Stampin' Up! Tasteful Touches and Inspired Thoughts Sympathy Card

The Stampin' Up! Tasteful Touches Stamp Set features images with beautiful texture--they can be used to create soft and calming projects or bright and bold projects. The Stampin' Up! In Good Taste DSP is timeless, with beautiful layers and rich textures. The DSP sheets can be combined to make the perfect creation. Together with the Tasteful Touches Stamp Set, you can create feminine projects and the oh-so-elusive masculine projects.


I have a superstition about making sympathy cards until I need one, but I wanted to make a card with the Stampin' Up! Inspired Thoughts Stamp Set for my sentiment. The stamp set has many heartfelt sentiments for every occassion, so it is a must-have in the crafter's stash. It is designed specifically for card fronts and inside the card! Plus, the font style in this stamp set is clean and neutral, making it a complementary match to all of your favorite image stamps!

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Prepare Your Cardstock: cut/trim/score/burnish all cardstock as described above

  2. Stamp two flowers in Basic Gray ink on Basic White cardstock

  3. Color the flowers with both the light and dark Pale Papaya Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. I colored one darker than the other, but color them to your liking.

  4. Die cut the flowers

  5. Die cut the sentiment layer from Basic White

  6. Stamp the sentiment on the cut cardstock in Basic Gray ink

  7. Stamp the stem of leaves on the card front, one on the left side and one on the right side -- turn the stamp upside-down so the leaves are facing the bottom of the DSP; place the stem in the center portion of the DSP before stamping the image (the stems will be covered up by DSP later in the steps)

  8. Stamp the stem of leaves on the card front, one on the left side and one on the right side -- turn the stamp upside-down so the leaves are facing the bottom of the DSP; place the stem in the center portion of the DSP before stamping the image (the stems will be covered up by DSP later in the steps)

  9. Adhere Layer #2 DSP in the center of Layer #1 DSP, in the center covering up the stems, with the adhesive of your choice

  10. Adhere the layers to the front of the card base with the adhesive of your choice

  11. Adhere one flower directly to the DSP with a tape runner or liquid glue

  12. Adhere the second flower, slightly covering the first flower, with Stampin' Dimensionals

  13. Adhere the sentiment layer to the front of the card, to the left of the flowers

  14. Create a bow with the Linen Thread and adhere to the bottom right end of the sentiment layer with Mini Glue Dots

  15. Decorate the card Elegant Faceted Gems

  16. Stamp the bottom of the inside of the card, if desired, with a decorative stamp from the stamp set

Voilà! The card project is complete!

Meetup Group

Find all my events and classes in one place! Have you ever used Meetup? What is Meetup? Meetup is a service used to organize online groups that host in-person and virtual events for people with similar interests. My vision for this group is to gather crafters together -- online and/or in person (when possible) -- for a fun time creating projects, learning new techniques, and of course, meeting other likeminded crafters. This group is for anyone and everyone, no matter your skill level. This group is open to everyone, globally!


I schedule events for making cards, scrapbooking, gift packaging, and more. I also coordinate my card classes to go via Meetup.
