September Giveaway Starts Today... and Ombre Sympathy Trees

Hello and welcome!

Happy September and Happy Labor Day! I've had four glorious days off of work and finally caught up on projects that have been on hold all summer!

This sympathy card was a quick one using Hero Arts gray to black ombre ink pad. I stamped the (I can't find the stamp company name because I unmounted it from a wooden block?) trees stamp on Gina K Designs kraft card stock twice. I used a Copic multi-liner to connect the mountains in the background. Then I stamped Winnie & Walter's "with sympathy" sentiment from The Big, the Bold and Comfort set in Ranger archival black ink. Clean, simple, one layer and on kraft!


September giveaway includes: Studio Calico & Live, Love & Paper's gnomes and hedgehogs stamp set from the Penny Arcade Card Kit, foil sequins; 8" long acrylic block, and We R Memory Keepers/Lifestyle Crafts Nesting Pinking Ovals dies (6).

  4. This is such an elegant card, Kris. Thanks for sharing it at ATSM.

  5. Hi Kris ~ This CAS card is simply lovely. Black on Kraft cardstock always looks classy. The trees remind me of a set I have from Stampin' Up, which are so versatile. Hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend. ~HUGS~
