The Other Sympathy Card

Now that we’ve done a second sympathy card, I think that I’m out of my creative freeze.

Does that ever happen to you?

Ann’s been pretty sad since our friend passed away, but getting this second card done, I think that she’s ready to be work her creative muscle again.

Sympathy Card Idea

There is just something about this free hostess set in the back of the 2019 Occasions Catalog that makes Ann want to get out her Stampin’ Blends and start to watercolor.

Stampin’ Blends really make it easy to look like a pro. And if you’re just starting out, getting Old Olive Duo and one or two colors that you like for flowers. They’ll still work with things other than flowers. Here are two colors that we used for this card:

Old Olive Stampin' Blends Markers Combo Pack - 144597
Price: $9.00
Cajun Craze Combo Pack Stampin' Blends - 147931
Price: $9.00

We were a little rough on the shadows. I forgot to remind Ann to do that first. That’s what she teaches, at least. but she forgot that this time and came in afterwards with her Dark Gray Watercolor Pencil and a Blender Pen.

I think that the Country Floral Embossing Folder that we got for free with a $50 order steps it up a bit, don’t you? I hope they don’t run out before you get yours!

Do you have yours yet? It’s been really popular!

Did you remember to throw your clock ahead? I forgot to remind you yesterday, but I did remind my Facebook friends.

I think we’ll spend the day making Master Stamper videos. That will keep everyone’s creative juices flowing! I’ve got a couple ideas for her to get started on right after church.

Have you tried Master Stamper yet? It’s a special private area for our VIP stampers. Our clients who shop with us before the 15th will have a very special special coming their way to celebrate Ann milestone birthday last month, her 20th Stampaversary with Stampin’ Up! AND my blog-o-versary

There’s no end to celebrating around here this time of year, but your opportunity to get 3 months of Master Stamper for the price of one will disappear on March 15th. Just shop in our online store and use the current code (if you’re spending under $150) and we’ll send you the offer.

I hope we don’t have to make another sympathy card again soon.

We read & appreciate your comments! They make great bedtime stories for Ann to read to me!

  1. I’m so sorry for your loss. The card is very pretty. I always appreciate the simple and elegant sympathy cards. The embossing folder adds just the right amount of design to the background.
