December Blog Hop of the North Carolina Demonstrators group


Thank you for stopping by my blog today and joining some other very talented Stampin Up Demonstrators as we hop our way out of December. I’m looking forward to 2019. There will be links to the other demonstrators below.

The project I am using today utilizes the new Flowing Fountain Stamp Set from the brand new 2019 Occasions catalog.

I began with Whisper White card stock for my base and the layered Basic Black, Gray Granite and then another Whisper White piece. The measurements are:

Basic Black 5 3/8″ X 4 1/8″

Gray Granite 5″ X 3 7/8″

Top piece of Whisper White is cut at 3 3/8″ X 4 3/8″



I created the sky and clouds by sponging over with a pattern I made with the scalloped shape oval thinlit die.


I even added a touch of yellow on the upper right hand corner for brighter shies to come.

I lightly colored in the fountain with pool party stampin write markers and the ivy with mossy meadow stampin write marker.


I think this would look great at this point to add the clear adhesive droplets however; I have used all mine and need to reorder. I also thought about coloring in the birds but decided that I did not want them to be the focal point of this card. I did use Dimensionals on the “With Sympathy”  because I wanted that to be the focal point.

As much as I dislike making sympathy cards because of the circumstances I do find myself needing them in my stash and this just looks elegant.

  1. Such a pretty card, Sue. I love how you created your own pattern for making the clouds, and your sponging and coloring are beautiful. Thanks for sharing!
