Archive for the ‘Sympathy’ Category

Congrats to Teresa, the newest Featured Stamper (FS691)! She has lovely gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the framed floral w/ greeting underneath, but I used different images, changed the oval layers to rectangular, & made mine a sympathy card.

For my sympathy card, I’m using these lovely calla lilies & a stained glass oval on top.  The lily & frame are all one image, but I didn’t want the stained glass on top of the word frame, so I did them separately. I could have just left off the word framing, but I like how the big sympathy greeting echos the word frame. I die cut the white frame & inside rectangle first, then stamped the 2 parts of the lily & added a green frame. After coloring the lily, I stamped the stained glass on top w/ the gray ink & added just a hint of color here & there. I also added just a bit of color to the large greeting.

Here are the Copics I used:

A big congrats to Betty, the newest Featured Stamper (FS686) on Splitcoast! She has a lovely gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS card to case. I kept most of the layout & flower theme, but used different images, dies & colors, & moved the greeting a bit.

After coloring the pretty flowers, I decided against fussy cutting them entirely & instead used my out of the box die cutting technique. A black pinstripe paper was added down the left side & I tucked in a few die cut green branches. On the greeting, I stamped it on a narrow piece then used just one scallop of  the largest pierced scallop circle die to cut the ends. A couple of black mini brads were put on the ends.

Here are the Copics I used:

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.
