Cards- Sympathy

Stampin Up Hold on to Hope Cross

This is such a beautiful stamp set. I also love all of the gorgeous framelits that come in the Cross of Hope framelit set.

I started making a card for Card Class, and then I just kept going. I really enjoyed making some lovely cards with this beautiful cross.

Here's the one we made at Card Class. The colors are soft sky and marina mist.


I wrapped a piece of White Organza ribbon around the cross and secured it in front with a glue dot and in back with dimensionals.


I also made a few more while I had the stamp set out. I loved making cards with these beautiful crosses!


This card uses soft sky and wisteria wonder inks and cardstocks as well as silver foil paper.

I stamped the cross in wisteria wonder ink, directly on the soft sky cardstock. I also embossed the wisteria wonder cardstock with the new Petal Pairs emboss folder.


I added a few rhinestone jewels to the cross and butterfly for extra sparkle.


This card is made with so saffron and soft sky cardstock as well as the new Sweet Soiree designer series paper.


Notice that I didn't pop the pieces out of the die cut cross this time. I left them in and placed dimensionals behind the cross to keep the pieces in place. I love this look!


I wanted to show the shine on the foil paper and designer paper with this photo. I also added a Glitter dot to the middle of the cross.


I used the Stitched Shape Framlits to cut the circles and ovals on the last two cards.

I have one more Hold on to Hope card to share with you this week, so stay tuned for that!

Until the next time...

Simple, Southern Serenade Sympathy

Today I'm sharing a Southern Serenade sympathy card. I like to keep sympathy cards fairly simple, so this set worked perfectly for that reason.

The two main colors are the pool party and old olive Stampin Blends alcohol markers. I used a touch of bermuda bay light to shade the flowers as well. That's really all the color this simple card needed.


I love that the Southern Serenade stamp set comes with a beautiful lace background stamp. I inked it in pool party for the background and stamped the flower over it in memento black ink.


I added a few pearl jewels to the middle of the flowers for dimension.

The sentiment is from the Rose Wonder stamp set, one of my "go to" sentiment stamp sets.


I hope you like this super simple, duplicatable card.

Thank you for visiting today.

Until the next time....
