I recently needed to make a galaxy background for a group I'm in. I love making these backgrounds, so I made a few extra. I'm glad I did...this is the cute card I made using the Half Pint Heroes stamp set illustrated by Claire Brennan and sold by Gina K. Designs.
The inside of the card says, "love you to the moon and back."
Good morning, friends. Still waiting for cooler weather.
Nobody likes to have to send sympathy cards, but occasionally it's necessary. I found myself in that position this week. A friend from a card swapping group I'm in lost her husband, and so I found myself having to make a sympathy card. Since this card is going overseas, I didn't want a lot of bulk.
I grabbed some spray inks and spritzed white cardstock. Then, when dry, I ran it through an embossing folder. I liked the texture it gave. I added some silver pen highlights to some of the embossed flower centers.
Next I got out some Stampin Up!™ flower stamps (Flower Shop #130942 and Petite Petals - retired) and stamped them in a light blue on white cardstock, punched them out and adhered together. Added some Nuvo Crystal Drops in the center.
I needed some leaves, so I got out my Gina K. Designs Stitched Leaves stamps, and die cut and stamped the leaved.
The With Sympathy stamp is also Gina K. Designs, but I can't find the name of it, so it may be discontinued. There is a beautiful sentiment for the inside that goes along with it.
Happy with the results, but sad for the circumstances.
