Heartfelt Sympathy

Happy Thursday everyone! 1 more day and the weekend is here!!
 Now, for today's card- it's a sympathy card. I've been card-making for years and never made a sympathy card, so I hope you enjoy my card as it's out of the norm for me. :o)
I stamped the Lily Image from Inkadinkado onto white cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored the image with Spectrum Noir Markers. Stickles in yellow were used for the stamens and I used Glossy accents on the vase.
I then inked around the image with Red Ink from Recollections and used the Spellbinders Circle die cut.
I layered the image onto chevron DP paper from Recollections that was die cut with the Die-namics Blueprints 3 die from My favorite Things and layered this onto red cardstock from American Crafts.  I then pierced 2 of the corners and used White clear pearls from Recollections in the opposite corners. I finished it off with a white ribbon and layered it onto the white card base with pop-dots. The Sentiment was self-generated with Word and die cut with the smaller Spellbinders Circles. I finished it off with red ink to match the image.
I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
Thank you for stopping by and Happy Stampin'!

I noticed your card at the sentimental sundays challenge. I love how it has colour in it, a warm, comforting colour. It has a positive note to it, like instead of crying along, you offer a hug and a shoulder to cry upon.

TAGplorations~January Challenge

Woohoo! It's time for another TAGplorations Challenge!

This month's theme is WINTER and the optional twist is: TEXTURE PASTE
Here's my tag 

I started with the largest Manila Tags Die cut from MDF board and applied some pieces of cardboard. I then applied a layer of Gesso. Once dry, I applied Prima Platinum Crackle Texture Paste in random areas and let it air dry so I could get the crackle effect. 
I then used Lindy's Stamp Gang Sprays in browns and blues to add some color to my background. Then I added the Snowman I  created using different sized circles cut from scrap papers in my stash. I used Vintage Photo Distress Crayon on the edges for some highlights and dimension. I created his arms from the TH Bird Branch Die and tied the Sentiment (TH Christmas Word Bands) with twine. 

I finished with the Uppercase Alpha in the bottom as that's my wish...for Peace. 
And some Paper Smooches Stars Die cuts finished off my tag.

I sure hope you join us for this fun challenge and I…

STAMPlorations~ Sanna's Stencil Release Hop!

Woohoo! STAMPlorations is having a Hop showcasing the lovely Sanna Lippert's Stencil Designs!
Be sure to  check out all her amazing me, you'll LOVE THEM!! 
I used Trees 1 and Flowers 2 and made an art journal page:

I used my Mini Art Journal ..which was a kiddies MDF book. I applied DecoArt NEON acrylic paints  with a brayer. Once dry, I applied a little white gesso with the brayer to soften the background. I then created a Circle mask from acetate and used the same bright acrylic paints thru the FLOWERS 2 stencil . This mask allowed for me to create the "flower bubbles" on my page. 
I then used black acrylic paint thru the TREES 1 Stencil as I felt my page needed some black. I then used my Jane Davenport pen around my "bubbles" and doodled to highlight them.  I finished with my sentiment from Create Bold Sentiments set and the CUTplorations Uppercase Die set
I sure hope I've inspired you today and be sure to continue hoppin' as there ar…
