Hero Arts Magnolia Flowering Stamp Sympathy Card


Howdy everyone,
Today I am sharing this quick sympathy card I made for a friend who’s life partner passed away.  This stamp serves as a constant reminder to all of us that nothing, not even the next minute is promised to us and that we should enjoy our love ones and the beauty that surrounds us daily.  Too often we focus on the tragedies that befall someone instead of praising God for today’s journey, his love, his mercy, his blessing…

To make this 4 ¼ “x 5 ½ “card I used some light gray and white cardstock from Michaels.  I made the patterned paper using some white cardstock, Memento “Gray Flannel” ink, and a Wendy Vecchi Gingham Background Stamp. The Magnolia stamp is from Hero Arts “Flowering Magnolia”.  I adhered the Magnolia image to the patterned piece and mounted that on some 2mm white fun foam.  I coloured the Magnolia stamp using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and touches of Copic Markers.  I used Kooh-I-Noor Bristol Smooth multi-media paper for my water coloured image and paint bushes #0,2, and 6.  I stamped a faint image of a postage stamp in the top right corner using JustRite Cling stamp set “Greetings From Paris”. I cut the Magnolia image out using a Memory Box “Postage Square Layers” die.  The patterned paper is cut out using Spellbinders Card Creator 6”x6” Matting Basics B dies.  The sentiment and greeting are from a Stampin’ UP! Stamp set called “Thoughts & Prayers”.  I stamped it in Versa Mark and heat embossed it using Silver fine detail embossing powder.

Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to enjoy every moment…
