Thinking of you

When I spotted this stamp at Simon Says Stamp I simply had to have it. It’s a big and beautiful tree and an empty swing which is optional. I immediately thought it would be perfect for those hard to make “thinking of you” cards. When I have time to make a few I will do them up in different colours. It is so handy to have a few for when you need one and don’t feel like making any there and then. The sentiment says “thinking of you” in Norwegian. I put it on foam tape and added a little butterfly in matching colours to go with.

Sympathy Angel

There hasn’t been a whole lot of non-DT cards here lately, so I figure it’s time to post up a few more of those. Today I’m showing you a sympathy card I made on order. It is not often I make this kind of card as a layered card. I gave myself the challenge of colouring up in very pale shades which is rather unusual for me, but I felt this kind of card needed a soft feeling to it.

The stamp is Young Angel by Aurora Wings and the papers are various ones by Maja Design. I’ve used dies from Memory Box and La-La Land Crafts, and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Here is another photo of the card.

LLLC: With sympathy

For my La-La Land Crafts project this week I have a very clean and simple card. This is mostly because I want my sympathy cards to be very plain. I’ve kept it in soft colours, mostly keeping to a mid shade of grey as well as white. You can find a list of the products I’ve used below the photo.

LLLC: Sympathy

Day two of the new La-La Land Crafts release. Today I am showing you the stamp set Sympathy. I’ve made the background using the background stamp. As you know I love these mini butterflies and thought they were perfect for this project as well. Instead of using the matching ovals this time I’ve only used the scalloped ovals and then coloured in the centre to make sure the colour matches my card. Oh and I do love this doily die and will be using it a lot!
