I just got my new stamp set (like I need another one!) and have been playing around with it. I love this set. It is great for sympathy and get well cards. The flowers and trees would work well on any type of card. Here are a few of the cards I made.
SHARING IN SORROW
I colored directly on the flower stamp using Stampin' Write Markers. I then stamped it on Whisper White card stock that I cut out using the Sizzix Big Shot Top Note die cut. The butterfly was also cut out with the Big Shot. I tied a piece of hemp twine around the butterfly to give it a body and antennae. It's adhered to the card with a mini glue dot. I used the Watercolor Vine wheel, with the Versamarker pad, on the Kiwi Kiss layer to add a little texture to that layer. For the ribbon I punched twice with the horizontal slot punch and then tied the ribbon with more Hemp Twine. This card measures 5" x 5"

THINKING OF YOU
I was inspired by Christine's card which you can see here. If it weren't for all the wonderfully creative people out there I wouldn't be able to create half the cards I do!
This is a real simple card yet very elegant and soft. I stamped the tree in Whisper White Craft ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Then I sponged it with Mellow Moss. I stamped the sentiment and added ribbon. And its done!

PRAYING FOR YOU
Here is my creation! I stamped Whisper White craft ink on a Kraft card stock base. The folded side is punched with the slot punch to allow the ribbon through from the inside. The top is pierced in the corners to add a little interest. I heat embossed the sentiment to make it stand out more.
