Just sharing......

It's been pretty quiet around here the last week; we've been at my Mom's.  I thought I'd fill the void with a share of some cards I sent awhile back for the Lasting Hearts Card Drive.

I decided to make a series of cards in pinks and blues, using the same ingredients, just changing up the colors and embellishments, and keeping them as flat as I could.  Here are a few of them.


supplies: The Ton Rose Terrace Background, Hero Arts Bubble Gum ink, Winnie & Walter Audrey's Cutaways scalloped die, Simon/Hero Arts Prayers die and stamp set

Lasting Hearts6

I used the same supplies as above, but colored the big background stamp first with watercolor markers (Tombow/Memento) before stamping.

Lasting Hearts1

Same supplies again, only I stamped the background using Simon's White pigment ink on Hero Arts Carnation layering paper, and added some Altenew Painted Flowers embossed in white on vellum, coloring only the leaves from behind.

I also wanted to send a warm welcome to my newest follower, Kimberley.  Thank you!

Thanks for visiting today; I hope I'll be back in the swing of things again soon.  In the meantime, I plan to get outside and enjoy the close-to-60-degree temps we're supposed to have today!  


  1. Wonderful card set! I really like how each technique is a little different, but still so pretty!

  2. These are really pretty Lin! So nice to see the various way to ink up that beautiful stamp!!

  3. Gorgeous set!! Love the variations with this Rose Terrance background stamp (isn't it lovely, eh?). Spring is near....I promise :)

  4. Oh, Lin, they are all just gorgeous! And for such a worthy cause. Enjoy that wonderful warmth - it was 58 degrees here yesterday and this morning it's snowing - winter and spring are fighting with each other - hope spring wins soon! ♥

  5. Beautiful set of cards Lin. There is something so magical about that sweet scalloped panel on the white card front. It's all girly and "awe-ing".

  6. Just love your set of prayers cards, Lin! Especially love the blue one - so soft with the touches of green!

  7. So beautiful! I think these cards are perfect for the drive in every way.

  8. What lovely cards Lin - love the blue one and how you have let the marker pens leave a slightly uneven impression.

  9. Beautiful cards thanks for sharing!!!


Thank you so much for your kind comments - they make my day!
