Penned & Painted

Penned & Painted

Hello Friends,

I woke up this morning with the Penned & Painted stamp set calling to me.  Have you ever had that happen to you?  The stamp set won't get out of your head until you create something beautiful. That was Penned & Painted this morning.   Plus, the Penned & Painted stamp set is Retiring.  Which means that it will only be available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST or until May 31, 2017.

About Today's Card

 I wanted a soft outline, so stamped all 3 layers including the outline with the same color on each flower.  It's a stamping technique called 3-step stamping.  Each stamped layer builds on the other.

Today's color combo is Cherry Cobbler, Tangerine Tango and Old Olive.  These colors together are a bit of a stretch for me, but I think that they turned out lovely.  It was the Color Challenge this week on Splitcoast Stampers.

After stamping all the flowers and leaves I decided to add just a little more happiness, so I sprinkled in Tangerine Tango dots.

The "sloppy bows" are 5 layers of Whisper White Baker's Twine.

 

Here for You

Some friends of ours have spent the last several days at the hospital for a unexpected medical emergency.  What do you say at a time like that?  The Here for You stamp set covers so many hard situations.  Here's what my card says inside.

Comfort & Healing and Heart Hope

Comfort & Healing and Heart Hope

 

Hello Friends,

My heart filled with dread recently when I found out that my mother was diagnosed with AFib (an irregular heart beat that can be felt as a fluttering or thumping in your chest).  In a nutshell, the major risk with AFib is a stroke.  Mom has a little dog named Bella, so I thought that it would be appropriate to make her a card with the Bella & Friends stamp set.  But my card focus is  Comfort & Healing and Heart Hope.

 

Bella & Friends Stampin' Up!

 Tips and Tricks

 I spent a couple of minutes fussy cutting my dog, so that I could frame her with hope and a heart which a die cuts from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies set.  I love that set!  There's just something really playful about the swirly, whirly dies.

The bold and happy Cucumber Crush looks so fabulous with the softer blue and yellow.  I'm going to miss Cucumber Crush.  It's a 2015-2017 In Color, which means that its days are numbered.  The Stampin' Up! Retirement list is schedule to come out on April 10 which means Bye, Bye Cucumber Crush and its friends Mint Macaron, Delightful Dijon, Watermelon Wonder and Tip Top Top.  The matching washi tape is from the Affectionately Yours package.

For a the look of sunshine, I splashed a bit of So Saffron behind my Comfort and Healing sentiment (Flourishing Phrases stamp set) and sprinkled just a little bit more with a splatter stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.

Coloring Tips

Don't be afraid to mix mediums when coloring.  I colored Bella with Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pens, so that her fur looks soft and cuddly.   But I wanted her collar to be a little bolder and brighter.  That's where markers take over.  The Cucumber Crush marker compliments the Cucumber Crush Stitched Circle and the Affectionately Yours Washi Tape.

Handmade Card

 I carried the Sunshine Wishes and the Flourishing Phrases through to the inside of my card to let Mom know that I love her and think about her more often than I say.

Color Throwdown

Color Challenge

Color Challenges are a good jumping off point if you find yourself stuck in your card making endeavors.   Today's color challenge of light yellow, blue and green is from Color Throwdown.   I chose So Saffron, Soft Sky and Cucumber Crush.
