Deepest Sympathy


I had a serious crafting session Friday night (makes me oh so happy!).  I had my iPad with lots of my favorite challenges up, Pandora radio, little boys playing outside and I was a happy girl.  Pat was with Collin at a birthday party.  A happy girl creating away.  I wanted to play along with Maile's last inspiration card at CASE Study.  My first card is the fully stamped card below.  It was okay, but I wasn't in love with it.  So then I started hunting through my patterned paper.  I die cut the leaves on the card above and then die cut some smaller flowers. I wasn't really thrilled so I looked through my patterned paper again and cut out this bloom from Crate Paper.  Much happier with the end result!  Happy Sunday my friends.  A day with no plans equals a perfect day for me!

  2. These are both beautiful. I love the one layer one, but maybe the other one better captures the dimension of Maile's card. I hope you don't need this many sympathy cards right now (although it's always good to have them on hand)!

  3. Since I'm not a stamper per say, I'm partial to the die cut card, but both are lovely.

  9. yep, top card for me too! I think it is the dotted olive paper against the pink that really stands out and I like the way you have positioned the pearls this time-in twos but still keeping this to 3-I think this really works and looks different to me. You probably have done it before but I am sure this little detail will sit in my head and appear on one of my cards soon-thanks for the inpsiration Lynn xx

  11. These are SO pretty! While I love them both, the first with the sweet polka dot leaves is my fave!

  12. I love the stamping on your one-layered card, Lynn - so pretty. The layout of your second card is fab and those sweet pearls are placed to perfection! :)
    Really hoping that I can find some dedicated crafting time soon; it's been over 2 weeks since I inked a stamp and I'm worried that my mojo will have gone walkies...!
    Hugs!
