Positive Thoughts!

Hey all! Here are my first cards with new toys!! Despite trying to be good and not get it all, I had to get a few more from the Mini and SAB catties :)  This first one is something I completely overlooked until I saw a few cards online. Positive Thoughts, page 23 in the Mini. 

Super simple, basic stamping! Card base is Thick Very Vanilla. Accent layer of Mango Melody and background of Very Vanilla. I stamped the leaf image first in full strength Pear Pizzazz, then off once to the left and again to the right off once. Butterfly and saying in Basic Gray and flowers in Mango Melody. The Mango/Vanilla top layer are attached and mounted to the card base with Stampin' Dimensionals. The color possibilities here are endless! The saying too could be changed to any occasion.

Now, something I haven't yet mentioned. Want to step it up?? Stampin' Up! is bringing out some Coordination products February 4. Mostly dies and one set of Designer Series Paper to coordinate with some of the SAB and Mini Catalog items. Guess what, there is a set of dies to go with this set!! Nature's Thoughts. **I will post the details on these items in a separate post, likely tomorrow.*

Again inspired by something I saw online, here is the stepped up version of the above card. 

Same colors and basic layout. But I textured the background Very Vanilla with the Basket Weave Embossing folder and die cut the butterfly, leaf and flowers. This can be a bit tedious, but the end result is generally worth it!! Sure gives it a pop! The die cuts were attached with Stampin' Dimensionals. Wow, right?

Thanks for stopping by today! Hopefully I'll be back soon! Product details and shopping links below!

This is so cool, especially love the stepped up version. I can see why you took a second look at this stamp set. Great cards.
