Hello! Today I’m sharing a congratulations card I made for a new team member using a couple of new stamp sets from the Occasions Catalogue – the Special Reason Stamp Set, along with the floral images from the Hostess set Thankful Life which I heat embossed and then sponged over with Daffodil Delight ink.
The Special Reason Stamp Set has coordinating framelits dies; these can be purchased as a bundle at a 10% saving.
The technique is triple time stamping which is not as hard as it looks!
I just adore these colours together: Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo for the flowers, and Wild Wasabi and Pear Pizzazz for the leaves.
Tip: Use sponge daubers to add shading to stamped images. Ink up with the lightest colour then daub on the darker colour to add depth.
The gorgeous petite font used in this stamp set is very versatile too; you can use the sentiments inside the card as well as on the card front.
I decided on a base of Sahara Sand to let the colours of the images shine. What do you think?
Thanks for stopping by my blog. If you’ve left me a comment, thank you! You’ve made my day.
