Sympathy cards can be difficult to create and often at a tough time.  Pastel colours and floral imagery are a good rule of thumb when creating a sympathy card.  Here I have paired the elegant Delicate Dahlias stamp set with a soft polka dot patterned paper from the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper pack.

Here is one of my first Christmas cards of the year...  This Christmas card was created using the amazing Merriest Moments stamp set and coordinating Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder.  The very pretty, non-traditional colours for this card were inspired by the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Have you seen the beautiful Strong of Heart stamp set?  This is a special charity stamp set where Stampin' Up! will donate $4.50 NZD to support heart health for every Strong of Heart stamp set purchased.  I just love the brushstroke heart image from this stamp set and have stamped it on a Polished Pink Ombre Gift Bag...

Happy Father's Day to all those men who have courageously nurtured and intentionally influenced our future generations.

Have you tried the Alcohol Inking Technique using Stampin' Blends (alcohol markers) and Isopropyl Alcohol?  It is a fun way to create swirling and pooling patterns that are similar to what you see in the Expressions in Ink Specialty Designer Series Paper.

The daisies in the Color & Contour Bundle make me smile!  I have stamped them in Gorgeous Grape and Fresh Freesia inks for the front of this fun fold card.  This card front has so much dimension with the flowers stamped, die-cut, and layered over each other.  

I recently made a number of these pretty note cards to send to everyone who placed an order with me.  They were created using the Color & Contour Bundle paired with the gorgeous striped patterned from the You're a Peach Designer Series Paper.

Did you see my Father's Day Gatefold Card?  I have created a fun, coordinating gift box to go with it...
