Beautiful Basket of Flowers!!!

Make Me Smile,

Happy Friday!!! Here in Illinois it has been a hot week and I have to say in order to keep my basket of flowers looking beautiful I have to water them every evening. So far, so good but I have more “inky fingers” than a green thumb so we shall see how long I can get them to last! 🙂

For this beauty, I started with a Peekaboo Peach card base and I splattered some Peekaboo Peach Ink onto it with an Aqua Painter just for a little texture. I stamped the greeting on the bottom in Dapper Denim from the Sitting Here Stamp Set! The Baker’s Twine I used is actually retired but I have made some since this sample using the new Gold Natural Trim! Perfect!!! For the Flower Basket, I stamped it from the Sitting Here Stamp Set in Basic Gray Archival Ink. I also stamped the line image below the basket in the same. That image is perfect for getting that shadow line so the basket doesn’t look like it is floating! I used the Basic Gray because I like the softer look for the image (rather than black) and since I watercolored the images I needed something that wouldn’t bleed! I colored in the image with an Aqua Painter and used Dapper Denim, Peekaboo Peach, Emerald Envy, and Chocolate Chip. I love it. I layered this piece (2″ square) onto a 2-1/4″ Dapper Denim square. I attached it to my card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals!

If you would like to see more samples using the Sitting Here Stamp Set, check them out here and here and stay tuned. I have been having so much fun with this set!!! 🙂

Yesterday I posted a video showing you how to fix an ink pad that has been stamped in with the wrong color. It happens to everyone, you get on a roll and start stamping and hit the wrong ink pad or think it is one color when it is another. Have no fear, it is really easy to fix. You can check that out here!!!

Have a wonderful weekend and I’ll see you back here on Monday!!! 🙂

Happy Stampin’
