Hello and Thank You!

Crafting always makes me happy.  It is a truly theraputic pastime.  For me, there is a simple pleasure in transforming quality ingredients into beautiful cards and projects.

Today's cards show off new stamp sets and some of the new In Colors.  The palette of new In Colors is gorgeous, and my favourite changes depending on which one I am using!  All the colours look fabulous with each other, and I love all the permutations I have tried so far.  The colour combination above is Lemon Lime Twist with Berry Burst.  The flower and sentiment are from the Pieces & Patterns stamp set... I am so pleased with this set!  I've also used the new Label Me Pretty stamp set and the coordinating Pretty Label punch.

While the inks were on my desk, I wanted to try them out with another stamp set.  The Happy Birthday Gorgeous set is just that - gorgeous!  I have used a pair of stamps for the flowers.  The pretty outline is stamped in Berry Burst whilst the coloured petals come from a second stamp using Powder Pink ink.  This is two step stamping!  You can achieve lots of different effects using this approach.  The one above uses two different colours of ink but you can also use lighter and darker shades of the same colour!  The little Lemon Lime Twist leaves are created using a leaf outline stamp which is then coloured using an aqua painter. 

On Saturday I'm looking forward to sharing some cards at my next class and to a thoroughly crafty weekend!  Happy times ahead.  Happy crafting,
