STAMPlorations inspiration #210

Welcome to another Tuesday inspiration from the STAMPlorations inspiration team where we usually feature stamps from one of our talented stamp designers. We're switching it up a little since it's finally beginning to feel like Spring around here. Spring cards it is this month!

Our Spring Fling event is also happening over at the STAMP blog. All throughout April, products in the Spring Fling section of the store will be 25% off instantly. Which means... if you use my STAMPGIRLMARIA code, you can get up to 45% off!

Today I've actually used a Shery Russ Design, the latest Stamp Club set, Bloomful (which is unfortunately out of stock at the moment) because I'm finding myself in need of sympathy cards faster than I can make them. Ugh. I've actually got a twofer fer you.

Polychromo pencils

I made the one with the English sentiment and including the blue tones first. Used more of the lighter tone. For my second card I needed one with a German sentiment. I opted to use gray tones instead of the blues (sympathy cards here are usually still very sombre). I used the dark gray tone more. See the difference?

I prefer the blue one. And you?

Nothing tricky to my process, I'm just happy I have a MISTI ;)  I stamped the image and sentiment, colored the image and then stamped once more to sharpen the outlines.

For more inspiration with this fun set, check out this card.

You could win yourself a $10 GC to the store in our Spring Fling event. Check out today's post here. And thanks for coming by.

I'm joining the fun at:

Love that framed floral stamp and the colours you've chosen are so pretty. Sorry you're crafting for sad reasons, but this card should brighten someone's day nicely. Thanks for playing at AAA Cards, hope to see you joining in with future challenges too.

So sad to have reasons for sympathy cards, but yours are beautiful, Maria. The image is beautiful both ways. At first I thought, "why can't I read that sentiment?", until you said it was in German - ha!
