Deepest Sympathy Card

Hello and thanks for visiting today.  I created a sympathy card for my brother-in law.  He lost his brother recently and this weekend is the memorial.

I used tumbled glass distressed ink, applied it to my craft mat, added water and dipped the watercolor paper several times, drying between layers.

I took the Wild Flowers and Wings SMAK Kit and Imperfection is Beauty , Donna Downing stamps and stamped them on another watercolor paper several times so I could use the petals to layer on top of other petals.

I used a new brand of watercolor paints called CQR – they are very intense when dry.

I also took another butterfly stamps  from Unity.  Sorry, I can’t remember which kit it came from, never the less, I love that it has hearts on the wings.  and colored three to scatter them on the card.

I fussy cut all the elements and added some scattered twigs distress ink to the edges to make them pop and layered several petals to the flowers.

The leaves are also from the Wildflowers & Wings SMAK kit.

I also added a bit of distressed Stickles with a brush all around the flowers and butterflies.  I stamped the flower in scattered twigs on front of the envelope and the inside of the card.

The sentiment on the front  is from  May Hope Sustain You sentiment kit and for the inside I chose one of the sentiments from the sentiment kit Beautiful Life, Blessed Memories.

I’m entering this card in the Friends With Flair challenge at Unity Stamps.

Until next time, happy crafting!

You Color My World Greeting Card

For this month’s post, I made a card from the Happy Easter Collection.  When I saw the brush and the paint drip I knew I wanted to make an art related card.

I took the egg on the front and transformed it into a paint palette by adding different size circles and joining them to the original egg using Make The Cut.

I cut everything on my Cricut, including the watercolor paper so I could drop some watercolor and acrylic paint on the panel as well as the color wells.

On the inside of the card I followed the same theme using card stock with color drips and smears.

I stamped “You Color My World” with a Unity Stamp I just received in the mail yesterday.  Perfect timing, Unity!!

There is a tutorial to put this card together on the Kneedles and Knowledge blog for your convenience.  

This file also comes with a matching envelope.  I used the same color of cards stock as the front panel and the designer paper on inside panels for the envelope.

 Well, my friends, sad to say this is my last post as a Design Team member.  I want to personally thank Beth Fiscus for having faith in me and choosing me to be a member of the team for the six month duration.  I enjoyed using SVG Attic files and modifying them into different projects.  I will miss the excitement  of the blog hops for sure, but especially the camaraderie with all the people associated with SVG Attic!

I turned down the request to continue as a member because my husband and I will be traveling in the summer and, of course, I’ll be away from my computer!

 I hope I will be able to contribute in the future if there are other opportunities to join the team again!

Keep on crafting, I know I will!!

Thank a Techie Today

Have you had your computer break down and a nice Techie friend fixed it for you?  Now you can thank him or her with a card make especially for him/her!

I used the SVG Love Letters Circuitry Valentine card and modified it to a “Thanks” card using a free font and my Make The Cut Program.

I used glimmer cardstock for the background and it makes the word “thanks” pop!  I especially like the USB flashdrive that is included.  It looks so realistic!

I hope you get many ideas to use this card.  It was a blast creating it and it will come in handy when I need to thank my techie friend, again.

Thanks for stopping by to visit and have fun creating!!

SVG Cuts Dress Shop SVG Kit

I bought the Dress Shop SVG Kit from SVG Cuts last week and made the complete set.  I’ve decided that if I buy a kit, I must use it; even if it’s just for my own pleasure.

Here are some of the photos:
