{A Day of Blessings}


 Good Afternoon friends and visitors! I hope that this St. Patricks Day has brought you lots of luck, and everything else good that life has to offer. Today's card features stamps from the A*Muse Studios Creative Consultant Kit stamp assortment that features stamps from several different stamp sets in the A*Muse Studios catalog. It is a great way to get started and be able to showcase cards in a variety of styles. For this card I used the Polka Dot background stamp from the "Polka Dot Patterns" stamp set and a floral sillouette stamp from the "Beautiful Botanicals" stamp set.  I stamped the dots in three different colors of ink, all of which came in my starter kit (I ordered the deluxe kit) lichen, fern and grass. Now one of the many things I have discovered from using these  pigment inks is that I can stamp on Georgia Pacific White card stock and still achieve a very nice stamped image because the card stock doesn't soak up the pigment ink like it does with the classic water based inks. Another money saver! Ok, back to the card, I stamped the floral image in french roast after I let the dots dry for about 10 seconds. Yeah, this is not your grandmothers pigment ink, it dries FAST! I stamped the sentiment from the set "Essential Sentiments", and  I finished off the card with machine stitching and a Making Memories button tied with SU linen thread. At first I thought that maybe I stamped too many dots, but after looking at it for awhile I think I like it!
