Sweet Rose Sympathy

Hi, Beverly Jordan here today and am using Beautiful Bloom, Sweet Rose stamp set.
Don't you just love that big blossom!!! I used a Gina K die cut of Sympathy in white, overlaid to express the sentiment of the card.


 As for the details, this is actually a card I had made in the past that had no sentiment at all and then right at the time of us having Hurricne Irma, my girlfriend's father died at age 92!! He had had a rich, long life and it was truly a beautiful homecoming service. So I needed a card right away and used this one with the Sympathy laid over the beautiful rose. She loved it! Inside the card, I added "Sending Prayers" sentiment AND a NEW Bible verse that will be coming out this week in our newest stamp releases. Am so excited about this!! It is always nice to put a verse on the left inside page of my cards for a sweet message in addition to a sentiment. Hope you play along with us this week in our New Release Blog Hop. More information to follow!!!

Other Supplies: I kept it simple by using old papers found in my stash, Prima Marketing Sparkling Spring collection called Giselle; Pink Bazzill in 2 different pink shades, and white smooth paper; Memento Tuxedo Black ink stamped on Neenah Bright white; Copic Sketch markers:  RV04, RV11, RV21, YG06, YG93, YG 95,C01, C03, 0. Jullian Vance stitched rectangles;  Fiskars 12 trimmer with I blade; and of course, the Gina K die cut of Sympathy in this gorgeous cursive script.

Happy Birthday

Its Karen back with you today.  I'd like to share a softly coloured Happy Birthday card.  This card features the Beautiful Blooms - Hydrangea stamp set.  Its stamped in soft pink ink so the lines blend and fade with the colouring.  The look I was going for was like the image was behind vellum, soft and muted.

I coloured the flowers in pencil and shaded the pinks out with white to make them really soft.  In the centre of each flower is a small amount of green with white gel pen over the top.  This added a bit of interest and gave the flowers a little more life, otherwise they were a little flat.  The outside of the bloom is shaded in very soft grey blended out with white.  The leaves are done the same way with soft green, again blended out with white.

I used a piece of green cardstock on top of pink to bring the card together.  Final step was to stamp the sentiment in black to add a little drama to the card and draw the eye to the flower.  Finished off with a few sequins from the …

October Mood Board with LeeAnn

Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here today with my take on the Kennedy Grace Designs October Mood Board. If you are not familiar with mood boards they are great jumping points for a project, whether you use one of the images as the inspiration or the color palette alone. 

For my project today I decided to use the color palette, starting with the black and going from there. Using the Just A Rose Stamp Set, I stamped the Rose image using VersaMark clear ink, I then sprinkled Perfect Pearls in Copper over the image and brushed off any excess. I then fussy cut around the image to use it for my project.  I then prepared my layers for the card base. my main base is Kraft cardstock in a2 size. my next layer which is purple was trimmed to 4" x 5.25", and then the green trimmed to 3.75" x 5". I used Tear Tape to adhere the layers together as well as the rose. I used a piece of black cardstock to make a fish tail banner, I stamped the sentiment using Memento T…
