Blooming with Kindness part 2

Remember that I mentioned I was struggling with this set the other day?  These were a few pieces that I discarded when using that set!  I combined them in a different way…restamped the flower image and cut it with the Scallop Circles #2 die.  I like it better!



I took my colors from the Chevron Paper in the Comfort Cafe Designer Paper.  The base is Cajun Craze and I layered on Soft Suede that I ran the top 3/4 portion thru the Big Shot with the Fancy Fan Folder.  I added a flag cut piece of Comfort Cafe Designer Paper, then used the Scallop Border Punch along the bottom piece of Midnight Muse cardstock and layered it on the front.  I cut the Scallop Circle #2 die from Very Vanilla. 


I inked up the Blooming with Kindess floral image with Summer Starfruit ink, then used a sponge dauber and Cajun Craze ink to shade the middle and around the edges.  I used Soft Suede sponge dauber on the stem.  I think it gives the flower a lot of life without coloring it in…kind of a misty smudgy look.  Finally, I stamped the Thank You from Blooming with Kindness in Midnight Muse on the side of the flower.  The flower behind it really makes the greeting pop out, doesn't it?  And I love that the set comes with a lot of different greetings!  Hope you like version 2 of my Blooming with Kindness series!  lol!

I really like what you have done with this stamp.  I have just started my blog so still am pretty "green" with blogging.  I sure like yours a lot.  Hugs, Barbara

I like this one and I really liked the sample of it in the catalog. Nice having a simple stamp with so many sayings in it. Can't wait to see what you do w/ it next.
