Sending Get Well Wishes



Hi, everyone! Today I'm over on the CDD Blog bringing you the Daily post featuring Wishful Thoughts Stamps and Flowers In Bloom Stamps. I decided that I wanted to create a Get Well card and thought this was the perfect time to use these beautiful Orchids. 



I've been using my SVG Outlines a lot lately to build shaker cards, and I decided to run with that technique once again. I have to say I'm kind of loving the end result. This method is so easy, once your SVG Outlines merged into your designer software, size it accordingly. I change the size of my mat to 4.25in. X 5.5in., the same size as my card base. By doing this, you can determine exactly where you want your cutout. I usually center mine so that I can use a die-cut like the Fancy Frame Dies. You will be surprised how quickly this card comes together. 



Here are the products I used:

Flowers In Bloom

Wishful Thoughts

Flowers In Bloom SVG Outline

Fancy Frame Dies

Sunny Days

As always, thank you for joining us!

Thinking Of You



Hi, everyone and welcome! Today I'm sharing a little inspiration for the Craftin Desert Divas Monthly Mood Board Challenge. You still have a few days left to join in. 




I did a little heat embossing and distress ink blending to create this quick Thinking of You card. 
I highly recommend the Finetec Watercolor Set - Golds, they are gorgeous, and it takes very little water to use them. I also recommend investing in a few high-quality paint brushes or you'll just keep replacing the cheap ones. 





CARD BASE
  • 4.25in. X 5.5in. Canson Water Color Paper 
STAMP

  • Using Versafine Onyx Black Ink Stamp snowflakes and flourishes and heat emboss with clear embossing powder
  • Using painter's tape off paper and layer distress inks blending Seedless Preserves, Salty Ocean, and Peacock Feathers
  • Using Finetec Artist Mica Watercolor Set - Sterling Silver flick tiny splats over card
  • Let dry.
