Sympathy cards are the hardest cards to make because you know someone is hurting from the loss of someone that was dear to them. I made this card to send to my friend who's husband had just recently loss his mother.
Here is what I used:
Stamp set: Heartfelt Blooms (SAB 2018) and Flourishing Phrases
Card stock: Thick Whisper White, Sweet Sugarplum
Inks: Smoky Slate, Sweet Sugarplum and Stampin' Blends
When the new annual catalog came out last July, I spotted this stamp set and knew it would be on my list to have, as I use to decorate cakes for awhile when my daughters' were young. They loved it when Mom have left-over icing to have on either graham crackers or vanilla wafers! Makes me want to get my cake decorating supplies out and make a real cake now!!
Now I made this "no calorie" cake for my uncles' upcoming birthday, I hope he likes it!!
Here are the details:
Stamp sets: Icing on the Cake and Stylized Birthday
Card stock: Thick Whisper White, Flirty Flamingo and Whisper White
Inks: Calypso Coral (I forgot I was using Flirty Flamingo) and Pear Pizzazz
It's not a hard card to make and I will be using this set some more in the future!
Here is the second of the three Valentine cards that I made. I believe I was inspired by a fellow demonstrator, who posted her's on the FB group I belong to for demonstrators, I searched but couldn't find her name.
For this card I used:
Stamp set: Beautiful Bouquet and Bloomin' Love
Framelits: Bouquet Bunch
Card stock: Thick Whisper White, Whisper White, Real Red
Ink: Always Artichoke and Crumb Cake

I really like how this one came out, I think the teacher will too!
So sorry for not posting for awhile. My oldest daughter was pregnant and had high blood pressure and on bed rest for the last 5 weeks. This morning she had a planned C-section and we welcome little Bradley Joseph into our family! We are thrilled and we now have another redhead too!
Now before Christmas, a couple of higher up demonstrators shared a PDF of a Christmas money card holder, I printed my directions off from Connie Stewart's website. If you want the directions you can find them there.
We always give our daughters and son-in-law money because that way they can use it then or save it for a rainy day! My son-in-law told me I should sell them because they look so good!
Since I was making them for family, I used retired DSP and card stock, they don't care if it is current stock or not :)
Here is what I used:
Card stock: Cherry Cobbler, Hello Honey and Whisper White
Stamp set: Tin of Tags-retired
Ink: Hello Honey and Cherry Cobbler
DSP: Presents & Pinecones-retired
Laying Oval Stitched Shapes Framelits
Just by changing the DSP, you could easily do this for any occasion too!
I stamped this image and colored it in about two weeks ago and just couldn't decide on how to use it, so this card really did take only five minutes to make. I was just playing around with a retired embossing folder and decided to make this card. On this Santa, I did a lot less coloring than the first one I shared last week with you.
