Quick & Simple: Tea for Two Get Well

Tea for Two Hexagon Get Well Stampin Up1

Springtime Get Well PLUS Gift Tag Idea

 

Offset ovals give this springtime greeting a fun edge.  I created this card with the new Sale-a-bration stamp set called Madison Avenue Clear.  It has many flower building options! The possibilities are endless! Of course, layering these pieces in multiple colors required the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig for easy alignment.  A cheery greeting to say get well!

Get Well with Calypso Coral

Get Well International Bazaar Stampin Up 7

 

Pool Party cheers me up! I hope this pairing of Pool Party and Calypso Coral will send bright and cheery Get Well Wishes in this project.  I love stamping the same color ink as paper, for an elegant texture effect.  It was fun to embellish with the corner detail stamp from the Affection Collection Wood Stamp Set from the 2012 Holiday Catalog.  I think it is becoming my favorite set from the catalog! :)

I took a a picture of my envelope embellishment.  It is so much fun to carry the theme to the envelope too!

 

Don’t forget the basic tools that are available in the 2012 Holiday catalog that can be used year-round, like the Festive Paper-Piercing Pack that includes the stencil for the Label Collection Framelits and many more.  This is a must-have for piercing crafters!

Comfort Cafe: Get Well Wishes

Comfort Cafe Designer Series Paper is my new favorite! Within a few days of opening it, I have made several projects with it… I just can’t get enough!  Most of the patterns in this pack have flowers, there are some subtle geometric prints and neutral options – like the Soft Suede pattern that created a subtle background for my centerpiece Flower.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here, I followed the floral inspiration of the DSP through the card with a flower cut out from the Everything Eleanor Wood Stamp Set and a floral silhouette from the Just Believe Wood Stamp Set using the Marker technique.  I find Comfort Cafe to be very soothing! Perfect for a Get Well Card!
