Hello Friend! I know some of you are enjoying the Summer weather, but here in Australia it is Winter and we are dreaming of of those warm, balmy days. So I've made a fun and tropical themed friendship card to kick off today's post.
Using the new Slimline Range from Divinity Designs for the layers - Slimline Card Base for the green base, Slimline Rectangles for the cream layer, Slimline Pierced Window Frame for the yellow layer. In two of the windows, I've used some Cool and Casual Paper and left the middle one blank. Across the bottom I've added some green ribbon. I've stamped the sentiment from Wavy Words stamp/die duo in black ink onto cream card and die cut with the matching die and popped it up on X-press It Foam Tape. Finally I've added my flowers and greenery using Frangipani Dies and Ferns Dies.

My second project is an A2 Card using the new Raspberries stamp set. I've stamped it in Gray Flannel (lightly stamping it off first to give a second generation/paler image. I've coloured it with Copics and pencils and die cut with Vintage Labels Dies. I've sponged Antique Linen ink around the image while it was still in the die. I've framed this with red card cut with Vintage Borders. The card base is created using A2 Portrait Card Base in red, Matting Rectangle in River Rock and then Lattice Background in Cream. Around these layers I've added some Hessian (Burlap) Ribbon and Red Ribbon. I've stamped the sentiment from Raspberries in Warm Sepia, die cut with Circles, sponged Antique Linen while still in the die. I've added some cream die cut with Leaves and Branches for just a little accent and popped it up on foam tape.

I've made my last card a Sympathy card and therefore wanted to keep it very subtle and understated. I've used the Slimline Card Base to cut the blue base and the Slimline Rectangles to cut a cream layer. I kept it in the die and airbrushed some B21 Copic. I've then taken the Roses Stencil and some Antique Linen Ink to sponged the pattern background which turned it into this lovely tone on tone effect. I've topped this with blue cut with Slimline Flower Petal Background. Around this I've attached some ribbons and die cut the 'Sympathy' from With Sympathy Stamp/Die Duo twice in cream and blue. To finish I've added some tiny cream pearls.
