Crazy About You!

Crazy About You!

Today I am showcasing a Sympathy Card using Delightful Dijon and Elegant Eggplant. While these two colors would not be a go-to combination, I came across a set of napkins on my sister’s table and thought about the two colors together. Do you ever look at colors through Stampin’ Up’s! eyes? I do ALL the time.

img_2267-1I set out to make a quick and easy sympathy card for a colleague at work who recently lost her father.  Two stamp sets jumped out at me, Crazy About You and Better Together.

purplesympathyChristine’s Tips:

  • Start with the Delightful Dijon ink and stamp the leaf image across the bottom.
  • With the Elegant Eggplant, stamp across the bottom filling in between the Delightful Dijon leaves.
  • Add your sentiment in Elegant Eggplant ink.
  • Stamp the coordinating flowers and add pearls.

I think we ALL go through a creative slump at times when it comes to stamping.  Especially when family priorities take center stage.  One of the current du jour slogans going around is creative constipation.  I have had my preorder for a couple of weeks and the HORRORS, it has been sitting there feeling quite unloved.  Not even one newsletter has gone out to the folks who follow me.  Yikes!

Also, the weather has been terrific in these parts of Connecticut, so after a less than stellar winter, all I want to do is go outside and enjoy the sunshine and tend to the honeybees.

You're In My thoughtsDon’t you love it when you have an idea and it works perfectly?!  I do and this is the end result.  These Designer Series Papers are from two sets, the grid is from Moonlight, (retiring & on sale), the Stacked With Love is in the Occasions Catalog.

InsideDon’t forget to stamp the inside of your cards.  Recently, I have begun to do it for my Etsy Shop and I suddenly feel that I’ve completed the card.
