Advant Garden meets Rose Wonder

Sympathy Card using Avant Garden and Rose Garden from Stampin' Up! UK

Sometimes we have to make cards we don’t like, sometimes we have to make sad cards, cards that are hard to make not because its a technique we struggle with but because its for a sad occasion… this was me last week. Last week I lost my grandfather after a year long battle with Cancer, I don’t write sad blog posts, I write happy smiley blog posts about happy crafting… but this card might be the hardest card I have ever had to make.

I made two of these, one for my dad and the other for my Aunt. They are super simple, but what is more heartfelt than a hand stamped card.

The flower is from Avant Garden (FREE during Sale-a-bration, all you need to do to claim your copy is spend £45 in my Online Store before 31st March) while the sentiments are taken from Rose Wonder…. a set which I had totally not realised has several sentiments perfect for sad occasions, I had only managed to see the wedding side of this stamp set before.

I have to say though, the only thing harder than making these cards was writing in them…

For some things there are just no words…..

Gifts of Love | Sympathy Card

Sympathy card watercoloured gifts of love card using Stampin' Up! UK products

A few weeks ago I shared my Quick and Easy Sympathy card that I like to keep on hand, but sometimes you need an extra special card to sent to someone in their worst moments.

The Gifts of love stamp set is just so pretty, and its lovely watercoloured. The sentiment is from the Rose Wonder stamp set, and is stamped in Garden Green and heat embossed in clear. This is one of my favourite ways to use Vellum, because Stampin’ Up! ink drys more slowly on Vellum that it does on card stock you can add clear embossing powder to create coloured heat embossing.

Gifts of Love is one of the current hostess stamp sets; these sets are exclusively available for purchase with your Stampin’ Rewards. Stampin’ Rewards are awarded to party hostesses or individuals posting orders of over £150, and must be redeemed in the order in which they are earned. You can find all the current hostess sets HERE.

The background Designer Series Paper is from the Fancy Frost Speciality Designer Series Paper pack. This paper comes as white sheets, each one with a different texture, I watercoloured it here in Pool Party to match the card base and watercolour around the flowers.

Question of the day: What type of cards do you make most? Me, I make more Thank you cards than any other kinda, although I’m sure that balance has tipped over to Christmas cards at the moment!

There are some cards that we should always have on hand; birthday cards, congratulations, Thank you… for me a With Sympathy card falls into that ‘must have’ category. However I found a couple of weeks ago that I didn’t have one when I really needed one (so of course I whipped one up) and so I thought I would share a Quick and Easy sympathy card for you to either make in a hurry, or make and keep on hand for those sad occasions.

I’m loving that colour combination too, although the Wisteria Wonder hasn’t translated awfully well in the photograph

What do you do when you need a card in a hurry?
