Clarity Star Flower Sprey Stamp Sympathy Card

While we were away last week, I received some sad news that the wife of my dear cousin has passed away. The news was a shock, she was a lovely warm, kind and caring woman.  I think what hit me more was that she was my era.  The first of the Cousins to pass.  Although we didn't see each other often, I will miss her.

Anyway, I needed to get a sympathy card in the post and was not really feeling crafting to be honest, so I replicated a card I made a while back, which I felt would be suitable to send to a male.

In the background, I have used "Cornflower Blue" Ranger Archival Ink through the Clarity Stamps "Peacock Pattern" stencil, fading the colour out towards the top and the left hand side.

Using Versafine Clair "Medieval Blue" ink, I stamped the Clarity "Star Flower Sprey" stamp.  I used the same ink to stamp the small "With Sympathy" sentiment, which is part of the Simon Says Stamp "Tiny Words" stamp set.


  1. So sorry to hear that a family member of yours has passed away, and especially difficult when you were of an age. I had a similar thing happen several years ago with a cousin who died suddenly and it does hit you. This card is absolutely perfect Sam and the soft blue stencilled background goes beautifully. x
