SC 065/12…

Can you believe t?  We actually had rain last night & boy it cool this morning, but hey who cares – Rain, we have Rain!!!!!!  A great day for stampin & catching up on all those little projects that we tend to lend for “Ron” – later on!  Rain!!!!  did, I mention we have Rain!!!!!!!!!

Our challenge this week over at Sunny Challenges & Creations is to create a “Sympathy” card along with the great sketch layout!  This is a type of card that we don’t like creating, but is always good to have in your stash.

Measurements –
Base Card – Bashful Blue – 8 1/4″ x 4 1/8″ or 21cm x 15cm
Layer 1 – Whisper White – 3 3/4″ x 2 1/2″ or 9.5cm x 6.5cm
Layer 3 – Whisper White – 3 1/2″ x 3 3/4: or 9cm x 9.5cm

Supplies –
Stamp Set – Just Believe, Petite Pairs
Ink – Nil
Cardstock – Whisper White, Bashful Blue
Embossing Folder – Perfect Polka Dots
Punches – Scallop Trim Border, Oval
Embosslits – Beautiful Wings
Ribbon – 5/8″ Organza – Whisper White
Accessories – Snail Adhesive, Pearls, Stampin’ Up! Markers – Rose Red & Wild Wasabi, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dots, Bone Folder, Big Shot

I wanted to use a colour I haven’t touched in a lot time, so it was basically a toss up between the new “In Colours” or Bashful Blue, which won in the end.

I inked my main image with Stampin’ Markers of Wild Wasabi & Rose Red & stamped directly onto the larger piece of Whisper White Cardstock. I did this twice, with the 2nd time stamping a little lower onto the Cardstock, the second time around.


The smaller piece of Whisper White was run through the Big Shot with the Embossing Folder – Perfect Polka Dots, punched along one of the edges with the Oval Punch & adhered to the bottom of the larger piece of Whisper White Cardstock with Snail Adhesive.
I adhered a piece of Ribbon towards the bottom of the embossed piece.  The whole piece was then adhered to theBase Card – Bashful Blue – with Snail Adhesive.  I stamped my sentiment with Rose Red & Wild Wasabi Markers, punched out the Oval Punch & adhered to the top of the Ribbon.  I tied a small bow & adhered to the bottom part of the punched oval with a Mini Glue Dot.

A scap piece of Whisper White Cardstock was run through the Big Shot with the Beautufil Wings Embosslits Folder, wings curled a little with my Bone Folder & attached ramdomly to the card with Tombow Multipurpose Glue.

??To finish the card, I applied small Pearls to the flowers & also to the centre of the butterflies.

All in all a very simple & easy card, but one I am happy with.

Don’t forget to pop on over to Sunny Challenges & Creationsto check out what Gwen, Kris & our Weekly Guest Designer Alison have created.  We would love for you to join us this week.

“Who Me………….”

In finishing, I thought I would share with you my little helper this past week.  I’ve had a big year with weddings & receptions, so all the help is very much appreciated, no matter what form it may be.  She usually gets into a little mischief when she thinks she has been neglected long enough. 

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

  1. Your card is gorgeous Vicky. I think the colours are beautiful and I love the added ribbon.
    I don't think I need a helper like yours, I can get into that much mess all by myself.
