Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes Sympathy Card

Today I have a sympathy card for you.

No one ever wants to have to mail a sympathy card.
But when needed, a handmade card is the perfect token to show someone you care.

Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes Sympathy Card

Today’s card starts off with a piece of Merry Merlot cardstock measuring 4-1/4 x 8-1/2, scored at 4-1/4. I layered this with a Merry Merlot pattern from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper.

Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes Sympathy Card

I next took a panel of Basic White cardstock and stamped the square from the Watercolor Shapes in Sahara Sand ink, stamping off first.

Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes Sympathy Card

Over the square, I stamped the dandelion from the Garden Wishes Stamp Set in Memento Black ink.

Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish Birthday Card

You can find inspiration anywhere for paper crafting.

One of my favorite places to turn to for inspiration is Pinterest. It’s jam packed with all things inspiration and not just cards.
You can find nature images and paintings and the such and you can also find a ton of color inspiration.

I’ve actually created a board just for color inspiration and that’s how today’s card came about. Check it out. You’ll even find the inspiration for today’s card that I pinned a couple of days ago!

Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish Birthday Card

My card starts off Gray Granite cardstock which I covered with a Gray Granite pattern from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper.

Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish Birthday Card

I next took a panel of Basic White cardstock and using the Stamparatus (which is key to getting the perfect alignment of stamped birthdays) I stamped the birthday from the Biggest Wish Stamp Set in So Saffron, Gray Granite, Pear Pizzazz, and Shaded Spruce ink.

I then matted this on a panel of Basic White and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish Birthday Card

Next I stamped the “happy” in Shaded Spruce ink and fussy cut it out, adhering it down with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish Birthday Card

I next stamped the balloons from the Hippo Happiness Stamp Set in So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz, and Shaded Spruce ink and cut it out with the Hippo & Friends Dies. I stamped the strings in Gray Granite ink and fussy cut them out.

Thanks for checking out my card today.

Isn’t this a beautiful combination of colors. You probably think masculine card when you see it (as I’ve used it today). But I’ve created the same layout, same colors, just a pretty, girly card with flowers and bling.

I’m sharing it this week in my Tips & Updates email. If you don’t already receive it, you can head over here. You’ll get to see the feminine version of today’s card tomorrow!! Don’t miss out!


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

Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers Thanks Card

I just love the images from the Jar of Flowers Stamp Set and how they can be used independent of the Jar Punch.

I decided to use it for today’s sketch challenge with the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop challenge.

May be an image of text that says 'Happy Inkin Thursday Blog Hop June 24- 24- Sketch Challenge'

My card starts off with Pale Papaya cardstock. I used the Stitched Greenery Dies and cut out a beautiful piece of Pale Papaya cardstock to go over the card front.

Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers Thanks Card

On a piece of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the floral image from the Jar of Flowers Stamp Set in Memento Black ink twice. I colored it in using the Pale Papaya, Crumb Cake, Soft Sea Foam, and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers Thanks Card

I fussy cut them out and adhered them over another panel of Basic White cardstock. I wrapped around a bow in Linen Thread and adhered it over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers Thanks Card

I stamped the sentiment from the Plentiful Plants Stamp Set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it. I adhered this over the center of the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
