watercolor + whimsical flowers

this week i needed a card for a friend & co-worker who is moving away. she will still be apart of our everyday lives thank goodness but from a far. i wanted her to know how much she will be missed.
i stamped and embossed the flowers in white. then i used distress inks to watercolor.
i die cut my panel with a stitched rectangle die to create a frame. i adhered the frame to my card front and then used foam adhesive to adhere the panel inside the frame.

for my sentiments i used the essentials by ellen totally awesome stamp set and the positive word die set. i cut awesome 4 times, 3 desert storm and 1 gold foil, and then i layered them to make a dimensional word (love that technique).

i'm getting back into the swing of things after a little down time and today i'm over in the classroom at ellen hutson llc, trying out a technique that's new to me, velveteen stamping.

love this bear!

we are not feeling super around our house this week so there hasn't been too much crafting. so sad! but i did want to share a little valentine i made for my pen pals, Libby and her mom Jolene. 

We send each other stickers because we're cool like that and the new All Inside bear by Julie Ebersole from Essentials by Ellen is perfect!

Happy Thursday!
