Sympathy cards

Each year I give my father a selection of my cards to use for birthdays. Earlier this week while visiting  him he claimed I hadn't given him many sympathy cards.
So thought I better remedy that. I made a couple of cards using the same stamp set but with different backgrounds.Love and sympathy stamp set and Thoughts and Prayers are the two stamp sets that I have used.
This first card I used someof the new dsp in the new seasonal catalogue.

This card I used a aqua painter and just painted three colours to the cardstock. I have used Crumb cake, Pool Party and Wisteria Wonder. I saw this colour combination  on a card but it had been put on with a block.

New designer paper

I have had a chance to craft today and play with some of the new goodies that I received last week in a BIG brown box. The box contained new designer papers, new stamps, new punches and some Sale-a-bration products.
This is the first card that I made using new designer paper. I based this card on a design that I had seen Amy Koenders make. Have totally changed colours and used a current stamp set.
So then I decided to make another card same design but different designer paper but still from the same pack. And this time I used a stamp set that is in the current seasonal catalogue which ends in a few weeks time.
In the top card I used Early Expresso and Coastal Cabana, the bottom card I have used Early expresso and Bermuda Bay.

I have used Raspberry Ripple cardstock, Birthday basics dsp and several stamp sets: Simply Sketched, Create a cupcake and Bring on the cake.
