It's time for the big news!

Do you ever need a card that isn't really sympathy, but it's not get well either? I often, more often that I like, need cards for the caregivers of seriously ill people. I know a mom who has a terrible cancer, not likely to get better. We have the RAK cards we do, where we just want the recipient, who we may not even know, to know that they are loved. I have friends who extend themselves so much I fear they will wear out totally. I have a hard time knowing just what to say. I usually have made them a nice blank card, with a flower or something like that, then written my own message. But I felt like there should be stamps that fit these topics better.



I talked to my mom, who purchases a lot of store bought cards. She said it's really hard to find these cards in stores too. Then I searched the internet for stamps that said what I wanted. No luck.



It's no secret that I love Gina K Designs. Gina has this extra special way of making everyone feel like they are special. I'm SURE that I'm her favorite customer. Totally sure of it. I'm sure you are her favorite customer too, she's like that. So I felt totally comfortable taking this idea to her. Making a stamp set that is for offering peace, comfort and support. Gina got back to me within an hour and we were on the phone dreaming up what such a set would include. She asked me to write a bunch of sentiments that I thought should go in the set.



I wrote a pile of them. My favorite idea was a broken sentiment that started with "In this difficult time..." then you could choose any of a handful of completing phrases. Gina used my ideas. Then she added beautiful flowers and worked out the font and editing. The end result is the set Comfort and Peace. I'm thrilled. Really honored, and excited to see this on the market. I think it's unique and needed.



Here are some cards I made using the set.

















I also really wanted to let you all know that I was very serious working on these phrases. I thought a lot about how people would feel when they needed these cards. It was hard for my heart. I realize though that if we didn't extend ourselves in love we would never need these cards. And that's the magic of this whole thing. We do have pain and heartache, but the love we have is always worth that pain. I hope this is true for all of you, and I hope that love brings YOU peace and comfort when you find you have to pull this set out and make these cards.




Working on this project with Gina was fun. Really fun. I got to talk to the famous Gina K on the phone several times, which is always a pleasure. I got to see my ideas turn into stamps. I did have a big secret for a few months, which was so fun it was almost painful.


If I could, *and I guess I can, it's my blog* I'd dedicate my efforts on this set to Jill, whose trials right now break my heart.
ETA: The set will be included in the release that will be on the 20th. Thank you so much Donna for reminding me of this very important detail! Hugs,e
ETA AGAIN!: I TOTALLY forgot this. You can WIN this set. I have one with your name on it. Just post here and I'll pick a winner. No hard game or anything, just post and I'll draw a name. :)
ETA yet again: I will draw a winner sometime on Sunday. After church for me, which ends at 2, then I come home and get my tots down for a nap and all... So sometime on Sunday afternoon. I will try to contact the winner through their blog or email, but if there is no email I'll only be able to post it here. :) Oh and if you win it, but then also get it as your 1 free with 3, just pass it along to a stamping friend. Or have two, if that suits your fancy.

I cannot find them at all on Gina's site that you bookmarked. Which section please?

Kim H. said...

WOW these are great stamps, Erin! I am so lucky I am 30 minutes from Gina K! So, I have been able to go hang out with Gina a couple of times! She is the BEST!

Tabitha said...

Erin,

What a special experience you have had! Also I love the cards you have made!

So glad there is now a set for those cards that are so hard to make, but so greatly needed by the recipient! Hope that makes sense....

Anyways, so exciting you go to work and talk with the Gina K!!!

Cat said...

SOOO sweet of you to give away a stamp set. i, too, struggle with finding the right sentiments so this set would certainly fit my needs!

i meant to post that i LOVE your new banner too :)

Clandy said...

What a great idea for a stamp set. I know I have tried to find cards for my brother-in-law who has a brain tumor. There really is very little out there for situations like this. So I am sure there will be a strong response to this set! The cards you made are really nice too! TFS.

Annelies said...

These stamps are great! Especially 'I am here for you' says it all and must give the person who receives it extra strength.
Greetings from Belgium, Annelies

What a wonderful set you have helped create , it's awesome and you have made some great cards with it !

Maureen said...

You are so right that there was a need for this type of set and there wasn't one out there. I've never liked making these types of card because I just never had the really appropriate stamps and I don't always know what messages to hand write.

Thank you for putting the idea out and working so hard on it - the sentiments and the set as a whole are perfect.

Lighthousegirl said...

You are so right - sometime people we know and love find themselves in these sorts of situations. These sentiments are lovely and really hit the mark.

Thank you

Denise said...

What a great idea. I always use the computer for situations like this but using stamps makes it so much easier to place the sentiment you want. Congratulations!

molly said...

I think this is a wonderful set...great idea....I think it will be a fabulous addition to my(everyones) stamp collection....thanks

Susan said...

No doubt these stamps have been long awaited for. I have had to print out my words and cut and paste to the card without the use of stamps so this is perfect. Some of these very expressions I have been using.
I am so thankful you put together such a useful and from the heart set.
Thank you!

Mandy said...

Erin, I had to head over here after seeing you on GinaK's blog! Congrats, girlie! What a wonderful idea you had! ;)

JenMarie said...

Wow! Perfect sentiments!!!

Stampin Cats said...

Beautiful set. Love the cards.

Lynda K said...

Erin what a great idea! I was recently in need of just such cards. Gina K has a heart of gold and her stamps reflect that.

Cheryl said...

Erin, we are going through a rough spot in our lives right now and just by reading these beautiful sentiments that you created and seeing your cards, I feel better. I can just imagine what sending one to a person who is stuggling can mean to them. Thank you for your kindness.

Stephanie said...

This set is absolutely wonderful. You are so right about not having a set like this that express more than sympathy or well wishes, it really speaks from the heart! I guess I will have to find "3" to buy this month, which we know won't be hard over at Gina K!

Nicki said...

I saw this set on Gina's blog - I SOOOOO love this set. I wish you could purchase it alone! I hope I am lucky and get chosen; I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY want this set! Did I mention how much I love this set? : ) Great job!

Erin, how wonderful! (on so many levels..) How on earth did you keep it secret? I read your blog pretty regularly and you never even dropped a hint. Now that's restraint!
Congratulations on your acheivement -and on putting these difficult thoughts in to words for the rest of us.

This set certainly fills a huge void in the stamping sets that I own. Thank you for stepping forward with your ideas. Barb

Erin, thank you so much for your input in making this set - it's VERY needed in the industry and I also have found it very hard to find sentiments that are just right for these occasions. Well done!

This is a gorgeous stamp set! This is so needed, too! I can think of 4 people right off the top of my head that these sentiments are perfect for, where get well soon or with sympathy wouldn't really apply. Thank you so much!

Aunt T said...

Erin,

I have goose bumps just reading your post. I am so PROUD of you for pursuing your idea. You are right - Gina K is a special person - she has a special gift of making every customer feel that they are her ibe and only customer. I can't wait until Sunday night to place my next Gina K order so I can get my hands on this set!

I love every card you've created with this set. Super job.

Thanks for following your dream so that we can create some very special cards for our loved ones.

(It was nice talking to you too)!

Hugs,

This set is very nice and does in fact fill a void, as I have also struggled to create a card that communicates heartfelt expression for someone that is experiencing a difficult time. They are lovely, as is your card. Thanks! Teresa

Thanks for the opportunity! Michelle

Oh, Erin, you so totally rock! Having been the recipient of these type cards I know they are so very important. You came up with some amazing sentiments.

Congrats and thank you for doing this important work, Erin.

MezzoKat said...

I cannot tell you how much I love this idea! I, too, have made blank cards and hand-written my sentiments, but no matter how carefully I write, my penmanship is woefully inadequate. Now there are elegant stamps to express my feelings, and I can still add a note in my own hand.

Love this- unfortunately as I get older I'm having to make more cards that could use this sentiment.

EK, will this set become available for sale? I went to purchase it but the site states I must buy 3 other sets to get it free. You know me, after 12 years I do not need any more image stamps!
