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.

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!

To make the flowers in the vase, I stamped the image on some regular paper and then cut out the images to create a mask. Then I stamped the foreground flowers first on watercolour paper with Jet Black – Stazon Ink. Next I put the mask over them and then stamped the background flowers.

Coloured in the flowers with Tim Holtz Distress Ranger Ink and watercolour brush.

Purple flowers: Dusty Concord, Shaded Lilac and Wilted Violet

Pink Flowers: Worn Lipstick, Festive Berries and Candied Apple

Leaves: Mowed Lawn

Water in Vase: Salty Ocean

Stems: Zig Marker – Clover

Flower Centers: Stampin Up – More Mustard

Die cut the frame with My Creative Time – Stitched Squares Inside and Out. Outlined cut with Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint.

Sentiment – My Creative Time – Inspire Die Cut and My Thoughts Are With You Stamp.

Background paper – Recollection Signature – Kaitlin.
