Backyard Basics Sympathy

Do you keep a supply of sympathy cards?  I don't.  I know it would make  sense to have some on hand but I just don't.  Today I needed to make one and while I was making the card I was thinking about the person who we were sending it to.  I hope she finds some comfort knowing that so many people care about her and are thinking about her.

I also lined the Very Vanilla envelope with a liner.  I love how it looks, just raises it up a notch.  Thanks for stopping by and hope to stamp with you soon.


Backyard Basics in Wisteria Wonder

I seem to be using the same sets over and over again.  You must think I have only 3 sets.  I really do have others but I seem to be in a flowery mood and am happily rotating between Backyard Basics, Regarding Dahlias and Flower Shop.  Bear with me, I am sure I will be moving on to other sets that I own soon.  The other thing I noticed is that I rarely ever use Wisteria Wonder, not sure why but it just is not a color that I pull out often.   So today I will share something familiar (Backyard Basics) and something not so familiar (Wiateria Wonder).

Backyard Basics Wisteria Wonder

Stamps: Backyard Basics, Regarding Dahlias, Background Basics
Ink: VersaMark, Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant, Crushed Curry, Pear Pizzaz, Basic Black

I Miss You Backyard Basics

Yes, I am back with another sample using the Backyard Basics bundle(132728).    I keep returning to the great images to color and the ease of cutting them out with the matching framelits.

Ink: Basic Black, VersaMark, Calypso Coral and Soft Sky markers

Backyard Basic bfly calypso coral close

The card was looking a little drab so I decided to bling up the butterflies.  Here's what I did.  I enbossed the image with white embossing powder and then cut it out using the Backyard Basics framelits.  I added color to the butterfly by coloring  the back of the image with markers.  I still wanted more glitz so I embossed the entire front of the butterfly with VersaMark and Iridescent Ice embossing powder.
