Thank you Kindly

Hey friends!

How's it going? Great, I hope! I haven't been able to craft for myself,, I was super happy when I was able to make this card! I always love playing along with the MFT Card Challenges, and this sketch stretched my creativity.

I ended up combining three different stamp sets, and quite frankly, I looove it! I feel like I have trouble making subdued, more muted cards, so, although this isn't totally pastel and soft, it is as close as I can get, lol!

I started by stamping, and coloring the hill image from the new Ewe Are the Best stamp set, onto a white panel, using Distress Inks, and a bit of masking. I also stamped a sentiment from Delicate Pretty Poppies right below. I trimmed it down, and adhered two strips of Khaki patterned papers from the Neutral Dots & Stripes collection before popping the panel up on a white card base, using foam.

I then die cut the bird, tree, and clouds using the London Mouse stamp set, and matching dies. I colored them, and adhered them to my card front with foam. Although it is hard to see in the picture, but I added a bit of Wink of Stella to the clouds, bird, and tree, for a bit of shimmer!

Thank you for stopping in to see! I hope you have a great day.

  1. The paper border is a neat way to highlight your cute design!

  2. What a lovely card Lindsay - love the crisp green (sponged) grass, and the cute clouds.

  3. What a lovely card, Lindsay. I have to agree with Karen B above ... I love your choice of the DP side strips. Draws the eyes to your fabulous colouring of these images!
