Stampin’ Up! Hold on To Hope Card

When someone’s going through a hard time or when they could use a pick-me-up or if they’ve lost a loved one…

What better way to say – I’m thinking of you and am here for you – then a card.

That’s what today’s card is all about.  I just love the sentiment – Hold on to Hope!

My card starts off with Fresh Fig cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper and matted it on Blushing Bride cardstock.  I then wrapped around it a Fresh Fig bow.

Next I stamped the cross in Blushing Bride ink and butterfly in Mossy Meadow ink from the Hold on to Hope Stamp Set and cut then out using the Cross of Hope Framelits.

I stamped the sentiment from the Hold on to Hope stamp set in Fresh Fig ink and cut it out using the Bunch of Banners and adhered it using Stampin Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Roots Sympathy Card

Label. Cut. Package. Repeat.

I’ve been a busy little bee getting my product shares ready.

The best part of product share prep is getting my hands on all the new product.  I’ve fallen in love with the Basic Backed Sequins – GORGEOUS! And the Mini Ruffled Ribbons – the catalog just doesn’t do them justice.

Tomorrow I start cutting DSP – can’t wait!

My card today starts off with Very Vanilla cardstock.  I cut a banner from a pattern from the Nature’s Poem DSP.

I took a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and another pattern from the Nature’s Poem DSP and offset them from one another.

I used the Nature’s Roots Thinlits and Blackberry Bliss cardstock to cut out a leaf.  I love how these thinlits both cut out, as well as emboss images!  I stamped the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss ink from the Better Together stamp set.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s TGIF Challenge

Stampin’ Up! Waterfront Sympathy Card

There’s so much going on right now between the new Annual Catalog and all the retiring products.

It can be hard to stay on top of everything that’s going on.  I send a weekly newsletter for this exact reason!

Head over here to get my weekly newsletter to make sure you’re not missing out on anything!

Today’s card starts off with Sahara Sand cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Myths & Magic Designer Paper and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.  I wound around it a Crushed Curry Baker’s Twine bow and adhered it to the card front. 

I cut out an oval using the Stitched Shapes Framelits and used the Waterfront Stamp Set to stamp my scene on it Sahara Sand (mountains), Dapper Denim (stamped off for a lighter shade for the water), Crushed Curry (sun).

I stamped the sentiment from the Better Together Stamp Set in Crushed Curry ink and adhered it over the oval.  Lastly I added a few Crushed Curry enamel shapes.

Enjoy!

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches.

Stampin’ Up! – Sympathy Card – PP388

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a sketch challenge.  Happy hopping!

I was really inspired by the colors (see the challenge below) to make a sympathy card.  These are my least favorite kind of cards to make because you know that if/when you have to mail them, it’s because someone is grieving.

Yet, it’s a way to show your love and support for them and hopefully lift their spirits, even just for a moment.

My card starts off with Wisteria Wonder cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper Wonder cardstock which I embossed using the flower Petal Pair embossing folder.  I then matted it on Elegant Eggplant cardstock and adhered it to the card.

Next I stamped the sentiment from the Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Elegant Eggplant cardstock, sprinkled it with white embossing powder, and heat set it.  I cut it out and the scalloped Wister Wonder circle behind it using the Layering Circles Framelits.

Behind the sentiment I snuck in a die cut leaf from the Petals & More Thinlits using Tranquil Tide cardstock.  I also stamped the flower image from the Petals Palette Stamp Set on some Vellum paper in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with white embossing powder it, and heat set it.  I cut it out using the same Petals & More Thinlits.  Finally I added a banner from the Fresh Florals DSP behind it all.  I adhered everything down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s The Paper Players challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt Blooms

When it comes to sympathy cards, I like to keep my cards simple and (almost always) monochromatic.

The Heartfelt Blooms Stamp Set from the Sale-a-bration catalog is perfect for such a card.

I start out with Rich Razzleberry cardstock for my card base.  I then adhered on the front a pattern from the Tutti-Frutti DSP.

Next I stamped the flower image from the Heartfelt Blossoms Stamp Set in Rich Razzleberry ink on a piece of Whisper White cardstock which I mounted on some Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  Before adhering it to the card front, I snuck a piece of a Delicate Doily underneath it.

I stamped the sentiment in Rich Razzleberry ink from the Heartfelt Blossoms Stamp Set on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using a framelit from the Petals & More Thinlits.  I adhered this using Stampin Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

My card was inspired by the sketch challenge at MFT Card Challenges this week.

Stampin’ Up! Petal Palette Sympathy

No one ever wants to have to send a sympathy card, but when you do, it might as well be made with love.

Unfortunately I have had to make a sympathy, but my hope is that it brings some comfort to the recipient.

My card starts off with Night of Navy cardstock.  I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and used the Petal Palette stamp set to stamp a leaf background on it.  I used Pool Party ink, stamping off first for a lighter shade.

I cut out a Pool Party circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits and layered it with a Vellum leaf cut out from the Petals & More Thinlits.

I cut out a Night of Navy lattice from the Petals & More Thinlits and then stamped the sentiment from the Better Together stamp set in Night of Navy and cut it out using one of the framelits from the Petals & More Thinlits.  I adhered the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the inside, I stamped the same leaf as the card front (stamping off first) in Pool Party ink and then stamped the sentiment from the Better Together Stamp Set in Night of Navy ink over it.

Enjoy!

My card was inspired by this week’s Sunday Stamps Challenge.

Delicate Details – Sympathy

My card today was inspired by the challenge at Freshly Made Sketches this week.

My card starts off with Emerald Envy cardstock as its base.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and used the Delicate Details stamp set to stamp the lace at the top of the card in Emerald Envy, Bermuda Bay, and Mint Macaron.

Before adhering the Whisper White to the card, I tied an Emerald Envy Ruched Ribbon around it in a bow.  I stamped the sentiment from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set in Bermuda Bay on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I cut out a scalloped oval to put behind it in Bermuda Bay using the Layering Ovals Framelits and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut out two leaves in Emerald Envy and Mint Macaron cardstock using the Flourish Thinlits Dies and tucked it under the bow.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Sympathy Card

Today’s card is inspired by the challenges over at Sunday Stamps and the Color Throwdown.

ssc138swatch415My card uses Chocolate Chip as my base and I layered it with Sahara Sand.  To the right of the card, I used a pattern from the Petals & Paisleys.  I placed a piece of Whisper White to the left on the card and covered the seam with Mint Macaron ribbon.

sympathy-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I used the Number of Years stamp set to create two bundles of flowers on the top and bottom of the Whisper White.  I stamped the stems in Chocolate Chip and the other flowers in Mint Macaron, Cherry Cobbler, and Sahara Sand.

The sentiment is from the Better Together stamp set (need some good sentiments – this is the stamp set for you) and was stamped in Cherry Cobbler over the same cardstock.

Enjoy!

CAS(E) Sympathy Card

Happy Wednesday!  Today’s card inspiration comes from the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge.

CTS_182

Rich Razzleberry and Pink Pirouette are my primary colors this card and I went clean and simple with the details.

Flourish Thinlits - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

To add some detail on the base of the card, I used the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set and stamped some smudges in Rich Razzleberry.  I cut out two thinlits from the Flourish Thinlits.  The Rich Razzleberry lattice I tucked under the sentiment which is from the Flourishing Phrases.

Flourish Thinlits - Stampin Up - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

The flower thinlit I cut in Pink Pirouette and then trimmed it down a bit.  I adhered it just under the sentiment and finished the card off with a few rhinestones.

Enjoy!
