By the Tide Sympathy Card

Hello,

This month at club we focused on making some Sympathy cards. I find these cards hard to make and it's easier to have on hand for when you need them. I was searching for some inspiration and I came across this card on Pinterest. I really liked it so much that I decided to CASE It.

I love how we used the By the Tide stamp set to create this beautiful card!!

Stamp: By the Tide and Love and Sympathy

Ink: Midnight Muse, and Crumb Cake

Card Stock: Crumb Cake, Midnight Muse and Very Vanilla

Accessories: Twine, and Versamark Ink

It's hard to tell from the picture, but I used the saying image and versamark ink and stamp it 4 times along the bottom of the card. Then we ripped the Very Vanilla piece of card stock so you could see the saying underneath it!!

Thinking of You Card

Happy Friday,

I still have a few hours to say that! LOL It's been a busy few night with clubs and I'm finally getting to my computer to post on my blog. This month I focus on Sympathy cards as I find these are hard to make and it's best to have them on hand.

I saw a similar card on Pinterest created by Lyssa but it was for a birthday card. So I switched up the greeting to turn it into a Thinking of you card. Thanks for the inspiration Lyssa!!

I had just purchased the new "Hardwood" stamp set and it was sitting on my desk waiting to be ink up. I have to say I love the wood look for the background with the trees.  I stamped my image with Soft Suede on to the Pool Party card stock.

Stamp With Anne Colour Challenge #3

Happy Wednesday!

I love Wednesday's as its the middle of the week and it's also Challenge day! I'm excited to share my colour challenge today with you that was inspired by my blog design. I decided to use the colours of Tangerine Tango, Very Vanilla and Baked Brown Sugar which is right from the Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper.

Colour Challenges-003
I have seen tons of cards online using the Scallop Tag Topper punch and decided it was time to learn how to make one. So I watch a few different video's and figure it was time to try it out. I have to say I love this new technique for creating unique cards!!
