Cards conveying thoughts of sympathy can sometimes be the most difficult to create.  Sometimes just saying "with sympathy" doesn't seem like enough, so we've made the task easier with the thoughtful & eloquent sentiments included in one of our January stamp releases, entitled With Sympathy. 
………………………………………………………………………………………………….
Sympathy_card_2
………………………………………………………………………………………………….
I created the card above with a soothing monochromatic color scheme of ocean tides & white (you can click on it for a larger view).  It is a very simplistic card, with my emphasis being on the sentiment.  This phrase really spoke to my heart and really inspired the motivation to tackle a stamp set of this delicate nature.  The font combination is created in a classic style that should carry you through many years & changing trends.  One of my favorite details of this card is the silver star charm tied with ocean tides satin ribbon.  It is just a little something, but for this card, a little is just enough.
………………………………………………………………………………………………….
Loss_of_child In addition to the With Sympathy stamp set, there are also two mini sets being released in conjunction with it.  The first I am showcasing here is called "With Sympathy: Loss of Child".  At a price of $5 for three meaningful sentiments and the bitty footprints, it is worth it to order the set and have it on hand if the need arises.  This particular sentiment just pulls at my heartstrings.  And I know that any parent that has suffered a loss, whether it be a miscarriage, stillbirth or other tragedy, would appreciate the thoughtfulness of the words. The background of this card was created with a large ivy stamp that is found in the main With Sympathy set.  I love how the large image can be used as a accent for a corner or repeated to create an overall pattern.
………………………………………………………………………………………………….
Loss_of_pet The second mini set is entitled "With Sympathy: Loss of Pet".  This set came to be as a result of the numerous customer requests we had for something that filled a void in this area.  The $5 set includes three heartfelt sentiments and a small paw print.  I figure that price is about what you would pay for a card from Hallmark for such an occasion, without there being much of a selection.  But with these stamps in hand, you are better able to customize a card to the recipients style and needs, and make as many as you like for just a few pennies each.  On this particular card, I paired a image from Heart Prints with the set.  I think that choosing that type of accent really helps to communicate the *love" portion of the sentiment.
………………………………………………………………………………………………….
Besides the amazing sentiments included in the three sets, there are also several beautiful images.  The images are so versatile that they will pair well with not only the sympathy sentiments included, but also any other favorites that you may have in your stamp collection. I asked the design team to show you both ideas & inspiration for creating sympathy cards and how to use the same card design with an everyday sentiment, thus showing the versatility of the set.  I have created a pdf download with all of their projects for you to save or print as a future reference. 

Download pti_versatility_with_sympathy.pdf

You can also visit each individuals blog for a close-up presentation of their work.  I have showcased the actual sympathy cards below, but they will have the alternative sentiment options on their respective blogs.  Just click on each artist's name below…
………………………………………………………………………………………………….
Geny_sympathy_3 Geny Cassady used the same sentiment I chose for my Loss of Child card.  I love the way she incorporated the tiny footprints as a focal point and an accent by layering them underneath the vellum that the sentiment is stamped on.
………………………………………………………………………………………………….
Niki_sympathy Niki Estes created a very simple card that would be easy to replicate and switch out colors, depending on the time of year or the recipient's tastes.
………………………………………………………………………………………………….
Lisa_sympathy Lisa Johnson created a scrolling cut out with the large ivy image.  The detail she created with the coloring of the Copics is just amazing.
………………………………………………………………………………………………….
Dawn_sympathy Dawn McVey scattered butterflies around her sentiment and ivy, helping to create the scene for a very soothing feeling in one's heart.  I really like the way she accented the sentiment with the row of rhinestones.
………………………………………………………………………………………………….
Lauren_sympathy Lauren Meader used a bright & cheerful color scheme to help brighten someones day with her card.  A single butterfly is accented wit matted layers, helping to balance out the sentiment justified towards the left.
………………………………………………………………………………………………….
Heather_sympathy Heather Nichols created this stunning card using my favorite sentiment from the main With Sympathy set.  Her resist technique is so unique and has such a soft effect.
………………………………………………………………………………………………….
Becky_sympathy Becky Oehlers did some intricate cutting around a few key leaves of the ivy image.  The bright white & aqua mist look stunning together when paired with the black.  The cut-out butterflies help to add additional dimension.
………………………………………………………………………………………………….
Debbie_sympathy Debbie Olson created this striking black & cream color combination that I just love.  Her use of heat embossing the large vine image on the black cardstock creates a beautiful background for the heartwarming sentiment.
………………………………………………………………………………………………….
Melissa_sympathy Melissa Phillips used the stem & lavender stamp duo from the main With Sympathy set to create her focal point image.  I think that her color choices are so pretty and appropriate.
………………………………………………………………………………………………….
Preciouslifecard Betsy Veldman created another Loss of Child card using one of the other sentiments included in the set.  The vintage look paired with the color scheme make it a very memorable & special project.
………………………………………………………………………………………………….
Michelle_sympathy Michelle Wooderson used a clean & classic layout to frame out her chosen sentiment & ivy image.  She interspersed small rhinestone stars throughout the ivy, which lend themselves nicely to the meaning behind the sentiment.
………………………………………………………………………………………………….

    Nichole, thank you so much for coming up with such comprehensive options for sympathy cards. I wish I’d had these sets this past year, as I had two friends who had miscarriages and one friend who lost a pet. These phrases and images are wonderful, and it will be so good to know that I have the right thing to say when something sad happens to my loved ones.

    Alice Roushia says:

    These sets are fantastic. The DT did an excellent job on all of their cards. Each one is so warming that anyone who would receive one of these cards would really know someone cares and would help ease the loss of a loved one.

    I know, I got a few cards from friends with handwritten notes that really comforted me when my Mother passed away.

    Thanks for the chance to win these terrific sets. Alice

    I am thrilled to see this tonight. My mother recently passed away. I have not even started on the Thank you cards becuase I’ve been struggling with finding the perfect saying/layout. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the “perhaps they are not stars” set. It will go perfect for these thank you cards. Thank you for putting another one of my puzzle pieces together. I may now make another check in my things to do list.

    PS. My mother would have loved it!

    Susanne Brown says:

    I remember one sympathy card I received when my brother died during my first year of teaching. A note from a classmate of his with a brief sentiment and that handwritten memory. I read and re-read it many times as a testament to just what a good friend he was. Cards are one of the most important tools in the grieving process.

    Thanks to PTI for creating these unfortunately very necessary sets of stamps. A hand made card can convey a message of love and caring at a time when spoken words just never seem to be enough. A huge thanks goes to the DT for showing the potential these sets have – you’re all brilliant!

    Gigi says:

    The design team did a wonderful job creating beautiful and meaningful sympathy cards. I want to thank them for the inspiration and creativity they shared with your readers. Sympathy cards are probably the most difficult to create, but from my experience, are actually appreciated much more than store bought ones. I would love to win a set of your sympathy stamp sets, but even if I don’t, it’ll get ordered with the other new release items around January 15.

  • 141

  • 142
    Jen says:

    These sets are so lovely. I don’t know why but sending a note of love during a friend’s difficult time is such a stumbling block for me. Not because I don’t want to do it but because the right words just never come to mind. I alwats feel like such a bafoon when I try to be eloquent. Thank you for creating this set. And all of the amazing ideas on how the Design Team used them. I will be prepared now for my next Simpathy card. You ladies are THE BEST!!

  • 143

    Justine says:

    Words evade me at this moment. Dealing with loss is always difficult and painful. I am sure so many of us will be checking back at these cards at some point or another as we look for inspiration at a difficult time. I am especially moved by the set created for the loss of a child. I lost my son when he was 3 mos old and I have seen so many of my cyber friends loose pregnancies or infants, that this just really touches My Heart.
    Thank you………

  • 146

  • 148
    Kari D says:

    Thank you for creating the Sympathy for child and pet sets as well! So hard to know the right words any time you have to send a sympathy card, but especially so when the person loses their child (at whatever age) or their best friend (their pet). Such gorgeous cards that convey the love and heartfelt sympathy of the sender.

  • 157

    I can not you enough for this set. This is actually which is near to my heart. I actually donate cards to the Hospital where my oldest DD was taken. She passed to SIDS at the age of 2 1/2 mths in 2006. For me making cards and memeory boxes and donating them has been a therepy for me and it is really has been hard to find a stamp set that would get across what I wanted to say. I actually teared up because you have brought this and I can not tell you what it means. I thank you so so much and am overwhelmed. Thank you so much. ((HUGS))

    Wow – what beautiful samples. The sayings you have included in these sets really are meaningful. I actually started to cry when I read the first two samples you included as they really touched me and personal loss I have experienced.

    When i read your previous post saying this was a theme PTI has rarely touched on, i immediately thought it might be sympathy. This looks like a great set, and one that, unfortunately, i could really use in my collection. It’s hard to find a soft, appropriate set of images to use during those diificult times in life.
    Thanks to all the designers who put their hard work work into this and every set they do! And thanks, Nichole, for your thorough posts as well as the chance to win!

    I just KNEW that if any company could make a complete package for this difficult card making “niche”, it would be PTI! To have the loss of child and loss of pet add-ons is amazing…and something that was needed so badly in the market!

    To the team: Thanks for your wonderful ideas and showing how an “everyday” card can also be used for a “sympathy” card with a few small tweaks in color/sentiment. AMAZING job, girls! Thanks again and again!

    Oh my gosh, I am still teary-eyed typing this. I nearly lost it when I saw your Loss of Baby card. What a perfect quote and I am so happy that you dedicated a whole mini set for this. I had a miscarriage six years ago this very month and I know exactly how it feels. You got it, you really did! Thanks so much. 🙂 All the design team cards are amazing and beautiful, and I love the sentiments in these sets. The future quote is perfect for anyone having a bad day/week no matter the reason.

    Sympathy cards are often the hardest cards to make – but are the most appreciated by the recipient. I also *love* that you have added a small set for the loss of a child. As a parent that went through a still birth – nothing can be more devastating.

    These are the hardest cards in the world to make — you want to say just the right thing, but the right thing can be different for each person. This set is lovely and perfect, and I love the loss of a pet and loss of child additions. Those are priceless, and there is simply nothing out there for people who suffer these losses. Thank you, Nichole, and the entire design team for the lovely inspiration!

Thanks for the Design Teams work showing the many possibilities. You all are an inspiration!

    Thank you so much for these sympathy sets – I find sympathy and masculine cards the most difficult to create. I especially like the sympathy set for pets – I send so many cards to my friends who lose their furkids. Thank you, the PTI design team, for your wonderful work every month. I appreciate it!

    Luckily I haven’t needed a sympathy card often, but I thank you for such wonderful sentiments. The breakout sets for children and pets really fill a void not only in the stamping world, but in cards in general. I also love that you’ve used some of my favorite sentiments (I’ve loved the “perhaps” sentiment for years). Thank you.

  • 407
    Betz61 says:

    These sets are so amazing that I wish I had them years ago but really need the pet one now as my mother and I are headed off to the vets today and may have to put her 14 year old diabetic schnauzer down. I would love to be able to make and frame her this pet one when that day comes.

    Thank you, Design Team, for the beautiful samples. It’s so nice to have a go-to source when a loss happens, and that card needs to be made – especially if I’m affected by the loss, too, it’s hard to come up with the oomph to design something offhand.

  • 418

Thank you, Nichole, and the entire design team, for sharing your enormous talent with all of us.

    Aimee says:

    Nichole – this is such a wonderful gift to stampers. I think handmade sympathy cards are especially appreciated by the recipient. I am overwhelmed by your thoughtfulness, and especially touched by the inclusion of sentiments for pets and infants.

    I had to make two sympathy cards over the holidays, and I noticed that I make cards using a different process for these kinds of cards. Often, I am trying to make a beautiful impression, but with a sympathy I found myself trying to be respectful without trying to be “showy.” It was hard to come with a clever layout or design. Thanks so much to your designers for coming up with these wonderful samples that we can use when we need sympathy cards.

    I can’t say thank you enough!

    What a perfect set! I always struggle when I have to make a sympathy card. The hardest part is the writing, but these sentiments really do a great job getting the feelings on the card.
    And what a great idea to have your team do the cards both ways. I love how you think out of the box.

    I think set is done really wonderfully. The team has made wonderful cards with them and has given us ideas of what we can do to help ease someone else’s pain.

    I never really know what to say and have had need for these types of cards and it is agonizing to stand at a card store and try to find just the right phrase…. this will help so many of us.

    Thanks for your work on this set and the others that you have for us this month.

  • 428
    Caren says:

    All the cards are just beautiful. Each one shows a different style but portrays exactly what the sets meaning is, to tell the recipient that they are in their prayers. I think it is also great that you have designed one for pet lovers too! Can’t wait!!!

  • 429

    This set will be a welcome addition to my collection, and it has been some time since I have said that.

  • 437
    Elizabeth S. says:

    I would like to thank all of the design team for the beautiful creations. It is so much help to create a design for myself. No one would like to have to use a set like these but there is always at some point you need to and these would be a great addition to my stamp collection.

  • 438

    I’m always grateful for the beautiful and innovative samples I see each month produced by the design team, and this month is no exception. And to have these cards in a document that we can keep handy… so cool! Thank you all for your hard work and inspiration!

  • 447

    What a glorious set. Finally, someone gets it right. : ) I just want to say thanks for so thoughtfully creating this set. *And the coordinating add-ons/minis. . .awesome. One of my sons died in ’05 (he was 17 months old), and since then I really go out of my way to send sympathy cards etc. to those in need. These stamps will be the perfect addition to my stamping stash. Thank you for the beautiful examples and of course, for the set’s creation. : ) -Well done.

    These are really good sets, and something that truly fills a void.

    And more power to you for the Loss of a Child set. Very appropriate and caring sentiments, and trust me, I have seen a lot of these kinds of cards to be able to say yours are the nicest (and made me cry, but in a good way).

    –In loving memory of our 10 lost pregnancies.

    These stamps are just perfect for creating Sympathy cards that we can be proud of and at the same time that will be just what we need for expressing our sympathy. We have lost quite a few friends and members of our family in this last year and I always struggle over what card to create – and how to go about expressing my feelings – these stamps will make this process so much easier and also can help to create wonderful cards for other occassions as well – Thanks!!

  • 489

    Dear Ladies of the PTI Design Team – you all never cease to amaze me. Your sensitivity in these designs eminates in every word and image. The brilliance behind this set is indescribable. But I want you to know how much I appreciate all your hard work on these samples . . . I can only imagine the time it takes to create such beauty. But I also suspect that each of you has personal feelings involved as you create these wonderfully thoughtful cards. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for going to that place in your mind that it takes to create what you do. You are loved.

    Sympathy cards are the hardest to make. I especially appreciate the pet options. I lost two pets within the last couple of years and it was really special to receive cards at their loss. I felt the people who sent them really “got it” about the love between us and our furry friends. I want to be that sensitive to others. Thank you for the wonderful PDF for my files.

    Thank you for such a comprehensive set of sympathy stamps. It is so difficult to create an appropriate card for the loss of a child or a dear family pet. Your sympathy sets are breathtaking. Thank you for filling such a void in the stamping industry and for doing it with such grace. Congratulations on this release. It surpasses all my expectations.

    THANK YOU so much for creating these wonderful sets. While these aren’t the first cards that I’m looking forward in creating, they are VERY needed and appreciated when a loss occurs. The classic Papertrey Ink style shines through each card design as does each designers own unique (and beautiful) style.

    I love the idea of the mini set for the baby and pets. And, you were so smart to price them in such a way that we can purchase them just to have, almost with the hope that we never have to use them, but glad that we have them just in case!

    Michele F says:

    The cards by the design team are absolutely gorgeous. The sentiments are truly lovely and touch the heart. They are all very elegant and thoughtful for such a difficult occasion. I really liked the challenge twist of creating an everyday card with the same design. It shows the versatility of the sets and the design. Nice job everyone.

  • 527

    What a wonderful addition to any stamp collection. I could see myself making these in advance to have on hand – knowing that the occurrence of such an event might leave me creatively bereft. Thank you for filling this gap!

  • 528
    Sharron Gregory says:

    What beautiful examples of such a meaningful and much needed set. The DT created fantastic examples and having an alternate card with a different sentiment was a great addition. And thank you Nicole for adding loss of an infant or pet to your heartwarming sentiments–as always, wonderful job!

    I have to agree that this the most difficult type of cards to make. And this group of sets will certainly make the task a bit easier. Such gorgeous stamps and gorgeous samples!

    Elizabeth K. says:

    Sympathy cards are always the hardest to make, but unfortunately we all need them
    at some time. The verses in this set are
    just beautiful. Sometimes the right verse
    cannot be found–not the case with these
    sets! Thank you Nichole for a comforting set.

    This is an amazing set. I especially love the mini set for babies. Having lost a child once, I know how words can fail someone who want to offer their condolences. Your sympathy set is timeless and very beautiful.

    Sam says:

    I had to make a sympathy card just the other day and I was a bit disappointed with the “thinking of you” sentiment that I used as it really doesn’t say it does it!

    Love these alternative sentiments, I would certainly not be worried about sounding trite with them.

  • 541
    Sam says:

    I have just realised that I didn’t actually do what it said on the tin!!! So, I would like to say thank you to the exceedingly talented design team – I thought that all of the cards were beautiful.

    great ideas for sets – I love how affordable they are – even cheaper than buying a hallmark card which are costing $5-$6 these days (I notice the cost when others send me them – not that I do!!) Our border collie just died on Jan 1st so the pet sentiments are especially meaningful.

    thanks for the chance to win.

As always you inspire me Nichole (as well as the entire team) !

I might have to wait awhile before I can order again:( {{{double sad face}}}}. I can’t wait to play with my new stamp sets and to try out the kraft cardstock.

    Kathy says:

    Since the very first time I saw the sentiment about the “stars as openings in the sky ..” on a Hallmark card years ago, I have used it my cardmaking. I just love that sentiment. This is the version of this old Eskimo legend that I have used (slightly different from the version used in your set), “Perhaps they are not stars in the sky, but rather openings where our loved ones shine down to let us know they are happy.” 🙂

    These stamps are great. Sympathy cards are so hard to make, I usually go out and buy one, but with these sentiments making my own will be much easier.

    Bee says:

    Those sets are beautiful. I wish we never had the need for sympathy cards, but unfortunately it’s part of life and having the right words is important. I love that quote about the stars, it’s beautiful. And having suffered 3 miscarriages the baby loss set sure touches my heart.

  • 645
    Cheryl B. says:

    These are great sympathy sets. I have needed to make quite a few sympathy cards lately and only have one sympathy sentiment set. I definitely could have used the pet one last month when my SIL had to put her 13 year old Australian Shepherd to sleep.

    The DT did a great job with these sets!

    WOW, what a talented group! I am in awe of these beautiful sympathy cards. It use to be that when I needed a sympathy card I would always go to purchase one.

  • 652

    What a carefully thought out set and beautiful options. So much better than the standard ‘with sympathy’ and says just the right thing. My friend lost her 2 year old daughter two years ago and I was at such a loss for words…and the pet option is wonderful too because I know a few people who took it very hard. Thanks for agreat option. Although its never fun to send, the DT did some really beautiful cards.

    When I first heard it this was a sympathy set I did not think I would be interested in it at all but after seeing what the design team did with it and that it can be used for other things I am thinking it may end up in my cart now. Thanks for designing a sympathy set for pets too.

    Nichole–this set is so amazing. It is beautiful and classic, and so unique from what is out there on the market. My Mom asks me to make her sympathy cards a lot, so I am always on the look out for a great set. This is the best set I’ve seen! The add ons are awesome, thanks for always being so innovative! And thank you for that awesome pdf file, it is so helpful.

    Julie Rae says:

    Thank you everyone for such wonderful stamps and cards. It must have been heart-rendering just to make them as samples. I’m tearing up reading them! How important it is to give and receive handmade, from-the-heart sympathy cards at a time of loss. I am a crier, so cards are my best option for telling people how much I care. Thank you for making a tough task easier.

  • 659
    Lynne says:

    Thanks to the design team for their work on these supportive and compassionate cards. I struggle with sympathy cards and these sets are a welcome addition. I live in an active adult community and most of the residents are 20 years older than me. Sadly, funerals are a frequent occurance. Everyone has pets and I was also encouraged to see that you had a sentiment for the loss of a pet. I just lost my golden retriever of many years and would have loved to have received a card with this sentiment! Well, didn’t mean to go on that long, but again, THANKS!

  • 660
    CarolLynn says:

    Loydine says:

    The design team is amazing! The sympathy cards are beautiful. I can’t wait to get this sympathy stamp set (I never thought I would say that) because it seems I need these cards more frequently now (is it my age?). Thanks for sharing these beautiful cards and their alternatives!

    This is something I struggle with often – it’s great to see you guys really put some thought into how this set could and might need to be used. I know sometimes the right words just don’t seem to come to mind, but I can at least let them know I’m thinking of them with a heartfelt card.
    Thanks girls!

    Brooke says:

    I think that for people that always make and send homemade cards, the need to create a sympathy card for a loved one or friend that says what you feel is difficult.

    I must admit that in the past I have not sent a handmade card in times of grief because I felt the pressure to get it right too great.

    With these three sets I think you have it very well covered. I love how the DT creations are delicately beautiful and simple and would be a real tribute to such a great loss.

  • 678
    Connie Gregoire says:

    Elaine Allen says:

    Nichole –

    I’d like to thank you and the design team for such wonderful ideas and such appropriate sympathy stamps. It is always hard to know what to say and as much as I wanted to attempt making my own sympathy card, I never felt quite right about. After seeing these beautiful cards, I think I will attempt to make my own. So thank you all again for job well done.

    Pam from Chicagoland says:

    Nichole,
    These are beautiful. Sympathy cards are something I feel strongly about and always send when needed – they brought me much comfort in the loss of my mom – so I make sure I always send them and keep a lot on hand. These stamps will allow me to expand my collection (which I HOPE I don’t need to use).
    Hugs!

    Looks like you’ve done it again, Nichole. These sets certainly are on my list of must haves. I often struggle with the right words to write, thanks for including some great sentiments.
