Heartfelt Sympathy and Giving Hearts

Happy Thursday! And happy it is! I love the 2nd Thursday of every month because it's card class with some pretty awesome ladies. And today's class is extra special. One of the ladies that comes to class works on our extended care unit within our hospital and she had mentioned to me last week that the residents were in need of Birthday and Sympathy card and that got me to thinking, what if we did a couple of Birthday card designs and a Sympathy card for our normal total of 3 cards and donate them to the seniors on our long term care unit? In return, class would be free as I would donate the materials and we could spread a little joy...well did these ladies rise to the occasion! Not only have they agreed to do this but some of them have actually made extra cards on their own! Talk about some really awesome people that I am so honored to know and stamp with.
So, today, I am sharing with you the Sympathy card design that I did for this evenings class. It is using the Sale-a-Bration DSP, Inside the Lines. This paper was designed for the purpose of watercoloring with the new watercolor pencils, however, I wanted to show how beautiful it is left in it's natural black and white. And this card does in fact show that.
Stamp Set: Heartfelt Sympathy
Paper:Basic Black 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" and 4 1/4" x 3 1/4"; Inside the Lines DSP 5 1/4" x 4"; Whisper White 4" x 3"
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
Misc: Basic Pearls; Fast Fuse

Adhere the DSP to the card base. Stamp the image onto the Whisper White and layer it onto the Basic Black and attach to the card. Attach 3 of the tiny pearls to the upper right corner of the stamped Whisper White.

Very quick, very simple and very elegant while conveying a most heartfelt sympathy for someone your care for. I hope you liked this card. Its one of those designs you hope you never have to use, but unfortunately we find we need.

Please feel free to leave a comment and I wish you all a wonderful day!
Happy Stamping!

Out With The Old and In With The New

Wow, can you believe it, today is the final day to place orders from the 2015-2016 annual catalog and the Occasions catalogs! Tomorrow morning the new and oh so fantastic new 2016-2017 annual catalog goes live! Trust me when I tell you, I can barely contain my excitement! This catalog goes way beyond fantastic! However, if there is anything on the retirement list that you really want, today's your last chance. Lots has sold out, but there is still a lot of great things left so feel free to check it out before it's gone forever in less than 24 hours!
Ok, now for today's card. I can finally share it with you. I had to keep it under wraps until after I gave it to my dad for his birthday and I didn't want him to stop by here and see it before he received it, so now it's in his hot hands and now I can share it with all of you. This comes from my oh so favorite new set, Swirly Bird stamp set! I can not believe how versatile this stamp set is and of course I adore the coordinating Thinlits as well....waves are compliments of the Thinlits!
The sentiment comes from the stamp set Thoughtful Banners. I totally love this set as well because you create sooo many sentiments, its almost endless the combination of words you can put together to create just the right sentiment. The colors I used are Mint Macaron, Night of Navy and for the "sun" Delightful Dijon, the boat is Tip Top Taupe and the flag is Real Red. I hope you enjoy this card, I think dad did. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below. I hope you all have a great day and happy stamping.

More Swirly Scribbles

Happy Saturday! Wow, is it me or did this week just zoom by? I didn't even get to collect my $200! I'm sure I passed "go" somewhere along the way. Anyway, today I will be manning a huge 3 family garage sale, actually, all weekend. I think my house lost several hundred pounds from this little clean out. Doesn't it feel great when you get organized? I'm making my way into the world of organization, it just happens to be a process. 

Ok, so, here is another card project using the Swirly Scribble Thinlits. LOVE this set. I have a few more ideas to share with you using this bundle, but here is today's:
Here I attached a flirty Flamingo piece 4 x 5.25" to a standard Whisper White card base. I then stamped a Whisper White piece 3.25"x 5" with the Hardwoods background stamp with Basic Gray archival ink and cut out 1 each of the Scribble Thinlits from Peek-a-boo Peach, Flirty Flamingo and Sweet Sugarplum. I adhered them using the Fine Tip glue and the Sentiment, which comes from the new Confetti Celebration stamp set, I stamped in Basic Gray onto a piece of Whisper White and bannered the end using the Triple Banner punch...another must have. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below. I look forward to hearing from you! 
Have a great day and happy stamping,
