Feather Sympathy


Sometimes the guys need a little love after they've lost someone. Or sometimes you need a way to show a kind-hearted woman that you are thinking of her after she's lost her husband, an avid outdoorsman.  Sometimes the right stamp set arrives that fits the bill perfectly...



I'm so very delighted to be guest designing for Fresh Squeezed Stamps for the month of November, along with the talented designers Chari Moss, Arielle Gordon and Lynn Put. Fresh Squeezed Stamps have four sets for this release, and you have a chance to win the daily featured set on the Fresh Squeezed Stamps Blog.

The second set from Fresh Squeezed Stamps that I got to work with is called Tickle My Fancy and is full of lush feather images in different styles, along with some great corresponding sentiments. I often am lacking in sympathy cards when someone looks through my ginormous stash, and decided to use the classic images for a masculine based sympathy card.


Please stop on over to the Fresh Squeezed Blog for more information about this super fun set and pop on by their Facebook Page and say hello to Fresh Squeezed Stamps on their Twitter Page too!

Simon Says Stamp Challenge is having a Sympathy Card Challenge, so I'm linking this up, yay!

  22. Oh my goodness, Karen! I love how you mixed the stamped feathers with the real ones. Absolutely fabulous!! This is such a striking card - and I think feathers are spiritual, so perfect for a sympathy card. Very nice. Thank you for the inspiration - I'm going to "borrow" this idea for my next sympathy card.

    Hugs!!
