More Get Well Wishes


It's my team's turn to post samples at Pile it On this week. The DT is split into two teams and we rotate posting every other week. I really like that approach. It allows for a bigger team so more designers get the opportunity to be on the team, plus it gives us all a break, only having to produce samples ever other week. We have some really terrific designers so I hope you will stop by to check out this week's challenge, which is to make a get well card. Since our sponsor this week is Magnolia, I decided to dust off one of my two lonely Magnolia stamps. This one had never even seen ink! I don't know why, but I really struggled with this card. It took me about 7 hours, with a couple of major interruptions, so probably at least 4 solid hours of work here. I fiddled around a lot, trying different layouts and embellishments. So what you see is what I FINALLY settled on.

The DP, both gingham and patterned, is part of the Wild Apsaragus collection from My Mind's Eye. I LOVE their DP. It's so rich and heavy, nice and textured and heavenly patterns. I've been wanting to use these sheets for quite awhile and I thought it would go nicely with this Tilda stamp. Tilda is colored with Copics and her get well card envie is glittered. The Hugs and Kisses stamp is from Rubbernecker and the ...and Get Well Wishes was done on my computer. I made the paper flowers using Spellbinders dies, brads are from SU, spacers and end caps from the jewery asle at craft stores and a Martha Stewart punch to make the strip of paper lace. Oh, and a little distressing and Close to Cocoa ink sponging.

Here are all the challenges I piled on for this card:


Blessings,
