B is for Bereavement.

 B is for bereavement, and I have had to make two such cards over the last couple of weeks.
Here are the two cards - both totally different styles.

This one has a mat of Blackberry Bliss card stock, then a mat of  Painted Blooms DSP on top of this.
Stamp set  used is Love and Sympathy- both flower and sentiment-
these were stamped in Blackberry Bliss and Wild Wasabi ink,
then cut using the Labels Collection Framelits
then stuck onto a larger Label die cut from the same set in Blackberry Bliss card stock.
A knot-less bow tied with Wild Wasabi seam binding ribbon makes a simple embellishment.

This second card is a page from the Adventure Bound Designer Series  Paper stack,
layered onto Wild Wasabi card stock themn onto a White base card.
A simple sentiment - from the Petite Pairs stampset is stamped then punched 
with the Large Oval punch, then glued onto a punched scallop oval.
A very CAS card, but I think it looks quite surreal and serene.


  1. Hi Kate - such a lovely cards, so apt for a bereavement. Beautiful sentiments.
