I would normally choose, but I love it. Thats the nice thing about kits, you sometimes get something you wouldn’t normally look for and it can expand your style.

This was a fairly simple card. I stamped the image and then colored it with alcohol markers. I cut the layers with Waffle Flowers A2 layer die set and framed them with black cardstock. I used some of the Whimsy stamp rainbow papers that were in the kit to add some color to the card.

For the sentiment I chose one from the stamp set that reads “After the storm comes the rainbow”. I stamped it on some black cardstock with versafine ink and used some of Simon Says Stamp fine detail white embossing powder and dried it with my heat gun.

I really like how it turned out.

Here are some of the supplies I used on this card:

St. Patrick’s Day card

It won’t be long until St. Patrick’s Day is here. It’s not a huge card giving day but since so many of us aren’t out and about visiting people like we used to, sending a card is a great way to keep in touch. My mother was born and raised in Ireland and I remember… Continue reading St. Patrick’s Day card

Lots going on…

It’s been quite a while since I’ve written here, sorry about that. There’s been so much going on I our lives that I just didn’t have the motivation. I will try to do better.
