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.

MFT Superstar – CAS

Another one of the challenges for this year’s My Favorite Things Superstar is to make a clean and simple card. I actually made a couple today as I had a few ideas and this is the one I’ve decided to enter with. I’ve used the rubber stamp Fresh Cut Flowers and stamped it with a faint coloured ink. Then I have masked it off and coloured a stipe of it only in mostly greyscale, apart from the leaves which I wanted to remain green. For the sentiment I’ve used a text stamp from the Ewe Are the Best set and the you part of the miss you die which I’ve coloured up to match the rest.

Copics used: G21, G40, G94, N0, N1, N3, N5, N7 + black multiliner 0.3

MFT Stamps – Superstar – Clean and Simple Genious

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!

Thinking of you

Today I have a clean and simple card for you with loads of white space and an important sentiment. The stamp is from My Favorite Things (the Ewe Are the Best set) and the sentiment is from Altenew. A perfect match, I think. I used a little bit of purple cardstock as a frame.
