Fond Farewells

Hi Stampers! These next couple weeks I will focus on stamping ideas using some of my favorite sets that are retiring. Of course, I have to start with Heartfelt Thanks. This workhorse of a set has been the one I could always turn to when I wasn't feeling inspired. I feel this set should go in the stamp set Hall of Fame for it's versatility and usefulness!
I used today's sketch challenge 231 over at splitcoaststampers for my layout.
Tips to create this card:
  • stamp a 3x5 inch whisper white piece with the flower image repeatedly using ballet blue, bashful blue, and almost amethyst; use certainly celery to stamp some flower centers--then cut into 3/4"x5" strips
  • for the single flower image ink stamp with almost amethyst, then tip stamp and place an edge onto ballet blue pad, roll stamp around so that the blue gets just on the outside
  • StazOn jet black gives a crystal clear stamp so that is my choice for the black
  • sponging almost amethyst along the scallop accents the edge

    If you don't already own Heartfelt Thanks (114980, $32.95) and can possibly afford to buy it before it's gone, I highly recommend purchasing this set--you won't be disappointed. If you don't have a demonstrator, you can email me to place the order OR place your order online. Or have a workshop and earn this set for free!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by! Tasha

Don't forget the Last Chance Accessories are limited so I am updating the list each day.

Looks like lots of layering went on here, Tasha, and stamping. More than I usually do Why I'm not Stamping Lady! Lol. Beautiful and "from the heart", I can tell.
Cool cardin',
