Daisy cards

Friday again! Today I have a few encouragement cards to share. I made 5 using the same technique, but different colors. I am always fascinated by the emboss resist technique and so that is what happened on these cards.


Using the Craft-a-Flower Daisy die set, I cut the flowers from different colors, but all of them got the base layer cut out of vellum. I wanted the centers to still show the background, however in a muted way.


I stamped all my panels with Versamark ink and an old Stampin Up background stamp and then embossed the stripes with white embossing powder. The stamp is meant to make these sort of distressed looking stripes and I rather like the effect.


Then using different Memento inks from my stash, I inked the backgrounds, leaving the bottom left-hand corners uninked. 


I added the panels to white cardbases and arranged my daisies in that bottom left-hand corner so that they formed the transition between inked and uninked background.


I completed each card with the "prayers" die cut sentiment, cut out of white cardstock. Each one of them was then committed to the mailman for different recipients.

Rings of cardstock

Today I am here again with another sympathy card. This one went to a friend in Florida who lost her husband. I used another technique that I learned in the "Crushing on Cardstock" course that I did recently.


The poppy is one of my Crafty-a-Flower die sets. They make such gorgeous flowers. I cut the concentric circles in the black and grey cardstock with infinity circle dies and used an embossing folder to emboss a piece behind the smallest circle. I painted the edges of the circles with gold metallic watercolor.


I completed my card by adding the poppy to the center and added a die cut sentiment cut from gold foil cardstock. I tried to keep it flat so that it would go well through the mail.

I cannot believe that it is Friday again and also that we are in the last quarter of 2021!! But it is so. Today is Friday and so I am back with a project to share with you. Today I have a special digi. It was a pencil sketch that a special lady drew and I converted into a digi.
