Sympathy Tulips

I always find it difficult to make a sympathy card.  It may be because the loss of a friend or loved one is difficult to process, or not knowing what to say to someone who has lost a loved one.

This past weekend I attended the funeral of a dear friend’s husband.  He had been a combat veteran and left behind a wife and kids.  The wife requested no flowers in lieu she requested donations be made to a Go Fund Me.  It is a very long and heart wrenching story and can only pray she and her children find peace and resolution to their struggles.

Since she requested no flowers I gave her flowers.  Well, my way of giving flowers.  Tulips because they are happy and hope they may bring a little smile to her and her children.

I made this card with Sue Wilson dies and the image cut with my Silhouette Cameo.  I, absolutely, love the PixScan mat!  Boy, does it beat fussy cutting images.

Thanks for stopping by my little corner.

 

Hugs,

Kim

House Mouse Friendly Dreams

Hi all!

Another post today to share a Christmas card I finished this weekend.  I’m actually getting a little bit of an early start.  The stamp is Stampendous House-Mouse Friendly Dreams.  Isn’t it cute?  I used many elements on this card and I love how it came out.

Of course, I used my Sue Wilson dies and my Copic markers.  The image, sentiment and the Poinsettia striplets were popped up for dimension.

I am entering this card in the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge.

Make a Wish

This weekend was my dear hubby’s birthday.  Every year I try to make something different for his card and this year I kept it clean and simple  He loves the cards I make with the House Mouse stamps.  He wasn’t disappointed with this card.  He loved it!  The stamp I used is called Make A Wish 02.  I tried to find one to link to this post, but this stamp is retired and the only ones I found were on eBay and Easy.    This stamp is so happy and fun and I loved coloring it.  Who doesn’t like a cupcake!

I colored the image with my Copic Markers and used the Copic Multiliner to accent the fur and around the eyes.  The Copic Multiliner is great because it is compatible with Copic Markers and do highlight specific areas of the image.   I also used the new Cosmic Shimmer Colour Cloud Blending Inks in Barely Nude and Fosty Mink.  These inks are very easy to work with and using them with the new Creative Expressions Mini Smoothies.  These new smoothies are so much easier to work with versus other blending sponges I have used in the past.

 

I am entering this card in the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge.  The theme for this challenge is A Day Spent with Friends.

Happy Father’s Day

I know this is a little late in posting, but things have been a little hectic around my home.

This is a card I made for my son for Father’s Day. I used my Copic Markers to color the image. This time I concentrated on using the warm grey colors. I have never really worked with them, so lately I’ve been forcing myself to work them more into my images.

Fathers Day

The stamps I used is from the Sparkle ‘n Sprinkle Wild Cats set. This is the perfect stamp set for the men in your life.  I also played with the new Cosmic Shimmer Colour Cloud Blending Inks.  I love them!

This is the list of supplies I used.  Sorry I didn’t write down the exact Copic colors I used.
