Pink Thinking of You Card

Filed under: OperationWriteHome — Tags: , , — patq3266 @ 11:39 pm

Hi Everyone,

I made this card using the “grass” from the With Sympathy stamp set from PaperTrey Ink. The stamped flowers are from the same set, but the cut out flowers are from the Boho Blossom punch and the One of a Kind stamp set, both from Stampin Up!. I really wish they made more of these types of stamp/punch combinations.

Enjoy!

Operation Write Home Blog Hop

Hi Everyone,

This is my card for the Operation Write Home Blog Hop.  I hope you enjoy my site.  The main blog for the hop is http://www.owhstarsandstamps.org.  This is my first blog hop ever, so I hope it’s successful and is the beginning of many.  I’m so happy that I can contribute to this great organization.

Green/Purple Thinking of You

Green/Purple Thinking of You


This is such a fun and easy card to make.  I cut green DSP paper from SU about 1.75″ by 4.25.  I made the bow out of Michael’s ivory grosgrain ribbon, and then threaded a piece of ribbon through the back knot of the bow.  I secured the ribbon on both ends of the green DSP paper before I attached it to the ivory card.  I stamped the card using  the flourish from SU’s Season of Joy stamp set, and used Old Olive ink.  I used the Sincere Salutations stamp set for the sentiment.  For the flowers, I used the One of a Kind stamp set that has three flowers together.  Then I punched them out with the Boho Blossom punch.  All the products used are Stampin Up.  I also used pop dots on the flowers, which I don’t always do when I am sending the cards to OWH.  And don’t forget to decorate the envie!!!

March Cards

Hi Everyone,

Here are just a few cards I made this month.  I concentrated on making Mothers Day cards since the deadline for them is April 1.  I always make a few cards for birthdays and general cards, since those needs never have deadlines.  I hope you enjoy these cards.

Pink/Green For You

Pink/Green For You

This card uses the SU Boho Blossom punch with the three flowers in the One of a Kind stamp set.  It’s great to have the punch match the stamps!! I used  Pretty in Pink  and Mellow Moss ink.  The ribbon is from Michael’s.

Pink/Green Love You

Pink/Green Love You

This is such an easy card to make.  I use the flourish from the SU Christmas tree set and the flowers are stamped using the SU One of a Kind stamp set and cut out with the Boho Blossoms.  I cut a pink rectangle 1.75″ x 4.25″ and adhere the bow to it before gluing it onto the card.    The Love You is from the SU tiny words stamp set.  That set is so versatile because the sentiments can fit in anywhere on a card.

Purple/Green Mothers Day

Purple/Green Mothers Day

This is similar to the Pink/Green card above, but this time it’s using Almost Amethyst ink and a lavender bow from Michaels.  The sentiment is one of the new clear SU stamps that were just released.  This is a really nice set with lots of useful sentiments, and it’s great that they are now clear, so you can see exactly where they appear on your card. 

Purple/Green Birthday Wishes

Purple/Green Birthday Wishes

This card is similar to the ones above it.  I used the scallop punch to cut out the Birthday Wishes stamp.  I used Old Olive for the green at the bottom of the card, and lavender ribbon from Michael’s for the bow.

Olive Green/Dark Purple Birthday

Olive Green/Dark Purple Birthday

This card uses the SU Garden Green stamp set and Old Olive cardstock.  I found some ribbon at Michael’s that matches the green–it actually looks better in real life.  But as you can imagine, this is a really easy card to make.

Purple Sympathy Card

Purple/Garden Green Sympathy Card

This card is made with my favorite PTI stamp set.  It’s so easy to use, and looks so nice in every color combination.  This is the set that was available last year at CHA to anyone who spent more than $100 at the PTI booth.  If you didn’t go to CHA, you could buy it for megabucks on ebay–if you were the lucky winner.

Pink/Green

Pink/Green Flower

Green/Aqua Friend Card

Green/Aqua Friend Card

I think the color on this card is Baja Blue, which has a lot of green in it.  I love making this card, but you need patience because you have to cut out the flowers.  Anyway, it’s an SU stamp.  The brads are from Michael’s and just happen to match nicely.  After I cut out the flowers, I color the centers just a little to make it a l ittle different.  The little flower is from the Season of Joy stamp set.  It’s actually a small poinsettia, but it will pass as a spring flower on this card.

Aqua Always on my Mind

Aqua Always on My Mind

My favorite thing about this card is the sentiment.  These are SU words that are uneven–it makes it so easy to stamp and not worry about whether they are on the card straight or not.
