I guess it was an omen!

Hi Everyone,

I made a couple of gorgeous flowers with the Blossom Petals Builder punch and decided to do his and hers get well cards with them using the sentiment from the Word Play stamp set. Well that was two days ago and today – I’m laid up in bed SICK!!!!
(I’ll have to keep the pink one for myself I think!)

Some gorgeous Stampin’ Glitter – Dazzling Diamonds really shines in the centres….

P1030602

The pink one is Stamped with Rose Red and Melon Mambo inks and the blue one is stamped with Pool Party and Island Indigo. The Build a Blossom stamp set that matches the punch is a two step stamp, and works brilliantly with light and dark colours of similar tones.

When I say two step – It means you have two stamps for each petal, the stamps are designed so that there is a base and an overlay. They are lined up one on top of the other using the Stamp-a-ma-Jig tool, using a light tone on the base and dark tone on the overlay. Well I hope this inspires you to give two step stamping a try, It’s a pretty simple design but I think that’s what makes it so eye catching.


I'll share these card at Make It Monday this week and hopefully not share my cold !
