Beautiful Day Thinking of You Cards

The Beautiful Day stamp set was a fabulous choice for the four, quick “thinking of you” cards I needed.  The sentiment and style work for sympathy to thank you cards!

I love hearing from you!  Please leave me your questions or comments about the project for today.

STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

The Beautiful Day Stamp set (one of My Favorite Things) has a WOW! butterfly and flower that beg to be colored.

I stamped the butterfly image with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and used my Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends Markers to add graduated color.  Learn more about Stampin’ Blends here (including tips and video demonstrations).

The sentiment (also Beautiful Day stamp set) was cropped with a die from Petals & More Thinlits Dies.  It’s popped up on a couple Stampin’ Dimensionals.

  1. I really enjoyed the video you posted of how to use the blending pens on the flower. I would be interested to see a picture of the finished card, what colors of cardstock you used. Thanks so much!

    This is such a BEAUTIFUL card my friend. And you have mastered the fine art of coloring…..Without a doubt.

    • I experimented a little. Starting with dark vs. light, etc. Pretty much the same results. I used the color lifter on one to get almost a marbled effect. Still playing with that!
