Good Afternoon! We have had rain for a few days now. We have really needed it but now it can go away although it does make for a good Stamping day! We are off to a graduation party this afternoon and of course my card wasn’t done so quickly had to put one together. You would think I would have a pile of them ready to go. I do have a stash of Birthday and Sympathy. I guess I should just keep working on graduation cards as long as I have all the stamps out!
A sympathy card today. I love these flowers and bees! Can you tell? This is a good card for mailing because it is flat and will fit into a regular envelope nicely. The words can easily be changed to fit other occasions too. Links are below!
So this is how my cards start off generally. I will make lots of flowers and color and cut them out. I will stamp and punch out words. Then I’ll build kits of cards. Then when I need a card – I grab a kit and put it together with the words that I want! Then the rest gets put back into the kit pile.
I did add a little bee at the last minute. I needed a thank you card so I looked at my kits and came up with this card.
Happy Friday! On this card, the background is created with a solid block and to create the gradient, it is stamped three times before re-inking. The cupcake is colored with alcohol ink markers. Background white piece is dull gloss and oval cut out is regular white cardstock. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Good Afternoon! We have been enjoying the birds around our house these days. Since we have not been traveling – we have been able to more consistently fill the bird feeders and the birds have been fun to watch and see how they are nesting. The deer love the feeders too! 😆
Good Morning! We are living with some pretty hot weather these days. Hope you all are staying cool. It seems like lots of people are making life changing decisions these days and this is s great card to send to them. I love the map pattern paper.
Happy Friday! Here is a very simple sympathy card that only takes a few minutes to put together. To stamp the sympathy phrase, I placed the white piece of paper with the oval cutout on the card and marked lightly with a pencil where the edges were before taking away the white piece and stamping the words. Then stamped the flower and bee on the white piece, colored the images and assembled.
Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend and links are below.
