Stampin’Up Lovely As A Tree Card Sympathy card

Stampin’Up Lovely As A Tree Card Sympathy card

I really had a blast playing with my inks and tearing up paper for this card !!  The Lovely As A Tree stamp set is such a great go to set for any number of occasions.  The soothing blues in this card make it a great masculine card, but could as easily be a peaceful sympathy card…I used a mixture of sponging and a brayer, and used sticky notes to mask off where needed…

Stampin’Up! My Friend Happy Day Card

Stampin’Up! My Friend Happy Day Card

This was a fun card to create that delivers lot’s of “oohs!”  and it was a hit at our Stampin’Up!  convention among the swappers…I had a blast there among such incredibly artistic and talented women… sure made me feel good to hear the nice comments about my swaps.  I absolutely love to attend the conventions!

Stampin'Up! My Friend Happy Day Card

A quick stampin tip:  I cut out all my “boards” ahead and  used the inside corner of the 1″ square punch to make the top of the post, then laid them flat and stamped the wood pattern on top.  Also, don’t forget to curl the edges of the flowers up to give the card some dimension…it really make a difference!!

Remember to make the envelope pretty!  This adds so much wow!

Stampin’Up! Hearts for You Card

Stampin’Up! Hearts for You Card

There’s a story behind this!!  This was just one of those cards that I had in my head “exactly what it was supposed to turn out like” (and it looks nothing like what I originally envisioned!).  What I had thought would ultimately be a Christmas card turned out to be a “Love You” card…smile.

I do that often!  I hope that makes some of you out there feel better 🙂  For those that come to my clubs and classes they often tease me about being organized, a perfectionist, etc… They don’t often get to see the creative process that happens behind the scenes.

I create many  that are works in progress and I know they need tweaking, many that evolve into something else entirely, and just as many when that vision in my head translates to a beautiful card that exactly how I planned…LOL.  

Just like life, it’s always a surprise and that’s what makes it fun and inspiring to me!!
