I love the new SU Seasonally Scattered stamp set available for ordering tomorrow. It’s great when you can use a set for more than one occasion. You may have seen the “MERRY” and “LOVE” images floating around on blogs these days. I decided to play around with the “Thanks” stamp since it is timeless and Thanksgiving will be upon us before we know it. It is a pretty big stamp so it fills a page nicely- you only need to decide how to embellish it a bit. I decided to just border it with the Needlepoint Embossing Folders (still on the Clearance Rack) and scatter a few punched and pearled Itty Bitty Accents flowers around the colorful image.
At the SU Convention this summer, we used a technique of inking up this stamp and then adding color with a sponge dauber. I used Crushed Curry all over the stamp and then daubed it with some Blackberry Bliss and Old Olive ink. I found the Blackberry Bliss ink worked well with the Rich Razzleberry cardstock. I think it was darker and did not blend in as much as the with the Crushed Curry. I guess I could have used Blackberry Bliss cardstock but I picked up the Rich Razzleberry that matched perfectly and that’s how it went…
The sun was shining brightly today- look how bright the Crushed Curry is -it looks like I enhanced it or something. But it just came out really bright even without a light turned on. Where is that sun when I really need it with dark colors?
It’s a Clean And Simple Card so I am sharing it with the gang over at Stampin’ Up Only Challenges # 104 who are asking for a CAS card this round.
