Bloggers Challenge

This weeks Bloggers Challenge was to create a Sympathy Card. This is always something no one likes to do, but everyone has to send them. I decided to create 3 and share them with you....









This first cards uses all SU products.
Stamps - Time Well Spent, Baroque Motifs, Hugs & Wishes, and A Beautiful Thing (flower center)







This next card uses stamps from Flourishes - I just love the Flourished Words Set, and the Flower is from Fantasy Floral Garden. The DSP you see is from SU's new DSP, Bali Breeze. Flourishes has just released some great new sets - be sure to check them out!



The last card I have to show you uses the Artful Inkables Blossoms & Petals and the sentiment from SU's Hugs & Wishes. To create the BG, I pressed glossy card stock to my Marker Wash card shown here, then let it dry, and stamped my images in basic brown ink.
If you'd like to join this weeks challenge and create a sympathy card - be sure to leave a link in this post, so I can check it out!

Have a great weekend!

They are all great cards, Lisa!!! It seems I am always needing, and making, sympathy cards. The Flourishes card is just lovely -- great use of the Flourished Words and floral images!!!

All 3 cards are beautiful. I really like the background in the last one.

Gorgeous! What perfect samples - each appropriate for those times when we need to reach out to someone who is grieving.

Lisa! I was going to try and pick a favorite but I guess it'll have to be all of them! They are all beautiful and so fitting!

Stefanie said...

Beautiful cards Lisa. I love the simplicity of the Stampin' Up! card.

Karen said...
