Archive for the ‘Sympathy’ Category

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC703), we heading over to Ballard Designs & I was inspired by THIS picture. I like the blue & white floral on the oval back chair.

My sympathy card is pretty simple…I die cut the long stem flower out of white & blue then placed the white outline on top of the blue version. The bottom section is an inked embossing folder border I thought mimicked the flower. I had to do a little out of the box on the greeting using a partial die cut shape. Some liquid pearls dots were added here & there after I added the blue, white & marbled blue layers.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS632) this week! A big congrats to Liz, the newest Featured Stamper! She has such a fun gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept most of the layout w/ the wide white frame, but I used different images & colors & made mine a sympathy card.

For my CAS sympathy card, I found a piece of paper I hand marbled ages ago. It was in oranges & pinks w/ a dk blue vein running thru it & I copied it onto a piece of neon pink paper. I stamped the birds on the branch directly onto this using very dark navy ink. I used a white gel pen to add highlights then added a white frame & a navy diamond cut frame. 

Here’s the inside.

I combined 2 Splitcoast Challenges, the Clean & Simple (CAS486) & Technique Challenge (TLC695). The TLC was to cover card stock w/ washi tape, then emboss it. The CAS was to make a celebration card.

It may not look like a celebration card, but it is…while I was making this, my aunt called to tell me my uncle had passed away. My aunt & uncle are twins so I’m sending this to her. So I guess my card is more a celebration of his life than a sympathy card. He hadn’t been sick, in fact he played a LOT of golf & did a LOT of bowling, but life is like that, I guess.

Anyway, I didn’t have as much washi tape as I thought but I found a couple w/ black patterns, some pink & pale green & some black glitter so that’s what I used. It was embossed w/ Swiss dots then framed w/ a pale mint green & the greeting added.

Here’s the inside. My aunt will get the quote…we can cry that he’s gone or rejoice that he lived.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
