Healing Thoughts

Congrats to Viv (Daizy-Mae), the newest Featured Stamper (FS380) on Splitcoast! She has such a wonderful, CAS (clean & simple) style. Makes me wish CAS came easy to me…but it doesn’t. But I did my best to trim this down.  I was totally inspired by THIS card.  I love the splashes of color, the dandelions and the sequins, so I kept those. I used a different greeting, my dandelions are die cuts since I don’t have an image like hers and I used an embossing folder to make my background. I also flipped it because my bigger white space was on the opposite side.

Don’t know if you’ve heard, but one of my DT mates and recent Dirty Dozen Alumni, Chris (aka Glowbug)  broke her ankle last week & she’s had a few complications. So I made this to send to her. I’m hoping this proverb will send her healing thoughts. 

I’ve really been enjoying all the embossing folder stamping I’ve been seeing, so I thought I’d try it. Instead of inking and misting, I tried using some sprays. Thought I’d skip a step and go straight for the spray stuff, lol. It worked wonderfully, IMHO. The sprays I used are very shimmery, but I just can’t capture it w/ the camera. I spritzed the more solid half of the ef, not to cover, just here & there, then pressed my white card stock inside & rubbed.  The sentiment was stamped, die cut dandelions & sequins added & done!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. So beautiful. I love your emboss folder stamping. It’s so colourful. And the black flowers look lovely. How sweet of you to send off your card to a fellow stamper.

  2. Love the background you made using the embossing folder and sprays. Wondered how you managed to stamp the sentiment on top of the “embossed” folder! Super result you’ve achieved, Julie!
