There is a chill in the air, and what is better than sipping a cup of hot tea, coffee, or chocolate? Send these thoughts in our NEW cup shaped cards. They are super for get well, thinking of you, and winter birthdays. And what fun they are to decorate. I like the teacup the best. I used BoBunny designer paper, Morex ruffled ribbon, a Stampendous stamp and a real teabag tag. But, I am more of a coffee drinker, so I had to make a coffee card. Again I used BoBunny paper, Morex ribbon and I’m not sure on the stamp company. The cocoa cup has Hampton Art stamps,and marshmallow topping cut freehand. Any of these cards would extend warm greetings this time of year. Purchase the cup cards at www.stampexpressstore.com.
I dread making sympathy cards, but they are a necessary message to send. Our friend Susan West passed away this week, and we want to let the family know that we are thinking of them. I did have the dogwood flower stamped and colored with Copic markers and layered on diecut Nestabilities, so assembling the card was not too difficult. The stamp is from JustRite. Their flower stamps are perfect for any occasion. The embossed strip was done with a Cuttlebug embossing folder on Colorcore cardstock and then sanded to bring out the design. Background designer paper is from BoBunny,the word stamp from Hero Arts, and the decorative swirls from Spellbinders tag dies. Now I’m going to bake something to take along with the card and offer my condolences. A good idea would be to make up several of these cards ahead of time to have on hand, but I just can’t seem to do it. If you need the products, they are all available at our on-line store.
