Good Tuesday morning.This is Thanksgiving week and I am just so thankful: for family, for fiends, for a warm home, for grocery stores – you name it – lots. My heart is full. There is sadness too, for today is another sympathy card. AND it’s made with another of the new stamp sets in the Jan-April 2023 Mini Catalog. The bundle is Dainty Delight and it’s coordinating Dainty Delight Dies (don’t you love having the dies named the same as the stamp set? They belong together!) Anyway – I didn’t use the dies today, just the stamp set – and I took a photo of the stamp set but not the dies. :O)

Stampin' Up! Dainty Delight Sympathy

Just look at those fabulous fonts – I like the cursive mixed with the straight – and these are delicate too. And the flowers are sweet.

Stampin' Up! Dainty Delight Sympathy.1

I’ve used anew DSP called Dainty Flowers DSP- and yep – it coordinates with this stamp set. But guess what? It’s FREE with a $50 purchase beginning Jan 2023. Hate to wait until then to get these sweet items? Join my team and they can be available to order Dec 1. ! You may do that here.

One of the coordinating colors is Blushing Bride, so after cuting the strips I adhered them to Blushing Bride panel, wrapped the Metallic Woven Ribbon in Starry Sky around twice and tied a bow. On a Basic White scrap I stamped the border for the sentiment using Starry Sky ink and Lovely & Lasting stamp set.

I stamped the sentiment itself using the Peaceful Moments stamp set and Starry Sky ink. I then used the Lasting Label Punch to punch it out, put dimensionals on it and adhered it to the card front. I took the completed Blushing Bride panel, put dimensionals on it and attached it to the A2 card base , Mossy Meadow.

Stampin' Up! Dainty Delight Sympathy.2

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment in Starry Sky ink using the Inspired Thoughts stamp set. I then stamped this beautiful bouquet in Memento ink and colored it with Stampin’ Blends: Pale Papaya & Light Mossy Meadow. And the floral comes from… Dainty Delight stamp set, of course! This Basic White panel was added to a Blushing Bride piece then right into the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base. And the card was done.

Stampin' Up! Dainty Delight Sympathy.3

For the envelope I used the very delicate grass & flower stamp from Dainty Delight and stamped across the bottom of the envelope, using Mossy Meadow ink. The flap got more of the same Dainty Flowers DSP. Remember – it’s FREE come January šŸ˜€.
