Hi all! I hope your weekend is off to a great start. Slowly, but surely, I'm getting my groove back. Since Gramma's funeral isn't until this coming Wednesday, I had a bit of a lull in between arrangements and my memory board & scrapbook projects for the wake. I received a package of new stamps & dies on Monday from the latest Wplus9 release and really wanted to play with them.
I usually have a plan when I head to my stamp room, but this time, I just played :) I started by stamping Mother's Day Bouquet in shades of pink & green in the background, then stamped Defining Words over the background with Crumb Cake ink. The sentiment, from Heartfelt Mix, was stamped on a banner that I die cut using the Banner Trio die. I can't tell you how happy I am to not hand trim the banner edge. It's a simple step, but it looks so much better die cut!!! I added just a simple leaf and button embellishment to finish off the card.
I'm really happy with the way the background stamping came out. I think I'm going to try it in a variety of colors and leave them without sentiments as a note card set. I'll let you know how they turn out.
My posting over the next week or so will be sporadic, bare with me. I know you understand.
And thanks to those that left me love in regards to my Gramma, it's much appreciated!
