Sneak Peek ~ Kind & Caring Thoughts




Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #9 is up and running...and it's a beauty! I used Basic Black, Very Vanilla & Certainly Celery on my card. For a layout inspiration, I hopped on over to Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #22. For the focal image in the larger scalloped circle I stamped the flower in Certainly Celery once and then again without re-inking the second time...love this technique called "Stamping Off."



Stamps: Kind & Caring Thoughts
Paper: Certainly Celery, Basic Black, Very Vanilla CS, Candy Lane DSP, Sunshine Garden SSK
Ink: Basic Black, Certainly Celery
Other: Valet Ribbon Originals, Big Shot, Circle Scallop Die, Circle Scissor Plus, Stampin' Dimensionals
