Sympathy Card

Sadly a friends dad passed away suddenly and I was asked to make a card for the office to give to her. I didn't want to do the "normal" sympathy card so came up with this, I will be taking it round over the bank holiday with some flowers.

SU items used: Whisper white card
Hodgepodge elements
Pretties Kit
Chocolate chip Ink pad (used to colour the flowers)
Very vintage wheel used for the background and also over the flower
Soft suede ribbon
Sentiment taken from Vintage Vogue set
Rhinestone brads
Own items: Deckled edged card

Well work and the Diploma I've just started is keeping me busy, hence not being on for a while. Yesterday I had some friends and family round for a crafting session and it was great fun. On Tuesday I went and helped Victoria out with a hostess party and again had fun helping.

I've made a few cards since my last visit and would like to share them with you, hope you like them and please leave a comment, good or

On this one I wanted to show you could make a big card out of the stamp sets. This was for the office as one of our colleagues is getting married shortly and is made using the following:
SU items: Bride papers, Mr & Mrs Stamp set, round and round scollop punch and Lavendar Lace ink pad
Own items: cardstock, ribbon and false brads

SU products: Flight of the butterfly stamp set, Oval all stamp set, ribbon, Boardering blue ink pad, bride card, oval plain and scolloped punches

SU products: Greenhouse Garden stamp set, Say it with Scollops stamp set, Real red ink pad, jumbo wheel - its beautiful, real red ink cartridge, round scolloped and round punches, whisper white card on the top section I stamped the image with versamark then, using the brayer went overit in Pretty in Pink in to give the resist look.

This card was for my youngest daughter to give her sister for her 21st birthday today.
SU products: Red cardstock from Bold Brights and pink from Soft Subtles, Greenhouse garden stamp set, Real Red and Pretty in pink ink pads, white ribbon, oval and round scollop punches, oval and round punches, the greetings were taken from Fun and Fast Notes stamp set and Whimsical words stamp set'

Good afternoon

Wow I can't believe its the weekend, and a long one at that. I've been sat here waiting in anticipation for my starter kit to arrive so I can play over the next 3 days only to be told by Victoria that UPS don't deliver on a weekend.... how annoying is that?

Over the last week or so I have been playing with the SU products I already have and these are some of the results:

Items used;

SU products : Very Vintage Jumbo wheel, Perfect plum cartridge, Whimsical words and Vintage Vogue stamp set
Own Stash : Card stock, ribbon, circle punch and pearls
I stamped the flowers using the masking technique, then cut out a seperate image and placed it on the centre flower.

Items Used:
SU products: Very vintage large wheel, flight of the butterfly stamp set, scollped punch, brayer, Boardering blue ink,
Own Stash: Pearlescent Card, ribbon, brad, glitter, boarder punch, gloss photo paper, acetate, stazon ink, versamark ink (the last 3 products are available from SU but I already had them)
Using the versamark I stamped the butterfly on to the photo paper then brayered over it with the boardering blue ink to give a resist look. With the wheel I stamped the pearlescent card, nd a piece of white card. The scolloped punched was using the resist effect again but with the wheel instead. Using stazon I stamped the butterfly image onto acetate and glittered from the back. I then assembled as shown.

Finally this was made using the following products:
SU products : Bride paper pack, chocolate chip ink, brayer, oval scolloped punch, oval punch, word window punch.
Own Stash : Butterflies, brad, ribbon and sentiment
I basically brayered over the bride paper and matt and layered as shown.
Thanks for taking the time to look at my projects.
