Creative elements get well soon …

I am loving my new Creative Elements stamp set from Stampin’ Up! The images are just so beautiful – as soon as I got it I just had to ink it up to make a get well card for Jenni …

I added a few embossed flowers, made with the flower burst embosslit die.  The butterflies were stamped in real red ink, and cut out using my paper snips.  Linen thread was wrapped around the butterflies and tied in a knot, leaving short ends to look like antennae.  A few rhinestones added some bling to their bodies and I added a couple more either side of the sentiment.

Papercraft supplies from Stampin’ Up!

cardstock: whisper white, crumb cake; stamp sets: creative elements, sincere salutations; inks: real red; accessories: stampin’ dimensionals, rhinestones, linen thread, stamp-a-majig.

Get well…

One of our very good friends has recently had major heart surgery to repair one of his valves.  Thankfully, he is doing well, spent only a brief time in ICU and has now been discharged home to recuperate.  The wonders of modern medicine!

I saw a band aid tutorial some time ago on Andrea’s blog, and knew the plaster would be just perfect for the card I wanted to make him.  


He loved the card but, judging by the scar that now runs the length of his chest, I think he’s going to need a bigger plaster!  🙂

Stampin Up supplies used:

Cardstock: bashful blue, whisper white, blush blossom (retired); Inks: pink pirouette, night of navy, real red, bashful blue; Stamp sets: hopeful thoughts, in stitches; Punches: heart to heart; Accessories: paper piercer and mat pack, stampin dimensionals, white gel pen.
