Cure Girls

Hello Everyone,

I made some cards, one for my friend who is a breast cancer survivor and recently finished her treatments.  Now she is healing.  4 of the cards are now in a cardpack as a thank you gift to someone who is incredibly kind and compassionate and always doing kindnesses for me as well as for others.  I used 2 of these (yes, I made quite a few) are thank you cards for my Congressman and Governor for all they did to support my recent advocacy for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis.

I used Unity Stamps: Cure Girls Stamp Kit, and the hope stamp is from Unity’s February 2016 Kit of the Month.  My husband figured out looking at the “hope” card upside down, that it also spells joy.  So I have another use for this stamp.  Always a plus!

I used Stampin UP! Card stock, the thick cardstock as the base and their pretty designer series papers in Night of Navy.  The pink card I used Blushing Bride.  I used Momento Ink and Coconut Swirl card stock by Bazzil for the girls as I was using Copic Markers.  The copic markers I used are all sketch markers, B97, B02, R81, R85, YG13, YG17, Y11, Y08, V12, V17, E00, E02, E11, E97, E37, E29, E99, and E21.

Blue: Myalgic Encephalomyelitis                                                                                                         Purple: Fibromyalgia                                                                                                                            Pink: Breast Cancer                                                                                                                                Yellow: Gulf War Syndrome                                                                                                                 Green: Lyme Disease

I hope you enjoy looking

Steamin’ Hot!

We just celebrated Valentines Day.  And while I also made a more serious card for my husband, this one is by far too cute not to share.  I used copic markers, and Stampin’ UP! Cardstock. I used Tim Holtz Glossy Accents for the lenses of the glasses. Wink of Stella on the heart and a heart embellishment.  I used Unity Stamp Company’s “The Irony” stamp.  Thanks for looking

Cards of Sympathy

I recently made sympathy cards for 2 of my nieces who recently lost their mother (my sister). I made these cards vastly different because each of them is handling their loss quite differently. The angel is from Maria Girl and the flowers (done with copics) are from the November 2016 KOM titled Midnight Kisses.  Both stamp sets are from Unity Stamp Co.  The copics I used on the flowers are R20, RV21, RV23, G21, G24, G28, Y35, and Y38.
