Sympathy Card ~ Always Remember

This is one of the cards that we made at the Poppy Party Open House this weekend, I thought you might like the Project Sheet so that you can make your own.  I stamped the poppy with Memento ink and colored it in the Stampin' Blends.  The blends that I used are Poppy Parade, Old Olive and a touch of Light Balmy Blue on the left side of the stem and the flower for a little shading.  I was planning on using Melon Mambo Blends but, guess?  Stampin' Up! does not have blends in the color ~ surprise!  Anyway, remember when you are using blends, use the light blend first, shade with the dark blend and come back with the light blend before the ink dries to blend the two colors together ~ light, dark, light!  Print off the instructions for this card, unfortunately we all need Sympathy cards.  I am thinking of having a class just for Sympathy cards, what do you think?  Good idea or not?

Another Valentine idea for you!  This one uses the HEARTFELT BUNDLE on page 9 in Stampin' Up!'s Spring Mini Catalog.  It coordinates with the FROM MY HEART SPECIALTY DESIGNER SERIES PAPER (yesterday's video) and the two punches in the bundle fit right over the hearts in the paper making card creating EASY PEASY!  If you need some supplies, call me or SHOP ONLINE ~ see that cute cat on the right named SHOP ~ click there!

Another Fall card for you.  I guess that I am not quite ready to move into December and Christmas yet.  I stopped in at McDonald's Nursery yesterday and was a little surprised when I walked in the front door and it was ALL CHRISTMAS!  Nope, not ready yet!

This is a familiar stamp set, ROOTED IN NATURE, that has been in the catalog for several years.  You can find it on page 148 in the annual catalog.  It also uses my current favorite dies ~ Gathered Leaves.  Enjoy!
