I’ve been playing with Yupo and alcohol inks. I must say, I probably have 100 panels of different sizes and colors. This card was so simple but I just love it. The sentiment is from the Gina K set from the last Catherine Pooler’s Stamp of Approval release.
I really tried not to want this. I REALLY did, but two days in I knew I was sunk. I love Gina K’s work. And I’ve been actively looking for beautiful, classy sentiments that do exactly what these do – go on the front of a card.
My sister in law sends a lot of cards. Just hi, thanks, dinner was great, loved seeing you. She’s a card sender. And she’s busy. So I try to make her little sets of cards for Mother’s Day. This year 2 of the 3 sets I made her used stamps from the new SOA Beautiful World.
The Just-a-Note? I wanted it to be single layer. It’s a 4-bar size. I took a hero arts flower background stamp in Gina K’s white pigment on her 120# heavyweight weight. Let it dry. Then I used some MFT Cornflower dye ink and stamped the corner stamp from the Gina K. SOA set and an old old sentiment from PaperTrey – I love how it fits perfectly tucked into the corner.
The other set is a CASE from the SOA blog, but I went looking thru old Gina K. sets and ta-da … Sun Kissed Autumn has a same-size flower. I used the Sending Birthday Wishes sentiment from the SOA set. It is just beautiful. All of the colors I used here were hero arts neon. I don’t use them often enough and I thought they were perfect for a bright, cheery Happy Birthday Card. These two are single layer on Gina K 120# heavyweight weight and are 4-bar size. Have I mentioned I love 4-bar size cards? I ordered a box of envelopes from Amazon. 250 for $20 Prime. Who can beat that?
This is my first SOA kit and I’m not sure how it works – in the future. The kit sold out within the three days so is now no longer available. I believe that the individual sets will eventually be sold by the maker. I BELIEVE. So hopefully the Gina K set will be available on her site in the future. It absolutely is a must have.
The third set of 4 cards is an Art Impressions water color set of their Windows to the World. I have to say, loving those too. Maybe I’ll post them this week. Right now, I need to get into the kitchen and do dishes so I can continue my Mother’s Day Cards.
Have a good week everyone! Be safe. -k
