With Sympathy

Today I’m sharing a CAS card that I made using  Flower Banner 1 (KLM Digital Designs).  It comes with multiple sentiments, but I decided to choose the “with Sympathy” sentiment. You could also use this image to make a Mother’s Day card or a special birthday card too!

For this card, I printed out the image with my HP Printer onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Grayscale. Then I coloured it in with Copic markers and applied to a 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base.

Card Recipe:

Stamp and Sentiment: Flower Banner 1 (KLM Digital Designs)

Inks: HP Printer Grayscale

Paper: Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card, Recollections – Purple Passions 8.5″ x 11″

Sympathy Card – Cat

Hi There!

Sharing a sympathy card that I made for a dear cousin that had to say goodbye to her little son around Christmas time. I say son, because to us, our cats are like children. We love them and cherish them in our lives everyday and it is heartbreaking when we have to let them go and say our final good-byes. We also lost our little girl last year and not a day goes by that I don’t think of her or the others that we’ve had to say good-bye to. So we know first hand how it feels when someone else we know loses their pet.

For the card front, I chose the little girl holding onto her cat because I thought it represented how we still hold onto our loved ones in our hearts long after they are gone. I left the cat white as “Spot” was a white cat.

Here is a close-up of the image.

Sympathy Card

Hi There,

Back again to share another Sympathy card that I made using stamps and dies from My Creative Time – My Thoughts are With You and My Creative Time -Stitched Rectangular Frames and More.

I can’t take credit for the original design, as I was inspired by a card made by Brigit Mann who created a similar card during the blog hop for this stamp set back in July, 2015.


I coloured in all of the flowers and stems with Spectrum Noir markers. To give the water effect to the jar, I used Parchment Paper – Shaded Blue – Code 61582. I then used a stylus on the back of the paper to put in the jar lines like the actual stamp. To get the depth of the jar, I used some fun foam which I cut out with the die cut so that it would be the same shape and give the shaker a nice solid enclosure. Lastly, I added in some sequence to fill the bottom of the jar.

Background paper is from My Mind’s Eye – Summer Papers – Quite Contrary by Jen Allyson and Roe Pearn.

Hope you like it!
