It is hard to design a card for a guy when you do want to use a flower. However, the Cardz 4 Guys Challenge #50 for a card with a Good Well Wish made it the perfect time to give it a try. I hope you like what I came up with.
One of the styles I really like is grunge. This grungy background was created with Stampin’ Up! inks in Night of Navy, Balmy Blue, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede. I used some retired sets which are my favs: Gorgeous Grunge and Timeless Textures. There are similar stamps in the current catalog, but I just love these.
These particular rose and leaves are in the current Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog and the stamp set is called Healing Hugs. This is a Distinktive stamp which to me looks more photographic. I enhanced the rose with the Pacific Point Watercolor Pencil, and the leaves with the Old Olive Watercolor Pencil to make them even more realistic.
Thanks for stopping by and viewing my Cards 4 Guys Challenge #50- Get Well Wishes. You can find out more about this challenge at cardz4guys.com. I have a lot of fun with it!
Hello, my name is Theresa. I have 4 children and a wonderful husband of 30 years. I am a retired Family Physician. I love having time now to create and craft, so much so that I became a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. I have been a demonstrator more than 5 years and am having a blast! Not only do I get to craft, I meet new friends from all over the world! Crafting gives me something positive to do and to share with others. I love to have my monthly Zoom Card Making Classes so others can craft with me. I have so much fun creating the cards for others to make!
My blog was initially geared toward the beginner stamper in order to help others get started stamping on their own at home. If you need information to get started, look for my first blogs.
My more recent posts have been cards and projects for Blog Hops and challenges. Stop by to see my projects and those of folks from around the world! Add more creativity to your life today!
