Ahh, The Sweet Smell of New Rubbah...

I have been dreaming of this card since I saw this set in the upcoming Stampin' Up! Spring/ Summer Mini catalog. The beautiful set is called "Soft Summer". I love the Dogwood branch and I know I am going to be using this set many times! I stamped the blooms on kraft colored card stock using SU White craft ink. The leaves were also stamped with craft ink. (Martha Stewart, gasp!) The outline of the flower/branch was stamped with Chocolate Chip ink. After the ink dried I used my neglected Stampin Pastels chalks, and accented the Dogwood Blooms with soft pinks. I am so happy with the way my card turned out! I am supposed to be getting things packed up for my card making class at our local community center but I just HAD to play with my new stamps! I hope all of you are having a lovely day!

Beautiful card! I really like this set and the fact that it's good for the money because it's double-mounted (I'm gonna miss those values!)
