Wonderful Wednesday!! Sympathy.


Happy Wednesday everyone.  This week I'm posting a card I have made to send to my dear sister-in-law, who just lost her Dad.  She is a card maker herself, so I hope she likes this one.  I used Sincere Sympathy, which has several great sentiments besides this one.

I always like the idea of butterflies for a sympathy card because they seem to be so carefree and that's how I see it for someone who leaves this world.  I used Rich Razzleberry for the card base and also for the butterfly border and the frame behind the sentiment.  The patterned paper is Butterfly Glade from Wild Rose Studio.  I punched out a couple of Handsome Hunter butterflies with my Martha Stewart punch and I added some purple gems.

Now how about you making a card or some creation for Wonderful Wednesday.  As always WW is 'Anything Goes', so you can use any theme your little heart desires.  Be sure to head over to Kraftin' Kimmie's Shop and see what is going on there.  She always has some cool stuff going on.

I made this card using one of the adorable stamps from the Autumn Wishes.  I am a huge fan of Cheryl's stamps.  I used some retired Baja Breeze for the card base and the sentiment and I matted all the paper pieces onto S.U. Primrose Petals.  The sentiment is from the June Kraftin' Kimmies set called 'You're Sunsational' There are two other gorgeous images in the Autumn Wishes set along with a few sentiments.  I added some cute matching flowers at the bottom and some yummy Primrose Petals ribbon down the right side.  Hope you like it.

Happy Stampin'

Kraftin' Kimmie August Release, Day 4!!!

Welcome back to our FOURTH and final day of August Krafty Peeks! It's almost time to release ALL the new SPOOK-tacular stamp sets that you've been seeing all week!
We have TWO adorable new sets to share with you today from artist, Becky Pearce! These sets can be used on their own or in combination with each other or even other Halloweenie type sets!!

First is this sweet set of feathered friends called
HAPPY OWL-OWEEN!
The set features three main images, several smaller accessory stamps and five SP-WHOO-KY sentiments for a total of THIRTEEN fabulous stamps in the set!
Next up is a fun set of GOURD-GEOUS images and friends called HARVEST BLESSINGS!
The set features three main pumpkin images, faces that you can stamp on the pumpkins if you choose, several smaller accessory stamps and four sentiments for a total of THIRTEEN
fab-BOO-less stamps in the set!!
Okay, so now I'll tell you a little about my card, which is of course using one of the Harvest Blessings stamps.  I love using sentiment stamps, probably because I'm not great at colouring.  For my card base and matting, I used S.U. Tempting Turqoise.  The other colour I used is Cherry Cobbler.  I used Fall Friends patterned paper from Doodlebug, actually 4 of the different designs.  I added some Daffodil Delight GG ribbon, some mathing buttons and some super cute Prima Flowers in the lower corner.
