I named myself The Crafting Professor, since I'm a crafter, and I'm a college professor. I went through many, many years of graduate school, and the best source of relaxation and stress relief was being in my craft room or going to a local crop. Back then, I never told anyone that I was a full-time graduate student. I was waiting for the day I would scrapbook my graduation page. Now, I run the ScrapbookerPhD challenge blog (http://scrapbookerphd.blogspot.com), and am bringing my passion for crafting and teaching together. But here, at The Crafting Professor, I'm just sharing my work with like-minded crafters from all over the world.

Speedy Recovery

It's time for another card challenge with Cardz TV stamps. I'm thrilled that the challenge is to use ribbon. If you are like me and many other crafters, you have ribbon in all shapes and sizes and colors... everywhere in your craft space. I keep little remnants of ribbon JUST in case. 

I have a family member in the hospital right now, and decided to create a get well card. I started by choosing my sentiment from the CardzTV set, Heartfelt Wishes. I also knew that I wanted to color flowers next to this sentiment since I wasn't going to be sending actual flowers for the hospital room. The flowers I used are from Mark's Finest Papers, Heinrich Collection. I used oranges and yellows to color the flowers and added small dots of gold in the center of the flowers. 

To finish the card, I added a bow and a metal photo corner layered on patterned paper. 


  1. Gorgeous card!! Love that pretty flower image!! Have a great day.

  2. This is such a pretty card. I love the flower image and bow. Great job!
