I love the variety of sentiments in this stamp set. Unfortunately I have needed too many sympathy cards this summer – however this stamp set has helped put words on a card when I just can’t find the right ones to say.

The card base is a piece of Basic Black cardstock ( 11″ x 4-1/4″, scored at 5-1/2″) with a white insert so you can write in the card.

The front was created by sponging Misty Moonlight Ink onto a Mint Macaron piece of cardstock (4″ X 5-1/4″). Then I used a water painter to spray Night of Navy Ink onto the background. Once this was dry I used a wet paintbrush to pick up some White Pigment Ink and spray it across the card front.

Let the white ink dry as well. Then I stamped my sentiment using Versamark Ink and heat embossed it with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I added a tree, die cut from Basic Black cardstock (with adhesive sheet on the back) using the Majestic Mountain dies. I applied the tree to the cardstock, tied a piece of Black twine around twice and made a bow. Finally I used Tear and Tape to adhere the whole piece to the Basic Black card base. Embellish with Rhinestones as you wish.

To save some time (and a bunch of clean up) you can actually prepare a whole sheet of Mint Macaron cardstock with the blending and spraying. Then cut it into 4 pieces once it is dry.

What’s Cooking? handmade Card

When I saw this stamp set I immediately thought of about 10 friends who cook well, sell Epicure and Pampered Chef and who just like good food. The imagery of this stamp set makes it so easy to use, the shading/colouring is already done for you. My kind of stamping – maximum artistry for minimal effort.

The actual design of this card was inspired by two challenges:

I LOVE challenges because sometimes they give inspiration and sometimes they create a puzzle to solve. Either way it gets the brain working πŸ™‚

The only embellishment on this card are a few well placed ribbons. If you’ve seen me stamp before, I’m not a fan of loose ribbons or bows. This card is no exception. I used the twine to keep the ribbon secured in it’s loop and then I tied a bow in the twine. The whole thing is secured to the card by a mini glue dot and the label itself holding the bundle in place. To see exactly what I did – check out the video below.
