The Best is Yet to Come


Today I want to share a card I made a few weeks ago for a very good friend, Val. She’s also a talented crafter and I thought I would surprise her with a card I made just for her.

You’ll recognise the lovely flower from Birthday Blooms, all in Wisteria Wonder and Wild Wasabi tones… I made the stripey banner with the stripes mask. The sentiment is from “Best Thoughts”.

Floral Thanks in 3 colours – New Catalogue 2015-2016


The new 2015-2016 Stampin’Up! Catalogue is available, and it’s full of beautiful stamps, dies, punches, ribbons and so many other lovely products!

As a demonstrator, we got the privilege to order a few products before the official release, and today’s cards use the stunning flower of “You’ve got this” stamp set.

I chose to colour the flowers with alcohol markers, but you could totally play with watercolour (wich I intent to do later) to get a softer effect. I made three cards, in yellow tones, peach tones and velvet red tones. All three cards are made the same, mated on kraft cardstock and a soft background of little leaves from the Perpetual Calendar stamp set stamped with Baked Brown Sugar ink. The flowers are fussy cut and mounted with foam adhesive. A few rhinestones coloured with alcohol markers complete the cards.

In yellow:

Thinking of you – in blue

As soon as my friend came for a craft party at my home with this lovely flower stamp, I knew I wanted to use these little rhinestones I had in my stash…

Sympathy cards are never easy to make, I hope this one could tell to the person who received it how much I cared…
