Using the Versa Mark Marker

Hi Everyone and welcome to the weekend.  For some of us it is a long weekend with Victoria Day falling on the Monday.  It is a cloudy day and not very warm, so I'm very glad that I cleaned off the deck yesterday.  Even though it wasn't warm, at least the sun was shining.

The card I am sharing today is for a friend who lost her 12 year old grandson to cancer.  Such a sad occassion and my thoughts are truly with her.  No one should have to go through the loss of a child or grandchild.

The inspiration for this card came from Kristin Moore over at Split Coast Stampers


Stamps: Fifth Avenue Floral, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Whisper White, Sahara Sand

Ink: Old Olive
Accessories: Versa Mark (Ink Pad and Marker), White Embossing Powder, Whisper White Grosgrain Ribbon, Cricut George Shapes (Cylinder)

1. The card base is Whisper White and the dimensions are 51/2 x 41/4.

2. On the Sahara Sand layer, the Lilies from the Fifth Avenue Floral set were stamped randomly using Versa Mark and embossed with White EP, the stems were stamped using Old Olive. The lilies were coloured in using the Versa Mark marker and stamens coloured with old olive.

3. The sentiment was stamped using old olive on the whisper white tag and attached with dimensional.

4. Finally the ribbon was attached to the bottom of the layer.

Now, I'm off to clean up my office.............yuck

Until next time......


  1. Karen I am sure your friend will really appreciate this card! I am so sorry for her loss...I can't even imagine!

  2. As Jenn has said I can't even imagine what your friend must be going through....but by receiving such a beautiful card and knowing your thoughts are with her will give her strength.

    This is such a versatile stamp set.


I am grateful for all comments and thanks for taking the time to leave one.
