Thoughts and Prayers…..

Let people know that you care.

Sometimes we need to send out cards that are hard to send.  We have a beautiful set that I am happy to say is not going to be retiring.  Thoughts and Prayers, item #113252 is a perfect stamp set to help you make a heartfelt card for someone you love.  Here is a card using the verse from that set:

I left the glare on the picture so that you could see the technique I used.  The two sets used on the very vanilla portion of the card will be retiring.  They are Inspired by Nature, item #111656, which is the grass portion and Upsy Daisy, item #111710 which of course is the floral portion.

The daisy stamp was inked up with Versa Mark and then inked in Peach Parfait classic ink.  I used a dauber and added touches of Calypso Coral  then stamped onto the very vanilla card stock.  I used clear embossing  powder and heat set it.  The grass portion from the Inspired by Nature set was stamped over that with Early Espresso classic ink.  You should have a paper towel or kleenex on hand to wipe the ink off the embossed image.

This is a great technique – inking up your image with Versa Mark and then into the color of your choice.  Use the clear embossing powder over it and you have an embossed image using any of our beautiful classic ink colors.  Try it and let me know what you think!

Please remember that sending out a prayer card can help someone at just the time that they need it.  It’s so important to let people know that they are not alone in what ever may be happening in their lives.   We get so caught up in the hustle and bustle of our lives we sometimes forget to look around.  Have one of these cards on hand for when just one of those moments.
