May Each Day by ikki

My card today shows how useful stamps can be when you want to send a card saying you are thinking of someone at a difficult time in their life, and one of the most difficult to make!

I love decorative papers, but sometimes you need a little more.....on this paper from the Simple Elegance designs, the newly launched stamps Nature's Swirls are ideal.

The large flourish stamp is super - you can use different parts of the stamp and it looks like you have used multiple stamps!  Stamped in clear Versamark and heat embossed with White embossing powder it takes the lovely patterned paper to a new level!    When you add a sentiment from the Words of Comfort .....
you have a card for that difficult occasion! 

Materials used:
6" x 6" white card
Peach and white cardstock
Decorative paper: Simple Elegance
Stamps: Nature's Swirls and Words of Comfort
Nestabilities: Grand Square, Mega Rectangle
Inkpads:Adirondack: Salmon, Mountain Rose, Veramark
Embossing Powder : White
Flower, foam pads

My DT mates will be showing you more of their artwork over the next few days, so please come back soon for more inspiration and tips.

Happy Stamping, ikki

  13. The white embossed edge of the sentiment with the simple flower embellishment really finishes this beautifully without being over the top.
