myStampBOX: With Sympathy

Sometimes the simplest gestures mean the most. Today I'm sharing a card I made for a friend who lost someone dear. The mesh border is from Repeat After Me, the sentiment from Everyday Lines, and the butterfly from Colorful Companions. The butterfly was stamped onto patterned paper and embellished with a gentle touch of glitter pen and pearls. All stamps are available in the myStamp BOX online store.

Design Team Feature: Inks

Designers from myStamp BOX joined creative forces today to share projects featuring VersaColor Inks from product partner Tsukineko Co, Ltd. Here's what I made.

I received Cardinal and Turquoise inks and loved the color combo. I found a piece of school-themed paper from My Mind's Eye with handwriting lines in the same colors, so that started as the perfect base for my stamped panel. I used the coffee swirl stamp from Enjoy Your Latte! along the top and bottom of the panel to create a graphic border. Thanks was stamped across the center using Lots of Dots - Sentiments.

This super cute nerdy bird comes from Warm Tweets. I stamped him in black and colored in all the details using Marvy le Plume II markers. I raised him up on dimensional adhesive to give some lift to the card and focal point image. I plan to use this card as a teacher thank you at the end of school this year.
