Playing With Color

SUThurs
 
 
Today I have a card that I created for the sheer fun of it! (As if all other card making isn't fun.) My card features the Stampin' Up! stamp sets Stippled Blossoms,  See Ya Later (A Sale-A-Bration set that will be available for FREE on Jan. 28th with a $50 purchase.) and Hardwood, a beautiful wood grain background stamp. I stamped the roses using Strawberry Slush, and Cherry Cobbler. The leaves were stamped using Pistachio Pudding and Gumball Green. I stamped the wood grain background using Crumb Cake that I double stamped. to give it a lighter appearance.
 
 Double stamping is stamping in ink, and stamping "off" on a scrap piece of paper, and without re-inking stamp again to achieve a lighter version of the color.
 
I finished off my card by adding machine stitching and enamel dot accents.
 
I am happy you stopped by, and I hope you have a wonderful day!

This is really pretty, Veronica. The Hardwood stamp is wonderful, as are the flowers, but what I'm most in love with is that sentiment. I can just picture that on a baby card. Really wonderful. Bev
