Good Friday morning to you. I’m so happy to present the Stamp-a-holic’s challenge 152 to you today. Doesn’t this picture remind you of warmth, love and happiness!
The colors I chose are Marina Mist and Melon Mambo with a hint of Certainly Celery. The stamp set is the Level 2 Hostess set, Fast & Fabulous. This is a 2-step stamp set and so much fun to work with. You end up with the look of watercoloring without the extra time. For information on how you can earn this great set, email me at email@example.com.
Now, on to the card. Firstly, I took the full 15 minutes for this one, (kept changing my mind about which embossing folder to use). After deciding on the Finial Press, the rest went together quite quickly. 2-step stamping will do that for you.
Melon Mambo Classic ink is quite bright, so I “stamped off” twice to get the lighter color for the flower petals. Stamping off means that you simply ink up your stamp and then stamp it onto a piece of scrap paper before stamping it on your cardstock. Easy!
I simply could not resist those Vanilla Rosettes that are in the Occasions Mini Catalogue and dyed them for this card. Check back on Saturday for instructions on how to do this.
