The team at SU Only Challenges is looking to brighten someone’s day. As card makers, we have the opportunity to make someone know they are loved with a beautiful handmade creation. For the next two weeks we are challenging you to show us your Get Well cards. Show us your elegant wonders or show us your humor…we love them all!
I chose the beautiful new hostess set Faith in Nature as the basis for my card today. Wow, do I love this set!! You can only get it by hostessing so get that workshop scheduled as soon as you can! I inked my flower stamp with Versamark and then with an Early Espresso ink pad, stamping it on Naturals Ivory paper. I quickly heat embossed it with with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and my Heat Tool. This allows easy watercoloring and no ink smearing! I colored the flower with Crumb Cake, Not Quite Navy and a touch of Night of Navy ink and then stamped on a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes. The DSP layer is from the Well Worn DSP set. It is hard to see but I embossed the Early Espresso layer with my Big Shot and the Backgrounds 1 Texturz Plate (diamond pattern). Finally, I spritzed some water on some Crumb Cake Seam Binding, crumpled it up to let it dry and tied it into a bow. A Basic Pearl is the finishing touch for the flower. This fabulous sketch is courtesy of Inkspirations!
The rest of the team at SU Only Challenges has made some amazing cards so make sure you go take a look (and leave them some love on their blogs)! I can’t wait to see what you make.
I’ll take a little break tomorrow and will be back Thursday for the ColorLab and on Friday with a new catalog blog hop…you don’t want to miss it! Hope your day is great!

Gorgeous card! Can’t wait to hear about the other card that got “delayed”.
very nice get well card ! The water spritz on the seam binding is a nice touch too!
Jennifer, it almost never fails; every time I see a new card on you blog, an “Ohhh!” come out of my mouth! This is another winner (and you are still the queen of bows in my book)!
Love those colors together and how you crumpled the seam binding! I’ll have to try that soon.
I LOVE this color combo! If I was feeling under the weather this would definitely cheer me up!
Awesome card Jen-very pretty!!
Wow, I love this card – the blue and crumb cake are wonderful together. I have a piece of scrunched up crumb ribbon on my table someplace waiting to be used – thanks for the reminder!!!!
Gorgeous card! Those colors are fabulous together!
This card is so lovely!
Beautiful card. I love the easy watercoloring idea–with embossing. I forget it way too often!
