Peaceful Poppies Suite - Sympathy card

We make cards mostly for happy occasions, but occasionally we also need Sympathy cards - ones that are necessary, but which are not necessarily made with any pleasure or enjoyment.

Any bereavement whether it is a cherished friend, a relative or a much loved pet takes the stuffing out of you, and it is just as important to send a card to tell that person(s) you are thinking of them.


My friend lost her beautiful pet recently and I made this sympathy card using the images from the Painted Poppies stamp set, and the sentiments from the Peaceful Moments stamp set in the Peaceful Poppies Suite.  You'll find it on pages 24-27 in the January to June 2020 Mini Catalogue.    I used the Stitched So Sweetly Dies on page 20 from the So Sentimental Bundle to die cut a mat layer in Basic Black, and stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and partially stamped the head of the poppy flower to fill the spaces on the label.  


For the splashes of colour, I referenced the Peaceful Poppies DSP, having used a 3-3/4" x 2" (9.5 cm x 5 cm) strip to adhere to my Very Vanilla mat layer and used Stampin' Blends combo in Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive.

I hope the card brought them a little comfort that we were thinking of them at this sad time.

Listed below are several options to the supply list
  • just the stamp set alone, 
  • or the bundle price for the stamp set bundle which includes the coordinating dies, 
  • or the Peaceful Poppies Suite bundle which will include both Peaceful Moments & Painted Poppies Bundles plus a pack of the Peaceful Poppies DSP, Peaceful Poppies sequins, Whisper White 1/4" (6.4 mm) crinkled seam binding ribbon and the Peaceful Poppies elements.
Don't forget, any qualifying purchases (£45 excluding shipping/handling) you make  during the Sale-A-Bration period from 3 January to 31 March will earn you a free product from the Sale-A-Bration brochure!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and thanks for stopping by.

It's All About the Lily

What a lovely coordinated choice in the Sale-A-Bration brochure!

First at Level 1 is the reversible Lovely Lily Pad stamp set where you can stamp the solid image on the flat side, clean it, then flip it over to stamp the linear image on the reverse!  Then there are the dies at Level 2 which I used to die cut all the images including that border and if you're an avid crafter, you can earn the Lily Pad Impressions DSP too which is at Level 1.  

Hmmm... which category do you think I fall in?


Press play on the video to see how I made it.   I also show a simply stamped version, followed by the occasional crafter version with some extras and of course this all singing, all dancing one!



The Lovely Lily Pad stamp set and Lily Impressions DSP are Sale-a-bration Level 1 items and the Lily Pad dies is a Level 2 item which are free subject to a qualifying order excluding shipping/handling.



Thanks for visiting!

Peaceful Moments Bundle – Happy Birthday to You

As promised, I am back with the other half of the fabulous Peaceful Poppies Suite.  The stamp set for the Peaceful Moments Bundle has a variety of lovely sentiments and the dies are designed so that some of the dies will layer on top of another to complete the image.  



I thought the dies complimented the "Happy Birthday To You" Sale-a-bration stamp set.  What do you think?

The cake was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and coloured in with Stampin' Blends in Old Olive and Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight combos.



Here are the supplies I used - the Happy Birthday To You Cling Stamp Set is a Sale-A-Bration stamp set which can only be earned FREE with a qualifying spend of £45 excluding shipping/handling.
