Warm colors and a touch of nature – that’s what I set out to embrace when I made a get well card for this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge. Here’s my card:
And here’s the banner for the challenge by my friend, Donna Mikasa, that inspired my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Two Stamps. My simple card features two stamp sets from Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Occasions Catalog – the image from the Just Because Host Set (use your Stampin’ Rewards on an order over $150 to purchase this set for $13) and a sentiment from the Humming Along stamp set. here’s a look at the Just Because Host stamp set: I love the sentiment – “Hope you feel better really soon.” Sending hopes and prayers for a speedy recovery seems less harsh than the “demand” that someone “get well soon.” I pulled the sentiment from the Humming Along stamp set:
- Stampin’ Blends. I love my Stampin’ Blends – the alcohol markers allow us to artistically blend colors or just color with a solid application. I used Mossy Meadow and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends to color the potted plant on my card. I colored 3/4 of each leaf (from the tip to the base) with the Light Mossy Meadow marker. I then colored a small portion of the base with the Dark Mossy Meadow marker and then pulled the colors together again with the Light Mossy Meadow Marker. There are so many ways to blend and find a light source – I just color. I didn’t blend the pot that holds the plant – I just alternated each of the elements of the pop with the different shades.

- Earthy Colors. The greens on this card are pulled from the gorgeous page from Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper. I love these leaves – such a gorgeous print. Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in the Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper:While the pack of papers doesn’t include Crumb cake, it just makes sense to pair with these greens. If you like this combination of Pear Pizzazz, Crumb Cake and Mossy Meadow, please save this:
