Speedy Recovery, Wyatt!




Our grandson, Wyatt, had surgery on Tuesday to try to correct his lazy eye. This is the card that I made for him.

The turtles are soft, puffy stickers from Sandylion. The letters are chipboard which I colored with Copic markers. I colored the matting cardstock, too, with the same markers. I mounted the matted layer on foam squares. Here is what I put on the inside, printed with my computer.


Wishing you

a speedy recovery

much faster than

these turtles!!!

Pink Flowery Birthday

While going through my books of stamps, I came across this set from Sheena that I got from a friend a few years ago. I stamped it on vellum and colored on the back side. I placed a panel of ivory behind it to showcase it more. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink, is matted with pink, and mounted on foam squares.

Stampin' Up! Flowers

I went to a "crafty" garage sale a couple weeks ago and bought this Stampin' Up! set and five new Kaleidacolor ink pads. I wanted to make sure and use the stamp set right away, so I made these two cards. For this first one, the stamps I used are the flower, the stem and the leaves. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. I also used one of the Kaleidacolor pads for the flower. The green layer was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. The black layer was cut with an unbranded die.
For this second one, I used the flower stamp and the sentiment stamp. I used a Sizzix folder for the orange layer and Copic markers for the coloring. On both cards, the image panel is mounted on foam squares.

Wildflower Birthday Wishes

I stamped this image at our Group Gathering anytime in the last several years. It was hard for me to do, but I "sloppy" colored it. I added a small enamel dot (or nail head) to the yellow flower. The sentiment is from a new-to-me Stampin' Up! set that I bought at a garage sale. The stitched frame was done with an unbranded die.

Crafty Secrets Birthday

I've had this Crafty Secrets stamp set for many years, and I'm not sure I've ever used it. So, here are two cards using stamps from the same set. I really wanted to combine the stamps, but I wasn't able to do it to my satisfaction.

The first stamp I used was this ferny stamp. I stamped with green and matted with matching cardstock. I added a strip of vellum with the sentiment (from Impression Obsession) stamped on it and embossed with black embossing powder.
For this card, I used the flowery stamp. (Come to think of it, I may have used this stamp previously.) I stamped it in dark purple (Vintage Violet) on vellum. I placed the stamped vellum over patterned paper. The sentiment is done with an unbranded die and is layered for dimension. The cardbase on both cards is ivory.
