I'm a little behind posting the cards I've made the last couple of weeks, so I have several to share.
The first is for the I Feel the Love Project. This month we are making cards for the family of Baby Mason who died of injuries sustained in a car accident. Baby Mason was just 6 months old. As a mother of a nearly 6 month old, this story really tugged at my heart and I really tried to think about what would be comforting to me. I wanted to use one of these Stampin' Up silhouette stamps. I ended up using just part of the stamp and heat embossing it in copper. The verse is stamped on a shape cut using my Cricut and Storybook cartridge.
Next I have a birthday card using last week's sketch from Sketch Saturday. In stead of the hexagons, I used punched flowers. I stamped the sentiment and used some Liquid Pearls to make the centers of the card.
Next is a masculine birthday card using the Mojo Monday sketch from this week.
Finally, I have a thank you card that I made using some Glossy Cardstock and Distress Inks. I rolled the three inks on with a brayer. I experimented with stamping with water. I used a flower "paint print" stamp that I had misted with water. Some of the flowers turned out better than others. I will definitely be experimenting with this technique some more!
