Hello friends. I am still working on replenishing my supply of sympathy and thinking of you style cards. I decided to go in a bit different direction today with colorful, bright sympathy and sorry cards featuring the new Honey Bee Cosmos Stamp Set, coordinating dies, With Sympathy Stamp Set, and With Sympathy coordinating dies. A rainbow stenciled background with Distress Ink and the Simon Says Stamp Square Dance Stencil is the perfect backdrop for these colorful cards.

Watch the creation of these two colorful sympathy & sorry cards from start to finish below or click HERE to watch in HD:
Backgrounds from Bristol Smooth Cardstock were trimmed to 4" x 5 1/4" and stenciled with the Simon Says Stamp Square Dance Stencil using Barn Door, Carved Pumpkin, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, and Peacock Feathers Distress Inks. On one of the backgrounds I spritzed the background with water from a Distress Sprayer and the other I left it "as is".
Flowers from the Honey Bee Cosmos Stamp Set were stamped on smooth white cardstock using clear embossing ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder before being colored and watercolored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. The flowers were die cut with the coordinating dies and adhered to the center of each background as shown.
Greetings were die cut using the With Sympathy coordinating dies. The greeting was die cut from smooth white cardstock, the greeting shadow die cut from Bristol Smooth Cardstock and inked with Twisted Citron and Peacock Feathers Distress Inks. The sentiments were adhered with foam adhesive.
Additional sentiments from the With Sympathy Stamp Set were stamped on smooth white cardstock using Versafine Onyx Black Ink, trimmed into thin strips, and adhered with foam adhesive.
Each card was finished with a scattering of Nuvo Crystal Drops in Morning Dew.
