Hopping Around The World Blog Hop - Sympathy Cards

Hi crafters,

Welcome to another blog hop and this time it's the turn of the Hopping Around the World team.  We hop on the last weekend of every month and showcase creativity from around the globe using Stampin' Up! products.  Our theme this month is Sympathy Cards.  If you've come from Rebecca-Jo's post you are on the right track.  There is a full list of participants at the end of this post.

I have created a very clean and simple (CAS) design, with a monochromatic colour scheme, for the theme of sympathy.

I started by using Thick Whisper White cardstock to create a card blank.  I stamped the floral image from Beautiful Friendship using a sponge dauber and Smoky Slate ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the Touched My Heart host stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I used the Stamparatus to position my stamps as it is even more important with a CAS design to have the images aligned correctly.  

To keep hopping, head to Mo's post next.  I hope our blog hop has given you some inspiration for what is always a difficult project to create.  

Crafty hugs, Rachel x
