Introducing Expressions Of Empathy and Corner Adorner: November

Good morning, friends, and welcome back for Day 5 of the Papertrey Ink November countdown! Today the team is featuring my new Expressions Of Empathy sentiment set and Corner Adorner: November mini.

When someone we love is battling a long-term illness or personal challenge, we need a message that goes a little deeper. Expressions Of Empathy is ideal for those unfortunate situations in which a simple "feel better soon" just won't do. I paired Expressions Of Empathy with my new Home To Roost set to create today's card.

I began by sponging a bit of Harvest Gold ink onto a white card front. I stamped the largest flare from Corner Adorner: November four times to create a round design and then added the Expressions Of Empathy greeting and branches from Floral Fantasy: Christmas. Next, I used a Nesting Frames: Rectangle to add the pierced detail to the layer and adhered the card front to an Aqua Mist card base.

Then, I stamped and die cut the birdhouse from Home To Roost. I paper pieced the body of the birdhouse and stamped the roof and base using the coordinating images. I stamped one bird on a full birdhouse and layered it with the paper pieced version. I stamped and die cut a second bird and adhered those pieces to the front of the card.

On the inside, I die cut a second layer of white cardstock and added the pierced frame using a Nesting Frame die. Then, I stamped the greeting from Expressions Of Empathy and birds from Home To Roost. Bringing a little bit of the outside in ties the whole card together.

Thank you so much for joining me today! Make sure to pop in on Betsy, Dawn, Heather, KellyLaurie, Melissa B, Melissa P, Michelle, and Stephanie to see even more of this month's release. Have a wonderful day!

Hi Lizzie! Beyond the sentiment staples (which are great), is the need for deeper expressions of care, so I was grateful for the new sentiment stamps you designed. Thank you. Love the new corner adorner and how you used it full circle. Thx so much for a WONDERFUL release!! :)

What a great idea for a sentiment set -- sometimes it's so hard to find words to show you care. They're just perfect.
