New Stamp Set...New Card


Another nice but cool day; another walk through the bush; and one last time cutting the grass! We may have some snow squalls tomorrow – yuck!



Today’s card was made using a new Stampin’ Up stamp set that I bought on an auction. It fits this challenge over at Simon Says.

First I stamped and embossed the flower stem and the sentiment in gold…the sentiment is part of the stamp set. The flower is one of those stamps that you stamp multiple times to get the shading…love them! This one did not come with a leaf I liked so I used a fancy scroll from another old set as leaves....love them and will use them again.The one I stamped first on the background didn’t turn out as well as I thought it should have. So, I re-stamped it on white cardstock and this time I really liked how it turned out so I cut it out and glued it on top….if anyone asks though I’m saying it was a design decision that I intended all along!!! Before gluing it to the card base I wrapped some gold twine around it. A simple but lovely card I think.



 That’s all for a cool Wednesday, November 8, 2017.

Cheers

Violet
