Amazing Year

With my first peek at the Annual catalog one of the things that caught my attention was the Amazing Year stamp set found on page 28.  I was drawn to the simple line art images and the wonderful sentiments and fonts.  For today’s card I wanted a soft feminine look using soft blue shades.  I decided to start with some designer paper so I pulled out the Design a Daydream Designer Series Paper (Host Exclusive) and layered that on a card base of Pool Party.

Color Combo

Next I added a piece of Basic White that has the “notebook paper” edge which was created with the Blossoming Happiness Dies and then texture was added by running the piece through the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder.  I used Stampin’ Write Markers to color directly on the red rubber of the gift stamp using Basic Gray for the package and ribbon and Pool Party and Pear Pizzazz for the flowers and stems.  Once the stamp was colored, I “huffed” (moistened the ink by breathing through my mouth on the stamp) and stamped it on a piece of Basic White.  The only thing left to do for the gift was color in the ribbon with Pool Party marker and fussy cut around the image before attaching it to the card front with some Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The sentiment was stamped with Basic Gray Ink on a label which was die-cut from Basic White card stock with a label die from the Pretty Pillowbox Dies.  The finishing touch was to add a few of the  Glossy Dots Assortments.
