Bunch of Love Sympathy Cards for Joyful Stars Blog Hop

Welcome back to the April Joyful Stars Blog Hop!  We are a group of Close to My Heart consultants who share something each month on the 9th and at 9PM EST.  If you are coming from Joyce's blog you are on the right track. (The complete lineup is also on Joyce's blog in case you get lost.)  Have fun being inspired!


Recently I needed to make more sympathy cards so I took out the new "A Bunch of Love" stamp set and coordinating Thin Cuts from the Seasonal Expressions 2 catalog.  I curved the word "Condolences" from the Sincere Expressions stamp set on an acrylic block so it would nearly fit into the banner.

Card #1:

     White Daisy CS
     Whisper CS
     Gypsy CS
     A Bunch of Love stamp and Thin Cut
     Sincere Expressions stamp
     Slate Ink
     Prismacolor pencils (retired)
     3D Foam Tape
     Artfully Sent cartridge for overlay background

Card #2:


     White Daisy CS
     Whisper CS
     Eggplant CS
     Fern Ink
     Slate Ink
     A Bunch of Love stamp and Thin Cut
     Sincere Expressions stamp
     Chalks (retired)
     3D Foam Tape
     Artbooking cartridge for overlay background

Card #3:  

     Whisper CS
     White Daisy CS
     Peacock CS
     Happy Times stamps
     Peacock Ink
     Goldrush Ink
     Sincere Expressions stamp
     Art Philosophy cartridge for scalloped oval frame
     Artistry cartridge for banner

Which one do you like best?

Now, hop on over and see what Debi B. has to share.  I'm sure you'll be inspired!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!

  2. What beautiful sympathy cards! Hmmm, it's hard to choose...I guess I'd say the 3rd card is the one I like best? I need to find that banner shape on Artistry...thanks for sharing :)
