No Greater Love - with Vellum

 Although I am not a massive fan of vellum, it does have its place in cardmaking. Our No Greater Love stamp was layered over a pink and black ink blended background that has been stenciled with Silver Aladine Ice. This card is textural yet elegant, and the vellum helps with that effect. The No Greater Love stamp may be found here:

Flying Butterflies Sympathy Card


These are the cards you don't want to make, but sometimes you have to... Our Light Remains stamp is a beautiful sentiment for a sympathy card, and it pairs so nicely with the Peace and Comfort set on the inside. The Flying Butterflies are so pretty with blended Catherine Pooler inks, too. All available from Technique Junkies here:

In the Craft Room

Whether they are full of laughter or full of tears, those moments with my friends are the most treasured. The stamp is here:

Contemporary Peace and Comfort

There is something very soothing about this Thinking of You card...maybe it is the softly falling petals or the color scheme, or the encouraging sentiment on the inside of the card. The Contemporary Floral stamp was combined with two stamps from the Peace and Comfort set to make this encouragement card. Perfect for when you don't want to say "Get Well Soon" -- but to let someone know you admire their strength.

The Vine as a border...

The Contemporary Floral Vine Stamp is great when used just as a border! It has a flowing elegance that I just love. The sentiment is from the Lavender Friendship Sentiments Set.

Both are here:

In the Craft Room...

 When I am with my friends, what is said when we are crafting certainly does not leave the room... Anyone who has shared the joy, laughter and intimacy with crafting friends will agree with me! The background here is the Artistic Swipe stamp (and Catherine Pooler Ink) , and the In the Craft Room stamp is one of the new March 2023 stamps:
