For the fancy border, I used Spellbinders Lacy Squares – S4295.

Added some Clear – Wink of Stella on the red portion of the candy cane and  Wink of Stella – Glitter White on the white pieces.

Sympathy Card


Hi There,

Back again to share another Sympathy card that I made using stamps and dies from My Creative Time – My Thoughts are With You and My Creative Time -Stitched Rectangular Frames and More.

I can’t take credit for the original design, as I was inspired by a card made by Brigit Mann who created a similar card during the blog hop for this stamp set back in July, 2015.

Sympathy-Card---Teresa

I coloured in all of the flowers and stems with Spectrum Noir markers. To give the water effect to the jar, I used Parchment Paper – Shaded Blue – Code 61582. I then used a stylus on the back of the paper to put in the jar lines like the actual stamp. To get the depth of the jar, I used some fun foam which I cut out with the die cut so that it would be the same shape and give the shaker a nice solid enclosure. Lastly, I added in some sequence to fill the bottom of the jar.

Background paper is from My Mind’s Eye – Summer Papers – Quite Contrary by Jen Allyson and Roe Pearn.

Hope you like it!
