Sending You Strength and HUGS Sympathy Card - Die Impression Cut Out


Hello Friends,

I'm back today to share with you a sympathy card I made for my Sisters' friend, who recently lost her mother. Usually I like to make happy cards, so I find sympathy cards challenging to make. I wanted to make it clean and simple card and I'm really happy with how it turned out. I think I will have to make a few more like it to have on hand.

Sending You Strength and HUGS Sympathy Card - Die Impression Cut Out

To create the impression on the heart I taped the staked heart dies together and sandwiched the cardstock between the dies and an embossing pad. Doing this just presses the dies into the paper without cutting them leaving this beautiful impression on the cardstock. The I removed the center heart dies leaving only the large die ran that as I normally would to create a die cut.

For the Hugs die, I cut out 3 layers stacked and glued them together. I then used my versamark ink pad and added two layers of silver embossing powder and heat set them. The sentiment strip was created by combining a couple of sentiments from the Essential Sentiment Stamp Set. Not pictured here but the inside was finished with the "with sympathy" stamp.

DIY Slider Track Card ft. ME and Hampton Arts Reindeer Christmas Stamp set


Hello My Crafty Friends!

I'm back today to share with you this fun DIY Slider Track Card ft. Mama Elepahant and Hampton Arts Reindeer Christmas Stamp set that I found a Michael's! Such a cute set and I snagged the last one. YAY me! (I hope this set isn't too hard to find, but if it is you can find a similar set here).

As you can tell from the previous picture the Reindeer slides and rolls all the way down to the bottom of the card.

To color in these cuties I used Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens, and added detail and dimension with Nuvo Crystal drops. The tree was created by blending out distress oxide inks.
