Trio of Sympathy Cards

Today I have for you three sympathy cards.  I know these are everyone's least favorites to make, but I was making these for a card set, so it wasn't so bad.  I didn't have to think so hard about it, know what I mean?




You can't go wrong with a peaceful color combo and elegant stamps.

PTI SAF Limited Supplies Challenge

Today is PTI's Stamp-a-faire, and I played along with the Limited Supplies Challenge.  Here is what we could use:

  • STAMPS: Natural Beauties only (or another floral set as a substitute if needed)
  • PAPER: Stamper's Select White, Hawaiian Shores, Aqua Mist, Simply Chartreuse
  • RIBBON: Hawaiian Shores Bitty Dot
  • BUTTONS: Simply Chartreuse

  • And this is what I came up with:

    Orange Wedding


    Here is the wedding card I promised that uses the same idea as the card here.  My youngest sister got married a couple weeks ago, and her colors were black and white with a splash of orange.  I've never used orange on a wedding card before!  So I made a second one, for my mom to give.

    I used the rock-and-roll technique for the flowers, and used gray to soften the black a bit.

    MFTWSC #81

    It's time for a little MFTWSC catch-up! 

    This first one is actually for this week's sketch, #81:

    And this was last week's, #80.

    I am actually up-to-date on my weekly sketches, except for one.  I have just been too lazy to take pictures and upload.  I'll work on that :)
    Thanks for stopping by!

    July SFYTT #2


    I'm back again with some more inspiration using this month's SFYTT:

    Our sponsor is the fabulous My Favorite Things
    I used Super Boy to make my 6 year-old his birthday card:


    We are all about super heroes, star wars, spies, and ninjas over here, so this is my homage to Batman.  And this is the first time in about 10 years I have used YoYo Yellow.

    Thanks for stopping by, head over to Jen's blog to see more inspiration and get all the details!

    July SFYTT


    Hi there, friends, it's time for the July SFYTT!  This year is starting to fly by!
    Let's get right to it, here is the sketch:

    Our sponsor this month is a favorite of mine, My Favorite Things!  In my opinion, they offer very unique stuffs, and their dies are out of this world!

    I pulled out a bunch of MFT stuff and made this:
    And now that I'm looking at it, I completely forgot the horizontal panel. Yeesh.
    MFT products I used are Vanity License Plate set and die combo, Star Stax, and star border.
     Hop on over to Jen's blog for all the details and to see more inspiration! Thanks for stopping by!
