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

That is to the Retiring List – it’s now live and there’s A LOT to see!
All items EXCEPT for Stamps are WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!!
NOTE: You will see ALL ink pads retiring.
WHY? Stampin’ Up! has reformatted their ink pads. The new ink pads are easier to open and come with a new formula that prevents bubbling on the stamps!!!
