I received some heart breaking news today that a dear friend of mine who I met through Stampin’ Up! died this past weekend after fighting lung cancer (and she didn’t even smoke). I last saw her back in April for a short period of time when I attended the first few hours of OnStage in Ft. Worth. She had been on my mind all last weekend and I had intended to reach out to chat with her this weekend but we ran out of time.
I first met Beth back in 2010, when I was attending my first Stampin’ Up! Convention in Salt Lake City (“Share What You Love”). I needed a roommate and had posted on a message board and that’s how we met. Every year after that when we both attended we were roommates and always had a blast. Here is a picture of us at “The Rock” after we toured the Stampin’ Up! offices in 2011:
Beth’s favorite color is purple so in her honor and memory I designed my project today with her in mind. I hope you like it. It was inspired by a card that Mary Fish cased that was created by Ruth Petsel.
Here are the Stampin’ Up! products that I used in the design of this card which can be added to your online shopping cart by clicking on the thumbnails below:
I also used the following Stampin’ Write Markers to color the backside of the vellum images: Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather and Mossy Meadow. These markers are not sold separately and are available as a set of 40 (with a storage case) #147154 $123.00; or by Color Collection: Neutrals #147158 $30.00; Brights #147157 $30.00; Subtles #147156 $30.00; Regals #147155 $30.00.
If you have any questions regarding the design or measurements of this card, please ask.
Be sure to take some time to tell your friends and family how much they mean to you today – tomorrow may be too late. I appreciate each and every one of you and send you all a virtual hug.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you leave here inspired to put stamps to ink to paper. Until next time, stamp on my friends.
