With Sympathy

Two of my coworkers lost a family member this week, so it's been a rough couple of days. It's 2:00 am and I finally finished making their sympathy cards. I had no idea it was this late! Eek! So, hopefully this post will make sense!

I wanted to try out some of my new toys, so I used my new Baroque Motifs set and the new In Colors! The first one I did was the blue toned one. I really like these new colors! I haven't used my gold EP for ever, so I felt a little hesitant pulling it out. All in all, I think it turned out pretty good. I made a 'shadow' for the swirled area by stamping in white craft and then embossing with Iridescent Ice EP.

I wanted to use this same sketch for the second card (it is todays... well, yesterday's SCS sketch challenge - since it's almost morning) - but still change it up a little. I decided to paper pierce the swirls this time. It really didn't take as long as I thought it would and I really liked the results!

Paper: Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, Purely Pomegranite, River Rock, White & Vanilla
Stamps: Baroque Motifs, Floral BG (SU), Papertrey Ink's Paper Tray set

Ok.... gotta get SOME sleep tonight! I'll post more tomorrow.... I mean, later today!


  1. These are both so elegant. So sorry these cards are needed, but I'm sure they will be a comfort to the families they're going to.

  2. Hi Julie,
    These are beautiful sympathy cards and I am sure will bring lots of comfort to the 2 families. I do have a question for you. What is the music that is on your blog and who sings that inspiring song?

    Thanks! Pat

  3. These are really beautiful. I especially love the second one. Great sketch for this set isn't it?

  4. Awesome creations…love 'em!

  5. Oh so beautiful! I might have to reconsider this set. LorieR
