JustRite Stampers - A Beautiful Story Sympathy Card

Hello! I am sorry for neglecting my blog the past few days!! I have been sooooo busy getting class kits ready for the past several days and getting ready for my trip to Topeka, Kansas. I was invited to be a VIP Guest at the 2010 Memory Expo!! While I am there I will be speaking, teaching classes, doing make-n-takes and demoing. I am very excited and best of all I will get to see my dear sweet friend Karen Taylor!! I am leaving in the morning and still need to pack--yikes! It will be a miracle if I can fit everything in my bags---LOL!!

For my blog post today I have a sympathy card to share with you using JustRite Stamps and Spellbinders™ die templates.It seems like I never have sympathy cards when I need them. Sympathy cards are something I don't really like to make but need. To start I stamped one of the images from the Thinking of You stamp set from JustRite Stampers with Rich Cocoa Ink onto white cardstock.Next I colored the image with Copic markers. Then I used the S4-112 Classic Ovals Small die #5 to cut/emboss an oval.After I created the diecut I inked the edges with Shabby Shutters Distress Ink.I also created two more diecuts to use for mats. I used the S4-251 Big Scalloped Ovals Large die # 5, S5-025 Labels Seventeen die # 6 from Spellbinders™. I added a few tiny pearls to the Labels Seventeen diecut.For a finishing touch I added some ribbon.
