A Cheery Get Well

Sunflowers and a little ladybug, put a little smile on my face when I first saw this cute set, Flowers for All Season. So why not put a smile on someones face who may not be feelin so well! The 4x4 base is Kiwi Kiss with a horizontal band from Ghostly Greetings DSP (designer series paper) - and its not even a halloween card :) SU knows what they are doing, halloween on one side and any occasion on the other - makes the paper soooo versatile! My image from Flowers for All Season is stamped in Basic Black onto Whisper White and I used SU Blender Pens to color it in. TIP: Squeeze the lid of your stamp pad together to kreate a pool of ink on the cover of the opened pad. Dab your Blender Pen in the pool of ink and begin to color/shade. Great alternative to watercolor. Its keeping with the look of the other cards made with this set - to be placed in a box and given as a very cute and functional gift. Scroll down my posts to view my other cards with this adorable set of 4. Ok, back to the card... the Whisper White corners are Ticket Punched and then paper pierced using the Mat Pack with template and mounted onto So Saffron. The sentiment was taken from a Fun and Fast Notes set image. Utilizing Markers, you can be selective and only ink up what you'd like stamped, so I inked the sentiment with my Old Olive Marker and stamped on Whisper White and again mounted on So Saffron. Added 2 Earth Elements Brads to place emphasis on the sentiment and popped it up on dimensionals.
I have one more image from this set to show you :) And stay tune for the projects done at my Sweet Treats Class. Thanks Ladies, I had a blast as always!

For now, go kreate

You have done wonders with this little stamp set! I like your ingenuity in using the Ghostly Greetings DP. Your blender pen/watercolors is divine. I need a lesson :) Hugs . . . Mary
