I was organizing my crafting supplies and rediscovered a stamp I had purchased last year and had yet to use. It’s the “My Best Friend” stamp by Simon Says Stamp and Clearly Besotted. I just love how easy it was to use. I was a little intimidated, but after I did a practice set of flowers, I was able to make this card in less than 30 minutes!
I usually prefer to make bright and colorful cards, but a subdued, neutral card has been rolling around in my head for a couple of weeks now so I decided to try it. I am very happy with the results. Although I am almost done with a bright card and will post soon.
I used Altenew inks to stamp the images. As you can see, they are warm gray colors. I used Evening Gray, Moon Rock and Lava Rock for the flowers and Mornign Frost and Evening Gray on the leaves. I used the sentiment from the stamp set and embossed it with Ranger Detail Gold embossing powder. I used the MFT Die-namic Inside Out Diaganol Stitched Rectangle dit to cut out the image, This is really becoming my favorite die. It finishes off the card without detracting from the images. I finished off with some Clear 4mm drops and 6mm sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
I am entering this card into the SSS Wednesday Challenge.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy your day!
