Good Morning Ladies,
I made today's "SomethingFloral For Friday' card with a Free stamp set that came with 'Simply Cards & Papercraft', the stamps and matching dies are from 'Christina Griffiths' her business is 'Card Making Magic'.
Sorry about the glare but this is the stamp set, it's A4 in size, you also got a die set.....
Again, sorry about glare, lighting was terrible last night. This die set cuts the main flower stamp, the Butterfly, a bow and a leag, they are all really good sizes.
I stamped the large flower stamp 3 times around the top of my piece of Whisper White paper, in Versamark ink, I added White Embossing powder and heat set, I then added the leaves in same way. I coloured my flowers with my Stampin Blends, OMG! They honestly blend so perfectly, I have both Promarkers and the Original Spectrum Noir pens but couldn't acheive a decent blend with either, these work beautifully, you get a light and dark pen for each colour so no fussing with finding matching shades. I may do a live tutorial just to show how fantastic they are.
After colouring my flowers and leaves with blends I picked up 'Worn Lipstick' Distress Oxide and blended it into the whole of my card. To add some detail and texture I used my water brush to pick up some 'Pink Pirouette' and 'Balmy Blue' ink and tapped my brush to give light splattering of colour.
I stamped my sentiment in 'Balmy Blue' and cut with a Banner punch and placed it onto a Mat of Balmy Blue.
I also used these two colours to mat and layer my card.
Something a little different but i like it.
I got the idea for the card from the many samples in the magazine.
Mun should be discharged from hospital today, all being well, she will be on Antibiotics for a while, for both a chest and Water infection. Having spoken to her GP they will double her dose of anti Epilepsy drugs fot a couple of weeks to see if that affects her 'seizures', if not she will be referred to a Neurologist for further tests.
She will also have an appointment with the COPD nurse, who will assess her to see if she needs an OT assessment. We are going over on Sunday as planned. I want to try and encourage her to stop smoking, she only ever smoked a few each day but now she has 20+, which is causing her to suffer even more with her breathing etc and she will not use her inhaler, despite both my sisters and her dear friend trying to push her.
Well thats all from me today, I hope you all have a good day.
Love and hugs to all,
