Hitting a Brick Wall with CYCI #70

Sympathy Vase
Did you know that the Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack is one of my all time favorite? Nope you wouldn’t because I love it so much I don’t want to use it up. I have issues, I know (LOL). I love that it’s so realistic looking.

Today’s card is a challenge card from Can You Case It and the challenge is anything you want with May Flowers.  I’m in Northern California and we didn’t get much rain in April, so our flowers were a little far and few between. Well, except for these little bitty one’s I plucked from my craft room.

Sympathy Vase

Why did I make a sympathy card with these two images? Have you faced a situation that you felt like you hit your head on a brick wall? We’ve all been there. But knowing that there is mystery and beauty behind the wall is what helped me deal with whatever I was going though.

MAGGIE MADE TIPS: Not in cash, but great crafting recommendations.

  • Water vase. I made it with the Bow Builder punch. I used a piece of Vellum to punch out the vase. For the water in the vase I used Tempting Turquoise from the Stampin’ Write Markers Brights Collection and colored in the vellum. To adhere the stems I dabbed a tiny bit of Crystal Effects. I also dabbed it on the outside of the vase, but it’s harder to get the wet effect on photo.
  • Window frame. To make the frame I nested two Squares Collection framelits together and it cut out a perfect frame!
