Sympathy Card

Sympathy Card

This is the worst kind of card to make. I have had the unfortunate task to make a card for my Sister-in-Law who lost her husband after being diagnosed with cancer 3 weeks before he passed away.

I am not good at doing this sort of thing, but looked out the Stampin Up Thoughtful Brances set of stamps, and Perfect Plum ink, masked off a square and brayered with Perfect Plum. I know next time I will use my Misti and stamp with the black ink a number of times as I would have preferred to have the ink looking darker. Stampin_Up_Sympathy

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday

I want to share a card with you that I had made for my husbands birthday today. The technique had been inspired by some Christmas Cards I had found on Pinterest made using watercolour painting.

Having never really done any painting (except at school) I looked on YouTube and found that I was fascinated by some of the videos showing how it was done. It was amazing to see pictures emerging by just using different brushes and paints.

Not really being an artist I made a few splodges on ARCHES  Cold Pressed watercolour paper using my Stampin’ Up Inkpads.  When the paper was dry, I cut into a square, made an outline frame using Spellbinder square dies with cream card, then used some Card-io stamps to stamp some branches and leaves to frame the picture. The Golfer was then cut out using Joanna Sheene golfer die, coloured in and glued on the front.

Hope you like it.golfer-card
