Kindness & Compassion Condolence Card

Layered Leaves

Condolence cards are the most difficult cards to make but I recently needed one to send to my cousin’s wife.  Matthew passed away several weeks ago and he was only 48 years old. Far too young to leave us. 

I love everything about the Kindness & Compassion stamp set.  It’s always difficult finding the right words to say to someone who’s experiencing extreme grief and convey that you care. This set has a variety of beautiful sentiments written in a beautiful font. Plus it includes “thank you.”

Kindness & Compassion

 

I used a base of Thick Whisper White with another layer of Whisper White, embossed with the Layered Leaves 3D Embossing Folder.  The sentiment was stamped in Night of Navy and cut out using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  The larger Night of Navy oval underneath it was cut out using the Layering Ovals Dies.

Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper

Wrapped in Plaid

Today I have an easy card featuring Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Catalog but first, I have a winner to announce! On Friday I offered Blog Candy (a make n take packet) for the project I shared. Thanks so much to everyone who left a comment! The random name drawn was Lesa! Congratulations, Lesa!!!!  (I will contact Lesa but if I don’t hear back from her within 24 hours, I will draw another name on Tuesday). 

I combined several new products from the Holiday Catalog to create today’s card.  The base of the card is Real Red.  The next layer is also Real Red and I placed it inside the Hammered Metal embossing folder using my die-cutting machine.  Then I added a piece of Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper on the lower half of the Real Red. Before adhering it to the base, I wrapped the elegant Shaded Spruce/Gold 3/8″ Ribbon around the cardstock/Designer Series Paper and tied a bow.  Stampin’ Dimensionals were added to the back before adhering it to the base.

For the sentiment, I used the stamp set Perfectly Plaid and stamped it in Shaded Spruce onto Whisper White cardstock.  It was cut out using the Merry Christmas Dies. All the products I used can be found in the supply list below!

Feels Like Frost & Purple Posy

Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper

Happy Friday!!

Yesterday I shared a card using Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper (you can see it here). This gorgeous paper comes in 6″ x 6″ sheets and after making yesterday’s card, I had a strip of paper left over and used it to make today’s card! 

 

Feels Like Frost

I used Purple Posy cardstock for the base of my card.  The next layer is Whisper White that was embossed with the Subtle embossing folder.  This step is optional but I personally like the added texture. The sentiment is from the stamp set, Very Versailles.  It was inked up with Gorgeous Grape and then cut out with the Stitched Shapes Dies. The Purple Posy layer below it was made using the Layering Ovals Dies.  All the supplies I used are listed below in the Supply List and below that, you’ll find the measurements.

Come to Gather Thank You

Very Versailles Stamp Set

Happy Friday!

Today’s card features Come to Gather Designer Series Paper and the Mosaic 3D Embossing Folder.  

Mosaic 3D Embossing Folder

Come to Gather Designer Series Paper

 

The base of the card is Merry Merlot cardstock and I added another layer of Merry Merlot, embossed with our Mosaic 3D Embossing Folder.  

To achieve the very best results when using our new style of 3D Embossing Folders, I used our 3D Embossing Folder Plate . This plate replaces the standard cutting plates when using the 3D folders but you’ll use the regular cutting plates for all other embossing folders. This is the sandwich you’ll use when using a 3D folder and the 3D Embossing Folder Plate: 

  • Embossing Machine Platform
  • Embossing Folder with cardstock inside
  • 3D Embossing Folder Plate

You won’t find this plate in a current catalog but you can find it in my online store here or by clicking the image of the plate below. If you have any questions, please reach out to me!

Mosaic Embossing Folder

Let’s get back to my card! The piece of Come to Gather Designer Series Paper is layered with Cajun Craze cardstock, two colors I wouldn’t have paired together had I not seen how beautiful these colors are in this paper! This layer has Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back. 

The sentiment is from the stamp set, Very Versailles, and it was cut out with a 1″ Circle Punch.  I tend to primarily use Whisper White cardstock but for today’s card, I used Very Vanilla when stamping the sentiment. It sits on a layer of Merry Merlot cardstock that was cut using the 1-1/8″ Scallop Circle Punch and a Cajun Craze layer using the 1-3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch.  If you’d like to make today’s card, I’ve included the measurements below the supply list!

Layered Leaves & Very Versailles


Happy Monday!

If you enjoy making quick and easy cards, today’s card fits into that category!  I used the beautiful Very Versailles stamp set along with the Layered Leaves  embossing folder. I love the font used for the sentiment! It’s so pretty!

Please note: I just found out this morning that the Layered Leaves embossing folder is unavailable and can’t be found in my online store BUT it IS in the catalog and will be available soon.  Stampin’ Up! up has switched to a new supplier for the embossing folders and this has caused some delays in getting new stock.  I apologize for this inconvenience.

I used Old Olive for the base of the card and then added another layer of Old Olive so that I could emboss it. I used the Layered Leaves embossing folder and kept with the theme of leaves. I again used Old Olive to stamp the leaves and for the sentiment, I used Blackberry Bliss. This top layer has been popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Free as a Bird stamp set

I used our 2019-2021 In Color 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper (DSP) in Pretty Peacock along with Pretty Peacock, Night of Navy and Whisper White cardstock. Before I glued the DSP onto the Whisper White, I embossed it using the Brick & Mortar embossing folder and my die-cutting machine.  I wrapped our Pretty Peacock 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon around the panel before gluing it to the Pretty Peacock cardstock. 

The sentiment was stamped in Pretty Peacock ink and cut out with the Stitched Nested Labels Dies. Using the same dies, a larger one was cut out of Night of Navy cardstock. The two pieces were adhered together using Snail but then Stampin’ Dimensionals were added to the back of the Night of Navy shape. 

I added three Noble Peacock Rhinestones in Pretty Peacock to complete the card.
