Masculine Card Blog Hop

This month's Paper Wings Blog Hop has the theme of Masculine Cards. Paper Wings is an ALL Angel Company group where can get inspiration for cards and projects made with our products!

For this card, I used one of retiring (sadly) stamp sets called Happy Day. I colored it with Watercolor Pencils and layered with our Winchester paper pack. I also used our Labels Four Nestabilities dies - I just LOVE these things! I am quickly becoming addicted (and a collector!) of them.

Be sure to visit the blogs of the other participants to get even MORE inspiration for those Masculine Cards!

Gerbera Daisy Nestabilities Style

I was so surprised to see the Gerbera Daisy stamp on the list of stamps to be discontinued for the new catalog! The card here is for my 'Farewell' workshop later this month. Participants will make 5 cards using some of my FAVORITE retiring stamp sets.

To make this card I stamped with the Tuxedo Memento Stamp pad, colored with COPICS, and the diecuts are made from the Nestabilities Labels 5 set! I used the fabulous and bright paper pack - More Mimi - on this card!

With Sympathy

As I was going through some things today, I found a box of cards I saved from when my mother passed away a little over a year ago. It made me remember how comforting those handmade sympathy cards were during that tragic time.

You don't realize how much it is appreciated - but it is so very comforting to receive a handmade card during the difficult time of loss.

I have created a simple Sympathy card to share with you today. I used the Bazzill Monochromcatic Violet papers, Lavender Sachet and Violette Palette Ink Pads, and stamps from Swirly Gigs (soon retiring) and With Sympathy. You can't really tell in the picture - but I also highlighted a bit with our clear Stardust Glitter Pen
