Cards! Cards! Monday: Single Layer Blendabilities Card

I've been taking an OnLine Card Class about stretching the stamps that you already have on hand. I'm loving it! It's actually open to anyone! You just visit onlinecardclasses.com... it's not too late to join the one I'm in, it's called Stretch Your Stamps 2. The particular session that inspired this card was one on outline stamps - stamps that are just the outline and beg to be colored... such as this stamp set; it's called Bloom with Hope and it's a hostess stamp set.

What does Hostess Stamp Set mean? It usually means it's something you can earn when you host a workshop/party/crafty get-together when, at the end everyone has ordered their stamps, inks, adhesives, etc., the order total reaches $150 or more, you, the hostess, start earning money to spend on extra goodies which include this beautiful stamp set (only available for hostesses).

Another way you can earn hostess rewards is by your own order adding up to $150 or more.

Rewards start at $25 and grow the more you spend! Talk about a great rewards!!!

This particular card has a water color background using our aqua painters and the flowers are colored using the new and fabulous Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities Assortment and the Costal Cabana Assortment and the Daffodil Delight Assortment finishes off the center of each flower.

Believe it or not, this isn't even colored on water color paper. It's on our Whisper White Cardstock! I know! Then I used the Project Life Journaling Pens to create curly cues on the greeting and sentiments and then the flowers and leaves - leaving this sympathy card with a whimsical feel.
