Love of Leaves Sympathy Card

Sometimes necessity spurs cretaivity; other times inspiration is needed. I have a dear friend who passed from a rare genetic disease recently and want to send a card to her husband, hopefully to encourage him as he moves forward. As you know, I lost my husband to cancer in June so this wasn’t the easiest card for me to create. I turned to a post by Kelly Acheson, A Stamp Above, for inspiration. I’ve CASEd a Mystery Stamping Card.

I used the Stamp Set, Love of Leaves and one of the dies from Stitched Leaves Dies. Please click the link below to see the supplies used to create this card. 

I am really enjoying using the new In Colors. This card features Just Jade, Bumblebee, and Cinnamon Cider. In the USA the card base is an A2, 1/2 of an 8.5” X 11” cardstock, scored in half and folded. I normally score at 4.25” then cut at 5.5”, thus creating two card bases.

Whisper White Cardstock is cut at 4” X 5.25” and leaves from Love of Leaves are stamped in second generation (or stamped off once as I wanted a lighter inking) using Just Jade, Bumblebee, and Cinnamon Cider. A piece of velum is over the top. 

For a list of supplies needed, please click this link:
Love of Leaves Sympathy Card: A sympathy card in Just Jade, Bumblebee and Cinnamon Cider.

I hope you try this card. If you do, please send me a picture of your card and I will enter you in a drawing, deadline is September 10. 

Do you need supplies or a catalog, live in the USA, and don't have a Stampin' Up Demonstrator please let me know.  I'd love to help you.

Good morning friends!

Thank you for being patient with my absence from this blog. It has been a sad time in my life, my husband passed away in late June and I’ve been taking some much needed time to deal with everything.

While I had some down time, Stampin’ Up has been moving forward. I think you will love the new, online store. This is built on a different platform. What will this mean for you?  Your name and password will work for your accuont but your browser will recognize this as a totally new site so you will need to either remember your password or click on “forgot password” and create a new one. 

Links in this blog will take you to my store, but not the products. Please double check that you are truly shopping with me, just to make sure it’s working as it should. I will work to create new links going forward that take you directly to the new store. 

Please let me know what you think of the new store!

Nancy :-)
