Handstamped Sympathy Card

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Making a handmade card is not always fun, but it can still be beautiful.  Our family lost a beautiful women who always shared her love for life.


She taught me how to dance with our turkey on thanksgiving morning before cooking him,  have ice cream for dinner instead of waiting for dessert, and the list goes on.  Thanks Aunt Bubs for touching our lives and our hearts.  We will have these wonderful memories forever.

This card was made using a rubber stamp from Inkadinkado.  I stamped the image twice (since I wanted a layered card) with memento black ink on plain white cardstock.  Then colored the image with Copic sketch markers.  Then I stamped “With Sympathy” onto the top of the colored image using the same black ink, cut, then used some pop dots to make the flower stems have dimension.  Next, I wrapped some white ribbon around the layered piece and added a bow.  For the final touch I added some diamond Stickles to the flowers for a little shimmer.

Make It A Great Day and Don’t Forget To Leave Time To Craft!

Cricut Card Idea For A Birthday Card That Will Make You Smile

My Godson’s birthday is this week and I need to make a handmade birthday card for him.  I wanted to use my Cricut Expression machine for this card.

After looking though all of my Cricut Cartridges, I decided to use my Gypsy and the download cartridge called Smiley Cards.  There is an image of a present that has the cutest smiley face, and I know that it will make Tyler smile when he opens up this card.


What I did to put some “bling” on this card was used some Stickles (cotton candy color) on the cheeks and mouth to give this smile a little shimmer.  I also used two rubber stamps.  One is from Inkadinkado with Tyler’s name and the other is the Happy Birthday rubber stamp from Hero Arts.  The ink that I used is Memento and the color is Paris Dusk (dark blue).

I just think that this cricut card idea turned out fantastic.  Making handmade greeting cards is the way to go!  Wishing Tyler a Very Happy Birthday.

Make it a Great Day and don’t forget to leave time to Craft!
