Can't Help Myself

Well, the Stampin' Up! shipment arrived last week and I've been trying not to use all the new stuff until it's available for purchase. But, now that the sets are mounted they couldn't just go back in the box...

Today's card idea is inspired by the Wed. sketch challenge at splitcoaststampers SC223 and displays the many aspects of the new set Kind and Caring Thoughts.

  • the base layer of old olive is stamped repeatedly by the small flower inked up with versamark and adhered to the whisper white card
  • crushed curry cardstock (new In Color) sets off the Tall Tales designer series paper panel and the image panel
  • tucked between is a snippet of soft suede (another In Color) with the rest of the message stamped in craft white
  • the large flower was inked in yoyo yellow with summer sun marker colored onto the stamp on the lower petals. After stamping, I lightly applied more summer sun on the underside of the petals. For a little depth, I used the mellow moss to shadow under the flower and along one side of the old olive stem.

You can earn this stamp set free when you host a workshop in July. Email me for details!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! Tasha

Am thinking fall, looking at this floral creation, Tasha. Not that I'm wishing my life away, lol. Pleasingly put together.
Cool cardin',
