Sheltering Tree Meets Wetlands for PP227

When I saw The Paper Players Color Challenge of Crisp Cantaloupe, Lost Lagoon, and Sahara Sand, I immediately thought of the beach.   When I sat down to create my card I had just received the Sheltering Tree stamp set and thought the “grass” image could be used for sand dunes and waves.

  • For the sand dunes I inked the stamp using Sahara Sand and stamped several times across the banner.
  • I inked the stamp using Lost Lagoon, stamped off twice, and then stamped the image upside down to make the waves.

Sending Good Thoughts for TSSC315

Today’s card was inspired by the Techno Stampers Challenge #315.  What a great sketch that lends itself to all kinds of cards.

Thinking of You – KP Patient Card

While living in California I had the pleasure of making cards for patients hospitalized at the Kaiser Permanente, Roseville facility with the hopes of brightening a patient’s day.

  • The bright colors of Tangerine Tango, Pacific Point, and Melon Mambo (Beyond the Garden DSP) serve as the focal point for this cheery card.
  • Melon Mambo was reinforced with a background panel and a single candy dot.

I hope this card brought a smile to the patient.  What do you think?
Enjoy, and happy stamping!
