Second Praying for You Card

My friend that makes the afghans for the cancer survivors/patients liked my In Bloom card so much she wanted one in yellow and blue.  The DSP I had doesn't come in yellow and blue, so I chose different paper to meet those colors.  Its not one of my favorites, but she said she still liked it.

Stamps: PTI Scattered Showers
Paper:  So Saffron, Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Delicate Dots DSP
Ink: So Saffron
Accessories: So Saffron grosgrain ribbon, 1 1/4 in circle punch, SU! Scallop Circle punch, adhesive pearls

First Christmas Cards of 2010

I finally started making my Christmas cards this week also.  I was looking for a card that I could CASE using My Favorite Thing's Merry Christmas? stamp set, and I found scoop71's No Stress Holiday card, which inspired me to create the card below.

Paper: Whisper White, Real Red, Old Olive, Dashing DSP
Accessories: Large Oval punch, scalloped oval punch
Techniques: Paper Piecing

I also found LateBlossom's Glittery Christmas card, and made my own version:

Ink: Whisper White Craft
Accessories; White ribbon, SU! Ornament Punch, MS Snowflake punch, MS Around the Page Snowfall punch

Two Cancer Cards, and a Sympathy card

Unfortunately one of my good friends lost her brother at the young age of 25 this week.  I made this card as a sympathy card for her.  It is loosely based on Niki Este's Roses card.  This picture doesn't really do it justice, it's much more yellow in real life.

Stamps:  PTI Year of Flowers: Roses, Round and Round
Paper: Whisper White, So Saffron, PTI Vintage Cream
Ink: Basic Black, So Saffron
Accessories: Prismacolor Pencils, Gamsol, SU! Large Oval Punch, SU! Scalloped Oval Punch

I also make cards for cancer patients, my friend gives them out when she hands out blankets that she crochets.
I made another one that was also based off of Niki Este's Roses card  (I made a whole sheet with the buds as a background, so I decided I might as well use it).

Stamps: PTI Year of Flowers, PTI Simple Little Things
Paper: Real Red, PTI Vintage Cream
Ink: Basic Black, Old Olive
Accessories:  Prismacolor Pencils, Gamsol

The next one was based on Darhm's Pear Pizzaz and Greenhouse Gala card.

Stamps: PTI Scattered Showers
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select White, PTI In Bloom (Poppy
Red) DSP
Ink: Poppy Red
Accessories: White Ribbon, Scallop Punch, Circle Punch, Adhesive Pearls
