Just a Note to Say

Hi Crafty Friends,

Lately I seem to be drawn more and more to floral image stamps for some reason. When I saw these fun stamps from The Ton a few months ago I knew I had to add them to my stash. These are layering stamps and it comes in a three stamp set bundle A; B & C. When I ordered mine there was an option to only order A & B which I did, however I wish I had ordered C as well as I have seen some amazing cards using the background that goes with this set. But as that isn't an option anymore ... I will have to make do with what I have.

I have been waiting impatiently for these to arrive as the postal system seems to be on go slow lately, so once they arrived I had to have a quick play! I pulled out my Altenew Warm and Cozy ink cube set which is a set of 4 shades of orange inks and takes the guess work out of choosing the right colors for layering flowers like these. I need to get a few more sets of these ink cubes in the near future 😀.

I added a sentiment and some white rhinestones to finish off the card.

Of course I always like to decorate the inside of my card too, so I stamped the larger peonies on the left hand side of the card. The inside actually looks better as I hadn't conditioned my stamps when I started to play. I added another sentiment from the stamp set.

Stamps: Peony Notes A & B - The Ton
Paper: White; Green; Orange
Dies: Stitched Rectangles - Simon Says Stamp
Other: Black Ink; Firebrick; Autumn Blaze; Orange Cream; Sunkissed Altenew Inks ; Jelly Bean Green; Grass Green - Gina K Inks; White Rhinestones; Multi Medium Matte; Foam Tape
