Tea And Sympathy

Back Again!  

A couple of more cards to share! 

This card will be entered into the Challenges at: 

Hero Arts, For The Guys.
Stinkin Inkers, You're The Man.

This is for our son in law, Tim.
He enjoys all types of beverages! ;)

 I used the Simon Says Adult Beverages stamp set.
Flourishes Grab A Cup and What A Catch stamp sets.
PTI Uncorked stamp set and die.

Fussy cut my images.
Scored every 1/4" on bottom portion.
Copic Markers.
Amalgam Black ink.
Mini CandyDots.

This next card will be entered into the Challenge at
Gina K Designs, It's All About The Background.

I was inspired by Jen McGuire and her technique shown HERE.
Faux Metallic Texture.  
I have since purchased the TH Paper she used, 
makes a world of difference!  
Hard to see the background but it is full of lovely texture.

I used the GKD products; 
Friendship Flower, Scripty Sayings 2 stamp sets.
Hugs (layered) stamp and die sets.
Amalgam Black ink.

Copic Markers.
Couture Creations 'Flint' Embossing Folder.
Glitter Paper.


Thanks for strolling by!



  1. the beverage card was a great idea, I love the background you used with them and great fussy cutting.
    Such a pretty flower on the second card, like how you framed it!

  2. Two great cards here Donna! Great fussy cutting on the first card and I like the scored lines to give you a spot for the sentiment. The floral card is layered to perfection and dreamy as always!

  3. These are both just fabulous. I know Tim will love that cute and whimsical card with all the "beverages". It's a perfect man-card. The background on the second is just wonderful. Love your shading on that one!!

  4. Your s-i-l will love his "beverage" card. Love the second card the colors are so dramatic.

  5. Nice! I did have to read to 'see' the background! Lol! Thanks for playing in our challenge!

  6. Donna, waving a big hello from Florida! LOVING both of your creations. I have several stamps similar to the sentiment image you stamped at the bottom of the floral interior. WHAT A GREAT IDEA! I am definitely casing that design tip from you, because it's a perfect way of using these oldies-but-goodies! Thank you for showcasing that idea. The rich browns in your flower, and that lovely frame are beautiful! Tim will be delighted with that great card! I especially like that designer paper with the swirling hearts - almost like "the aroma of family love" in the air - and that is just what your family always exudes in your photos. Hoping Tim enjoys many more happy birthdays! huggers, de

  7. A handsome card for a handsome SIL. A fun one too, and I am sure that he will love it. We always need HUG cards to send out and I appreciate that it could be for sympathy or encouragement.
