Hand-Penned Sympathy Card, AND STAMP SALE COMING TOMORROW!

Handmade sympathy card using Peaceful Moments stamp set by Stampin' Up! created by Peggy Noe of Pretty Paper Cards #sympathycard #peacefulmomemts #peggynoe #prettypapercards #stampinup

We all need sympathy cards and I’ve needed several recently. The Peaceful Moments stamp set has a nice sentiment that I like to use for this type of card.

The Basic White card base is 7-1/2″ x 5-1/2,” scored at 4-1/4.” A 3″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Soft Succulent card stock was embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and adhered to the front of the card. The beautiful Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper was cut with one of the Encircled In Beauty Dies to form a pretty circle. The side of the circle was cut off and the circle adhered over the front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals, as shown.

A 3/4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of the Hand-Penned paper was then adhered on the right edge. A piece of Basic White cardstock was cut with the floral die from the Penned Flowers Dies and layered on top of the circle. The sentiment was stamped in Soft Succulent ink and punched with the Everyday Label Die. This is a nice design for a sympathy card. I’ve made several, as it’s nice to have a few on hand.

Delicate Dahlias!

Delicate Dahlias Sympathy Card made with Stampin' Up! products and created by Peggy Noe of Pretty Paper Cards #delicatedahlias #stampinup #stampingup #peggynoe #prettypapercards

Sale-a-Bration is almost over ~ it only lasts until this Thursday, September 30th. If you haven’t had the opportunity to get this FREE Delicate Dahlias stamp set, you must! It’s my favorite item in the Sale-a-Bration Catalog (HERE)!

Delicate Dahlias Sympathy Card made with Stampin' Up! products and created by Peggy Noe of Pretty Paper Cards #delicatedahlias #stampinup #stampingup #peggynoe #prettypapercards #dahlia

To create the multicolored dahlia, I used sponge daubers to add three different ink colors to the stamp. The ink colors are Polished Pink, Daffodil Delight, and Pale Papaya. I actually stamped two flowers on Basic White cardstock and fussy cut them. I cut one flower in half and glued the halves onto the back of the other flower, one on each side. I also stamped a few leaves in Granny Apple Green ink and fussy cut them. I also glued them to the back of the dahlia.

The Delicate Dahlias stamp set is available with a $100+ order in my online store.

The card base is 6-1/2″ x 5-1/2,” scored at 4-1/4.” The front flap of the card is stamped with the leaves stamp in Pear Pizzaz ink. A 1″ x 5-1/2″ strip of Pale Papaya cardstock was glued behind the right edge of the front flap with just 1/2″ showing.

On the right inside of the card is a piece of the Pale Papaya gingham paper from the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper. The sentiment is stamped in Polished Pink ink and cut with a die from the Grapevine Dies.

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.
