Gift of Life

ere’s a card I made recently attempting to use several new things I added to my stash. Working with Bazzill papers, I folded the purple paper and layered on top pink paper and a polka dotted panel from Nana’s Kids. From Nestabilities I cut a purple scallop and white circle. Stamped with one of my favorite old Penny Black stamps and colored with Copics. Then, punched the scalloped border from vellum paper and added the sentiment from For Giving Souls All Night Media with purple embossing power and secured with two pick brads. Lastly I tied on the pink grosgrain ribbon. I think I’m getting the knack of those Copics. I’m finding out at each sitting that there are so many ways to use them and hoping over time, that I’ll become better with them. Oh, and I sure am finding out that you don’t really know what colors you need until you sit down to work with them and reach for a shade that you don’t have. Yeah, you can do some blending and pulling off of color and mixing but you really do get a good feel if a color you want is missing. Supplies: Stamps: Penny Black, For Giving Souls – All Night Media Paper: Nana’s Kids, Bazzill Other: Embossing power, brads, vellum, ribbon, Nestabilities, copics

    I just love your cards. Your videos make things look so easy.

    I would like to ask you and your viewers a question. Once before I got so involved with card-making, I saw a symathy card made with white paper, using an oblong or square plain spellbinder in the center, also using the score pal on the top or bottom. It had “With Symathy” in the center. Plus one of the had a single flower with stem on it.

    I have spent hours and days looking for this card, and I know if anyone can help me it would be you and your team. Thanks and God Bless You…..Betty (Becky)ReplyCancel
