Quick Feel Better Note Card

Hey, I’m still here.

Trying to get the MOJO restarted. Ugh, it went to sleep!

Thanksgiving week was really busy, plus my clothes dryer died the week before, and I didn’t get a new machine until last Monday. (I am incomplete without laundry detergent and working laundry machines!) And I slept badly all week.

Cyber Monday was hectic (my husband kept asking me to order items in his shopping carts for him – LOL! I’m serious!), and Tuesday I got bogged down in my in-law paperwork for a bit.

I need to get moving on my own Christmas cards – hopefully I will have something to post in that direction for tomorrow.

If I don’t get sidetracked by the impeachment proceedings. Wherever you stand on the subject, it is HISTORIC.

Supplies:  Stamp – Lawn Fawn, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Bermuda Bay, Tempting Turquoise (retired), ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – My Favorite Things, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, twine – Stampin’ Up!.

 


Yellow and Purple Floral Feel Better Soon Duo

I pulled out the Stampin’ Up! Spring Garden stamp set (from 2003 – the second Stamp Camp I ever attended) to make a few get well cards.

I chose the colors, well, because my mother-in-law likes yellow and purple (the horizontal card is for her).

Supplies:  Stamps – Stampin’ Up!, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi (retired), inks – Gina K Designs Jelly Bean Green, Wild Lilac, Lawn Fawn Sunflower, Stampin’ Up! Soft Suede, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Lawn Fawn (stitched rectangle), Simon Says Stamp (banner), butterfly punch – Martha Stewart, Ranger Stickles – Icicle, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear.

Feel Better Soon BandAid Card

I struggled with this the entire way. The rubber stamp was dry rotting (lack of use?  defective batch?). It was a Sale-a-Bration set from 2013, and I never got any of the images to stamp very well. When I finished this card, the set went into the trash can.

Supplies:  Stamps – Stampin’ Up!, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Real Red, inks – Stampin’ Up! Brilliant Blue (retired), Bermuda Bay, Island Indigo, Tempting Turquoise (retired), VersaFine Onyx Black, die – Simon Says Stamp, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear.
