Thinking of You …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you are surviving the giant drop in temperature, dang it’s cold out!! That beef stew I’m cooking is going to be the perfect solution to warming you up.

Today I’ve pulled out a stamp set that I have not used yet …  the Accented Blooms stamp set. Sometimes I like to just relax and color, and this stamp set allows me to do just that.  The nice part is, you can color the flowers to coordinate with the season …

I used the Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends duos. I also used the Color Lifter … that little tool works awesome put pull some color off like I did in the large flower.  One of the benefits of using the Stampin’ Blends is that I could tone down the brightness of the Daffodil Delight by blending with a touch of the Soft Suede.

Another tool I used while creating this card is the Stamparatus … I knew I would be making several of these cards so I wanted to ensure I got my greeting positioned properly each time.  You could however stamp the greeting and then punch it out with the coordinating punch and pop it up, that would also give you additional dimension.

I used the beautiful Country Lane Designer Series paper to back my project … it also drove the core colors of my flowers.  Who says you can’t mix -n- match items from the Annual Catalog with the Holiday Catalog!!  That’s what they are there for.

I also wanted to add a touch of dimension so I added a small bow onto the corner of my floral front.  You can find this twine on page 13 of the Holiday Catalog … it’s the Festive Farmhouse Cotton twine. I attached that little bow with a glue dot.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card share.

Thank you so much for taking time out of your weekend to visit …

Have an awesome day!
