I'm sure no one wants a dreary sympathy card, but I'm always hesitant to make one that is too fluffy! So this one concerned me, but off it goes!
Stamps: With Sympathy stamp/die duo (ODBD)...this is part of a recent release from OBDB.
I used Lavender Fields ink (MFT) for the stamp and the same color for the Sympathy die.
The background paper is very busy, isn't it? But, it looked so much like the teapot inspiration picture that I was just compelled to use it. Beau Jardin 6x6 by Penny Black
The flowers are die-cuts from Elizabeth Craft's Bunch of Flowers. The colors (flowers and leaves) are from MFT card stock: Lavender Fields, Razzleberry, Gumdrop Green, and Lemon Chiffon.

Stamps: Happy and Smile (SSS), Things With Wings (MFT)
I stamped the sun with Lemon Drop ink (MFT) and used a cloud template to ink the tops of the clouds with Tumbled Glass distress ink and a blending tool.
After I inserted a little segway card stock (Tropical Teal by MFT) between the sky and the flowers, I added the lower section (Gumdrop Green by MFT) with some die-cut grass.

Blessings to you and yours!

The dark card stock (Lavender Fields by MFT) may make it difficult for you to see the shadows....I hope not! The images have to be solid, not linear for this technique. You stamp first with white pigment ink and then stamp over the image with, hopefully the same color ink as the card stock..only there is a slight shift to the side or over the top of the image, creating a shadow.
I did not have one set of flowers and leaves that were solid, so I had to pick and choose from three different sets.
Something else I took from the demonstrator was to die-cut the word die three times and stack them...I don't think you can see the difference here, but IRL it definitely has more depth.
The close-ups may help you see the shadows more clearly.
Blessings to you and yours! Enjoy your weekend!

I used the Stitched Oval (MFT) to die-cut masking paper, attached the paper to white card stock and sprayed the background with my Copic Air Brush System. Then I laid the die down and dry embossed it using a soft rubber-like mat on the Big Shot (if you have any questions, please just check the MFT site linked above).
The stamps and dies for the cat are I Knead You (MFT). The sentiment is heat embossed and is on a small frame (Dainty Rectangular Frame by Creative Expressions).
See you tomorrow! God's blessings to you!

The stamp set that I used (after I re-did the card with white embossing powder) is Simply Scrumptious by Clearly Besotted.
Distress inks: Shabby Shutters, Old Paper, and Scattered Straw.

God's blessings to you!

The MFT example video showed the design team member using some products I don't have ... to accomplish her lovely ombre card. I improvised with sponging over a Tim Holtz flower stencil and the Praying for You die (SSS).
The only accessories are the sequins.
The MFT inks used for the ombre effect are Razzleberry, Ripe Raspberry, and Bubblegum.
Praying God's Blessings for all of you!

This is a simple, but fun card made with parts of MFT's Blueprints 26 (the balloon top and the words "Happy Birthday"). The papers are from MFT's Dots and Stripes Sorbet 6x6 pad; the color I used is Lemon Chiffon.
The scallops are from Stitched Scallop Edges (MFT) and some sequins and Wink of Stella were added (to "Happy") for sparkle! Pooh! Wink of Stella is never easy for me to photograph!
