One Layer Wonder

Hello friends!

Hope this post finds you well. We have less than 28 days of winter in the northern Hemisphere. It is FROZEN in my neck of the woods... That's precisely why I need to get inky with floral stamps. 😁

I recently go a hold of Penny Black new release Day Dream collection. Today's card was created with one of the floral stamps. 


I love this bold print and get inky the other night.

love is

After stamping the images, I decided to add small bits of other stamps to compliment this gorgeous image.  I was afraid that I may ruin my stamped floral image, but...I persisted. 😀

I stamped  Fresh Ferns in the background and loved how this turned out. The colors I used for the background are Tumble Glass, Antique Linen and Feathered Peacock.

I am listing all the new stamps that I will be featuring in the next few weeks. Some of them are close to sold out. Simon Says Stamp has a 19% off deal and be sure to use it to grab the limited stamps asap.

 I could not recommend Distress Resist Spray enough. It is GREAT for adding splatter! Since it dries clear, you can easily wipe the droplets off if you do not like the splatter... Something you might want to consider!?

 I jumped at the sales over Simon Says Stamp and got myself a few items (see following).
