Stampin’ Up! Vine Design Sympathy Card

Last week for my live card making Wednesday night I shared a sympathy card using the Vine Design Bundle.

Sympathy cards can be challenging because you want to be sensitive and not over the top with your card. So I chose to a thoughtful sentiment and different textures with my card.

The idea to have the dies peeking out came from Kylie Bertucci.

The Vine Design Bundle has some really great sentiments that cover a variety of occasions and I think it’s perfect for a sympathy card, with the addition of that cute butterfly.

I’ll be back tonight with live card making at 7:30 pm EST over on my Facebook page. I sure hope you’ll join me live. I love sharing tips and tricks in my videos, and you’ll have a chance to win the card!

If you ever miss a video, you can check them all out over on my YouTube Channel.

Thanks for checking out my project today!

Stampin’ Up! Heal Your Heart Sympathy Card

All this week I’ve been sharing cards made using FREE product from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.

If you missed them, you can see Monday’s, Tuesday’s, Wednesday’s, and Thursday’s.

Today I used the Heal Your Heart Stamp Set to create a sympathy card.

My card starts off with Night of Navy cardstock which I embossed using the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.

I then cut out a circle from Seaside Spray cardstock using the Stitched Shapes Dies and embossed it using the Painted Texture Embossing Folder.

Then I used the Prized Peony Bundle to stamp the flower in Crushed Curry and leaves in Night of Navy ink, cutting them out with the coordinating Peony Dies.

**If you are signed up to receive my weekly Tips & Updates email, you’ll see I shared a tip to color the flower and leaves. It’s a great way to get a soft color with minimal work.

If you have yet to sign up to receive this weekly email, head over here so you don’t miss out on any of the tips and updates!! You’ll also receive free tutorials for five quick and easy cards!!**

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Heal Your Heart Stamp Set in Night of Navy ink and added a few Pearls around the images.

Thanks for checking out my project today!

Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Watercolor Card

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

My card starts off with Coastal Cabana cardstock.

I took a panel of Watercolor Paper and generously applied water using an Aqua Painter.  I added one layer of Coastal Cabana ink to it using the Aqua Painter, dried it with the Heat Tool, wet the paper again, and added more color.

By adding color, drying it, and adding more color, you get a nice layered look of color.

I then offset a panel of Soft Suede cardstock underneath it.

I then stamped the dock and birds in Soft Suede ink and boat in Early Espresso ink on Watercolor Paper.  I used my Aqua Painter, not too wet, to pull color out from the stamped image.  I cut these out using the coordinating Dockside Dies.

I also added a little Daffodil Delight ink to the bellies of the birds.

I then stamped the sentiment from the By The Dock Stamp Set in Early Espresso ink on a Crumb Cake banner.  I adhered all the images down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Lasting Lily Sympathy Card

Sympathy cards are by no means cards I enjoy sending.

And yet, many times they have a way of conveying what I wish to say when words fail.

The Sale-A-Bration Lasting Lily is perfect for such a card.

My card starts off with Grapefruit Grove cardstock which I embossed using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.  I adhered a pattern from the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper to the right of the card.

Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the lilies from the Lasting Lily on it, one in Grapefruit Grove ink and the other in Daffodil Delight ink.  The stems and leaves I stamped in Lemon Lime Twist.

I matted this on another panel of Whisper White cardstock with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Next I stamped the sentiment in Grapefruit Grove ink and tucked underneath it a Colored Doily, adhering everything down with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Lastly I added some Pearls around the card.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Global Design Project challenge.

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.
