Sitting Here

Here’s my cat, Max, waiting for you to come sit with him and give him some love!  I stamped this scene from Sitting Here on watercolor paper in Stazon ink and watercolored.  The cat, pillows and pot of plants are stamped separately and fussy cut.

I went around each piece with a black marker and then created the scene.  The top of the card is stamped with the leaves from Sheltering Tree (you could pick any greenery you have) and is on a piece of Calypso Coral Patterned paper.  The sentiment is from Flourishing Phrases.  Hugs, Fran

Detailed Floral Thinlit

I did some card stock inlay with the Detailed Floral Thinlit and created 3 cards.  I die cut the Thinlit once in Blushing Bride, Pink Pirouette and So Saffron and 3 times in Whisper White and Pear Pizazz.  Pop out all the pieces on the White but leave the colors in the their places. Back the Whisper White pieces on a double sided adhesive sheet and fill in the design with the colors.  I use a paper piercer to pick up the pieces.  It seems tedious, but once you get going it is pretty fast.  Once all the pieces are in place, use the die that cuts out the top of the design (that squiggly line piece!) and you are ready to make your cards.  The more colors you use, the more cards you can make!

This is a Heavy White 4 1/4 x 11 base

This is on a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 So Saffron base.

And this one is on a 4 1/4 x 11 Pink Pirouette card.  They are stamped with sentiments from Flourishing Phrases andI tied  with Blushing Bride ribbon.  Hope you try it!  Hugs, Fran

Beautiful new set!  Flourishing Phrases with a matching die 🙂  I made this sympathy card using the Blooms & Bliss Designer Series paper.  I started by die cutting a large, open oval and adhering the flourish to the oval.

The vellum is tucked behind one side and pearls are the finishing touch.  Hugs, Fran
