A Spoon Full of Sugar - Challenge 158 - Get Well Soon

My boss has just had keyhole surgery so I thought I'd make her a card, and the spoon full of sugar challenge fitted the bill perfectly. The idea for this card was from a tutorial I bought from Jenny Moors who is a Stampin Up demonstrator in the UK. I didn't quite have the right papers that she suggested but I think it looks ok. The project is called Hopeful Thoughts. I used a stamp set called Hopeful Thoughts. Instead of inking the stamp you were to colour it in using pens. This was a new technique for me. I used Whispers Strokes pens. It wasn't hard to do, but I have to be truthful that it took me 3 attempts before I was happy with how it looked. I also used a pen on the sentiment. I used a Swiss Dots embossing folder on the background paper and added a few pearls in the centre of some of the flowers. I hope it cheers my boss up when she receives it.


  1. It looks more than ok - it's fabulous :) Your boss will love it! xxx

  2. Beautiful card - the pearls finish it off perfectly.

  3. Oh I love your gorgeous, beautiful card.
