Day 273 4 365 Cards, No Christmas cards this post... : )

Happy Thursday! I checked out 365 cards and the paper I wanted to use for this card was being used for the challenge. How lucky for me. Now maybe I can get back in the swing at 365...

I made these quick cards for a coworker who needed them for Sympathy Thank you's. The inside reads: It is difficult to express all that your kindness and thoughtfulness has meant. We greatly appreciated all that was done in our time of need.

Supplies: paper/making memories flocked brocadestripe mocha andflocked brocade poolside paperie, The Paper Company cardstock, DCWV blue metallic; words/computer generated (inside and out); satin ribbon/AC Moore; cuttlebug folder
(I tried to keep these simple because they have to go through the mail)
I think I was inspired by some of the artists I saw at one of the card conventions I attended
(with my friend Karen), when I sat down and made these cards. I really like how they turned out. Maybe one day I will submit them.

Supplies: (Unfortunately some of my supplies were not labeled, I'm getting better about keeping on top of what I am using these days, but these cards were made months ago)
paper/DCWV notecards, The paper company cardstock and notecards, vintage paper is unknown (possibly DCWV), rubber stamps/ unknown- I ordered them from the internet and they are not stamped on the back. Once they were removed from the packaging, that was it and that was so long ago...; flowers and leaves/AC Moore, brads/ AC Moore, flower sequins/dollar days, marker (on the lips), and folk art glass finish on the lips over the marker; glitter pen-stardust roll on
This is another card that is not my usual style. I was trying something different. Also inspired after a visit to a craft convention. This is a stenciled card.

Supplies: paper/metallic DCWV, animal print (unk), and cardstock (mat) The Paper Company; stencil/Dreamweaver; embossing paste/ bronze and gold by Dreamweaver, rhinestones/ Oriental Trading Co.

Thanks for visiting! R


  1. Hi Rachel,

    Your sympathy card came just in time. Someone order a few sympathy cards. I didn't know what to put inside. Your wording are perfect.

    The second cards are gorgeous! How did you do that?

    And my numbers are growing because you added them. (smile)

  2. This is amazing! I love how the images just pop!

    Thanks for your sweet sweet comments! I REALLY appreciate them. Have a great weekend!! :)
