Finding the words to convey sympathy is always difficult. I really appreciated this stamp set from Heartfelt Creations, "Sympathy Sentiment" PreCut Set (HCPC 3377). There is a beautiful word stamp that is in the new release catalog from Magenta . . . "May the love . . ." (07.817.H) that I've included in my pink sheet order. I digress. So I put my stamp, ink pad, die set and papers together to make this card . . .

  • Sympathy Sentiment PreCut Set from Heartfelt Creations (HCPC 3377)
  • Spellbinders' Nestabilities Majestic Elements "Marvelous Squares" (S4-383)
  • IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko VersaFine in Majestic Blue
  • 140 lb. cold press watercolor paper (card base)
  • Authentique 6x6 Paper Bundle:  Strong
  • Graphic 45 6x6 Patterns & Solids:  Spring Garden
  • Tombow Multi Mono Liquid Glue
  • Adhesive-backed pearls
  • Pop-Dots
The middle square with the stamped image was adhered with pop dots. The intricate die cut details were adhered with this little bottle of adhesive from Tombow. Dianne said to try it for those little 'spots' because the nose of the bottle at one end is so fine. I bought it and tried it out. It works! You too can use this wonderful adhesive that's available at Art 'n Soul!

From the Idea Page on the Memory Box website, this is a nice card made with washi tape . . . stamps! from Memory Box. Until I can order those stamps from Art 'n Soul, I'll have to use washi tapes from my stash.

It's time to do some quick pick-me-ups before I turn in. I'm really looking forward to Marj's class tomorrow afternoon. I hope to see you there!
