Sympathy Card with Dear Doily

Today I’m sharing a sympathy card which is one of those projects I’m not keen on making as it usually means someone I love is hurting.  This card was very much inspired by the samples in the Spring/Summer catalogue on page 47, as you can see I’ve used elements from all three cards to create my own version.

I’ve stuck to using just Balmy Blue with just a hint of Pear Pizzazz, by using the cardstock, ink and Stampin’ Marker you can have three variations of the same colour which match perfectly creating a gorgeous card.

To attach the doily frame I used the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets which I think are a must when using delicate die-cuts like this frame. I added a little bow of Linen Thread just to add a little rustic touch.

I’m gutted this set isn’t carrying over into the new catalogue as its one of my favourites from the Spring/Summer catlogue, the possibilities with it are endless. If you’re in Europe I suggest you grab it while you can.

“Praying for You” Card with Beautiful Promenade

The Petal Promenade suite in the catalogue really appeals to me because of the beautiful floral stamps and dies and a paper pack which is just stunning in real life. I have struggled to use this set though as I found the sentiments hard to work with. For today’s card I’ve been inspired by the examples in the catalogue on page 106, I often look to the catalogue for inspiration when I’m struggling with a set as its a good starting point.

I’ve got less layers on my card but have added that beautiful large flower to the front of the card in Petal Pink but I wish I done it in Flirty Flamingo so it stood out a bit more.

If you haven’t got a copy of the catalogue and would like one then please get in touch at dibbystamps@gmail.com I can send them to the UK, france, Germany, Austria and The Netherlands.
