Beauty of Tomorrow Sympathy Card - Mystery Stamping Night December 2021 - Video Replay

Hello and welcome to my blog; today ( am going to share the project that I made last night during my weekly YouTube Live.  The first Tuesday of each month I hold a Mystery Stamping Night during my Live.  This is an event that allows the viewers and myself to craft together and create a project.  I give measurements and a general list of supplies that you need before hand that day in my community tab, and on my Facebook Business Page.  That way you can cut and pick your supplies and have them ready to craft along.  Here's a look at the project I made last night.

Sending Healing Thoughts - Nature's Harvest Bundle Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog! Well Crafty Peeps, I have been working on this post for two days now.  I couldn't get a picture to upload to Photoshop Sunday night to edit them to get this post ready for yesterdays deadline.  So, I spent all day yesterday moving files from my laptop to my external hard drive.  Which by the way freed up the much needed space so that my laptop would work properly.    

Send Healing Thoughts with this beautiful Fall sympathy/get well card using the Nature's Harvest Bundle from Stampin' Up!  Read all my tips here!

Now, since I have this thing working correctly I can share my project with you.  So, lets get into today's project.  I used the Harvest Meadow Suite to create a beautiful sympathy or get well card to share with you today.  Which the sentiment I picked from the stamp set I think it could go either way.  But, let me know in the comments if you think it can or not.

Peaceful Moments With Deepest Sympathy Card

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I have a beautiful sympathy card to share with you.  I used the Peaceful Moments Bundle from the January-June Mini Catalog to create my card.  I also used the die cut coloring hack that I shared last week to do this card.  At the end of this post you will find all the sizes and dimensions for my card as well as the supplies that I used.  Sympathy cards are never a fun thing to make but they are something that we have to have.  I was asked last week by a follower to share one, and I just had happened to make this card.  Here's a look at my card.

Whatever the situation, the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set has the words you need to express your thoughts even Sympathy.  Sometimes it's hard to find the perfect sentiment no matter the occasion but the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set has one that's surely perfect for whatever you need.  I used the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper for the background of the card.  I added a sentiment strip at the bottom of the card and one of the Poppy die cuts from the matching dies.
I used ink and a sponge dauber to add additional color to each element of the Poppy Die cuts.  For the base of the poppy I used Very Vanilla cardstock, but for the outline layer I used whisper white cardstock.  I inked the center up with daffodil delight ink, and the edges with Whisper White craft ink.  The leaves where put together with old olive and pear pizzazz cardstocks.

Sizes & Dimensions: 

  • Thick Whisper White - 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
  • Whisper White Cardstock - 3 x 3, 1 1/2 x 4 
  • Pear Pizzazz Cardstock - 3 x 5, 4 1/8 x 5 3/8
  • Old Olive Cardstock - 3 x 5 
  • Very Vanilla Cardstock - 3 x 3 
  • Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper 4 x 5 1/4
I layered the card front onto a piece of Pear Pizzazz mat and then placed everything onto a Whisper White Thick card base.  I added a few of the Poppy Sequins just to add a little sparkle.  Thanks for dropping by, if you need any of the supplies I've used today you can pick them up in my online class.

Rick's Saturday Simple Stamping Episode 17: Lasting Lilly Sympathy Card

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you my card for this weeks Simple Saturday Stamping.  Today, I am going to show you how to create a quick and easy Sympathy card.  I know that this is not the reason we want to make cards but sometimes we have to have them on hand to send out.  And, wouldn't it make a person feel a little better when they get a handmade card from you.  Here's a look at my card.


This is really not a hard card to create like the rest of our simple stamping cards, they are designed to teach card making to someone just getting started, or who has been thinking about getting started in this fun creative craft that will change your life.  Most of these simple stamped cards only use stamps ink and paper.  I try to share with you easy designs that you can totally recreate without a problem.  Check out the how to video tutorial here for today's card.

I think that this is a nice card that would make the person that got it smile on such a bad occasion.  I like the Lasting Lilly stamp set for Sympathy cards.  It has the perfect sentiments for these types of situations.  The Lasting Lilly set can only be earned for FREE during Saleabration.  And, there is only nine more days left of Saleabration.  Lasting Lily is a second level Saleabration item which means to earn it for free you have to spend a $100 in my online store before shipping and taxes.  Which we all know isn't really that hard to do some days.

My card base is a piece of Flirty Flamingo cut at 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2, and a piece of Petal Pink 4 x 5 1/4 .  My stamped layer is 3 3/4 x 5.  You will find a full list below in the shopping list.  For the inside I just added a piece of whisper white and stamped the lily a couple times.
Thanks for dropping by I hope that you have enjoyed this weeks Simple Saturday Card.  You can order all the supplies in my online store 24/7.

Happy Stampin'
Rick
