Close as a Memory - Sympathy

Another set closer to using all of my retired Stampin' Up! sets:) A LOT to go!

This card uses all four stamps from the set called "Close as a Memory. I inked up the flowers and stems with markers. I love the stamps like this that have "shading" built in so they look watercolored with no effort. I stamped the sentiment over the stems and matted with Old Olive cardstock. I mounted the panel on pop dots. The background was embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder. The inside shows the other two stamps in the set.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Now, here's a set I'm familiar with even though I don't have it. This pretty and simple design makes an ideal sympathy card. Hmmmm... don't know when I'll get my next set done seeing as how I just printed up five digis I aim to color, plus a Power Poppy release to get ready for. Guess I'll never run out of stamping, will I?
