Tuesday Creating Fun with Arthritis

The day begins with lining up what to do? Yikes, so many things to get done before play time. Dishes and laundry. Yes, than figuring out dinner. Does not seem like much but live with arthritis is no fun. You can not do what you want to do when you want to do it. The body just hurts and does not move on call.

Here is a card I worked on…but I have to make Birthday, Sympathy and Get Well Card.

This is a technique I love to do. You use crumb cake card stock, stamp with black memento ink. You color with white water color pencil and than blend with blenders. Blenders are so cool cause you spread the color without water. I than used pink centers. I fussy cut the little extras and put on with dimensionals. The stamp design was from last years Sale a Bration. The stamp set can be any stamp.

Thoughtful Blooms and the Small Bloom Punch

Happy Tuesday! Are you ready for spring …it is only January. Sad face.
Isn’t it odd how we see dark nights, snow, cold etc as lovely and romantic when it’s pre Christmas, but once you’re the other side of the New Year… well, it’s just boring and old and we want sunshine!
Well my card today will hopefully bring you ideas of sun and warmth.

I’m using the new Thoughtful Blooms stamp set and matching punch, Small Blooms, which are both free during Sale a Bration. You need to order $150 worth of product and you get these lovelies free…Yes, free. I love that we can get really fantastic products for free!

This is an easy card to make, the Garden Green leaves are just one stamp behind each flower on a very vanilla note card. Yes, note cards save so much time and they are so appreciated.
The flowers themselves are stamped with rich razzleberry onto whisper white cardstock and then punched. I applied with glue dots, not dimensionals cause I did not want to pay extra postage. I kept things flat. If I was giving this in person, I would give more dimension or if I wanted to pay extra postage.
I used Crushed Curry in each flower center. I love this stamp set and punch.
Simple and Sweet!
Create Joy, Give Joy!
