Raspberry Suite #13


I love love love these colors together! I don't think I would have ever put them together on my own but luckily... Dawn made me! :)

Michael's aunt, Marie, is currently in the hospital after having some surgery. I thought these would make great colors for a get better soon card. I pulled out one of my newest PTI sets and got to work! I embossed the background with the SU Small Dots Texturz plate. I sponged Certainly Celery all over it in hopes the dots would stand out more. I think you can see them in the pic... if not... just use your imagination! :)

I also had an idea to make a card from Carver. I may just give Marie this card from all of us and keep the 1st one on hand for use later. I think she is going to have a long recovery so she might appreciate another card down the road.


I have seen something similar to this somewhere before but can't remember where. It was either a child's artwork or their hand print used on a card. I loved it and haven't forgotten about it.

My nieces and nephew (and Carver) call Marie... Aunt Ree. There was a lot of blank space because of the spacing of little C's fingers. I added some thickers to spell out Ree to help take up some of the space. Not a perfect card but... hopefully she will like it! I would!!

Hope you all have a wonderful Thursday! It is almost time for the weekend.... woo hoo!

I love both cards you made for Dawn's challenge! I made mine yesterday too... and used the exact same stamp, lol. I guess great minds think alike! The card with Carver's handprint is too cute. I would image Marie will definitely have a smile on her face after receiving that card.

Ann said...

Eeee! You know I love this--polka dots, buttons, a butterfly...SO pretty! I'm sure she'll love it, and Carver's card is absolutely adorable as well! They're sure to make her smile!

This button card is the cutest EVER! I love it! I have had my eye on that set....I think I've mentioned that before....but this card has completely sold me on it! Anyone from Papertray Ink out there? Kelley shoul get commission when I purchase this set! LOL! And the card with Carver's handprint is very special. It would bring tears to my eyes to receive a card like that....I think she'll LOVE it! Kudos to you on all your fabulous ideas!

this is one of my favorite color combo's - my mom's laundry room is done in these colors...I should do the same to mine, maybe I wouldn't mind doing the laundry then :)

Yeah, those buttons are so delicate, so is the stamp. Great card!

muriel said...

Very nice, I love both of them

Jessica said...

They're both so great! The one with your son's hand is precious and I'm sure will mean a lot to your husband's Aunt. The first one is so cute!! love the butterfly and button flowers!

LOVE the butterfly with the button bits flower. I am going to have to try that. Way to rock this color combo.

It's a good life!

WHAT FABULOUS WORK! I love BOTH cards! You are SO at ease with these colors! What fun!

Scrapping Julie said...

awwww. so great, both of them

Karen said...

Both cards are wonderful, Kelley and I'm sure it will be a major pick me up to have a handcrafted card to look at and read. These colors are So happy, I just love them. Love the buttons and the scalloped grid square in the first one and the handprint and thickers in the second one. I do that with my kids handprints for thank you cards for their birthdays sometimes. I think a kidlets' handprint is such a happy thing! :>

MsOktober said...

Beautiful! Anyone would feel better after getting one of these cards :)

KatieTurtle said...

tee hee...was the handprint card an inspiration from the Bday card for my MIL?
