Black and White Sympathy Card using Touch My Heart Stamp Set

  • Stampin' Up! Touch My Heart Host Stamp Set
  • Sympathy card using Black and White and Textures
  • September Starter Kit Promotion
Today's card uses the Touched My Heart Host Stamp Set.  Its a simply Black and White card with lots of textures.  I used the Many Medallions to create a subtle Basic Black texture on top of the Basic Black card front, which you'll have to look closely to see, and the Wrapped in Textured Embossing Folder to create a subtle White element.  Vellum Cardstock and Gems completed this simple card.  Different sentiments from the Touched My Heart Stamp Set create cards for different uses. 

The basecard for this card is Basic Black Cardstock.  Then a layer of basic Black Many Medallions creates subtle textures.  On the right side, a piece of Whisper White is dry embossed using the Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folder.

Black and white and vellum Sympathy Card using Stamp Up Touch My Heart Stamp

The image layer is Whisper White Cardstock matted with Vellum Cardstock.  The images and Sentiment are from the Touched my Heart Host Stamp Set. 


Two Black and White greeting cards using Heart images

One tip:  With so many textures on the right side of the card, you'll want to only add Stampin' Dimensionals to the left hand side of the image layer, and use Gle of Seal on the right hand side.  Another tip:  I add glue and or Dimensionals behind the Whisper White are of the Vellum so that it wouldn't show through the Vellum Cardstock. 

For the Sympathy card, I colored Smaller Clear Epoxy Droplets with the Card Basic Black Stampin' Blends.  For the card with the "touch my heart" sentiment, I used three of the beautiful Gilded Gems.  If it were closer to Valentines day, I would have used some of the Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels or  Cherry Cobbler Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Flamingo Thank You card

  • Flamingo from Pop of Paradise
  • Bonus Month has begun!

Flamingo love

This is the first time I've used this stamp set -- actually both of these stamp sets.  Pop of Paradise set and the Grateful Bunch with the matching Blossom Bunch Punch.    I also used the Swirly Scribbles Thinlets, but it barely shows in the photo as it is white on white.  I was really pleased with how this turned out!

The flamingo was stamped with Melon Mambo and cut out by hand and popped up on dimensionals.  The flowers were also stamped with Melon Mambo and then punched out with the Blossom Bunch Punch.  I was so happy to see this flower set carried over from the Spring catalog.  I think it works really well with the Swirly Scribbles and Pop of Paradise set.  The "thank-you" banner was also cut by hand and popped up on Dimensionals. 


Stamps: Pop of Paradise (141581 (Clear)), Grateful Bunch (140691)
Ink: Melon Mambo, Archival Basic Black
Paper:  Whisper White, Thick Whisper White
Accessories and tools: Blossom Bunch Punch, Swirly Scribbles Thinlits, Rhinestone Basic Jewels (119246) Big Shot Die Cutting Machine, Standard cutting pads, New Big Shot Platform, Precison Base Plate, Die Brush and foam Pad
