Words Of Comfort - Day 5

Good morning and welcome back for Day 5 of the Papertrey Ink January release countdown! I have a couple of additional projects to share with you today featuring my new set, Words Of Comfort (available January 15th at 10pm EST). First, I'd like to thank all of you again for the enthusiasm you've shown over the past several days for this set. Who knew that a stamp set focused on this topic would get such a positive response? I appreciate every one of you and I thank you for your kindness.

On to the projects!

My first card today is a little "get well" number. This sentiment could be used for more serious circumstances, too, but I chose to go with a more light-hearted approach. You know, like for a head cold or something.

I began by covering a white card base with Spring Rain polka dotty paper. Next, I stamped my sentiment onto a 3/8" strip of white cardstock using True Black ink. I also stamped a subtle grounding oval (from Sunflower Bouquet) onto that same strip before adhering it to my card front. I added another narrow strip of white cardstock underneath the first one for a little bit of added interest.

Next, I die cut and stamped the soup bowl from Comfort Food onto white cardstock using Pure Poppy ink. I cut a small slit in the bowl and inserted a spoon (from the same set) that I die cut from Soft Stone cardstock and stamped with gray ink. I mounted that with foam tape to my card front atop the grounding oval on the sentiment strip.

I stamped the steam from Comfort Food above my soup bowl with Fresh Snow ink and embellished it with white flocking. Finally, I rounded the bottom two corners.

My second card is another general show of support. The nice thing about the sentiments on this card is that they could work for so many situations.

I began by stamping the Spring Moss card front with Background Basics: Needlepoint in Fresh Snow ink. Then, I stamped the stems and leaves from Mum's The Word using Pinefeather ink. Next, I die cut the Christmas Label shape and the two largest mums from Mum's The Word from Rustic White cardstock. I stamped the label shape with my sentiment (two phrases combined for one message) using Pinefeather ink.

The largest mum was stamped with an Autumn Rose/Scarlet Jewel rock 'n roll combo while the smaller mum was stamped with a Sweet Blush/Autumn Rose combo. I adhered the label and smaller mum to the card front with flat adhesive. The larger mum was mounted with foam tape for a bit of dimension. I added a small bow to the flower stems with Rustic Cream Button Twine and two Copic-colored pearls to the sentiment label.

Well, that's all for me today. Thank you for stopping by to check out more of Words of Comfort. Believe it or not, there are still two phrases in the set that I haven't had a chance to showcase yet. It's a packed little set, people. Perhaps I'll be back in the next day or so to share a project or two with those. In the meantime, it's another group post day! Nichole, Ashley, Betsy, Cristina, Danielle, Dawn, Erin, Heather, Laura, and Melissa have more inspiration to share with you. Tiffany is also sharing another peek of her set, so make sure to visit her, too. Have a good one!

Love both of your cards, Lizzie! Your first card perked me right up maybe because I'm suffering from a nasty cold right now?! - but more likely because it's just beautiful! Love all the little details you added. The second card is so pretty - beautiful colors, delicate bg and layout. Love that both cards are CAS, too. These wonderful sentiments will be coming to live with me :)
