One of the blogs I follow that way belongs to Deb Smart, who creates some of my favorite "must-CASE" cards (CASE meaning "Copy And Share Everything"), including this one and this one. (I didn't realize until today that they're related.) I've had the second one open on a tab in my browser for weeks to remind me that I need more sympathy cards (unfortunately). I didn't get to it sooner because I don't have the paper or ribbon Deb used. I wanted to use the only ribbon I own which is in the current catalog, but I don't have any floral paper using Tranquil Tide. I eventually figured out that I should stamp my own floral design, but the appropriate stamp set evaded me until the current What Will You Stamp challenge was posted, So, finally, I have this, which I think works well for Charlotte's feminine anything goes challenge at Watercooler Wednesday, as well:
stamp sets - Beautiful Bouquet, Painted Harvest, Thoughts & Prayers; ink - Pear Pizzazz, Soft Sky, Tranquil Tide; Stampin' Write marker - Tranquil Tide; card stock - Soft Sky, Tranquil Tide, Whisper White; punch - Decorative Ribbon Border; Big Shot and Stitched Shapes framelits; Tranquil Tide 1/2" finely woven ribbon
Another blog I've followed in "stealth" mode for a few years is Darnell's djkardkreations, and she's starting a new Twofer Challenge that I'm really looking forward to. In anticipation of that (it starts January 10, 2018) I decided I should make a second card using the same stamp set - so here's my "twofer", for which I used the Freshly Made Sketches #318:
stamp set - Beautiful Bouquet; ink - Pear Pizzazz, Soft Sky, Tranquil Tide; Stampin' Write marker - Tranquil Tide; card stock - Soft Sky, Tranquil Tide, Whisper White; Tranquil Tide 1/2" finely woven ribbon
Darnell's main requirement will be two different cards for two different occasions using the same stamp set; other than the two additional stamp sets used in the first card, I think my "practice run" may be considered a success - at least, I love them. Hope to see you and your cards at some challenge blogs this year!
