Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Sending Smiles and Palms dies

Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia are participating. We have a wide array of fun projects and design styles to share with you! Our theme this month is “Sympathy”. These are probably the cards that we don’t like to make, but they are the ones that have the most impact for the people receiving them.
You may be starting your hop here, or you may have landed from Nancy Reynolds’ blog. Did you love her project?

I used the New Horizons DSP for the background of my card. This is my FAVOURITE DSP in the January – June 2022 mini catalogue and will be retiring soon. At the time of writing, it was still available (and discounted to $14), but I expect it will sell out soon, and once it is gone, it is gone. Be sure to put in your order ASAP if you want a pack. I also used the Sending Smiles bundle. Although the name seems incongruous for a sympathy card, it does have the “Comfort and Strength” sentiment which works. The palm trees are cut using the Palms dies. These are also in the retiring mini catalogue, but have carried over to the annual catalogue. If you want these dies with the coordinating stamp set, you can order the Paradise Palms bundle before the end of June to take advantage of the bundle discount.

Be sure to complete the hop to see all the wonderful ideas that we have to share with you. The next stop is Maureen Rauchfuss. I can’t wait to see what she has created this month.

  1. Oh WOW – thankyou for showing me the potential of the greeting in this stamp set – I totally overlooked it for sympathy but you are so right!! And I love the trees with the paper combo – just lovely.
