Spent some time this afternoon stamping with my friend Grayson working on a sympathy card I need to send to a young friend who just lost his mother.
For my main image from the "Thoughts & Prayers" stamp set I colored the stamp with my Rich Regals Watercolor Wonders crayons, spritzed the stamp lightly with water, and stamped it on SU! Watercolor Paper for a softer image. My sentiment is from the retired All Year Cheer I set, stamped in Chocolate Chip.
For my layers I used retired Baroque DP and Chocolate Chip card stock -- distressed the edges with my handy dandy distressing tool from the Cutting Kit-- and popped them up with SU! Dimensionals so I could slide my satin ribbon underneath. Vintage Brads anchor the corner and a little doodling around the edges give some extra dimension.
Thanks for looking, hug the ones you love, and have a great week!

Just a simple card, haven't stamped in quite awhile but needed some therapeutic relaxation...
I used some retired Bali Breeze Stampin Up! designer paper and dotted the centers of the flowers with Gold Stickles glitter glue to give them some pop.
An SU! rub-on provides the simple sentiment, and my Corner Rounder softened the edges just a bit.
Thanks for looking -- hopefully it won't be as long between posts as it has been. Have a great weekend!!
