StampingJulie Sketch Inspired: Get Well & Happy Birthday

patterned occasions bandaid stamp card

When you’re not feeling well bright and cheery is the answer.  I combined the Sale-a-bration Patterned Occasions  stamp set with the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper to create this upbeat get well card.

I love to use the colors in a pack of designer series paper to inspire my creating, but you can also experiment with colors outside the paper pack’s color palette.  Here I combined the striped Tangerine Tango paper with Melon Mambo cardstock for a fresh new color combo.

StampingJulie CAS sketch challenge linky party

My sketch inspiration is from Friday’s CAS Sketch ChallengeYou can see more and play along here.  I kept this card super simple by following the sketch and adding simple interest with bright colors, a layered banner flag and a popped-up heart.  The heart was stamped from the Hearts-a-Flutter stamp set and punched with the Small Heart punch.

This card is also made with paper from the Sale-a-bration Sycamore Street pack and the Patterned Occasions stamp set.  Again I chose a coordinating color outside of the colors used in the pack.  In this case, I used the Pool Party patterned paper with a softer pink, Primrose Petals.

The scallop circle here is the mid-size doily from the Delicate Doilies Sizzlets Die from page 191 in the catalog.  When the catalog was printed the numbers got reversed and the largest die was listed as 1-3/8″ in diameter which is much smaller than what I wanted.  When I found out the correct dimensions were 3-1/8″ for the largest doily I ordered the die immediately!  As you can see here the mid-size doily layers perfectly with the 1-3/4″ circle punch.

Again, I used Friday’s sketch for inspiration, changed the orientation to landscape, tied the Primrose Petals stitched ribbon across the card and added a bitty flower from Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack with a Rhinestone.

Thoughts & Prayers get well soon card

Speedy Recovery Card

Thoughts & Prayers get well soon card A friend had out-patient shoulder surgery this week.  She has been in pain for quite a while, so she was excited to have this surgery in hopes of some relief.  I made this card to cheer her up and give her something pretty to look at while she is resting.

The flowers on this card are made with the flowers punched out with the Boho Blossoms Punch and the technique described in this tutorial below.

I punched five each of the different-sized blossoms from Regal Rose card stock, spritzed them with water, and layered them to create the three flowers.  I then adhered each to a matching Bravo Burgandy blossom base.

 The leaves were punched out of Summer Starfruit card stock with the Bird Builder Punch, the stems trimmed and  glued behind the flower base.

Thoughts & Prayers get well label

To create the greeting label, I started with a Whisper White card stock, and repeatedly stamped the doily  from the Delicate Doilies stamp set with Regal Rose ink stamped off once for a lighter application.  The greeting is from the Thoughts & Prayers stamp set stamped with a StazOn ink pad.

Thoughts & Prayers get well framelit

After I did all my stamping, I positioned the Labels Collection Framelit to surround the greeting, ‘taped’ it down with post-it notes to keep it in place, and ran it through my Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.  I also die cut a second label out of Regal Rose card stock of the larger-sized framelit for layering.

Thoughts & Prayers get well card polka dot background

To finish the card I embossed Whisper White card stock with the Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder, layered on Bravo Burgandy card stock, added ribbon and assembled the card.

This card reminds me of my friend’s gentle southern charm!  I hope she likes it.

Enjoy!  Julie
