I've been wanting to make something with the March Stamp of the Month, Floral Happiness. I decided on a quick card to let my parents know that I miss them. This is what I came up with:
I used a Cuttlebug Folder for a quick embossed background and then did some base and shade stamping with the roses from this set. I inked the edges of everything with the black stamp pad from our Basic Pigment Mini Ink Pads Set and then added a little bling with some of the new Pink Glitter Gems. A few foam dots to add a little dimension and I was nearly finished except for the inside sentiment.
Cricut Cartridges, but not used for the sentiment (honestly I can't remember if it was Art Philosophy or Artiste, but it was lying on my work table so I seized the moment). It started it's life out white, but there's nothing I can't color with a sponge and a little ink Ü. A little more bling and I was done. I'll be honest at first I kept thinking it was lacking something, but then I slept on it and was pretty pleased with the outcome at second glance. This is a beautiful and versatile set. I look forward to sitting down and playing with it some more. The base and the shade component of this stamp set intimidated me at first, but they really were very easy to line up.
If you plan on joining me for the Hexagon & Back Again Workshop you can try this set out and see if you just might want one of your own.
