Hello everyone! This is my second post for the day . . . wahoo!!! Wasn't yesterday so much fun? I can't believe all of the amazing ideas! I hope you are all super inspired ~ I know I am! :) So today is the My Creative Time ~ Sneak Peek Week : Day 2. And the Design Team is showcasing a BEAUTIFUL new stamp set "Bloom Where You Are Planted".
I think we are all pretty used to creating the fun, happy, cheerful and cute projects. But today, I decided to show you a card for the tougher times in life. This is a sympathy card. I hate that we have to ever make them at all, but I have found they often tend to be the most meaningful to the ones who receive them. So hopefully this can give you some inspiration.
All of the papers for this card are from the Die Cuts With A View ~ Serenity paper stack. You can't see it very well, but the green background piece is a pretty, shimmery paper. Many of the DCWV paper stacks have them and I just think they're gorgeous.
This beautiful calendar (my favorite) is cut with the My Creative Time ~ XL Label Die. The calendar itself is from the My Creative Time ~ Whimsical Calendar Days stamp set. The beautiful flowers are from this brand new, soon to be released, Bloom Where You Are Planted stamp set. I colored them in with Copic ~ Sketch Markers. How do you think I did? I am totally new to using my Copics and definitely need to learn a little more technical stuff like shading and shadowing techniques, but I think I did pretty well for my first real project. I used some pop dots behind the calendar and the flowers for extra dimension. The ink is black ~ Ranger Archival ink.
Shhhhh . . . this lovely sentiment is a sneak peek before the official Sneak Peek of another new stamp set that I will tell you about tomorrow. ;) The ink is black ~ Ranger Archival Ink.
