It’s more than a holiday

Hello my stampin’ friends! What a treat we have for you today. My peeps over at EarningAlaska2018 are doing a blog hop. The theme for this month is Anything but a Holiday. We are taking stamp sets from the 2016 Holiday Catalog and using them for non-holiday projects.

Sympathy card showcasing a greeting from the Suite Sayings stamp set. Find more inspiration at

I am showcasing the Suite Sayings stamp set. I have a friend at church whose father just passed away and I thought this would make a good sympathy card greeting. The recipient is also a man so I felt the Woodland Folder would be a good choice, and this color combo is masculine as well.

Now it’s time to hop on over to Sherri’s blog and see what she has in store for us. I would love to hear from you in the comments and be sure to subscribe to the blog so that you never miss another piece of inspiration!

The card you never want to make

We have all been there – we need a sympathy card and we don’t have any on hand. For me, it’s the card I never want to make. It is always so hard to create something comforting during a stressful time and so I always try to keep a couple of them in my stash. Today at SSInk, we are sharing our creations.

SSInk Sympathy

This is a pretty bright and colorful card for a sad occasion but I feel that a ray of hope in the darkness can be nice for the recipient. The Bliss and Blooms Designer Series Paper is perfect for this because it uses rich colors such as Rich Razzleberry, a soft color such a Blushing Bride and the creamy neutral of Crumb Cake. The mega mosaic technique made quick a unique background for this card.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you are having a great week so far. I would love to hear your thoughts on my card and be sure to subscribe to my posts while you are here!
