Sympathy Cards

Standard

     Here are a variety of sympathy cards I made to give to our local Ronald McDonald House’s in Portland, Oregon.

??????????     This card uses the Blended Bloom stamp (wood mount only, #135906) for the flower and colored with the Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities markers (#130995).  The words are from Bloom with Hope stamp set (available to Hostesses with a qualifying $150 order).  The designer paper is Flower Pot (#133698) on Lost Lagoon (#133679) card stock, one of the new 2014-2016 In Colors.

??????????     Stamps are all from the Bloom with Hope exclusive Hostess stamp set (available in wood or clear mount).  The flowers are colored with Daffodil Delight Blendabilities markers (#130998).  The designer paper is Flower Pot (#133698) with Lost Lagoon (#133679) card stock, one of the new 2014-2016 In Colors; Night of Navy (#100867) card stock; and Daffodil Delight (#119683) card stock.

??????????     I bet you can’t guess what I used to color these flowers?  Yes, Blendabilities markers!  Let me see if I can remember what colors I used: Old Olive (#130999) for the leaves, Daffodil Delight (#130998), Pumpkin Pie (#130997), Wisteria Wonder (#131002), and Coastal Cabana (#131000).  The stamp is the large background stamp, Corner Garden (available in wood mount or clear mount).  The designer paper is Flower Pot (#133698) with Lost Lagoon (#133679) card stock for the card base.

I know you have probably already seen dozens of photos from the 2014 Stampin’ Up! Convention in Salt Lake City.  Convention was held last week, July 17th through July 19th.  There was so much to do and so much to see that it was impossible to be everywhere!  Here’s a photo of the crowds.
