Don’t you just love Dragonflies? I really like how this sympathy card turned out. I heat embossed the dragonfly from Visible Images “Live in the Moment” stamp set on a gel press print and added a Rubbernecker Three Line Frame border.
My sister-in-law loves dragonflies too so I made this card for her birthday this month. I ink blended my background and then heat embossed the dragonflies and sentiment.
I had a strip of background left over so I made a third card…I love bonus cards!
Hello and Welcome! This week we are creating Masculine Cards at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge and Heidi is our hostess. I\’ve been on an alcohol ink/Yupo paper roll and thought I would do a masculine sympathy card. I love the unpredictability of alcohol inks but I wanted to create a sunset background where the sun was setting over trees and a lake. I like the end result. The tree is a die from Simon Says Stamp. The sentiment is my favorite for sympathy cards: My Sentiments Exactly – Sympathy. I am entering my card in: UPDATE: My card was selected as \”Featured Artist\” for the As You See It Challenge. As You See It\’s \”Trees\” Challenge Clean and Simple \”Masculine\” challenge Thank you for stopping by! Karen
First I created an alcohol ink panel on Yupo paper. I was going for a sunset background and I really like how the panel turned out. Next, I used Simon Says Stamps Tree Frame die for the cover. I stamped my sentiment (My Sentiments Exactly) and was done. I am so pleased you stopped by! Karen
Hello and welcome! I was in need of some sympathy cards and I thought it might be nice to create a little scene using the bench from a stamp and die set (WPlus9 New Home) that just arrived in the mail.
I wanted to pair it with two of my go-to stamp and die sets: Altenew Garden Grow and Hero Arts January 2019 My Monthly Hero. I started by stamping a background using SSS Sketchy Lines Background Stamp. From black cardstock, I die cut the sentiment (SSS) twice and then glued together. I Copic colored the potted plants, then die cut, assembled and adhered to the background using foam tape.
Hello and thank your stopping by! The theme this month at The Twofer Challenge is \”Garden\”. I doubled up on the garden theme by using botanical stamps and dies and secondly, by dry-embossing using a stencil called Garden Leaves (Dylusions). Fun fact…this was the first stencil I ever purchased.
The sympathy card is more subdued with just one image combined with the dry embossed stitched accent panel. When I made the card, the blue violet flower reminded me of a button or decorative snap. I am entering this card in Clean and Simple on Friday\’s \”Use a Stencil\” Challenge I used the Dylusions Garden Leaves stencil to dry emboss an accent panel.
The second card is a bright vibrant birthday card with multiple images and texture. I am entering this card in The Dies R Us \”Birthday\” Challenge I used WPlus9 Doodle Bud dies and MFT A2 Stitched Rectangle die for the accent panel.
