Cards- Sympathy

Blessings of Home Sympathy Card

Today I have another sympathy card.  I had a sympathy class a while back and I've been sharing the cards now and then.  Unfortunately, at my age, I've been needing them more and more.  So here's the card.  It features the Blessings of Home Bundle with the Flowers of Home dies.

Blessings  of Home  Hive EF  In Good Taste DSP  Tailor Made Tags dies  Flowers of Home dies  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

The base of this card is Night of Navy cut 4 1/4 x 11.  Score at 5 1/2.   

I've added a piece of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper that is cut to 4 x 5 1/2.  When the paper is cut this way I can still get 6 card fronts out of one 12 x 12 sheet.  I like it this way.  Simply leave a little space on each side.

Cut two tags using the Tailor Made Tags dies.  Use Basic White.  Use the largest tag.  Run both of the tags through the Hive 3D Embossing Folder.   I glued the two tags together in the middle so that they would span the diagonal of the card front.  The seam is covered by the flower.  Hint:  If you feel that the tags glued together will cause too much bulk, just trim them before you glue them together.

Stamp the largest flower in Night of Navy ink on Basic White.  Cut using the coordinating dies.  Add to the card covering the seam of the tags.  Use dimensionals. 

The saying is from the Many Happenings stamp set.  Just stamp in navy and cut the ends.

Finish up the card by cutting leaves in Garden Green and Night of Navy flowers.  Use the  Flowers of Home dies.  Glue those in place.  

The navy twine bows come from the Fan Baker's Twine.

For the inside of the card, the saying is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.

Artistically Inked Sympathy Card

I have another sympathy card today.  This one could be for any occasion with a change of the sentiment.  I used the Artistically Inked stamp set and the Artistic dies.  I love the Blackberry Bliss inks with Shaded Spruce.  Here is a picture.

Artistically Inked Sympathy Card  Artistic dies  White Glittered Organdy Ribbon  Timeworn Type  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

I think this is so pretty!  The base is Thick Basic White.  It is cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, score and fold at 4 1/4.  Use a Bone Folder for the crease.  Run a piece of 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 Basic White through the Cut & Emboss Machine with the Timeworn Type folder.  There are words on this folder so be careful to glue this layer right side up.

Here's what you'll need to stamp in Blackberry Bliss:  One large flower, two smaller flowers ( one on the inside of the card.  In Shaded Spruce, stamp 3 of the larger double leaves (one goes on the inside), and 2 of the small single leaves.

Cut out all of the pieces using the Artistic dies.  Glue down the largest flower.  One of the smaller flowers is added down and a little to the left.  Add this one with dimensionals.  All of the leaves are added with a glue dot at the bottom and dimensionals out toward the ends.

Add a 4 inch piece of the White Glittered Organdy Ribbon folded over.  I added just a little seal to hold it in place.  Trim the ends.

This saying is from Many Messages.  I stamped the saying by just inking the bottom of the large stamp in Blackberry Bliss.  Then I just used my trimmer to cut it out.  Cut the ends with snips.

Glue the flower and leaves down on the inside of the card.  The saying is from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set.

Ranunculus Romance Bundle for a Sympathy Card

Hello to you!  I had a request to have a sympathy card class.  This kind of card is not a joy to need, but let's face it, in these times, they are certainly needed.  It's always good to have a few on hand.  I'm going to share a card with you using the Ranunculus Romance Bundle with the Ranunculus dies.  

Ranuculus romance card  Ranuculus dies  blends  Heart and Home DSP  Luv 2 Create  Jo Anne Hewins

I do think the saying can be changed to make this card appropriate for other occasions.  It's really pretty.

The base of this card is Basic Gray.  It measures 4 1/4 x 11.  Score and fold at 5 1/2.  The patterned paper for this card is from the Heart & Home Designer Series Paper.  The size is 4 x 5 1/2.  You can see that the paper runs all the way to the top and bottom and has a border on each side.  I ran this paper through the Cut & Emboss Machine with the Timber Embossing Folder.  By doing this, the paper is a bit wrinkly.  I suggest using Seal to attach this layer to the card front.  Be generous.

The piece of Vellum Card Stock is cut using the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  Use the Stamparatus to stamp the vellum.  Add the stamp to a plate and then trace the vellum shape on the small grid paper so that the stamp will be in the right place.  Usually Stazon is used for Vellum, but I wanted to continue with the gray theme.  I used Basic Gray.  I needed to repeat the stamping process three times to make the words dark enough to see.  Note that the ink will sit on the paper for a while and will smear.  Set the Vellum aside to dry or use the Heat Tool.  Add the vellum to the card front.  I used Seal on the left side of the Vellum shape.  It will be covered if you see the adhesive.  The stamp is from the Prized Peony stamp set.

Stamp the two stems of flowers on Basic White using Basic Gray ink.  Use the So Saffron Combo Blends as well as the Granny Apple Green, and Daffodil Delight combos to color the flowers.  Cut these out with the Ranunculus dies. 

Cut two stems using the same dies from Basic Gray card stock.  Before cutting I added some of the Adhesive Sheets to the Basic Gray.  This turns the stems into stickers when the backing is removed.  I love this! 

Add the larger stem of flowers with dimensionals.  The other stem overlaps the first.  Put a dimensional at the tip and glue down the stem.  

Finish off the card with Basic Gray dots from the Classic Matte Dots.  These have adhesive on the back.  The twine bow is from the Baker's Twine Essentials Pack.

For the inside, stamp a saying from Prized Peony and the larger stem all in Basic Gray ink.  The Basic White card stock is cut to 4 x 5 1/2.  There is a border on the sides.  When adding make sure that the card will close. Trim a little off the bottom if needed.

Delicate Dahlias Facebook Live 8.25.2021 More Cards!

First of all, let me say I did not have a Facebook Live but instead made a video to upload.  I'm not feeling my best.  For my video this week, I made more cards using the Delicate Dahlias stamp set.  This set can be earned for free with a $100 purchase during Sale-a-Bration during August and September.

DELICATE DAHLIAS PHOTOPOLYMER STAMP SET (ENGLISH)

Here are the cards we made this week.

These cards focus mainly on the outline images of this stamp.  Here is the video and then I'll talk about each card.

 

Delicate Dahlias for Facebook Live 8.25.2021 Gray and Silver by Jo Anne Hewins

The base of this card is Basic Gray 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded in half.  The patterned paper is from the Peaceful Place Designer Series Paper measuring 4 x 5 1/4.

The scalloped column is 1 1/4 x 6.  Cut the scallop on one side using the Scalloped Contours dies.  Glue to the card trying to make the scallops at the top and bottom about the same.  Trim excess from the back.

The center panel is also cut using the Scalloped Contours dies.  Stamp the largest flower from Delicate Dahlias in Versamark and emboss with silver embossing powder.  The saying is silver embossed on a piece of Basic Gray 2 inches by 1 1/4 inches.  Add the panel with dimensionals.

Embellish with a silver bow (Simply Elegant Trim) and Basic Rhinestones.

Delicate Dahlias for Facebook Live 8.25.2021 Pool Party Card by Jo Anne Hewins

The base of this card is 4 1/4 x 11 and folded at 5 1/2.  Stamp the largest flower stamp down the sides of the base in Pool Party.  The patterned paper down the center is the Beautifully Penned Designer Series Paper, also a free Sale-a-Bration choice with a $50 order.  The paper is cut to 2 1/2 x 5 1/2.  Add to the center of the card.  I use my Grid Paper to help make sure it's in the center and straight.

Cut the panel with the Scalloped Contours dies from Basic White.  Stamp the largest flower in Memento Black.  Use a Light Pool Party Blend to fill in the space between the flowers.

Tie some of the Black Organdy Ribbon around the panel and tie into a knot.  Add the panel with dimensionals.

Stamp the saying and trim around it.  Glue to the card.  

Embellish with the Artistry Blooms Self Adhesive Sequins.

Delicate Dahlias for Facebook Live 8.25.2021 Highland Heather by Jo Anne Hewins

For the last card, the base is Highland Heather 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded.  Using Versamark, stamp the base of the card with the outline leaves.

Cut a piece of Basic Black measuring 3 1/4 x 4.  Run this through the Cut & Emboss machine with the Dots/Checks embossing folder (Checks).

Add a piece of the Black and White Gingham Ribbon across the panel taping in the back.

Stamp the largest outline flower on Basic White in Memento.  Color using the Dark Highland Heather blend, the Light  Fresh Fresh Freesia, and the Light Flirty Flamingo Blend.  Fussy cut and add in the lower corner with dimensionals.

Add the Black and White Gingham Ribbon bow with a glue dot.

Stamp the saying and trim just the Thank You.  Glue.

Embellish with the 2021-2023 In Color Jewels.

Delicate Dahlias for Facebook Live 8.18.2021 by Jo Anne Hewins

For my first card, the base is Evening Evergreen 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  The patterned paper is from the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper.  It's cut to 4 x 5 1/4.  

I used Calypso Coral, Real Red, and Cherry Cobbler for my flower.  I show you how I did it on the video.  For the leaves use Pear Pizzazz and Evening Evergreen.  The leaves and flower are cut out with our snips and added to the card with dimensionals.  The saying is on a 1/2 inch piece of Basic White scrap.  I used the Gold Shimmer Ribbon from the Mini catalog to tie a knot.  Add with glue dots.  Finish with some of the Gilded Gems.

I did show how to use the masking technique for the inside of the card.

Delicate Dahlias in Blackberry for Facebook Live 8.18. 2021 by Jo Anne Hewins

I just love the colors for this card.  I used Blackberry Bliss and Granny Apple Green.

Begin with a base of Thick Basic White of 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, score and fold at 4 1/4.  Again I used the masking technique for this card.  

When creating your own background it's best to begin with your largest image and work down to the smallest.

Use the Scalloped Contours dies for the panel.

Finish the card with some of the Basic Rhinestones.

Delicate Dahlias by Jo Anne Hewins for Facebook Live 8.18.2021 Card
