SSC146 Awash Mambo

Finally, a card! So sorry for the long delay! Life sometimes just gets in the way of my stamping! And then you get out of practice and really struggle to get the creativity going. I even had trouble getting the scan cropped & sized to upload!

This is for the Stamping 411 Sketch of the week. Not the best card ever, but a start back on the creative path! Here is the sketch:



and here is what I did with it using the new Sneak Peak set, Awash with Flowers:

Card base is Melon Mambo. I stamped the large outline flower first in Melon Mambo around the edges, then followed up with the Craft White. A "Thank You" from Thank You kindly is stamped at the bottom. I had stamped it first too in Melon Mambo, and tried to do the shadow effect with the White over, but it pretty much landed right on top of the Mambo. Oh well!

In the center is a Crushed Curry layer that was edged at the top with the Eyelet Border punch. A Shimmery White layer was added and stamped with this fun new set. I did the bold image first in the center with Melon Mambo, then around the edges with Crushed Curry. I did the outline image over in Basic Black. A Melon Mambo ribbon around the bottom of the layer finishes it off.

Remember this set is available this month as a Sneak Peak from the upcoming Idea Book & Catalog as part of the 2-Step into Spring Promotion.

That does it for me today. Hope you are all having a fantabulous weekend!
