For a sweet friend

This is the card I’ve been working on most recently. I’ve finally included the supplies I’ve used. My favorite is the sentiment: “A friend is somone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words”.

Stamps: to make the background I used the stamp “Floral Swirl” from Clear Dollar Stamps. I stamped the image with Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Ink Pad. I then used my heat gun to dry the ink. Afterward I dipped the sheet of paper on my crafting mat, which I had sponged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink Pad (also from Tim Holtz) and sprayed water on with my minimister. I then dried the paper with my heat gun.

For the sentiments, they both came from
AmyR Stamps Friends Sentiments from All That Scraps. Both sentiments were stamped with ink pads from Tsukineko Memento. ”For a sweet friend” was stamped with “Rich Cocoa”, and the other sentiment was stamped with “Rose Bud”. I bought the inkpads from I also added some Victorian Velvet Distress Ink around the rectangle.

The little leaf under "A friend” is from the Rosebud Scrolls set from Clear Dollar Stamps. I’ve sadly forgotten where I got the two other small decorative stamps next to it, so if anyone recognize them, let me know so I can give credit to the company.

Dies:I’ve used several dies from Spellbinders, including a little die from the Renaissance Hearts Shapeabilities Pendants, a die from Labels Nine Nestabilities and one of the Large Decled Mega Rectangles. The flowers were made using several sizes of the Peony Nestabilities. I used a pink stamp pad from Colorations to color them, called the “jumbo washable ink pad”. I bought this ink pad at a dirt cheap sales price at the local book shop, and it was definately worth the very little money I spent. After finishing the flowers, I added some Tattered Angels Glimmer mist (Color: Pink Bubblegum).

I also used a die from
Heartfelt Creations called HCD 702: Decorative Butterfly-Border Diecuts. To add some color to the butterfly I used the jumbo inkpad, and also added some color from the Brilliance Pigment Ink Stamp Pad (color Pearlescent Orange), and some Smooch ink (color: Molasses) by Clearsnap.

I bought the ribbon at a local store and I don’t remember the name of the company.

Dies: The flowers were created just like the ones in the front. Using glue dots I fastened them to a Spellbinders die, the Large Decled Mega Rectangles. I cut out 2 of these, just one size bigger than the one at the bottom. That way I can write a note to my friend in the middle.

At last I decorated a bit with a few rhinestones called
Basic Grey Bling It! Rhinestone Embellishments (Color: Pink).

That’s it for now, but I’ll hopefully be back soon!
