Greetings! I hope this day finds all of my bloggy friends doing well. Before I proceed, I have to give a big thanks to all of you who left the kindest of comments on my "Personal Achievement" post. I almost (OK, I did) had to pull out a Kleenex. Thanks for all your kind words and your awesome support. What a wonderful group of people my fellow stampers are! Now, the card...
I'm coming in just under the wire again to play along with the Dynamic Duos color challenge. Cherry Cobbler? Possibly my favorite of all colors; I had to play! I combined it with Gumball Green, and my neutrals are Very Vanilla and Early Espresso.
The perfect sketch to compliment these colors is this week's Merry Monday sketch challenge. I chose the Watercolor Winter stamp set to fill up the large space.
That yummy background was achieved by using a new Stampin' Up product, Core'dinations Card Stock, along with the Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder. After running it through the Big Shot, I sanded it lightly with a sanding block to reveal the lighter core of the card stock.
The Watercolor Winter Stamp Set is a two step set. First, I stamped the outline with Early Espresso Ink. Then, I used markers to ink the second stamp with Cherry Cobbler and Gumball Green. The Stamp-A-Ma-Jig ensures perfect alignment.
