Delight in Life



I always like trying out new techniques. With this card I've used a few different stamps to make up the Mellow Moss background of the card. Using 'Delight in Life' stamp set, I've stamped in Always Artichoke & Mellow Moss using two of the stamps in this set. Then I've gone over the top with the Script BG stamp in Very Vanilla.

I've run the Barely Banana cardstock thru the Cuttlebug (swirl emboss). I've stamped flowers onto Vanilla cardstock and also mounted the large flower on top of the flowers to give it some depth. I've layered onto Perfect Plum and Elegant Eggplant cardstock. I think this set will always be a favourite of mine. Pity it was not in the new catty; would be a popular seller.

Some new products I've just got are Vanilla cardstock, which I've been using heaps and also the Mat Pack to do paper piercing. This would have to be one of my favourite things to jazz up cards. I just love it and I was so happy to see they made it a separate item in the new catty.

I've used CM oval cutters and stamped the sentiment using 'Warm Words'. Then finished of the card with some cream ribbon.
