Thoughts and Prayers - Reverse Lenten Challenge Card

Crafters -

For the next several weeks (during Lent), I will be showcasing the card designs we did at my Reverse Lenten Challenge Class on February 15th.

Here's the basics:
  • We made 40 notecards using the Whisper White and Crumb Cake Notecards and Envelopes
  • On March 1st, 2017, Ash Wednesday, we began giving or sending cards to others (there are 40 days of Lent, NOT INCLUDING Sundays)
  • Can be anyone - child's teacher, co-worker, grocery clerk, bank teller, mom in front of you who has her hands full! Anyone! You get to choose!

For this week's card, I chose to showcase the Thoughts and Prayers card. I had had this stamp set for a number of years. And it is ALWAYS one of my GO TO sets. We use this all the time at our church for our card ministry. This set is $26 for the wood mount and just $19 for the clear mount (make sure you have clear block e - you will need it!). The best part about this set is the sentiments. Thinking of You, Praying for you, Get Well Soon, and Sharing in your Sorrow as well as a few inside the card sentiments! The tree stamp works well for both men and women alike, making it a WONDERFUL generic card. BUT the flower spray is truly beautiful - especially when you use your markers and color the flowers individually!

Can you tell I like this stamp set?  :)

 All supplies used, and the links to purchase them, are listed at the end of this blog posting.
Thoughts and Prayers Card
Reverse Lenten Challenge Class
February, 2017
We used Soft Suede to ink the tree and the sentiment. And here's the fun part. Notice how the leaves are green (you may need to click the photo to enlarge it)? After stamping in the Soft Suede, we grabbed the Old Olive Marker (part of the Brights Color Family) and, using the brush tip, we just dabbed the shape of the leaves. Fast. Easy. Wonderful!

Added some Old Olive Baker's Twine with a mini glue dot - and viola! This card took WAY LESS than 10 minutes to complete!

Add the supplies listed below to your order and you will qualify for a Sale-A-Bration FREE item! The Designer Tee Sale-A-Bration stamp set would be a wonderful addition to use with Thoughts and Prayers. I Knew you could. Just Give it Some Time. Everything Will be OK. and the I Think I Can train would all be GREAT sentiments use!
