I blended a couple DOX inks (Spiced Marmalade & Wild Honey) and then spritzed the Marching Leaves stencil and laid it over the blended background for a few minutes and then let dry. Next I added the Lattice Frame die to make a trellis for my flowers and leaves that are from the Bloomin' Bouquet stamp set. Used the little banner die that also came with this newest SOA box and embossed the sentiment from one of the previous SOA boxes (I believe it was the Lovely Notes Collection). Here's a closer up view:
Love, LOVE all the stamps, dies, and stencils in this latest box! I thought the last box was the best, but now I'm thinking it might be this set...
I also CASE'd Catherine for a couple quick birthday cards:
You can't get much more simple than these 2 cards and they are great for masculine birthdays and would also be perfect for thank you's and sympathy cards too. I just water colored 3 rectangles for each card (Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors) and then placed the die cut leaves over each rectangle and stamped the birthday greeting (PTI's Keep It Simple: Birthday). Easy peasy!!
Hubby's on vacation this week, so not sure how much stamping I'll get done this week...amazing how your time isn't your own when they're around, isn't it?!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!
