Karen N here today sharing with you some sympathy cards that I made using the Heartfelt Creations Peacock Paisley paper. I lost a very important person in my life last weekend, and I decided to make sympathy cards for the family. As with all of the Heartfelt Creations line, it’s simply gorgeous.
I’d only received a sample of this paper, so I decided to challenge myself and make all four cards using two sheets of 12 x 12 paper. In the video below, you will see what I had left along with more details about the cards I made:
I also used some white cardstock and stamped and cut one pass of the Heartfelt Creations Delightful Daisy stamps and dies. In each case, I inked them with Tim Holtz Distress Ink then watered them a little to make the paper more pliable and to blend the ink a little. I curled the edges just slightly to make them more dimensional.
In this first card, I inked a couple of the daisies with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Dried Marigold. (The centers of all of my flowers are prills.) I fussy cut a couple tags from the Peacock Paisley collection and then added some ribbon and lace:
This second card has more of the daisy, this time inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Chipped Sapphire. I love the prettiness added by using part or all of a simple doily. The leaf in the background is diecut and inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Cracked Pistachio. The little ATC and ticket are part of the Peacock Paisley collection.
Next up is another card with a doily. This time I used that beautiful blue paper from Peacock Paisley and cut a Spellbinders Decorative Labels 41. That pretty intricate die cuts so easily using the Sizzix Precision Base Plate and the Big Shot. If you don’t have one of these cool plates yet, get one! You’ll love it! The ink on this daisy is Tim Holtz Distress Ink Mustard Seed. Remember – ALL of these fun flowers were just one pass!
On this final card, I went a little more CAS. I stamped an image from a Unity Stamp onto one of the panels from the Peacock Paisley paper and colored it with my Copics. I was a little worried about the ink bleeding when I added some shading, but it handled it pretty well.
Well, that’s it for me today. Hope you all have a lovely Memorial Day weekend. Thanks for stopping by to check out my cards!
