Sadly, sympathy/thinking of you cards are the one type of card that I have needed too many of recently. These are the types of cards that I prefer to make several of ahead of time, so they are ready to go when needed. I’ve gone through my whole stash and even sold out at the craft fair I did on Sunday as well.

This card is one that I made the other night so I could send it out to a very special family who lost a loved one in a tragic motorcycle accident. It is so hard to know what to say or do when someone leaves us so suddenly. I hope my card and gift basket will bring them some comfort and that they will know how much I care.



This card features two awesome stamp sets-Timeless Textures (clear mount item #140517 or wood mount item # 140514) and Wild about Flowers (photopolymer stamp set item# 138728) (so glad these  are both carrying over!)  I went with Mint Macaron and Crumb Cake for my colors and a pop of gold foil for the butterfly to make it extra special. What do you think?


In this blog hop, in addition to the card we also show you a 3D item. I didn’t really have a three dimensional project to coordinate with this theme, so I thought I’d show you the awesome gift card holder in the March Paper Pumpkin kit. I used this project at a recent stamping event with some ladies at a local church. They just loved this quick and simple project. Don’t you just adore Paper Pumpkin? The kit is always there for a quick project, and can easily be altered or modified if needed.

Also- don’t forget that my team and I are having our next BOGO (Buy One Get One Free) Sale on Wednesday June 8th from 6-9 pm at the Burnt Hills United Methodist Church (816 Route 50 in Burnt Hills). We will have 7 demonstrators there selling their retired Stampin’ Up! stamps, ink, paper, punches, tools, ribbon, embellishments, dies and much more! The way our BOGO works is this- you go shop around the room, pick out all the things you want, you go to the check-out table and we total up your retired purchases. Then we give you your total to go sit at a New Catalog table and you get to pick out the equivalent in NEW catalog products!! WIN-WIN! (we just add tax/shipping on the new). This is our 5th time offering this sale, and it goes really well! We prefer cash for payment as it really helps us divide up the orders at the end of the night. We have a free gift for paying in cash- Hope you can make it!! 🙂

  1. Really nice use of Timeless Textures. Unfortunately, I have been needing to make several Sympathy cards lately but I think yours is lovely.
