Hi Stamping Friends!
Tonight is my Wow Techniques class, aka Stamp Club Night! One of my long-time club members, Peggy Tassler always brings a basket of her latest cards to show and I can't wait to see what she has for us this week!
Today, I thought I'd share a few of Peggy's sympathy cards that she shared with us last month. I know from experience that it's not much fun to make sympathy cards at the last minute, so I like to have some on-hand and ready-to-send when I need them. Here are a few ideas to help you do the same...
Peggy used the new, miniature-sized variation of the popular retired Upsy Daisy image that is currently available in the Best of Flowers stamp set. Silhouettes are great for sympathy cards—so serene! I love the White, Crumb Cake and Black color combination. Also features: Scallop Trim Border Punch, Oval Scallop Punch, Labels Collection Framelits and Perfect Polka Dots Folder.
So soft and pretty! That focal point is awesome! She stamped the Thoughts & Prayers sentiment inside an Designer Frame embossed frame and hand-cut it out. The flowers are made with layers punched from the Boho Blossoms Punch, scrunched and adhere to leaves from the Bird Punch and topped with Pearl Jewels. You can substitute the Lacy Brocade Folder for the background and Large Scallop Edgelit for the border cut. The Pearl Jewels come with lines of pearls that would work perfectly here, too!
Monochromatic designs are also great for sympathy cards—Peggy used Very Vanilla. I love the Ovals Collection Framelit cut-away for the Thoughts & Prayers words, surrounded by the Perfect Polka Dots embossed texture. The Beautiful Wings Embosslit butterflies are a nice touch.
I saved my favorite for last! I love Peggy's use of the Fabulous Florets flowers here! She stamped the images in black onto Crumb Cake Designer Series Paper from the Neutrals DSP Stack, then cut them out and layered them. The sentiment is from the Thoughts & Prayers set. I love this card and I may have to CASE it for an upcoming class!
Did you notice that she used Thoughts & Prayers for 3 of these cards. That set is so versatile—and we've only seen the words today! There are two lovely images in that set that are just right for sympathy cards, too.
