Social Stamping | Sympathy

Hello! Thank you for visiting my blog 🙂

Welcome to the first of our monthly Social Stamping blog hosts. Clicking here or on the banner above will take you to main host page where you can see all the blog posts for today’s theme.

While our weekly blog host themes were linked to COVID-19, the monthly Social Stamping blog hosts, which continue until later in the year, have themes centred around greetings and sentiments. This month’s theme is sympathy.

Most times we make a sympathy card because we need it rather than just because, so it is definitely a time when crafting can be therapeutic.

However, with my card, it was made for a customer for her business. Her logo has a watering can and flowers so the Grown with Love bundle was a perfect match! My sentiment came from the Simply Sketched stamp set – long retired but I just love these sentiments.

The floral arrangement is just one stamp so I used markers on the rubber stamp to get each of the elements the colours I wanted. Granny Apple Green and Old Olive for the leaves; Petal Pink, Flirty Flamingo and Melon Mambo for the flowers. The watering can and sentiment are stamped in Smoky Slate to coordinate with the card base. Flirty  Flamingo also features on the mat and ribbon.


The Subtle embossing folder adds a lovely element of texture to a plain white card layer. Pearls are just the right finishing touch as the flower centres.


There are lots of lovely cards to see as you visit the blogs hosted today. Inspiration for you if the need arises to make a sympathy card.

I’m last in line today so clicking next below will take you to back to the start where you can see my dear friend Kelly’s creation.

Thank you again for stopping by!

  2. What a gorgeous bunch of flowers in your watering can! Love the bright colours without being too big and the subtle background is always a winner.
    The stamps your greeting is from was a favourite of mine too… got me wondering if I need to go digging 🙂
