Todays cards are sympathy cards. I always try to have a few of these ready, usually when people (or I) need them it’s straight away, and if they are for myself the last thing I want to do is sit down and make one. For these two i used a sheet of 3d images that i picked up at the fair, cut out all the images and layered them up with foam pads. A sticker for the sentiment is all I added – less is more for sympathy cards.I am off to work to do a night shift – working nights all week this week so that will be a new experience for me! Til tomorrow….
A change of pace today with a couple of thinking of you cards made with kaisercraft ma Cherie paper collection. I fussy cut the flower sprays from a sheet of 12 x 12 paper, and the lovely embossed paper on the background id from the 6 ” pad, as is the greeting and butterfly.very similar cards – subtle differences – the background papers are two different papers, and the cardstock used are two different shades of grey. This morning I was digging through my graphic 45 paper looking for special papers to use for a village lesson,and I need a lot of the same paper as my ladies want to learn how to make a bendy card and graphic 45 is the only paper I have in large quantities – mainly because once home with it I find it very difficult to cut into – I love it that much!Going through it all Ideas were springing from everywhere – I will never have enough time to make everything I want to, but at least I have realised the time has come to use this paper!So any spare time this weekend will be spent with Graphic 45!Til tomorrow….
Todays’ card was one I taught over at the retirement village. I always keep sympathy cards simple. Stampin Up cardstock – white and bashful blue, and Stampin Up stamp set.I didn’t have a square stamp so I used a piece of foam offcut for the shape behind the flower. Quick post this morning, time for work…til tomorrow….
What a mixed bag of cards I have posted the last week or so! Today it’s sympathy cards.I always keep sympathy cards very simple, and these are no exception. I have used white card bases, and stamped my image on white card as well, coloured with copic markers and stuck on the card, and used border stickers around the outline.The stamp set is one I have had for a few years from Stampin Up called Eastern Influences.Today i have finally started my christmas cards, eased in slowly with some simple ones using dies,. Tomorrow Nathan and I will have a photo session and I will be able to start posting my most recent makes. til tomorrow….
Graphic 45 A ladies diary … this one is a sympathy card so I have kept it really simple, with just the image of the rose, and then used sticker borders around it. The cardstock is stampin up .This weekend I have made a start on Christmas cards. i always start with my christmas stamp sets, and then move on to last years left over papers, mainly because there are no paper collections around yet! The sneaky peeks I have seen are really not my style this year – not a vintage collection to be found, so at least this year my older papers will get used up.Til tomorrow…
Here is a very quick post as tea is cooking as we speak, luckily it’s a really quick and simple card tonight! The cardstock is Stampin Up and so are the stamps I used – Love and Sympathy set. I inked the stamps with Prima chalk inks,and added sticker borders to define the squares. In a rush… til tomorrow..
