For Peep's Sake! Have a Sweet Spring!

It's Spring!  Well, if you live here, near L.A. it's pretty much Summer.  No matter the weather, Spring holidays are upon us and I used this really great card sketch from Freshly Made Sketches as my template for a card my last Stamp Camp.  Whether or not you celebrate Easter, "Peeps" are a sweet symbol of Spring.  Here's my idea: 

The card base is Wisteria Wonder. It shows up a little gray in this photo, but it's a lovely pale shade of purple. The yellow is So Saffron and the stripes are Garden Green. 
We had a really great time at the Stamp Camp and I will have more posts from the evening shortly, so come back soon! 
Thanks for visiting!

Simple Sympathy

“Into each life, a little rain must fall”– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
A Sympathy Card is an unfortunate necessity, and a beautiful way to send your sentiments.  This past week, a distant cousin passed suddenly.  It was my desire to create something that was simple and also beautiful to send to his family to let them know I cared.  
Trying to decide a color scheme is always difficult for me.  I have tons of ideas listed on my Pinterest page.  Sometimes other blogs help me come up with ideas.  In this case, a challenge on Paper Players helped me decide. 
I used a Textured Embossing Folder as a letterpress by inking it up before embossing the Crumb Cake cardstock.  I was pleasantly surprised at the look of velvet texture the ink left.  

Thank you for visiting.  Come back soon for updates to this post.
