Bloomin' Hearts Sympathy


Thanks for popping in today. The Love Blossoms suite is all the rage for the Valentine season, but it can go beyond February 14th. The DSP stack includes many floral designs that will take you well in to spring.  

Today's project featuring this suite is a sympathy card.

I wanted to keep the colors more muted so went to my Neutrals and pulled out a piece of Sahara Sand and one of Whisper White.
  • Using a pattern from the Neutrals DSP stack and the Bloomin' Love thinlit, I cropped the heart. 
  • It's hard to see in the photo, but I lightly sponged the piece of Whisper White with Sahara Sand ink to soften the background. It looked too starck to me without it.
  • The flowers from the Bloomin' Love stamp set were inked with Sahara Sand and cropped with the thinlits that are included with the Bloomin' Heart thinlit.
  • I popped up the flowers with dimensionals and added a pearl on each 
  • Organza ribbon added just the right touch
  • The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny wishes
This die is so beautiful, it can stand on its own; there's no need for a lot of embellishing. I think it is perfect for a sympathy card, don't you?

Be sure to stop back tomorrow for another project using Bloomin' Love!

Make it a great day!



  1. Sue, I've always loved this color combo and it's perfect for the Bloomin' Heart. Beautiful. Great way to show the versatility of this tool!

  2. This is lovely. I would have never thought to use this a sympathy card, but it is beautiful and perfect.

    1. Thank you Cyndi. There are so many choices in the SU! pallette that would work beautifully with this design and sentiment. Thank you for visiting.
