Create a stack of sympathy cards so they are ready when you need them. Use the stamparatus stamp positioner to line up each verse perfectly. It makes for quick stamping too. All products can be ordered at my online store by clicking Shop Now on the right side of my blog or clicking on the images below.

Wood Crate CASE

My Wood Crate stamp set and framelits were an immediate purchase when they first became available. I could envision lots of great designs. I have since viewed many samples from fellow demonstrators online.

I used the framelits in my blog hop post which you can see here. So my supplies were already on the stamp table when I came across a fabulous design from Rhonda’s blog which you can see here. I liked the contrast of dark ink against light colored cardstock. The tucked snippet of ribbon on top of a banner adds a nice detail.

I had a request to create sympathy cards so CASED Rhonda’s design and came up with this take on her design.

This was the last task for my day. I added the image to the blog post and set it to publish today.

But, when looking at the stamp set, I used this coordinating stamp first. It looked a little weird but figured that was the stamp that coordinated with the sympathy stamp, wishing the recipient to remember a life with fond memories.

The rainy night must have cleared my brain because I woke up thinking that the original stamp I used just did not work. There must be another sentiment that fits a sympathy card better. And there was and the sentiment has been replaced on my card.

The stamp set I used is Better Together which has lots of good coordinating sentiments. Just make sure you pick the right one when creating your next card! It is available in wood or clear mount blocks at my online store here.

Sometimes a sympathy card is needed

I am grateful to receive a sympathy card in a swap. This occasion is difficult to sit down and create when one is needed. I usually create several to have on hand so that I can just sign and send.

This card was created by Carolynn Lucas for our shoebox swap. It features the top selling and longest running stamp set Lovely as a Tree.

Here are the images for the stamps in the Lovely as a Tree stamp set. You can see why this set is still very popular!

Comment below with how long you have had Lovely as a Tree in your stash or if you are just acquiring this stamp set!

I borrow Lovely as a Tree from Mom’s collection. I can’t relay the copyright date on it since it is visiting my sister Tricia’s house right now. Mom said it was one of the first sets she bought and it still ranks high as a favorite set!
