With Sympathy Cards

Hello again,

This is the first time I have made this type of card and I think they turned out very nice.  I used some really nice paper I found by one of my most fast becoming favorite supplier DCWV called The Natural Stack.  I fell in love with the neutral palette of this paper… for some strange reason I find it very “calming.”  The sentiment stamp I used was just a cheapie Kaisercraft stamp I picked up in the $1.50 bin.  I also heat embossed a floral flourish as a backdrop for a few prima flowers.  I think I have the same feddish as my sister Lisa for the prima flowers J LOL… I just need to learn to do them justice! 

 

Thanks for checking in.  I really appreciate you taking time out of your day to visit!

Happy New Year and wishing all the best for 2012!

New addition to my crafting studio

Happy New Years Eve everyone,

I have been busy over the holidays so I have not done any blogging in a while.  My husband got me some wall art for Christmas.  What do you think?

Stay tuned for some more posts today.

Hoping that everyone has a safe and Happy New Years!

Happy Holidays

I had a bit of time tonight so I wanted to try out a new die and the matching petite poinsettia stamp.  I liked the poinsettia so much I wanted it to be the focal point of the card.  I am pretty pleased with the outcome.  All in all it was a bit time consuming trying to match up the stamps with the die cuts but I think it was worth the effort.  The Happy Holiday stamp is from the Paper Company Studio called Snowflake.  I really like this stamp set I use it a lot.  I added some snowflakes as well to the background with whatelse, heat embossing.  I given the heat embossing a bit of a break but I’m back at it (lol).

I also think my dear husband has figured out how I can take a better picture but it is still not a 100% and we will keep trying to improve the picture quality.  Thanks for checking in and see you again soon.
