Hello friends. Stippled Blossoms (SU!) is one of those stamp sets that was in the catalog for forever, and I always wanted it, but until it went on the retired list this year, I kept putting it off. Guess I got my hand twisted by SU!, but I'm glad I did get it, as it is a beautiful set! Took me a few practice tries to get the flower and leaves lined up (a 2 step stamp)...I've gotten so spoiled by clear stamps where it's a lot easier to line things up! But anyway, here's the card I came up with:
I used a Heidi Swapp background stamp with Smoky Slate ink for my background, and then fussy cut the roses and leaves that I stamped with Real Red (stamped off), Cherry Cobbler, Smoky Slate, and black inks. I finished with an embossed sentiment banner (PTI's Keep it Simple: Thinking of You), an enamel dot, a few rainstones, and some bakers twine. I think the part that took me the longest (after my lining up practice that is!) was the fussy cutting...otherwise it was a pretty simple card, and I think the red, black and white really makes it one of those impact cards!
Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do! :0)
