Another Sympathy Card

A coworker lost her sister to cancer last week.  This card is similar to the one I posted a few weeks ago.  I really should make these in advance and always have some ready to go; if I am making it for someone in particular, I find I am often too sad to be creative.  If I make them ahead of time, maybe it won't be so depressing.

I used the All Over The Page punch of the stars and punched the Night of Navy, put it over the yellow and then put it on a Night Of Navy card.  I used a white gel pen for signing it.  The sentiment is stamped in NoN on the yellow and cut out using the Labels 11.

Paper: SU Night of Navy, generic yellow
Ink: SU Night of Navy, white gel pen
Stamp: Inky Antics
Accessories: Martha Stewart's Starry Sky punch, Popdots, Nestabilities Label 11

Travel Montage - Triple Stamping Technique

I saw a card using this technique a few weeks ago, but didn't really think much about it. A few weeks later I was at a stamping convention and saw this travel montage stamp. I wanted it, but couldn't think of what I could use it for. Then I remembered this technique and thought it would be perfect! So here are the two cards I made, one in yellow and one in green.

Paper: Summer Sun, Glorious Green, Neenah

Ink: Memento Tuxedo
Stamp: Rubbernecker's European Travel
Accessories:  Ribbon from my stash

I saw THIS card on Pintrest and thought it was sooooo cute.  I CASEd it, but changed to a safari theme.
