Kre8tors Blog Hop Sympathy Cards

Hello Kre8tors! Welcome back to my blog. Today is a special edition because it’s once again time for the Kre8tors Blog Hop! Where a group of Stampin’ Up!®️Independent Demonstrators from around the globe get together to inspire you with beautiful projects! This month’s theme is Sympathy. I have experienced quite a few losses in the month of September, so I thought I would honor those people in my own way, by using my creativity to inspire and share with others.

For my Sympathy card, I decided to use Flourishing Phrases, a classic in the Annual Catalog. It is such a versatile set and so beautiful for a card like this. I wanted to use Gray Granite and Mint Macaron, and think this combination is beautiful with this stamp set.

I love using our Whisper White ribbons and baker’s twine because I can dye it any color I need with our ink! I used that technique on this card to match my ribbon with the Mint Macaron. I also used some of the gorgeous basic adhesive backed sequins to add a little bling. Check out my video tutorial below, and don’t forget to hop along to the other demonstrator’s blogs and see their beautiful, heartfelt projects.

Measurements:

Whisper White Cardbase: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″, Scored @ 4-1/4″
Whisper White Card Mat: 3-3/4″ x 5″
Scrap of cardstock for circle template


Materials:

If you don’t already have a demonstrator, I would love to be your Creative Coach! How can I help you?
If your order is over $150, don’t use a hostess code because you qualify for your own Stampin’ Rewards!
If your order is less than $150, use my current hostess code 2YZTD9GK when you place your order to get a thank you card from me at the beginning of next month! Your support means a lot to me and helps me to continue doing what I love, which is making videos for you to enjoy.
