Hello! Michelle here.  I've been itching to ink up the stamp set, Friendship Floral Heart!  I opted for one of the smaller floral cluster and used it to stamp the background. I shaded the flowers and colored the background with Copic Markers in shades R00, R21, R32, R43; RV10, RV02, RV04; YR24; YG11, YG61; BG96. I splattered some white and gold paint and stickles glitter glue. 


I die cut Hello Banner Script Die, with a metallic adhesive backed paper I adhered to cardstock before cutting.  I inked up two strips of cardstock with the same Copic colors to match the flowers. I embossed the sentiments with rose gold embossing powder.  


After I assembled the card I scattered some sequins. Thanks for stopping by for peek! Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

Get Well Soon
by Melissa Rusk

Today I decided to take a little break from Christmas cards and wanted to share a get well card I made for a friend recently.


I stamped the beautiful iris from the new Sentimental Iris stamp set and colored it with Copic Markers. I die cut it with the coordinating die set.

To create the background of my card I used the new Distress Oxide inks in the colors Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers. I pressed one of the colors onto my craft mat and sprayed the ink with water a few times. Then I pressed my water color paper into the ink, keeping it to one side of my paper. Then I dried the first layer with a heat tool and started the process again with the second color. I repeated the inking and drying process with the two colors until I got a background that I liked.


I stamped the get well soon from the same stamp set and then put the card together. To finish it off I created some dots with Wendy Vecchi's enamel accents.

Thanks for stoping by the blog today!

In My Prayers
by Melissa Rusk

Happy Saturday! Today I have a sweet get well card to share with you using some of the latest release from Memory Box. Let's get started!


For this card I used the Leafy Ring die and cut it from white paper. I put some green card stock behind it to make the leaves pop. I die cut the Perky Prayers die in a purple and it fits perfectly in the middle of the Leafy Ring die. I then stamped in purple a saying from the Prayers Sentiments stamp set in a coordinating purple ink. 


I glued this on to two different purple pieces of paper on my card base. For the gems I didn't have any in the right color so I used some clear gems and colored them with a purple Copic marker to make it all match. 

Thanks for stopping by the blog, have a great weekend!

Feel Better Soon
by Sherry Hester

Hi everyone! Hope this has been a great week so far! I thought I would share a get well card this time around. This little bunny just looks like he cares!

Get Well Soon - 1

I cut a piece of white card stock 5-1/4" x 3-3/4", and softly sponged Peeled Paint and Faded Jeans Distress inks on the left side. I die cut the Sketch Bunny Background die in white and inked it with Old Linen and Gathered Twigs Distress Inks. The Bamboo Shoot was also cut in white and sponged lightly with Peeled Paint.

Get Well Soon - 3

I adhered the bamboo shoots to the back of the bunny, then added foam tape so that the bunny and the shoots would pop.  I stamped the phrase using two stamps from the Hope and Thanks set in Versafine Black Onyx ink, added three of the mini butterflies and scattered a few sequins. I then mounted this piece to the card base with foam tape.

Get Well Soon - 2

Enjoy the rest of your week, and thanks so much for stopping by!
