get WELL soon

Hi everyone! Happy Hump Day – hope you’re all having a great week! Today is my post day on the Paper Wings Productions blog and I’m happy to share a DT inspiration project using the Flower Power stamp set along with the Sayings and Sentiments stamp set, Perfect Pearls and a Tim Holtz Idea-ology Buckle. I created a pretty get well card with a vintage feel.

I stamped several flowers from the Flower Power stamp set randomly over white cardstock with the Perfect Medium in the Perfect Pearls Jewel kit. The Perfect Medium stamped in a light brown which I thought was odd because I remembered it stamping clear the last time I used it several years ago, lol! I applied the green, blue, red and purple Perfect Pearls powders anyway and got a muted vintage look to all the colors. I guess that’s what happens when you use ‘aged’ Perfect Medium, lol! But I sure like the way it turned out! I lightly misted the panel with water to bind the powders so they don’t rub off. I cut the background and the rest of the white and brown bag cardstock layers with the matting dies.


I stamped the sentiment in Frayed Burlap distress ink on a narrow strip of white cardstock cut with a matting die from the same set, layered it on the brown bag cardstock, added a buckle and adhered it to the front. I finished the front with several flat-back pearls.


For the inside, I decorated the white layered panel with a leftover strip of the stamped florals and kraft cardstock used on the front. I left the inside blank for a handwritten message.

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  1. This is such a lovely card! I’m always looking for original “get well” cards and this is definitely an inspiring new take! I thought the addition of the buckle was so clever and really gives it a great sense of dimension and texture. I love the subtle look of the flowers and this all came together beautifully. Thank you for sharing your time and talents with us for this week’s Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!


  2. This turned out perfect, kind of a bit vintagy. I love the colors and design. At least you were able to use the medium, I’ve had things so long they turned rock hard and the only way to use them is as a paper weight =}. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Little Red Wagon Challenge this week!


  3. Love the “vintage” look to your flowers; super clever idea to add colour to your cards by using perfect pearls. Thanks for joining us at House of Cards this month.
