With Deepest Sympathy Card {Thanks for Caring}

This card uses the Thanks for Caring stamp from the Occasions Mini Catalog. Unfortunately, I have needed to make a few sympathy cards lately.

The base is River Rock textured card stock. I placed a wide strip of Chocolate Chip card stock down the front, layered with a short piece of Elegant Soiree DSP. Above and below that piece, I used 2 Basic Pearls.

As for the sentiment, I colored it with SU Markers: Soft Suede, Baja Breeze, and River Rock. It was stamped on Whisper White card stock on which I paper pierced the corners only. With a sponge dauber, I sponged on some River Rock ink just to soften the white a little bit. That was matted onto Chocolate Chip textured card stock with stampin dimensionals.

Horizontally, I added a strip of Baja Breeze card stock, embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder and the Big Shot.

Here for You Friendship or Sympathy Card

This card is not my usual style, but I wanted an excuse to try the Ribbon Scrunching technique using Baja Breeze Seam Binding.

To scrunch the ribbon like this, you take one end of a length of ribbon and pull at it to loosen the fibers running the short way. Then, you grab one of the fibers that run lengthwise and pull. The ribbon will scrunch up as you pull, giving you a beautiful ruffle effect.

In my opinion, this ruffled ribbon has a very vintage-y look so I made a card using the vintage styled Friends 24-7 stamp set. I stamped the bird with Soft Suede ink on Very Vanilla card stock, cutting it out with scissors. I also sprayed Shimmer Mist (Frost Shimmer paint mixed with 70% rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle) onto the bird.

Behind the bird, I stamped the flourish image, also from Friends 24-7 in Baja Breeze ink on Very Vanilla card stock. I sprayed it with the Shimmer Mist also and Paper Pierced around the edges. That is matted onto a 3″ square of Soft Suede Textured card stock with stampin dimensionals.

The base is Very Vanilla, layered with Elegant Soiree DSP in this Soft Suede circular pattern. I attached the ribbon to the front of the card using Mini Glue Dots.

For the sentiment, I stamped it in Soft Suede ink on Very Vanilla. I also stamped the flourish type image in Baja Breeze ink in the background, then punched it out with 1 3/8″ Circle Punch. I layered that onto Soft Suede punched with the Scallop Circle Punch. An Antique Brad was added to the scallop circle and it’s adhered to the base with stampin dimensionals.

Happy I do day {Wedding Gate Fold Card}

Whoa, I love the way this card turned out. It was very hard to part with it, but I guess I can always make another one! I love the Elegant Soiree DSP so very much–this pattern especially.

This is another Gate Fold card (see this post for measurements) using the Word Play stamp set. I especially love the “happy I do day” sentiment, which I colored with Baja Breeze and Basic Black marker. That was stamped on Very Vanilla card stock and I added a Basic Rhinestone accent to the diamond ring. The very vanilla was paper pierced before being layered with Basic Gray and Baja Breeze card stock.

The card base is Baja Breeze, and the front panels are layered with Basic Gray and Elegant Soiree DSP.  After adhering paper to the front panels, I attached the stamped portion to the left panel using a small amount of Sticky Strip. On the other side, I used a small magnetic closure.

Inside, I layered Very Vanilla on Basic Gray card stock and adhered it to the base. The sentiment is from Goody Goody Gumdrops. Across the bottom, I used some scraps to make a pocket. I put mini glue dots along the bottom and sides, keeping the top open for a gift card, money, etc.
