A Card For A Couple

I created this card with Simon says Stamp Sending & Wishing stamps and dies, The Crafters Workshop Mini Tiny Circles stencil, Viva Decor Modelling Creme in Mother of Pearl, Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Hickory Smoke and Black Soot and Bazzill cardstock.

Beginning with the background I coloured the modelling creme with the distress ink and applied it through the stencil.  I then used Hickory Smoke and Black Soot to ink the die cut word.  The other part of the sentiment was heat embossed with Ranger embossing powder.  I added foam behind the stencilled layer but adhered everything else flat.

Get Well Soon Cards

These cards were created with Taylored Expressions Souper
 Soon, Lawn Fawn On The Mend, Doodlebug Twine, Die-namics
 Inside/Outside Stitched Circles and Bazzill cardstock.

I stamped both images and used the co-ordinating dies to cut 
them out.  I coloured the soup can with Copics and paper pieced
the tissue box.  I then created the front panel by die-cutting an
aperture.  It looked a little plain so I used a scoreboard to add 
horizontal lines.  Twine was wrapped around the top of card.  I 
stamped the sentiment and then adhered all the elements
 to a top folding card base using foam tape for dimension.

The inside of the card was finished with a further image
 and sentiment.

This card was created with Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Borders 2,
 Penny Black Heartfelt, Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear
 6mm & 4mm sequins, Bazzill Cardstock, My Favorite Things
 Cardstock and ribbon from my stash.

I began by cutting the border die.  I adhered this flat to the white

 dimension.  The final step was to add a few sequins.
