Preview Day 1

~TCM Preview Day 1~

Welcome! Once again the time is upon us and we have lots of projects to show over the course of the next several days.

It's my favorite time of the month, and I am so glad you're joining us in the festivities!

Today, the girls at TCM are showcasing an upcoming new set, "Beautiful Hymns".
It is just lovely and full of inspirational and comforting quotes.

Here is my card using this set!

I know that sympathy or loss cards can sometimes be quite somber, and the colors of the cards don't often reflect an uplifting spirit. 
I wanted to make a card that was light, airy, and fresh. A card that resembled hope and a brighter tomorrow. 
{And I also really like making things that are pastel!}

Most of the paper on this card is from My Minds Eye, from the Follow Your Heart Collection
I used a chipboard frame from Tattered Angels, which I painted white, and a collection of other little embellishments from my stash, like the vintage button, ribbon, and keyhole.

The sentiment I used on this card is actually just a portion of the quote from the Beautiful Hymns stamp set from The Craft's Meow. I cut out each part with my scissors - seems like lately I've been doing a lot of that :)

For the stamped heart, I used a heart stamp and die combination from Stampin' Up.
And for the lace quarter-foil motif, I used this Memory Box die.

That is all from me today, folks, but I will be back tomorrow with more cards to show!

Until then, wishing you a wonderful day!


p.s. A stamp set will be given away to one
lucky commenter from the TCM blog.
