There are three things besides taxes that happen in life…. babies, weddings, and death. At some point, we all need one of these cards. Unfortunately for me, I need a sympathy card. My cousin had been trying to get a hold of me yesterday to no avail. Between work and golf, I was not around and she didn’t have my cell phone number. So this morning I found an email to telling me her mom had passed away. They had just put her in hospice and knew the time was coming to say goodbye. She was my mother’s sister-in-law and this leaves my mother’s brother as the last living siblings of eight. It is so sad to see that generation leaving us.
I found the perfect stamp that was in the Occasions Catalog and will be in the Annual Catalog. So if you didn’t get it, you will have another chance. The stamp set I am referring to is Southern Serenade. You will find this stamp set so versatile that you will be reaching for it. It has wonderful words, but no sympathy words. I used Rose Wonder which will be retiring. I absolutely love that stamp set for the words and beautiful rose. If you have not purchased that stamp set, you need to order it today! Just click here to order all the Retired items. https://www.stampinup.com/ECWeb/product/140697/rose-wonder-photopolymer-stamp-set
I have started the 365 Day Challenge which means you can win this card. To participate you need to make a comment about that day’s post. You will be entered into a drawing to receive that card in the post. I will announce the winner the next day and you can email me your address. This is not the end of the Challenge. Each month all entries will be entered into a monthly drawing for an embellishment. Note: If you make a comment you are entered into the drawing. I announce that winner on the first of the month. So have fun!
It is time for another Technique Video which I call Technique Wednesday. I hope you enjoyed the Blog Hop yesterday. This is why you are getting this technique on Thursday. I wanted you to have time to cruise the different post. I thought the projects were awesome. Today’s technique is using Baby Wipes and your reinkers. You will learn how to use Baby Wipes and then you can make the card to go with this technique. You will find the complete instructions in my newsletter. So make sure you subscribe to it which can be done with the pop-up.
Welcome to our Pals Blog Hop, May 2018. This month we’ll be “Stepping Up with Textures or Techniques.” What’s that? Projects that are “stepped up” by using textures or fun techniques. Who knows, maybe both! Join us in the fun while we inspire you to “step up” your creations.
You may be starting the hop here or you may be coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
I want you to use your imagination and picture yourself in Paris sitting at a French cafe. It is a beautiful spring day in Paris. You have nowhere to go and can enjoy your wine or cappuccino as you watch the people. You can easily recreate this scene with the Mediterranean Moments stamp set. It has the perfect sidewalk cafe on this stamp set. Use your embossing paste to create a textured background that resembles a brick wall.
This card will surely take the receiver away to a peaceful moment in time which is perfect for their birthday.
Paper: Remember I always use Whisper White as my base.
Embellishment: What embellishment do you like to use?
Berry Burst Ribbon
Embossing Paste and Pattern Mask
