Hello Field Flowers

By | March 20, 2013

Hi Stampin' Friends

We went out to lunch to celebrate St Patrick's Day and the anniversary of our first date, many, many, many years ago.  We went to our new favorite restraurant which is the River Grille in Bentonville, AR.  We happen to mention that we were celebrating our first date anniversary and the manager gave us a "Happy Anniversary" card and a gift certificate!  Now I know why I love this place!

1-DSC00675I made this card for a dear friend who is in the last stages of cancer and is in hospice.  I wanted something bright and cheerful for her and when I saw a card on Frenchie's blog today, I decided to case it.  Of course, I changed a couple of things to make it my own.

I used the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to place the flowers because I wanted everything to be perfect for my friend. I first stamped the flowers with Primrose Petals and then with Raspberry Ripple.  The stem and leaves were stamped with Gumball Green which is starting to grow on me!  After the flowers, I stamped the Hello Doily Stamp with Crumb Cake.  I used a light touch because I wanted it to be faded in the background.

I used the Color Spritzer Tool and Crumb Cake Stampin' Write Marker to give it a vintage look.  The sentiment is from the Lovely Lace Clear Mount stamp Set which was stamped in Respberry Ripple. 


Did you know that I bought the Lovely Lace Stamp Set just because I loved the font on the Hello Stamp?  Have you ever done anything like that?

The last thing I did was to score it 1/4" all around the card.  The Very Vanilla Card Stock was layered onto Raspberry Ripple Card Stock.  The base card is Crumb Cake Card Stock.

Thanks for Stopping by today!
