Kinda Eclectic Big Hug Sympathy

I have two sympathy cards to share with you today, using three stamps sets:  Stampin 'Up Kinda Eclectic and Backyard Basics and sentiments from Close To My Heart called Big Hug.

The first card uses background papers of Stampin' Up Crumb Cake and Lost Lagoon the leaves were stamped in Lost Lagoon, Whisper White, Crumb Cake and Versamark which was heat embossed with Marcasite embossing powder.

The second card was stamped with Lost Lagoon, Crumb Cake and Versamark and again embosedd with Marcasite.

I can't decide which one I like the best.

All About Everything

Know What I Like About You?...Everything

Took my cue on this one from the flyer in the March Paper Pumpkin Kit, love this bonus stamp set from Stampin' Up celebrating three years of Paper Pumpkin and One Million kits sold.  To replicate the larger flower, I first inked up the small flower and stamped off for the lighter color then stamped onto the white card stock,  then masked with a cut out to stamp the larger flower in full strength Watermelon Wonder ink.

Lovely Little Wreath

Stampin' Up's Paper Pumpkin Kit for April 2016 "Lovely Little Wreath" two ways:

Happy Spring wreath using Hello Honey Ribbon.

Happy Mother's Day wreath using Cherry On Top Cotton Paper for the flowers.

I purchased four of the kits this month, these two are gifts.  I plan on making one wreath that I can change out the decorations and sentiments to use all year long in my craft studio.  

I have one kit for sale $20 plus shipping and I would be willing to sell the extra stamp sets from these kits....let me know if you are interested.
