Peony Sympathy – Stampin’ Up! Card


Hello there,

I broke out a brand new set of stamps today, Stampin’ Up’s You’ve Got This.  I wanted to show in today’s project how to layer images, light image in front of dark image.  The main image panel is one piece in this project, not any cut out images.

Sympathy cards are one card that I don’t stock pile.  I create my sympathy cards as I need them.  I like to have the person in mind while creating it.  There is just one problem with that, how do you keep the card stock dry?

I will show you step by step how to create this project in today’s tutorial.

You can find the complete supply list below for today’s project and also how to the get the complete tutorial for this project free or by purchase below.


On another  note . . . . . .

This card was created with a very heavy heart.  A friend and fellow stamper, Nancy Parks passed away suddenly this week.

Nancy and her daughter Kari come to my card classes here at my house often.  Watching mother and daughter laughing and enjoying each others company while creating was pure joy.

Nancy we will miss you. . . .

Please help me by keeping the Parks Family in your thoughts and prayers as they morn Nancy’s passing.

Until my next post. . . . . . .  .

Huge Hugs!
