Sweet Sunday Sympathy

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC228.

As you can tell from the title of my post, I needed a sympathy card recently. This is the one type of card that I don't make in advance or keep in my stash...it just seems like bad karma to me. Of course that means I'm scrambling whenever I need one, but I'm ok with that.


I chose the muted colour palette in the Fancy Pants Country Boutique paper pad and added my favourite sentiment from MFT's Clearly Sentimental about Sympathy.

I added some kraft and black card stock and used natural for the main circle. The corrugated cardboard heart with a whip cream button was a perfect accent to tie in the heart background paper.

I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your creation on Karen's blog. Now it's time to hop around and see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers created.

Sweet Sunday Sparkly Tree

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC227.

I used this week's sketch to create a fun, non-traditional Christmas card. This is #7 for Project Christmas 2014.


I've had this Mod Tree die from Simon Says Stamp for quite a while now so it was high time to use it.  I decided it was perfect for the stacking technique.

I cut out six of the trees then adhered them all together in order to create dimension. This works perfectly for intricate dies like this when you could never conceal the foam tape.

Isn't the dimension cool!

I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your creation on Karen's blog. Now it's time to hop around and see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers created.

Sweet Sunday Best Ever

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC226.
I used Birthday Sentiments from My Favorite Things to create today's card, but I'm not using it as a birthday card. Instead I'm using it for an anniversary card for friends of ours.

I used a neutral colour palette with a pop of colour from the flower accent.
I was able to add lots of dimension because this card was hand delivered, so I didn't need to worry about it being flattened in the mail.
I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your creation on Karen's blog. Now it's time to hop around and see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers created.
