When I woke up this morning, I was “not” thinking, I want to make a sympathy card, however, after receiving a call at 8:30am to tell me my dear friend Lolly had passed away, that’s exactly what I set out to do.
This card was sent today to Johnny S., and I wanted it to convey a simple yet always heart wrenching sentiment for me to use, “with sympathy”, from the Rose Wonder Stamp Set. I hope the card, and my thoughts inside convey just how much Lolly was loved, and has left a footprint in my heart forever. You see, 5 of us were headed to hospice to say our final goodbyes to Lolly today, but we never got the chance. Although I know she is walking the streets of gold as we speak, I still would have liked to tell her one last time how much she is loved, and what her friendship meant to me. This is why I “always” sign off on my blog with, “Hugs the ones you love, none of are promised tomorrow!”
I love to coordinate my cards, and that is exactly what I did here using the Petal Passion Embellishments, Rhinestones, and the Stampin’ Blend Alcohol Markers. I colored in the center of the flower, and my Rhinestones with the Dark Pink Pirouette Stampin’ Blend Marker. If you are all about coordinating your artwork, then Stampin’ Up is the right product to use.
I used my Stampin’ Blend Markers to color in the flowers, bird, leaves, and embellishments. Here I used the Light and Dark Pink Pirouette, Light and Dark Old Olive, and the Light and Dark Daffodil Delight Blends. I stamped the images with our Petal Palette Stamp Set and I used Memento Black Ink. This is a simple, single layer card, with the stamped images popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
When you purchase the Petal Passion Bundle, you will receive 10% off your order. The coordinating dies makes this card come together super quickly. Our Stampin’ Blends makes it look like you took hours to create the artwork. If you haven’t tried our Stampin’ Blend Alcohol Markers, I would highly recommend you purchase a couple of colors. I don’t think you will be disappointed.
Did you notice the new punch shape on my card? It’s from the Occasions Catalog, and it’s the Tailored Tag punch. It’s a unique shape, and I really like it. It also coordinates very well with the new Truly Tailored Stamp Set, and if you purchase it as a bundle, you will receive 10% off!
Thank you for stopping by today, and hope you enjoyed your visit and are leaving inspired to go create something! For your shopping convenience, I have included the products I used on my artwork.
