Occasions Alphabet

Since I was in a Raspberry Ripple monochromatic mood I made another get well card using the Occasions Alphabet stamp set. This set contains 26 different sentiments that cover every occasion you can think of – and the alphabet itself is done in a particularly lovely font I think.

Occasions Alphabet

So here is what I came up with. Once again I used the Build a Banner Simply Created Kit, however this time I tried out the chevron template. (You can watch my video HERE to see how I did the technique itself.)

I added a piece of Tea Lace Paper Doilies that was left over from my earlier project folding it in half and cut out the sentiment that I stamped in Raspberry Ripple using our banner framelit from the Hearts a Flutter Framelits set.

What do you think? I’m not sure that I’m happy with the letter q – I’m thinking maybe I should have used a different letter. Hmmmm – we’ll hopefully the card will brighten their day a little when they receive it.

Bordering on Romance

Recently I needed a get well card and here is what I came up with. I used the Bordering on Romance Stamp Set to create the focal point for my card.  This is a great set since you can do so many different things with the images. And did you notice that the doily wasn’t white and were wondering how I added the color to it? I’ve got a how to video you can see here.

Bordering on Romance Get Well Card

Have you ever water colored with our Stampin’ Write Markers? I really love our Stampin’ Write Markers and use them for a lot of my projects.  It’s one of my favorite ways to use them and now that our Watercolor Paper comes in larger sheets it a lot easier to use them for any of our images.

I hope this card brought a smile to her face when she opened it.
