Cat Silhouette Sympathy Card

I’ve been in need of sympathy cards for friends and family members who have lost their cats lately. It’s so sad to lose loved ones. Pets have such a special place in our hearts.

So I started creating a few days ago and came up with a layout that is simple and sweet using a silhouette of a cat. I feel that using a black silhouette and refraining from using the more detailed cat stamp image is best for a sympathy card, because one can imagine their own cat within that shape. Plus I feel like the silhouette sort of symbolizes a feline friend that has passed on.

Rather than writing out all the details & directions for this card design, I shared that information in this Facebook Live broadcast. Then I uploaded the recorded version of this video to my YouTube channel (since I know not everyone is ON Facebook). Be sure to watch the video (you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog), check out the measurements and products list below (for the card I demonstrated), scroll through the close-up photos of all three versions of this card, and then let me know if you have any questions.

I hope you enjoyed this video! Here are the measurements you’ll need if you plan to recreate the card I demonstrated.

Measurements…

  • Whisper White Thick Cardstock
    • 8-1/2” x 5-1/2” scored at 4-1/4” and folded in half
  • Botanical Butterfly Designer Paper (FREE SAB pick)
    • 2-3/4” x 4”
  • Basic Black Cardstock
    • 2-7/8” x 4-1/8”
  • Calypso Coral Cardstock
    • 3” x 4-1/4” (includes punched pieces too)
  • Calypso Coral 1/8” Sheer Ribbon
    • 5-6” (maybe less?)

Here are close-up photos of the Calypso Coral card.

Garden Impressions Birthday Cards

I needed to make a bunch of Springtime birthday cards and realized I had a TON of this beautiful Garden Impressions 6×6 designer paper on hand. So I started cutting into it and came up with 3 designs that I’m excited to share with you today.

I made some colorful and festive birthday cards with the Garden Impressions designer paper, images from the Perennial Birthday stamp set, sequins, and some fun colors from the 2018-20 In Color collection. Click here for directions, more photos, measurments, and a complete list of Stampin’ Up!® products linked to where you can find them in my online store. #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

The designer paper includes colors from the 2018-20 In Color Collection, so I was able to match the ribbons on all three layouts.

Products I used… See below for a list of products I used linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Measurements…

  • Base Color Cardstock:
    • 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ and folded in half for the card base
  • Garden Impressions Designer Paper:
    • 3″ (or 2-1/2″ on the blue card to accommodate the larger tag) x 5-1/2″
    • 2-3/4″ x 1/2″
  • Whisper White Cardstock:
    • 2-3/4″ x 4-1/4″
  • Sparkle Glimmer Paper:
    • 5-1/2″ x 1/2″
    • 2-3/4″ x 1/2″
  • Ribbon:
    • 7″

Directions…

  • Adhere designer paper to glimmer paper using Glue Dots so that the glimmer paper shows just slightly. Then use SNAIL Adhesive to add the larger designer paper/glimmer paper combo to the front of the card and the smaller designer paper/glimmer paper combo to the 2-3/4″ x 4-1/4″ Whisper White Cardstock.
  • Attach the Whisper White layer to the inside of the card.
  • Stamp the sentiments: on the Whisper White layer inside and on the tag.
  • Insert the brad and add the tag to the front of the card using Dimensionals.
  • Tie a small bow and add it to the front of the card over the tag using a Glue Dot.
  • Then add sequins. (The Gingham Gala Sequins are adhesive-backed, but the Iridescent are not. So those would need to be added with Fine Tip Glue.)

I used the larger tag for this blue card, so I made the designer paper on the front a little narrower. I think this one is my favorite.

This was the first card I made, and then I got smart and used the adhesive backed sequins for most of my other cards. But I have to say that the colors in the Iridescent Sequins coordinate better with the paper.

Cards I’ve Been Gifted Recently

One of the things I love about being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is creating and giving cards to my friends, my family, my customers, and those in my Stampers With ART community. It’s fun to give a card in the hopes to brighten someone’s day! Right?

Today I’d like to share cards that I’VE been gifted recently from a few stampers in my group. These cards certainly brightened MY day when I got them. It’s fun to see lots of ideas at once, so I’m excited to share these beautiful creations with you in today’s post. The talented demonstrators that made these cards are named in the watermarks of each photo.

These cards all feature current products from either the 2018-19 Annual Catalog or the 2019 Occasions Catalog. There are also Sale-a-Bration products used in some of them. I wish I could give you a full supply list for each card, but that would be time-consuming and difficult since I didn’t make them. So instead I’ll just mention a couple featured items in each.

Verla Carpenter used the Postcard Pals Stamp Set, the soon-to-retire Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock (love that color!), and the Gingham Gala Designer Paper to make this super cute thank you card.

She sent me another card, too! This one is a fun shaker card. The sequins shake between two layers of tulle! Crazy, right?! She got the idea from Jennifer McGuire. Her card features the Hello Cupcake Stamp Set, the Iridescent Sequin Assortment, and the yummy Grapefruit Grove Cardstock.

Nancy Forsberg and Kayla Cory from Stampinbae.com sent me this fun triple panel fold card featuring the Flowering Desert Stamp Set. They demonstrated making this card on their February 15, 2019 Facebook Live. It folds flat to 4″ x 5-1/2″ to fit into a regular size envelope.

Three other versions! – Painted Seasons

I have three cards that I’m sharing today – all made with the Painted Seasons Bundle (Painted Seasons Stamp Set and Designer Paper) and the coordinating Four Seasons Framelits dies. But first I want to bring you back to the Painted Seasons Strip Fold Card that I shared with you on my February 16th blog post. Click Here to see that post. 

After I shared that pretty “springtime” fun fold card,…

Click here to see my vertical strip fold card that I made with the Painted Seasons bundle, one of our 2019 second-release level 2 Sale-a-Bration free picks. You’ll also be able to access measurements, directions, other photos, and links to the products I used! #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I kept on going and making other versions (hahaha…does that surprise you?) using that same collection of coordinating products. And now I have 3 more versions to show you today! Yay!

For this “summer” version, I stamped the flower with Poppy Parade Ink and then colored the center with an Early Espresso marker and the petals with a Petal Pink marker to try to duplicate the look of the flower in the designer paper.

The inside sentiment is stamped with Early Espresso ink. I first stamped the bottom image with full color ink. Then I linked up the top portion of the word, stamped it onto scrap paper, and then stamped it on my cardstock to get a lighter shade of that color.

Product List

 

For this “fall” version, I stamped the large leaf image using Pumpkin Pie ink. Then I used the Early Espresso Marker to draw in the brown lines down the center. For the smaller leaf I tipped the stamp and inked up half of it with Lemon Lime Twist ink. Then I tipped the stamp the other direction and inked up that side with Call Me Clover ink.

For this “winter” version, I stamped the pinecones with Early Espresso Ink and then used a Blender Pen to blend the brown ink and color the image in a bit.

Stamp Set for Lucky

I don’t think I’ve ever purchased a stamp set with cat or dog images until this 2019 Occasions catalog. Look at these great stamp sets: Nine Lives and Happy Tails! Of course I HAD to get both of them!

Happy Tails & Nine Lives stamp sets & their coordinating punches! #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I love them because they coordinate with punches – one of which I’ve had since it debuted with a Halloween set on page 53 in the 2017 Holiday Catalog. (Thank you Michael Funk for having links to past catalogs on your website!).

These new sets have sentiments and images that cross over and work with each other, AND the cat one can be stamped to look like our new family member, Lucky who (as some of you already know) came into our lives almost 5 months ago. We were JUST going to foster this sweetie, but fell in love in less than 24 hours.

The new Happy Tails and Nine Lives Stamp Sets each have coordinating punches so you can stamp a variety of cats and dogs and cut them out with ease. I love how there are images in each set that can work with either dogs or cats, too. I can stamp an image that looks like our sweet kitty, Lucky. #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

So I started by stamping the cat in a variety of color combinations. My boys decided that the Crumb Cake outline and “stamped off” Crushed Curry patches of fur resembled Lucky the best. Here is the card I came up with.

The new Happy Tails and Nine Lives Stamp Sets each have coordinating punches so you can stamp a variety of cats and dogs and cut them out with ease. I love how there are images in each set that can work with either dogs or cats, too. I had to have them all! #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Measurements…

  • Crumb Cake Cardstock:
    • 11″ x 4-1/4″ scored at 5-1/2″ and folded in half for the card base
    • Scrap for stamping and punching the sentiment piece
  • Whisper White Cardstock:
    • 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″
    • Scrap for stamping and punching the cat image
  • Early Espresso Cardstock:
    • 2-1/4″ x 4-1/4″
  • Whisper White Flax Ribbon:
    • Two pieces that are 4-1/4″ long
  • Gold Cord:
    • about 4″

 

PRODUCTS I USED:  See below for a full list of supplies linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Directions…

  • Stamp paw prints on the Whisper White 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″ piece (for the inside of the card) and the card base with Crumb Cake ink. Then emboss the card base with the Subtle embossing folder.
  • Stamp the cat: the outline in Crumb Cake ink, the patches in “stamped off” Crushed Curry. Punch out the cat and set aside.
  • Stamp the sentiment with Crumb Cake ink, punch out with the Classic Label punch so sentiment is right-justified, and set aside.
  • Disassemble Gold Cord to get strands of curly gold thread.
  • Attach edges of Early Espresso Cardstock to Flax Ribbon. Attach two loops of gold thread peeking out the top right and two loops peeking out the bottom left.
  • Then attach the cat with Dimensionals and the punched sentiment with SNAIL. Trim off the excess from the punched sentiment piece.
  • Add this whole layer to the card front using Tear & Tape Adhesive.
  • Add the Whisper White 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″ piece to the inside of the card.
  • Finally add a gold pearl to the left of the sentiment.
