The Thoughts & Prayers stamp set can be used for more than just sympathy cards. Like any stamp set it’s all about the colours, layout and of course the sentiment you choose to use.
I originally made this card as one of my Convention swaps for 2009 but recently remade it for a Stamp-A-Stack class. Some of the ladies wanted Sympathy cards but not all and I thought the card was versatile enough to add whatever sentiment you wanted.
As you can see on this one I’ve stamped ‘Thanks So Much’ from the very useful set, Sincere Salutations. Some of ladies used ‘Thinking of You’ which is quite appropriate for a Sympathy card but could also be given or sent to someone you haven’t seen in a while. ‘Birthday Wishes’ was also heavily used.
When creating my Stamp-A-Stack cards, even though I usually keep the layout the same, I try to make sure you can alter the sentiment. After all who wants just Birthday cards all the time…..
My next Stamp-A-Stack class is being held on Tuesday 13th July at either 9:30am or 7:30pm. It is the second week of the school holidays and I don’t mind if you wish to come along and need to bring children as my 4 girls will all be here and love entertaining. Spaces are limited though so you will need to reserve your seat.
