“While it may seem small, the ripple effects of small things is extraordinary.”
We went out for brunch on Mother’s Day with some of my husbands family. One of my sister-in-laws totally surprised me with a box of beautiful white chocolate and dark chocolate dipped strawberries. I wanted to make a strawberry themed thank you card for her, so I used today’s “Case This Sketch” challenge for inspiration.
For this card I used the old “Market Fresh” stamp set for the strawberries. I masked off part of the stamp and just stamped the fruit and not the sentiment that is above it on the stamp. The sentiment comes from the “So Many Shells” stamp set. I used Wink of Stella (a glitter pen) for the very first time on the red strawberries. It adds a fun touch! I tried to add a lemon lime twist bow above the red strawberries (which are popped up on dimensionals) but it surprisingly didn’t look good. All the strawberries I painted with the Stampin’ Up! aquabrush.
Here is the sketch from https://casethissketch.blogspot.com ….hope you can play along! Have a peaceful day, xo Dawn
“Do small things with great love.”
Hi Stamping Friends! Have you had a chance to try out the sweet little “Whisper White Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes?” I was able to play with them yesterday and they are such a sweet little size! This small shell is from the “So Many Shells” stamp set. The “For You” sentiment is from that set as well, and the “Happy Birthday” sentiment is from the Sprinkles of Life Stamp Set. I tried to double stamp the sentiments with the retiring Marina Mist and the in-color, Berry Burst, but I think I need new glasses! : ) The squares are cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies and are up on dimensionals.
Have a peaceful day! xo Dawn
“Visitor’s footfalls are like medicine, they heal the sick.”
I used the sketch over at http://www.freshlymadesketches.blogspot.com for this Thinking of You card. It’s for a close friend who is going to have a biopsy done next week. I used an old Stampin’ Up stamp set called Regarding Dahlias that I also used for the very first card on this blog back in 2013! The sentiments are from the So Many Shells stamp set. Both the dahlia and the pink pirouette circle are cut out with the Layering Circles Framelits Dies.
I wanted to use pink because that is a healing color. I always head to Pink Pirouette but I think Powder Pink (the color of the little bow) will be my new go-to pink for Get Well Cards since Pink Pirouette will be retiring! The dahlia was inked with Basic Grey and sponged with So Saffron, with Pink Pirouette in the center. The sentiments were stamped with Basic Grey.
The sentiment on the back of the card was a Hobby Lobby sale item I picked up a few months ago.
Thank you for your congratulations here on the blog yesterday and on my Facebook page for our son Jonathan’s second place win at the Bangor (Maine) Garden Show this past week-end. Our whole family appreciates your kindness! This photo is part of the booth that he had across from his display. Have a peaceful day everyone! xoxo Dawn
