Sympathy cards with Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps

Hi Everybody,

Some of the products I have used have been provided to me from various companies I design for. Affiliate links may be used in the links provided below.

Unfortunately COVID 19 struck New Jersey hard and I needed  several sympathy cards. Such  disturbing times......
Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps has a nice selection of them, you can see them all HERE.

I made a background with alcohol inks. always amazing what you can create with them.
The sentiment you can find HERE. I stamped it on vellum. I also used a larger sentiment inside, but I forgot to photograph it. You can see it  HERE

This is the second card I made. Same stamps, just different background.

Here are the 20% off stamp sale categories and card techniques.
We also have a big sale on nurse, doctor and medical-stamps.

You can get $5.00 store credit once a week. Each month we will have several categories on sale for 20% OFF and a technique for that month. All you have to do is make a card with at least one stamp from the sales category and use the technique (in May its "do a fold") and 
Vicky will put $5.00 on your store account and leave you a comment that it is done. We can't wait to see your creative work!

Sadly, I need a few of these, as well. Mine are NOT as beautifully done as yours. Love the way the alcohol inks blend and swirl so well and create the appropriate background. The sentiments are ideal.

I am so sorry you lost some friends because of a pandemic. The situation we are in is already depressing, and the loss of close people is a huge blow. I feel sorry for you, Cornelia. Your cards are so perfect for the occasion. The colors and designs you created using AI are amazing. Stay healthy and safe, Cornelia

I'm so sorry that you needed this type of card, Cornelia, but you have created 2 beautiful examples. The alcohol ink has produced such an arty, contemporary look and the sentiment is just perfect.
Have a lovely weekend.

Da hast Du mal wieder ein, nein zwei wunderbare Karten gebastelt.
Der Anlass für solche Karten ist leider niemals schön.
Liebe Grüße

I'm sorry you needed these cards, Cornelia ... though I'm certain they and your thoughts inside will bring comfort to the bereaved ... they're subtle and stylish and beautifully understated. Hugs, Anita :)

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey.

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
