Hi everyone! Whew, I’m slow editing pictures and getting a post written! I had these two cards made before Breanna passed away. Thank you all so much for your kind comments, cards and emails. Your expressions of sympathy and prayers mean so much! I had no idea and I wish I still had no idea! It still doesn’t feel real or believable. The sorrow comes in waves and at times it feels like my heart is being squeezed. All I know to do is carry on…love harder, appreciate more and be thankful to God for the time we do have together!
I had fun using this new poppystamps Stained Glass Poinsettia die two ways. This card is the die cut four times. One time I made sure the pieces stayed intact and colored the flower petals and rays with Copic Sketch Markers. Then I glued the other three frames on top and filled them with Ranger Glossy Accents. Very fun! My fingers got a little tired of squeezing the little bottle. I couldn’t find my big bottle. lol
I stamped a background panel with one of the stamps from the new poppystamps Joyous Christmas Wishes sentiment set. I really ❤ this set.
Then the JOY oval is from the new Memory Box stamp set and die set Spirit of Christmas. Another fabulous set for images to color and sentiments!
Both cards are A2 size.
This one I used the new Holiday Glitter 6×6 cardstock pad and the new Christmas Plaid 6×6 paper pad.
I die cut the new Stained Glass Pinsettia die in metallic gold cardstock, covered the back with scor-tape, then pieced in the petals and rays that I cut in the glitter pad cardstocks.
Memory Box Merry Christmas Noted Script die for the sentiment on this one. I die cut it twice and glued together. I didn’t want it to be too thick.
I die cut the poppystamps Pointed Rectangle Frames in metallic gold to frame the front.
I have a package of these gold ‘things’, like 3 sizes in the pack. I used one for the center of the poinsettia. I think either of the gold cardstocks would work too. I almost left it red!
That’s it for me today… let me know if you have any questions. My brain feels cobweb – y!
I have felt your ❤ felt prayers and appreciate it so much!
