.... Hello again! Yesterday I shared some sympathy cards I've had to make. Today, I'm sharing some more. This is the first:
Stamps: MFT - Deepest Sympathy; Gina K - Fancy Feathers
Inks: Gina K - Lovely Lavender, Ocean Mist, Soft Stone; Versafine Claire - Nocturne
Dies: Gina K - Fancy Feathers, Master Layouts 8, Lots of Dots
Accessories: White & Black Card; SU Card - Smoky Slate; Silver Satin Mirri Card
I'm submitting this card to Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies - HLSAGD#09.
This card was inspired by the card Gina K made in a five minute video using the Fancy Feathers die. I changed up the colours, the feather used, the direction of the dots and the stamps used. Inside the card, I cut a mat layer of black card. On the white panel I stamped two of the smaller feathers and added a simple greeting in black.
This is the second:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps - Fine Feathers; Waffle Flower - With Sympathy Duo
Inks: Gina K - Lovely Lavender, Ocean Mist, Stormy Sky; Versafine Claire - Nocturne
Dies: WMS - Fine Feathers
Accessories: White & Grey Card; Gina K Stencil - Lush Leaves; Silver Thread; Crystal Gem; Copic Marker
I'm submitting this card to Happy Little Stamper Stencil Challenge - HLSSC#09.
I started by stencilling a background pattern onto white card - I simply used the ink left over on the brushes. I trimmed the panel to size and added a black border to the top and bottom with a black Copic marker. I stamped the message in black ink and added some wings below with a tiny gem in the middle. I finished the front by adding two feathers - one stamped in blue and one in lilac. The stamp set and dies from WMS are both discontinued. For the inside, I cut a piece of white card which I edge with a black marker. I then stamped a simple message and added another of the feathers to the corner of the panel.
And this is the final card:
Stamps: Gina K - Bold Bloom, So Many Sentiments; WMS - Frame It
Inks: Versafine Claire - Nocturne
Dies: Gina K - Master Layouts 2
Accessories: White & Black Card; Copic Markers; Sakura Stardust Pens
I'm submitting this card to Never-Before-Used-Schtuff - NBUS#54 - this is the first time I've used that beautiful flower.
I used my MISTI to stamp the image on white card, removed it and coloured it with Copic markers. I returned the image to the MISTI and restamped with Versafine Claire Nocturne ink - such a deep black. I used a stitched edge die to cut out the image, stamped a sentiment below, adhered it to a black mat and glued it to the front of an A2 (US size) white note card. I added a touch of sparkle to parts of the flowers and leaves with Sakura Stardust pens. Inside the card, I cut a mat layer of black card. On the white panel I stamped a simple sentiment and added the flower in the corner.
I mentioned yesterday, that these have been the hardest cards I've had to make. They were all for my family. My lovely cousin, Neil, died on Monday 18 September - he was only 57 years old.
