Card 1: Thank you For Being A Friend
For this 5″ X 7″ card, I paired the Large Raindrops stencil with the Thank you for being a friend die. I used Distressed Oxide Inks to blend blue and greens for the verse. For the raindrops, I used Unicorn White pigment ink on navy cardstock and positioned it slightly on the diagonal. Later, I splattered white paint over the inked drops.
I used daisies from the stamp set, Fairytale Spinners from a previous release. I colored them in using Copic Sketch Markers in YG00, YG01, B05, Boo, BG13 and BG11. White iridescent sequins were glued to the front to finish the look.
Card 2: Just Because XOXO
This is another 5″ X 7″ card and it uses the new XOXO Background stamp. I stamped the design on 80lb Neenah Solar White cardstock using a brighter, medium blue ink. I added a few punched cardstock dots in aqua and yellow to some of the letter O openings.
I added a navy blue border at the bottom and sewed a double zigzag stitch design in white thread using my sewing machine. If you don’t have a machine, you can draw white faux stitches using a Uni-bell Signo White Gel Pen, too! I added the Just Because phrase that was released in the last I Love You release. The shadow was die cut in white and the letters in a vibrant yellow. The phrase was adhered using Scrapbook Adhesives White Foam Squares to make it pop off the page. I love the blue/yellow combo this card offers.
Card 3: Rainbows Will Be Back
For my slimline card measuring 3-1/2″ wide X 8-1/2″ tall, I stenciled the raindrops on the blue cardstock using Blueprint Sketch Distressed Oxide Ink. I love this stencil because it is very large – large enough to cover a slimline card (measures 6″ wide X 9-1/4″ tall). Once the ink dried, I used Copic markers in B34, B32 and B39 to accentuate the drops. I also used a Signo Uni-ball white gel pen for highlights on each drop and additional tiny drops in between the big drops.
I heat embossed in white on a navy cardstock strip, a phrase from the stamp set, You Got This stamp set. This is such a nice stamp set to have in your stash. It has wonderful encouragement phrases. I attached the blue sentiment strip to the card front by sewing each side edge together. A simple leafy stem from the Be Kind die set was cut from Canson XL Bristol Smooth watercolor paper inked with yellow-greens and splattered with blue watercolor paint (using Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors (48)) and tucked in behind the strip phrase.

Dear Bobbi – When I saw your “thank you for being a friend” card on a general SSS email that I got about the blog hop, my jaw dropped. I immediately clicked on it, thinking ‘Who made THAT gorgeous card?’ Well, Bobbi did, that’s who! I love, love, love the color gradient and the choices of color, the raindrops in the background, the sentiment (I think of the Golden Girls – love that show and who would have guessed that Betty White would outlive the others?). I just think the whole card is a smash success!! I also like the XO card a lot. You have talent coming out your ears, girl! Health and happiness to you in ’21!
