Just Us Girls #461 - Word Week

It's time for our Word Week Challenge at Just Us Girls and Nancy has chosen a very challenging word - Sympathy.  We all need sympathy cards at some point, but they can be so difficult.

I would like to welcome our October Guest Designer - Linda Snodgrass!  Come on over to the JUGS blog to see lots of inspiration for creating Sympathy cards from Linda and the rest of the talented Design Team!

I used an old Gina K set - You are not Alone and colored the flowers and leaves with Distress markers directly on the stamp, huffed on the stamp to moisten the ink, then stamped onto some ivory cardstock.  Die cut the floral image with a circle die and layered onto some a die cut olive circle.  Stamped the background of the leaf image from Concord & 9th's Lace Leaf set with Brilliance Lilac ink, then stamped the sentiment from Gina K's Elegant Florals with Memento Espresso Truffle across the floral circle and the background.  Layered that panel onto some more olive cardstock and onto an ivory card base.

Come and share your sympathy cards with us and you could be chosen as our next Chic of the Week, which would then make you eligible at a chance to become our next Guest Designer!  Please limit your entries to 3.


  1. A beautiful, soft, delicate sympathy card, Sue. The sweet...

  2. Love the layout and soft colours. The placement of your sentiment is perfect.

  3. Lovely and soft, Sue. Beautiful sympathy card. Thanks for having me as your GD this month.

  4. I just had to come over to see how you created your gorgeous sympathy card. I love the blue you used, so soothing and calming and also how you created the leaf background. Hugs, Gwendolyn

  5. Love the dainty flowers and colors! Pretty watercoloring in the background as well! Lovely card!

  6. What a great idea to use that leaf as a background, Sue. I love the way you stamped the sentiment to tie it all together.
