Sneak Peak

Hello again! I decided to post twice today because I have a busy day tomorrow and may not have a chance to post. This is a sneak peak at a set that will be in the new catalog. It is a two-step stamping set called "Awash with Flowers". I think it is really pretty! It is called two step stamping because the outline is a separate stamp from the stamp that is used to color it in. To make this card, I cut two pieces with the Top Note die, one in Melon Mambo and one in Whisper White. I stamped the outlines of the flowers in Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo, So Saffron, and Old Olive classic inks. To fill in the images, I stamped off one time before stamping and used the same colors that I used for the outlines. Stamping off is when you stamp once onto scrap paper before stamping on your card. It gives a slightly lighter shade of the ink. I then layered the two Top Notes so that the Melon Mambo one was vertical and the whisper white was horizontal. (I think I saw somone on splitcoast use this layout, but don't remember who it was, sorry!) I then cut a piece off of the left side so that it would fit onto the So Saffron card base. I stamped "thinking of you" from the sentiment set called "Teeny, Tiny Wishes" in Rich Razzleberry. I added three So Saffron brads before adhering the Top Notes to the card base. What do you think of this new set? Isn't it so pretty?
Thanks for stopping back by!
