Haul Pics & Sympathy card

Hello Sunday! I created last night a sympathy card for a friend/family. My hubby loved it! I must admit I like it a lot. I wanted to use my Friendship Jar & Fillers set from PTI. I am loving playing with them. 
I used my Neenah Solar White cs for the base of my card. I stamped everything with Memento tuxedo black ink because I was going to use my Copics to color the bouquet. I made a video of this and some time this year (ha!) it'll post on youtube (i'll put it here too) after my internet provider decides to fix the outage (please Jesus, bring Uverse to my area, please!!!!). Since I have no idea how to color flowers (or anything) I googled violet bouquet pictures and I saw something that looked very similar to my stamp and went from there. This flower stamp didnt come with stems so I stamped the stems from another set of the Jars & Fillers. Now that I see it on the picture it would have been perfectly fine to leave it without the stems but I had already stamped the water so it looked weird to me without the stems. On the inside of the card I stamped a bible verse from the Beautiful Blessings set also from PTI. I have a feeling Im going to use this set A LOT!

Here are some of the things I received from both PTI & 2Peas. 
I'm not finished yet with the frame project I'm creating but I'll post it soon. 
This weekend coming up I have a 4 Day hubby & wife only and I am soo excited about that! This is a very first for us since I had my son 9.5 years ago, I think it's time, dont you? ha!
Happy Sunday!!!

I have a question Dayami, who makes the clear stamp block you use that has a handle on it in your youtube tutorial?

Dayami said...

Jen the acrylic block w handle is from Martha Stewart. Im not sure if its still available in Michaels but you can try Ebay.
Thanks for all the sweet words, ladies :)
God bless!
