Sympathy Cards - Scallops and Florals

Good morning! I recently had a request for some sympathy cards, so I went rummaging through my stamps to see if I could find some stamps that I hadn't used in a while and find a way to quickly assemble a large number of them. I ended up pulling out a couple of Mama Elephant sets that worked perfectly for these:



I used a combination of different inks and cardstocks from a few different manufacturers (didn't keep a good list - sorry about that!) - but it was fun to put the combinations together. Added some jute twine as well, and by using my MISTI these were fairly easy to assemble in an evening.

Here is a closer look at each of the colors combinations:









Sympathy cards are always some of the hardest to make - so I love when I can find a design that makes it easy to put several together at once.

Little Tangles Challenge - Hope Anchors the Soul

Good morning! It's the start of a new challenge at Little Tangles! Here is my card:


The challenge this month is Silver and Gold (Anyone else singing the song from the old Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer? HERE is a link in case you want to sing along with it!)


I pulled out an oldie but a goodie for this card - Hope Anchors - and stamped it in Embossing ink, then sprinkled it in alternating layers of silver and gold embossin gpowder - I love the subtle ombre effect!


I added some Christmas pattern paper and some silver washi tape from my stash to finish off this simple and masculine card!

Grande Birthday Wishes - Reverse Confetti SFYTT

Good morning! Stopping by with a card this morning for the brand new Reverse Confetti SFYTT (stands for Sketch For You To Try) - I hope you'll come play along with us!


The current sketch can be found HERE:


I had fun playing with the cute elephant from Coffee and You - die cut with the coordinating Confetti Cuts - and colored softly with Copic markers.


I layered him on a sentiment from that same set, curved to fit the banner from Greetings Frame and heat embossed, as well as a scallop cut with Lacy Scallop Circles. Pattern paper is from the newly released Warm Hearts 6x6 paper pad, and finishing touch was a frame cut from Stone cardstock using All Framed Up.


Here are the Reverse Confetti products I used on this card - click on the picture if you want to learn more about any of these items!
