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:

Busy, busy…

How are you? We have been enjoying unseasonably mild weather for January, but it looks like all of that is going to change this weekend with snow on the way. I’ve been so busy with my Etsy shop, mostly with paper hearts. Lots and lots of people have been ordering, which is great, but I… Continue reading Busy, busy…

January blues.

Happy New Year!

I’ve been horrible at updating my blog lately so I’m hoping that now that the holidays have passed, I can get into a better routine. How were your holidays? We had a very quiet, but nice time.
