Comfort cards

Hello!  I'm getting a little bit sleepy early this morning.  Trying to kick my coffee habit.  I only drank a cup a day but trying to switch back to green tea.  Ha, I just yawned. 

I made a set of cards totally opposite my happy cards in my previous post.  I didn't know what I wanted to make so just grabbed my newest Winnie & Walter stamp sets, Addie's Garden and The Big, the Bold and Comfort.  Also went back to my love of kraft cardstock and kept everything simple even though there was actually lots of fussy cutting involved and touching up of the sentiments.

Here is the set of 5 comfort cards.  I kind of love them actually.  I love how simple the flower is and how bold the sentiment is.

I first made the flower in this kind of super light yellow, beige-y color but didn't think it stood out much against the kraft. 

Here's the second beige-y color flower. 

Then I changed to a light pink color for the flower.  I think I like that better just a little bit.

I like this sentiment a lot.  I stamped each sentiment and I guess my ink pad is running low so the black wasn't quite bold enough for me.  I went and colored in every sentiment with my Copic multiliner.  Even the small font sentiments!

I stamped right over the flower stems too.  Then filled the sentiments in.

Yawning again.  Anyway, that's it for me.  I think I might switch gears a bit and do some sewing again or play around with some felt.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

What an awesome stamp set, it's always hard to find the right "comfort" card. Yep, lots of fussy cutting, but it was well worth it.

Wow you colored over the stamps! Those typewritten letters look difficult. So pretty! I think I like the pink flower too. I think I need a 2nd cup of coffee some days in the afternoons. Or a nap.
