Get Well Thoughts Card

Hello Stampers! Today I have a Get Well Card for you. I send a lot of these during cold and flu season. They are great to have on hand because you never know when someone needs a cheery note to feel better.

I was inspired by Connie Stewart to make this card. It’s amazing how a little stamped texture and strips of a different color can spark up an otherwise flat looking card. For the background texture I used color on color (Marina Mist Ink on Marina Mist Cardstock).


The card base is Marina Mist with a bit of So Saffron and Very Vanilla for the sentiment. The front panel is actually folded over and the So Saffron is tucked under the folded flap. Then another piece of So Saffron is added along the edge. 

Card Measurements:

Marina Mist – Base, 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 1″ and 4 1/4″; scraps to punch out the flowers

So Saffron – 2″ x 5 1/2″ cut into two 1″ pieces

Very Vanilla – 2 1/2″ x 4″

Maybe you are wondering where I got the yellow rhinestones…I colored the clear rhinestones with a yellow Sharpie. I have a set of Sharpie colors to change up my rhinestones.

Those adorable little flowers are made from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack. It is retired but if you’ve been using Stampin’ Up! products for a few years there’s a good chance you have this punch. If not, and you’d like the set…call or email me and I’ll see if I can still get you the set. Those Itty Bitty sets are so handy and I’ll never get rid of mine.

Paper – Marina Mist, So Saffron, Very Vanilla

Accessories – Wild Wasabi Stampin’ Write Marker, Yellow Sharpie, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack (R)



This card should cheer up someone who isn’t feeling well, don’t you think?

Stay healthy and Happy Stamping!

This week’s Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge palette is:

PPA 191 Colors

This palette proved to be a very good challenge for me since it took me out of my comfort zone completely.  Here’s what I came up with…hope you like it!

PPA 191 Challenge

If you have followed my blog for any length of time you know I love the Stampin’ Up! flower punches and I’m kind of hooked on polka dots.  I kept the design simple and stayed with the 3 colors in the palette.

PPA 191 Challenge Close Up

From this close up you can see that I gave the Blossom and Pansy Punches some depth by stamping the large flower from Peaceful Petals and I also used some sponging.  I used the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder (a FREE SAB choice) to jazz up the Gumball Green border a bit.
