Get Well Wishes to Share

Here are a few more wonderful cards I received from my dear friends. This lovely "Thinking of You" card found its way to my mailbox from ChristineR. The focal paisley image is from the Polka Dots & Paisley set which is retiring soon. It is stamped with Bravo Burgundy on Naturals White cardstock trimmed out, embellished with a brad and popped up on the mat with Stampin' Dimensionals. This layer was matted on Bravo Burgundy cardstock and tied off with a bit of Burgundy organdy ribbon. I really miss the SU! organdy. It is such an elegant touch to all projects.

The sentiment is from Sincere Salutations. Christine then randomly stamped the same paisley image on a Naturals White cardstock base to create a coordinating background. To complete the monochromatic look, Christine sponged Bravo Burgundy ink from the outside edges inward leaving a subtle heaviness of ink more toward the outer portion of the card to achieve a nice balance of color.

You may have seen this next card on the Utah Diva Blog Saturday. I am lucky to have one of these scalloped wonders for my very own. This Wild Wasabi and Purely Pomegranate card is created by Janice RR and has a bit of velcro holding the unique fold closed. Janice uses the flower from Embrace Life as her focal image at the outside closure and on the inside as well. She displays an obvious talent for creating scalloped edges. The card is further embellished with Purely Pomegranate Prints Designer Series Paper and Wild Wasabi Double-Stitched Ribbon.

The third card is from KathyB. I love the color combo which I believe is Taken with Teal and Kraft cardstock. Kathy stamped flower images from Doodle this and Bud Basics (retiring soon) randomly on Kraft cardstock. I am not sure from which set is the dotted circle. This layer is matted onto Taken with Teal cardstock and then again onto a Kraft card base. She then adhered a strip of fancy ribbon from the Sherbet Ribbon Originals across the bottom portion of the card over which she popped the sentiment from Sincere Salutations using Stampin' Dimensionals. Lovely results.

Once again, thank you to my Diva Sisters for all of the wonderful cards. I will share more with you soon.

Happy Stampin'! EdieB
