To everything there is a season....so the Good Book tells us. I've had need of some sympathy cards lately as one of the seasons of life. The brand new Mason Jar
set provides exactly the right stamps for many occasions, including this one. I created this card using this beautiful new set and a few other goodies from my stamp room.
Enjoy your day....make the most of it! Jane
Hello! It's Gracie from Graciellie Design. Today I have a fun technique to share with you... Floral specialty papers can be beautiful, especially when they have a metallic finish. I decided to go ahead and try to make my own using Floral Greetings and Peaceful Peonies from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps and Laser Silver Lustre paper.
I stamped the flower multiple times to create a pattern. I used Color Box Mix'd Media Inx in Truffe and heat embossed it with Bridal Tinsel embossing powder from Ranger. I then colored the flowers applying a bit of Zig markers and spreading the color using my fingers. I kept layering the color until I was happy with the shading. This technique gives the flowers a stained look. The glossy paper allows the color to glide and you end up getting a different coloring effect.
I used the same ink to stamp the sentiment on Heavyweight Vellum 48# and cut a banner. I decided to fussy cut 2 flowers from the remainding stamped paper and adhere them on top of a simple pink frame cut from Mountain Rose Glimmer cardstock -which goes along perfectly with the Rose Quartz Mica / Metallic card base. To add dimension to the frame and flowers I used 3D Foam Strips and Foam Squares.
I hope you enjoyed today's project idea. Make sure to visit Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps

Hello SWEET Friends! It's Monika here today with a fun card.
Will you join me for a cup of coffee?
I love coffee, but right now I am taking a break... trying to cut back on caffeine and sugar. So this is how I am enjoying a cup of coffee today!
The background (water color cardstock) was sponged with green ink, splashed with water, dried, then stamped with the floral image repeatedly.
As I was looking through my scrap pile, I found a piece of a2 card already stamped with the circle borders. The lines were crooked, so I set it aside ages ago... stamping the coffee cozy on it worked just fine and it added a nice pattern to my coffee cup.
The heart was stamped on a scrap piece of water color paper, cut out, and colored with ZIG water color marker. I used the same color marker to ink up the check mark.
Thanks for stopping by,
