I keep saying I need to have some sympathy cards ready for when the need arises but I never do and wish I had so I can get them out in the mail right away. Just before I left for vacation my Son in laws Grandfather passed away. This first card is the one I sent to him.
It is a one layer card, I usually work on a piece of card stock or designer paper that I add to my card base but I thought I would try to do all my stamping onto the white card base. I stamped the leaves once and then moved the stamp and stamped again without reinking the stamp to give it that shadow look. I used a little wink of stella on the dragonfly.
Inkadinkado-- Garden Delight stamp set
Pebbles Inc. -- thinking of you rub on
Cloud 9 design -- Rain drops
Wink of stella -- clear glitter pen
I also made a card for my son in laws mother, it was her Dad that passed away. I used the same stamp but stamped it in a couple of different colored inks.
Inkadinkado -- Garden Delight stamp set
Taylored Expressions -- Care and comfort II sentiment stamp set
Paper from my scraps bin
I have been gone once again since October 6 and just arrived home earlier today. I am way behind once again on your blogs, I will hopefully be caught up very soon. We went back to Michigan, my oldest brother hosted a siblings get together and we also went to see my hubby's Dad, sister and brother too, and of course we had to take a little drive and stopped at a few Light houses, I will share later if they turned out, haven't even looked at them yet, and I never did get around to sharing any from the Grand Canyon on our last trip. Well I will have time in the future, this is our last long trips to take for the year, probably until spring :)
Thanks for all your sweet comments, I so appreciate you letting me know you stopped by,
