Tulip Feel Better Card

This Spring Garden stamp set goes WAY back, almost to my stamping beginning (fall of 2002). The copyright date on the set is 2003, so it might be from the first or second stamp camp I attended. I will not get rid of it until I wear it out!

Today, it turned into a feel better soon card, which I find a little more versatile than the traditional get well soon.

Do you send get well cards?

So, I was procrastinating…I should have been working on my personal Mother’s Day cards. Or finishing up my spring cleaning.

This card is part of a collection that I am working on for someone. I am ALMOST done the collection, but I keep getting sidetracked. I really need to power through and get it done.

Kitchen remodel begins today. I spent part of the weekend packing up everything currently in the kitchen and moving it to the basement. REALLY tired. I am curious to see the new kitchen come together.

Supplies: Stamps – Altenew, Stampin’ Up!, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Calypso Coral (retired), Taylored Expressions Grape Jelly, inks – Stampin’ Up!

“Feline Better” Card

masked-stenciled-feline-fine

I love the punny sentiment, “Hope you are feline better” that came in the Simon Says Stamp Playful Kittens stamp set.

I cut a circle mask, blended ink through a stencil over the mask, then removed the stencil and blended a little more ink. The cat was stamped, embossed, colored and then die cut from a separate piece of Neenah Solar White card stock.

Supplies: Stamps – Simon Says Stamp, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Gray, Smoky Slate, inks – Copics C1, R0000, R81, Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Ink Tumbled Glass, VersaFine Smokey Gray, dies – Simon Says Stamp (cat), Spellbinders (circles), stencil – Heidi Swapp, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.
