Love And Sympathy

Good Afternoon!

A couple of cards to share with you today.

This first one will be entered into the Papertrey Ink Challenge, Spot Color Word Dies.  Betsy has a wonderful video you can watch HERE.

I made this into a little gift card and I know the perfect little girl to give it to, I also have  gifts stockpiled for any and all occasions, YAY!  I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set, Ballerina Beauty, stamped in Raven Black ink.   Then using the Big Basics Love You die I cut out my 'hidden sentiment'.

I colored the Love You die cut in 5 different shades of Pink using Copic Markers.  Then I placed it back into the negative space.  Added a few Pink Sequins in different shades and sizes and a bit of Baker's Twine.

My next card will be entered into the Challenges at; Simon Says Monday, Flower Power and Simon Says Wednesday, Sparkle And Shine.

Using the Gina K Designs stamp sets, Elegant Florals and Sending Love I created this Sympathy card.  I stamped the leafy vine stamp in Versa Mark and then Heat Embossed in Gold Embossing Powder.  This became my 'hidden' panel.  

My top panel I dry embossed using a Sizzix Embossing Folder.  I then cut it down a bit so I could have a bit of the heat embossed panel peeking out.  I also added Copper Foiled paper to each edge.   This was popped up using foam dimensions. 

I stamped my Calla Lily 3 times with Versa Mark ink and then heat embossed in Gold Embossing Powder.  These I fussy cut out.  Stitched Traditional Tag die cut for my heat embossed sentiment.  Natural Twine.

A little bit of depth and dimension.

Hoping this brings love and comfort.

*and for the record I made this card with a fever and sinus infection  ;)  

Thanks for popping by.
