Joy to the World Trees - Take 2

Good morning! I'm back yet again to share another card featuring more of the new release from Simon Says Stamp. I just had to use the lovely Lined Trees Dies again! 

Did some distress ink blending, then added some flicks of water and gold and black mist. I attached the trees with tiny dots of Ranger Multi-Medium, but only in the centers, leaving them free to move at the top and bottom for dimension. That large "Joy" was embossed with gold glitter powder to make it shine! Added a tiny bit of torn vellum along the bottom just to ground those trees.

All supplies used are linked below - thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!!!

Peace and Strength

Good morning - I'm stopping by to share one of the harder types of cards to make. Recently my cousin lost her husband. While we don't see each other that often, and they lived in California, it was still sad news to hear, and always hard to lose family. I had several DT projects that I needed to work on, but had a hard time getting the creative juices flowing, but as I sat at my desk trying to make something, this card is what happened - and was mailed to my cousin. 

This was my first time using the newest colors of MFT dye inks - and the ink pads have been re-designed. I LOVE them! They stamped so beautifully and crisp - as you can see on this card!

Thanks for stopping by today and letting me share this card with you. Hopefully it can inspired you if you find yourself in the difficult place of needing to make a sympathy card for a loved one.

Cat Thank You Card

Good morning! Dropping by today to share a special thank you card that a friend asked me to make. She wanted a thank you card for a veterinarian who had gone above and beyond in the care of a naturally, it needed to have a cat on it! :)

I colored up and fussy cut out the kitties, and heat embossed my sentiment on a hand trimmed banner. Added some score lines around the edges of the pattern paper for some interest, and a layer of vellum with a torn edge over the top pattern paper to soften it. All supplies are linked below if you are curious!

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you are having a wonderful day!
