Shakin' Things UP!

Hey stampers!  I have a new project for you tonight but before I show what I got, I want to let you know to that Stampin'UP! has a new promotion going right now. I have added a link to my sidebar to take you to flyer.  If you place an order for this stamp set with me, I will give you an extra entry into my blog candy giveaway.  Want to earn it for free, send me an email at and we can schedule your workshop.  On to my project for today.  I have needed several Sympathy cards lately and I have to tell you that they are my least favorite card to make but I think that they should still be nice looking.  I made a card for husband to take for his boss, who just lost her cousin to cancer and the second one is for a coworker of mine that lost her grandmother.  The first card uses just "Close as a Memory" stamp set.  I used Pacific Point which was last year's In Color, I know it is retired but I hear rumors of a come back....stay tuned for more on that.  I used Soft Sky which is also a retired color, no grumblings about that one.  I used the new Scallop border punch for the bottom of the Soft Sky piece.  I stamped the flower image from the stamp set in Pacific Point ink, I loaded my stamp with ink, and I stamped off before stamping onto my card stock.  I did that a couple of times.  I put two silver brads in top right corner and stamped, "With Heartfelt Sympathy" in bottom right corner with Pacific Point ink again. 

For the other card, I used More Mustard as my base, with a rectangle of Old Olive, I used a piece of green ribbon, and I used the Close as a Memory set as well as "Very Versatile"  this set is retired, it was from a mini from last year.  I used the tree image from that set to make a background on the More Mustard.  I attached my green ribbon and then used dimensionals to attach the Old Olive piece.  I stamped the flower image from the Close as a Memory set in Versa mark on the Olive card stock.  I stamped it several times.  Then I stamped the "With heartfelt Sympathy" in black Staz On.  I used 6 silver square brads in a line under the the Old Olive piece.  I think for sympathy cards that they turned out pretty well but I am hoping to go longer than a week before having to make more.  Thanks for stopping by, leave a comment and get entered in to my blog candy which I am drawing the winner on Saturday. 

Come and create something with me,
