Thankfully, it is a sunny day outside today! The babies are actually out frolicking in the backyard :)
Today, I've got a very quick, simple card to show using one of the new sets from Serendipity! This is one that was in my box-o-goodies that TAC sent me with which to work on samples. This is a very large image... my card measures 5" x 4-1/4"! The stamp set is called
Natural HopeStamps: Natural Hope, A Blessing to Me (Level B Hostess set)
Other: Pop Dots, Cupcake Paper Posies, Giga & Mega Merchandise Tag Punches, Prima paper flowers, & misc. ribbon
This stamp set screams to be used for breast cancer cards... hence the pink ribbon embellishment. I stamped the 'my dear friend' sentiment twice without re-inking to give a shadow effect. I included the 'hope' sentiment on the inside, and edged the white panel as well.I used the rock-n-roll method to ink up the silhouette stamp, first covering it completely in Toile Pink and then rolling the edges in Belle Rose. I actually tapped even more Belle Rose inward on her face to highlight her cheeks more. I edged the main panel with Toile Pink and the DP with Burnt Umber. The whole matted panel is raised on Pop Dots for dimension.
What do you think?
