Comfort & Hope with Several Sneak Peeks

A sympathy or thinking about you card should be beautiful but doesn’t have to be complicated. It’s the thought and personal message in a handmade card that make it so special to the recipient. For the super-simple, layered card I am sharing today, I am featuring three new products from Stampin’ Up!’s 2020 Annual Catalog that look great together. How fun! Here’s my card:

Comfort & Hope, Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder, Forever Flourishing Dies, Stampin Up!, Brian King, sympathy cardTips, Tricks and Reminders

  • Three New Products.  My simple card features sneak peeks at three new items in Stampin’ Up!’s 2020 Annual Catalog – a stamp set, an embossing folder and a set of dies. It’s great fun to show you so much at once. πŸ™‚ The Comfort & Hope stamp set is available to demonstrators who met certain sales goals over the last six months – it’s a beautiful stamp set with lots of great “thinking of you” and “sympathy” sentiments. I chose the bold “Comfort and Hope” sentiment for my card. Here’s a look at this great, new stamp set:Comfort & Hope, Stampin Up!, 152509The Sahara Sand background on my card was embossed with an incredible, new 3D Embossing Folder in the new catalog. Here’s a look at the gorgeous texture created by the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder: Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder, Stampin Up! 153200The gorgeous cutout on my card is from the Forever Flourishing Dies, part of the new Forever Fern Bundle. What a gorgeous bundle! Here’s a look:Forever Fern Bundle, Stampin Up! 154094
  • Ornate Style. The sentiment on my card is cropped with one of the stitched dies in the Ornate Style Bundle. While this bundle (and the Ornate Thanks Bundle) are ALSO new in Stampin’ Up!’s 2020 Annual Catalog, they’ve been early-released – so you can buy them now!

  • Going Green. I mixed three colors with green tones on today’s card. I was inspired to go “all green” by the new Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper that coordinates with the Forever Fern Bundle but added my own twist. How gorgeous is this combination?! If you like this mix of Pretty Peacock, Old Olive and Mossy Meadow as much as I do, please save this for future reference: Stampin Up! Color Inspiration - Pretty Peacock, Old Olive, Mossy Meadow
