Grateful for…

Hi there!

There are so many things and people that I am grateful for in my life!!!  Today I created a little card to give to my sister Kim…she takes such great care of me!!  She is always doing so much for me!!!


This little “thank you” card features the Blossoming Buds Stamp Set and the coordinating Blossom Icons Die at Paper Smooches.

I stamped these adorable blossoming buds on watercolor paper using Black Onyx VersaFine ink.  After heat-setting the ink, I did a light Tumbled Glass inking of the background around the stamped image.  I then colored the flowers and leaves with the following Tim Holtz distress inks:  Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry, Mowed Lawn, and Spiced Marmalade.

I created the card base using the Pinpoint Scalloped circles die from Memory Box and inked it using the Tumbled Glass distress ink.  Here’s a tip:  to leave that white border around the edge, ink the die while it is still in the die.  I then cut a label die from Elizabeth Craft’s Katie Label set.  I inked it with Spiced Marmalade and then stamped the “Grateful” and “for you” stamps out of the Blossoming Buds stamp set.

I used foam tape to pop up the floral stamped piece to give the card a little bit of dimension.  The curved design of the floral stamp works perfectly on the circle card.  I’m pretty happy with the way this turned out so I’m going to be entering it into the Paper Smooches weekly challenge!

I hope you enjoyed today’s project!  Please let me know if you have any questions!  Thanks for stopping by!  Until next time, Be Happy!!!
