Now that I've made all of the formal introductions, let's get onto the projects!

Let Us Take Care of You Card

I am just LOVING the new Take It Easy set along with the Cozy Bed dies. They are AMAZING and I see so many possibilities with them! I decided to do something a bit different and add a few basic lines to the bedspread portion of the Cozy Bed dies to make a quilt. This was so fun and easy to do too!

Quilt

I used a black pen to add some basic lines and then went back in and colored the various squares with Copic markers. Once the coloring was completed, I added some stitching with a white gel pen.

Sentiment

This sentiment from Take It Easy is one of my favorites, it is such a thoughtful thing to say, and I know it holds true with many people that I know. Especially some of my best girlfriends. The Cozy Bed dies are the perfect size to add a sentiment either below or above, and as you can see I added my above here.

Newspaper

This newspaper from the Take It Easy set is just so clever, Erin does it every time! The newspaper image actually has a large blank spot on the cover, and she included lots of fun headlines that you can add in, depending on your recipient. It is just another detail that allows you to customize your projects and make someone feel extra special and loved.

Now that you have seen a project from me, here are some of the amazing things that the team has created!

 

Amy

Ashley says, "What better way to uplift someone's spirits during a time of triumph or recovery, than a handmade card and gift. Take It Easy is a lovely new stamp set full of comforting illustrations and sentiments. The new tissue box die is super cute and very easy to assemble, yet is so purposeful during times of illness. Check out a quick and easy gift ensemble I've prepared for the sick and shut in."

Betsy

Betsy says, "What a wonderful collection of products Erin has designed for us, making it fun to create cards and gifts for loved ones that are a bit under the weather!  I found that many of the accessories in the Take it Easy set are sized perfectly for the Dress Up Dolls, who are also the perfect size to snuggle up in the Cozy Bed die!  I pulled out the oldie but goodie Strawberry Patch set to create a cheerful berry-themed get well basket – I hope you'll stop by to check it out!"

Dawn

Dawn says, "Creating "Get Well" type cards just got a whole lot more fun, thanks to this new collection of stamps and dies!  I had so much fun creating custom bedsheets for the bed on my card, using stamps and the new Cozy Bed dies!  I love that you can stamp bedsheets for any age and gender, with a ton of different stamps you probably already have in your collection!  Pop over to my blog to check out my card and my little get well gift set, too."

Heather

Heather says, "It's no fun when you or a loved one get sick, but it is nice to get a little sunshine when you are under the weather. A card is nice, but why not amp it up a bit with a gift basket that includes a few things that will pamper the recipient and help them on their way to recovery."

Melissa says, "Helping someone feel better through paper-crafting is such a healing thing to do for someone special and for yourself as well.  As I sat down to create this gift ensemble for someone who had the Winter Blues, I found myself feeling so grateful for card-making and paper-crafting in my life and thankful for the joy it brings me.  The new Take it Easy stamp set and dies and coordinating "Feel Better" products make the creating even more enjoyable."
