sympathy card

Hello!  Is it cold and rainy where you are?  It is here and has been this whole day.  It makes me want to crawl back into bed and take a nice nap!  I have been feeling a little uninspired these past few days.  Maybe the weather has something to do with it. 

Today, I have a sympathy card to share.  I had to make a few recently so I thought I'd add a couple to my shop too.  It's sometimes kind of sudden when you need a sympathy card and I like the idea of giving something that is handmade instead of store bought. 

I stamped the sentiment from Winnie & Walter's the Big, Bold & Comfort.  I think this is the only set you'll need when you make sympathy cards!  It has literally so many word combinations you can make.  Once I stamped the sentiments, I went back in with my Copic multiliner to fill in the words so that it is nice and dark.

The floral accent is also from a Winnie & Walter set called Addie's Blooms.  It is nice and simple.  I colored it in with some light Copic purples and accented it darker with a Prismacolor pencil because I didn't want the marker colors to run through to the other side of the kraft cardstock.

In the end, I like that it is simple but still very thoughtful.

Okay, hopefully I'll have more cards to share soon.  I did finish one today even though I was feeling very sluggy.  Haha, ever feel like that?  Or is it just me?

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Snowman gift card holder

Hi!  I was planning to post this last night but I was just too tired to write or think of complete sentences.  It's been a busy week with the boys on Fall break and still trying to finish up a bunch of crafts.  I have been trying to make some crocheted crafts to put in my Etsy shop and finally I'm done with one.  It's a crocheted snowman that can hold a gift card or anything actually that is small enough to fit in the pouch.  The pattern is designed by ChiWei Ranck of One Dog Woof and can be found HERE . Here's the little snowman with his arms folded over in the front to look like he is hugging the card.  I added this fun card that I stamped.  You can definitely add in a gift card too behind this card. The gift card reaches under his nose. This is how the little opening of the pouch looks.  I hope I can make more of these little guys.  These would be so cute for teachers and I think it would be easy to put a little wire through the hat and then use it as

all occasion tags

Hello!  I have more tags to share today.  I kept these simple too to be used on most any occasion.  They have no sentiments on them. I used MFT's cute Birdie Brown Bitty Bears stamp set.  These were on my wish list for a while and I kept going back and forth about purchasing them especially because I wanted the dies to cut them out too and those were very expensive!  Geez, remember the old days when we used to fussy cut everything out by hand? This is the next 6 tags.  There's also a cute bear with a Santa hat that I didn't include in the photos.  This was a pretty quick project since I kept the bears white!  Not much coloring on these tags but they are still cute and colorful. I thought I was going to be doing more stamping but I've actually gone on to crochet more!  I've made 3 more crochet projects that I'll share soon.  Sometimes I do get the urge to color something but these days it's so much easier to pick up some yarn and my hook and crochet

coffee cup shaped cards

Hi!  I think after this post I may need a little nap!  My right shoulder is actually feeling worn out from all the typing and photo editing I've been doing lately.  And this cooler weather is making me drowsy.  It's getting cold here already! I made a bunch of these coffee shaped cards using a die from Honey Bee Stamps .  It's a cute coffee set but the die is extra long so it would probably help to have a longer platform to diecut.  I just have the standard sized one so I would pass it through once in my Big Shot and then rotate the cardstock and die carefully to cut the other end.  Manageable but the longer platform would be more convenient! I embossed the front of the card with some pretty snowflakes.  I think this is a Sizzix embossing folder.  And then stamped the coffee sleeve with some Lawn Fawn stamps. This is the inside.  The gift card slot does not come with this coffee cup die set.  I cut that opening with one of the dies from MFT's gift card dies.
