Get Well Soon

Hello everyone. I have been crafting some cards as an escape from doing my mum’s Ebay stuff.

I was inspired by the current challenge at Twofer Card Challenge, and also using the sketch from Crazy 4 Challenges for one of the cards:

The ‘feel better soon’ card is another one layer card, with no smudges again – maybe I’m getting the hang of it? We shall see………

I took the Altenew ‘Get Well Soon’ stamp set and stamped the main image onto a card base. I then stamped again onto a post-it note and masked it off, stamping the honeycomb images over and around it, lining up the hexagons  as it was several different hexagon shaped stamps I used.

The main image I coloured with Altenew Artist Markers.:

I have no idea what is supposed to be in the bottle behind the mug and honey, but I just coloured it a matching colour…..maybe maple syrup…..who knows!

The second floral card is using the same honeycomb stamp, but this time I stamped and heat embossed it in a random pattern, and used my Distress Oxides over the top for an emboss-resist. It’s quite dull here in the UK at the moment, but the honeycomb is white and shiny:

I used Altenew inks to stamp the main flower and the leaves, but coloured the two little sprigs of flowers with the Altenew Artist Markers, then using the matching dies to cut them all out.

The die cut frame is from Sue Wilson – Noble dies – for the main background, die-cutting the middle and inserting the ink-resist panel into it. I knew the flowers and leaves would adding dimension, so I stuck this flat to the base card.

I arranged as you see for another vibrant card – but a totally different feel.

The sentiment is a cobbling together of three stamps from Concord and 9th ‘Wonderful Floral‘ stamp set – lined up using my Misti corner set…………..invaluable when there are different stamps you want lined up to ink and stamp together.

I shall be entering the following challenges:

  1. That’s some seriously perfect masking on your get well card, Lynda! I don’t know how many card bases I would have gone through if I tried that, lol!! And that’s pretty sweet coloring, too – do you like those Altenew markers better than Copics? Just wondering… And I have fallen madly in love with your embossed hexies card!! From the colors, to the hexies, to the frame, it’s gorgeous!! Someone is going to be tickled when they check their mailbox! Thanks for joining us at the Twofer Challenge!! : )

    • Thank you so much Bev. I have been practicing masking – sometimes good, sometimes not so much! I don’t have Copics, so I can’t compare them, but I do like the option of brush or bullet nib……and I understand the Copics have brush or chisel tip…? The Altenew markers do take the guess work out of which colours blend, so they are better for me in that respect. 🙂 🙂

  3. Lynda, your cards are so pretty! I love how you used the hexagon stamp for your background on both and showed how those background designs can be very different from each other! Your coloring is gorgeous on that flower and I picture it peeking out of a garden trellis to welcome a friend for a visit! And your get well card is just the ticket for everything that makes a person feel better, starting with just letting them know you are thinking of them! It’s lovely! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #8! Hugs, Darnell

  4. Your floral card is beautiful with the gorgeous framed border, honeycomb background and beautiful flowers. So lovely and a special card for a special friend. LOVE the second card with the random bright yellow honeycomb background. The hot tea, honey and lemon are sure to make someone feel better! Wondering if the bottle is milk?? Some people like milk and honey in their tea. 🙂 Thanks so much for playing along with us at Twofer Card Challenge!
