A Sketch With Sympathy

Unfortunately today I need to send out a Sympathy Card, one of my daughter's friends lost his Grandfather yesterday.

I used today's sketch from Splitcoast, using the blossoms from the set "Easter Blossoms" ... I am NOT ready for this set to disappear and have my fingers and toes crossed for it to make it to the Big Idea Book & Catalog being released in July. I just feel like I haven't used it enough! Here's a close up of some of the details. I stamped with StazOn ink and then used a blender pen and Blushing Bride marker to get some dimension on the flower, then the circles are just made with SU punches and a little pearl accent in the centre. I really love how this turned out, just sorry that it's being sent at a time of sadness.

Stamps : Easter Blossoms, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Cardstock : Shimmery White, Basic Black, Blushing Bride
Ink : blushing Bride, Basic Black
Accessories : Modern Label, Word Window, Itty Bitty Shapes, 3/4" Circle & 1/2" Circle Punches, White gel pen, 1/2 Pearls, Basic Black 1/8" Ribbon, Blender Pen

I am so sorry for your loss! This is a very elegant card! I, too love this stamp set and hope it makes it into the new Idea Cataloge! Easter Blossoms has become one of my favorites! If you visit my blog you will see many cards made with stamp set. Thank you so much for sharing!


Hope to see you there,

I agree with you - I hope Easter Blossoms is in the new IB&C too! I didn't get to use it enough. Shoot, I haven't even gotten to play with my new Summer Mini stamps, and I've had them for a while now. That's what I call an irresponsible crafter! Very pretty card. ;)
