August Challenge – Focus on Sentiments

We hope you’ve hopped around our Blog Hop with the Action Wobbles folks. You’re going to love playing with those springs! Be sure to comment on the blogs in the hop for more chances to win some!

We also hope you’ve been sorting through your sentiment stamps at home (preferably your Stampendous ones) to enter our challenge this month with the Focus on Sentiments. Today we welcome BlogStar Rhea Weigand back with a beautiful Thank You card that puts the sentiment first!


Hi Rhea Here again….Yup, I’m back,  I am doing and feeling great!  I wanted to do a special little something for all of you.  I was truly moved by the love and support I received from not only my design team family but the Stampendous friends as well.

I’ve been home for almost 2 weeks.  I am doing so well with my left side improving daily!  It still gets a little lazy toward the end of the day….but seriously, who doesn’t!!  I am back to working in the advertising world during the day, designing by night and mopping my floors whenever I think about it!!  No the strokes did not affect my brain!  I discovered that, although I can do most of the things I use to do, there are a couple that are not so easy.  Mopping is one of them!!!!  Try mopping your floor with your opposite hand, and you can understand…or better yet, try mopping with your feet!  LOL, if you try this you need to see my Neurologist!

There really are no words to express my gratitude to all of you, so I did what card makers do and made a card.

Here I’ve used SSC1105 Daisy Stem Trio, SSC173 Wedding Corners, Black Detail and Pirate Gold Detail Embossing Powders.

I used my white super smooth card stock and with my inking tool worked Victorian Velvet distress ink and Dusty Concord distress ink into the background.  I added a little black soot for the shading.  With the Dusty Concord ink I stamped the Wedding Corners in all 4 corners and filled in a little on the open edges. Now you can stamp and emboss the Daisies.  With a coloring tool or chalking tool use Dusty Concord to color the pedals of the daisies.  Now repeat process on your smaller matching piece.  Stamp and emboss your sentiment first so you know where to stamp the daisies.  With 1/8′ Sookwang double-sided tape run a strip across the bottom and cover with Gold Glitter Ritz.  With Glossy Accents generously place in centers of daisies then cover with tiny black beads.  Finish covering the petals with glossy accents and let dry.  Assemble and you are done.

Hugs to all, Rhea

  1. So, so glad to hear how well you’re doing, Rhea & clearly your sense of humor is helping! Your card is absolutely gorgeous! I love gold embossing powder, but have never colored my image like this & I have tons of little beads I’ve never really gotten to work like you did for the flower centers. You’ve inspired me & I’m going to get a card made for the challenge. Hugs, Greta
