Here are a couple of cards made in the last week or so. Needed both a sympathy and a get well card. This week I have been reorganizing my craft space (again) so have been busy, but not making cards.
First up is a card made for my brother in Florida who had surgery recently.
Next is a card that I made for the daughters of my good friend Carol who passed away unexpectedly. I've been so sad about this. Carol was just my age...way to young to go. Sigh.
This card was made with my NBUS goodie from Concord & 9th. I purchased the new complete Everyday Bouquet Turnabout Toolkit and this is the second try making a card. The leafy turnabout stamp was inked up in Altenew Cool Summer Night blue inks. There are four inks in nice blue colors and I used them all. I like doing the turnabout technique and can see doing it over and over. The stamping was done on a top folding A2 card of Papertrey Ink white cardstock that I use often. After it was done, I dry embossed just the card front with my trusty Swiss Dot folder by Cuttlebug. That was one of the first embossing folders I bought after getting the Cuttlebug machine. The centered white flower is made with a die that was a part of the kit too. I cut out several to add dimension. For the inside, I stamped the sentiment in the deepest blue shade. This wooden stamp is by Hero Arts from 2012. It is discontinued, but I did see it on eBay. I colored the flowers with my water pen dipped in the same blue inks from above.
Looking back at this post, I sure see a lot of the color blue. It really IS my favorite color!
Thanks for visiting. I sure appreciate all of you.
