Teal Floral Anniversary Card

A quick anniversary card to fill a request from my mother in law. YES, I did make a pink version of this previously.

Hope everyone is well!

I realized this week that I have become a little lax with my trips to the outside world. (The fact that my parents keep forgetting to put items on their weekly errand list has caused Offspring3 and I to go out more often – LOL!) I will strive to be better! I have put an extra bottle of hand sanitizer in my minivan (always have one in my purse, but if it is OUT, in PLAIN SIGHT, maybe I will do better!).

Supplies:  Stamps – My Favorite Things, Rubber Stampede, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Bermuda Bay, Soft Sky (retired), inks – Copic BG13, BG15, G46, VersaFine Onyx Black, VersaMark, die – Simon Says Stamp, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, Stampin’ Up! Sterling Silver.

Happy Yellow Card Duo

Yes, you are required to say “happy yellow” in your best Bob Ross voice!

These went to my mother in law this week. I think she gave some of the last cards to one of her caregivers and now needs replacements? Unclear.

“Stay at Home” is going OK. I am only leaving the house to walk, get groceries, or check on my parents. Offspring3 and I completed a 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle in about 8 hours on Monday.

How are things in your private space?

Pink Floral Thinking of You Card

My Mom asked me to make a card for her, so here we are. It is for a breast cancer survivor, hence the all out pink.

I kept it basic – not sure if I could even complete something complex.

I was inspired by Yana Smakula’s tutorial – coloring on  colored cardstock. As you can see, I did not choose to make my background dark.

Supplies:  Stamps – My Favorite Things, Papertrey Ink, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Pirouette Pink, Pretty In Pink (retired), inks – Copic R21, R81, YG95, VersaFine Onyx Black, die – Simon Says Stamp, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.


Pool and Sparkly Navy Thinking of You Note Card

 

My mojo is being skittish – I think it is hiding under the basement couch .

I pulled out a background stamp that has been on my mind (I think I saw something with a background done with a circle stencil last week??).

Supplies:  Stamps – Papertrey Ink, Stampin’ Up!, paper – Curious Metallics Blueprint, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, inks – Gina K. Designs Sea Glass, VersaFine Clair Twilight, dies – My Favorite Things (pierced rectangle), Taylored Expressions (flower), embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.

Aloe Plants “Aloe!” Note Card

Took a break from the mother-in-law project today. I have 6 of 8 complete.

These Newton’s Nook aloe plants, with the “Aloe!” sentiment, gave me just the breath of fresh air I needed. I stamped and used the coordinating dies to make them more dimensional.

Designs Wild Lilac, Lawn Fawn Deep Sea, Stampin’ Up!
