Welcome to my blog today!
I have a fun card to share with you today. I had this stamp set, Thankful Life which is a Hostess Only Stamp set in the Occasions Catalog...and I have yet to stamp with it yet....
so I figured it was time to as they say, Ink It Up!
When I first opened the stamp set, I really wasn't sure which way the flowers and greenery went so I decided to just jump on it and I was very pleased with the results.
A few weeks back I focused on a Cut It Use It on our Designer Series Paper, so I dug into my Cut up DSP and used that as part of the background. The DSP I used was the specialty paper Pop of Pink in the current Annual Catalog....I love these foil fold polka dots..not sure if they really show up well on the picture, but I added a bit of gold ribbon to the end...to bring in the goldness.
Here's another one that I focused on using all the soon to be retiring In Colors, including Watermelon Wonder (which is also the card), Cucumber Crush, Delightful Dijon, Tip Top Taupe and Mint Macaroon...all on one card! :-)
On this card I also used the burlap ribbon. Where, you ask? Well, if you take scissors to one end of the burlap and cut off the edge, you can then pretty much peel away the pieces of burlap thus creating a type of linen thread. That's what I used to tie onto the card.
I hope you enjoyed these cards....also if you would like to have one of these stamp sets, the only way you can get one is by hosting a workshop of $150 or more or placing an order of $150 or more and using your hostess benefits to "purchase" one with your points.
Hoped you enjoyed the cards.....thanks for stopping by!
Have a SUper Stampin' Day!
