Today is a drizzly, gloomy day but this card has brightened my morning! I knew I wanted to make a card with this "two-step stamping" set, Awash with Flowers, but not do the two-step stamping! I just wanted to stamp the outline in Stazon Black ink and then color in. It's nice to have the option with this set! Two different looks!
I thought I would use some of the Sweet Pea Designer Paper #117161 in the Occasions Mini, so then pulled out some Pretty in Pink card stock to coordinate. But I also found a scrap of Whisper White, already embossed with the Stampin' Up! Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder #117335. Both scraps were rather narrow so I decided to make a 6"x3" card. I stamped the flower from "Awash with Flowers", colored in with Watercolor Crayons, and cut out with my Paper Snips scissors #103579. I added a little sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes #115370. I considered some other embellishments, but had to stop myself! The card looked fine being simple. Sometimes you have to know when to stop!
This stamp set, Awash with Flowers, is a new set that will be in the next Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog, but you have a chance to purchase it during April in either wood-mount or clear-mount. Be sure to get it this month or you will have to wait until July! Check out this Two-Step into Spring Promotion!
