Happy Retirement

I made this card back in June but never got around to posting it on my blog. A man from our church retired and was moving to Arizona so the church had a party for him. This is the card I made for him. I don't know if there are mountains where he is going in Arizona but he will be leaving behind lots of mountains here in Washington state.





I didn't have the dies to cut out the car or camper so I fussy cut around them.



Stamps: Petite Places: Happy Camper (PTI)
Paper: White, Soft Stone (PTI), Old Olive, Bliss Blue (SU)
Ink: Enchanted Evening, Classic Kraft (PTI), Versafine Onyx Black
Other: Scene It: Mountain View die (PTI), Nestability circle die, dimensionals

Get Well Flowers in a Jar

Today I have a get well card.


I've seen others stamp the pint jar on acetate and I really wanted to do that but no matter what I tried it did not stamp crisp and it never really dried.  So I die cut the jar from white cardstock and stamped it in black. I then stamped the flower stems and amazingly they lined up pretty well with the stamping on the card.  Next I watercolored a little Aqua Mist to look like water but the SU Whisper White paper did not take the water well and swelled up immediately.  So then I thought I would die cut the jar once again from acetate and just place that over the top of the white cardstock jar. I'm pretty happy with that solution. You can see how it reflects in the pic below.




Lastly I stamped the sentiment and added some Rainstones.  

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!
