NEW VIDEO: Clean & Simple Sympathy Notecard!

Handmade sympathy card made with the Pretty Perennial Samp Set by Stampin' Up! designed by Peggy Noe of Pretty Paper Cards #prettyperennials #sympathycard #peggynoe #prettypapercards

Clean and simple is just what is needed for a sympathy card. This is a beautiful way to show that you care.

Here’s a Facebook Live tutorial showing how to make this card:

It’s so easy to create a “watercolor wash” look with Stampin’ Blends! Here I used a very light color ~ Seaside Spray, to give a soft look to the sympathy card.

Leaving lots of white on a card can create a striking contrast with even a soft color. Clean and simple cards make a statement, particularly for an occasion like this.

Add the leaves and flowers cut with the Perennial Petals Dies and you have a lovely card.

VIDEO: Gorgeous Posies Sympathy and Get Well Cards!

Gorgeous Posies Sympathy Stampin' Up! Pretty Paper Cards

The easily overlooked Gorgeous Posies stamp set creates watercolor looking flowers and leaves and has nice sentiments for some of our most important cards. By most important I mean sympathy and get well cards. They are important because we send them to encourage and comfort others ~ some of our dear friends and family.

Today’s cards are examples of both types of cards created with this set. And below is my Facebook Live video showing you just how to make them!

Peaceful Poppies Sympathy Card!

Peaceful Poppies Sympathy Card by Peggy Noe of Pretty Paper Cards

Every so often we need a sympathy card, right? The new Peaceful Moments stamp set has a nice sympathy sentiment that I like, and the Painted Poppies stamp set has the prettiest poppies. They made just the card I needed!

This card is watercolored with an Aqua Painter on a 3-3/4″ x 5″ piece of our Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper. Watercoloring with an Aqua Painter is very similar to using alcohol markers for coloring. It’s easy and relaxing 🙂

Peaceful Poppies Sympathy Stampin' Up! Pretty Paper Cards

The poppies were stamped on the watercolor paper with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Then the poppies were watercolored with Terracotta Tile ink. The leaves were stamped in Pear Pizzaz ink and then watercolored also with Pear Pizzaz ink.

Peaceful Poppies Sympathy Stampin' Up! Peggy Noe

To add more dimension and interest I heat embossed a few more of the small poppies with the White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. They were watercolored with Daffodil Delight ink and fussy cut. I also stamped a few more leaves in the same manner as above, watercolored them, and fussy cut them also. They were then added in and adhered with Multipurpose Glue and some with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Sympathy Card Peaceful Poppies by Peggy Noe

The watercolored panel was then glued onto a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Daffodil Delight card stock and then glued again onto a standard Whisper White card stock 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ card base, scored at 4-1/4.” The sentiment was stamped in Terracotta Tile ink on Whisper White card stock and punched with the Timeless Label Punch. The label was then attached to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The poppies are so pretty! I’m going to be using this stamp set a lot! Here’s a fun video showing you the entire suite ~ so many gorgeous coordinating items!!

Woven Heirlooms Sympathy Card

Stampin' Up! Woven Threads prayer - Peggy Noe - stampinup
The Woven Heirlooms stamp set is a very beautiful set. It has some vintage images and sentiments in a lovey script font. The sentiment above is for a sympathy card, but there are also thank you, birthday, and thinking of you sentiments!

 

 

Stampin' Up! Woven Threads sympathy - Peggy Noe - stampinup

This card starts with a Crumb Cake card base 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4.” A piece of Merry Merlot card stock cut at 5-1/4″ x 4″ was dry embossed using the Tin Tile 3D Embossing Folder. This embossing folder goes so well with the vintage look of this card (it’s one of my favorite folders!).

Stampin' Up! Woven Threads prayer - prettypapercards - stampinup

The sentiment is stamped in Crumb Cake ink on a 2″ x 2″ piece of Very Vanilla card stock. A 2-1/4″ x 2-1/4″ piece of Crumb Cake card stock frames the sentiment piece. The two small pieces were adhered with multipurpose glue and then set on the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Gatefold Sympathy Card for Lovely as a Tree :-(

Stampin' Up! Lovely as a Tree Sympathy Card - prettypapercards - stampinup

A sympathy card seems appropriate for this retiring stamp set, Lovely as a Tree. All of Stampin’ Up! has recently had a retirement party for this stamp set that’s been around for SO many years. And it’s only available for a few more weeks!

Stampin' Up! Lovely as a Tree Sympathy - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Today’s card is a gatefold card, the front is like a gate with the two sides folding inward to the center. The base of the card is Crumb Cake card stock.Each side of the “gate” was topped with a piece of Petal Pink card stock. A tree from the stamp set has been stamped on two pieces of Shimmery White card stock, one for each side. The trees were each colored with Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend Markers and then adhered to the Petal Pink pieces.

Stampin' Up! Lovely as a Tree Sympathy - prettypapercards - stampinup

A piece of Very Vanilla card stock was adhered to the center of the card, and this is what you see when you “open” the gates 🙂 The sentiment on the front of the card is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set. It was stamped in Crumb Cake ink on Very Vanilla card stock and then punched out with the Classic Label Punch and attached with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. A few Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets were added to the front of the card.

Lovely Lattice Sympathy Card!

Stampin' Up! Lovely Lattice Sympathy - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Hello friends! Today I have a sympathy card that was created using the new Lovely Lattice Sale-a-Bration stamp set (FREE with a $50 order). This stamp set is perfect for coloring with your Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers 🙂

The floral image was stamped in Sahara Sand ink on Whisper White card stock. The flowers were then colored with Light and Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends. The insides of the flowers were colored with the dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blend. The leaves were colored with Light and Dark Soft Sea Foam Blends. After the image was colored, it was cut out with Paper Snips so that it could be lifted up on Stampin’ Dimensionals. This gives depth to the card.

Stampin' Up! Lovely Lattice - prettypapercards - stampinup

The floral image was placed on a watercolored 5″ x 3-3/4″ piece of Shimmery White card stock. This was watercolored with Soft Sea Foam ink. (Be sure to use this card stock when you watercolor because it is made especially for this purpose.) Behind the watercolored piece is a similar piece of Petal Pink card stock, cut to the same dimensions and then glued at an angle to the Whisper White card base (5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″).

The sentiment is from the Lasting Lily Cling Stamp Set (also FREE during Sale-a-Bration), and it was stamped onto the watercolored piece with Flirty Flamingo ink.

Do you see the Vellum leaves tucked behind the floral image? Those were punched with the Leaf Punch and the Vellum was colored on the back with the Light Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend. I let the ink dry and then tucked the stems or the leaves under the flowers, adhering them with a few dots of Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Lovely Lattice - Peggy Noe - stampinupA few Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins were placed around the flowers. I didn’t notice when I was taking the pictures, but the sequin on the lower right of the flowers is kind of standing up on its side! Oops! Now I see it in all of the pictures!! 🙂

I hope this gives you some ideas of how you can use the Lovely Lattice stamp set. If you like it, be sure to get it right away. Many of the Sale-a-Bration items are running out.
