I was very fortunate to be able to purchase one of the de-stashing boxes that the amazing Laura Bassen had for sale a few weeks ago. For just the cost of shipping ($15), Laura packed the box with dozens of stamp sets, dies, and stencils.

I made this card with two of the items in the box -- Altenew's Cherished Memories (the sentiment) and Build A Flower - Carnation. I usually buy sympathy cards, but I decided to make a few to have on hand. I prefer keeping them as simple as possible and this fits the bill.

Colored with a few Copic markers and added some black dots as it seemed a bit empty. Now I need to buy some clear plastic protectors for my cards as too many of them are ending up damaged.

MOOD WHEN DONE: I'm good. Hope you have a great week!


  1. Its a perfect card, especially for a sympathy card. I too like to keep them simple.

  2. What a deal! And these were in the box? So beautiful! I think you made a perfect sympathy card.

  3. Gorgeous card!! It's funny, I talk about using my stash and not buying anything, but I, too, tried to buy one of the boxes from Laura. I wasn't as lucky as you though- they were all taken. So back to the stash for me! Have fun with your new goodies.

  4. lucky you to get those great stamps - and what a lovely card you made!!

  5. Such a pretty and delicate card with a wonderful design and a perfect sympathy card x.
