With Sympathy, with designer paper by Stampin' Up

I use my Stampin' Up stash pretty much every day to celebrate birthdays, new arrivals, weddings, anniveraries, to say thank you or congratulations or good luck... well I think you get the idea with that! But as well as making cards for high days and holidays, it's important to offer support during sad times and that's what today's card is all about. Come and see:

I had a left-over snippet of the wonderful leafy design from the Motley Monsters designer paper pack and I thought those swirling leaves would work well with the trees from White Christmas. I added a touch of colour to the ground with a sponge dauber and filled in the trees with a Crumb Cake marker.

The sentiment is from the Love and Sympathy stamp set and I think it's beautiful both in what it says and in the way it looks.

I'll be linking this card up with the Snippet Playground where it's high time I joined in again - it's conker season for goodness sake!

I had this impassioned text from my daughter yesterday: "Maman? How does one Launderette?!" The thing is, I actually don't know as it's been, ahem, several years since I used one! I'm so impressed that she's making the effort actually; I thought all students just brought their washing home!

See you tomorrow with something bright and cheerful!


  1. Lovely Autum card Vicky I think this stamp set it so versatile...


  2. Wow, what a great idea using this dsp with the White Christmas stamp set. LOVE it!!!

  3. It's a beautiful card Vicky and I'm sure would bring comfort at a very difficult time. As for the launderette, I couldn't answer the question either. It's almost 20 years since I used one lol xxx

  4. Very nice card indeed. xxx

  5. Very well done, Vicky! Thank you for the inspiration x x

  6. Fabulous card Vicky and so good to see you in the Playground again! Make sure you pickle those conkers in vinegar - gives them extra bashing power :)



  7. Brilliant design idea's like that paper was made for the stamp!!!
    I can just hear the wind whipping those leaves into a spin :0)


I'd love to know what you think. Do leave me a comment - it always makes my day! Vicky x
