TGIF! Who is ready for the weekend!? I'm taking a break from house painting this weekend and hoping to get in my craft room finally! When I bought the stamp set called "Dear Rose" that I made today's card with, it was by a company called Fun Stamper's Journey. My dear friend, Donna, was a consultant with FSJ and I have always tried so support her small business adventure, as she did mine. However, last November Fun Stamper's Journey merged with SpellbindersPaper Arts and WOW talk about a creative boom! They have been killing it lately with so many great stamp and die products, plus their monthly kits are AH-mazing! I even love the look and layout of their new website, it is so colorful, fresh and inspiring that it makes me want to create (and buy) all the things! But, we've been so busy re-doing our house that all creative purchases have
been put on hold. . . for now. . .
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Neenah Solar White smooth cardstock. I cut a 5 1/4" x 4" sheet of white cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot using the Garden Trellis Texturized Embossing folder. I adhered this embossed sheet directly to the cad front. Using the Gina Marie Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Nesting dies, I die cut a piece of Calypso Coral cardstock and then mounted a sheet of white cardstock on it. Using Calypso Coral ink, I stamped the sentiment "Get Well Soon" in the lower right corner. I stamped two roses on Calypso Coral cardstock in Basic Gray ink and die cut the roses using the coordinating Dear Rose die. I adhered them to the center of the card using 3M foam adhesive. I stamped two leaves in Basic Gray ink on white cardstock and adhered them underneath the roses using 3M foam adhesive. Lastly, I added a coat of Clear Wink of Stella to the roses and leaves for added sparkle.
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative weekend!
