The thing that I love about this set is it has 3 options–there is a watercolor look , a 2-step option, and an outline image to color or two step or three step with…that is a lot of options!

I embossed the background (debossed, really) and added some metallic thread (It needed a bit of shine!)

The stamping is easy–I did the two step images that have the watercolor texture for a quick and easy look.  I LOVE the Early Espresso in this color scheme, too!

The Sentiment is from Layering Love and is very fun–you could use any of the images in that set!

Next I wanted to change it up a little bit–I used the outline image with one of the solid ones. So pretty–again I just love the Early Espresso!

And can we talk about the little polka dot border with this set???  I LOVE THEM!!!  They are so great for creating backgrounds and accents–as I have done here!  So fun to add a little splash of color!  The other thing I love about this set are the leaves–so pretty!  The sentiment on this card is from One Big Meaning.

  2. Lovely mini set.
    I love making these, because it’s so delightful to stamp a few slightly different cards when you already have the stamps pulled out of your stash.

  3. These are beautiful! I have this stamp set, and was having trouble lining it up correctly; the tip about the arrow tab is great! I love the colors that you used, too. Haven’t seen many projects with this one, and I love it, so I was very happy to see what you made. thank you for the wonderful ideas.

  4. You make this stampset come to life! The cards are beautiful. You always find the right colors to use when making any card. I’m not very good at lining up the two and three step stamps. I suppose it takes practice or the angle in which you look at it. Great tip about the shading with a sponge around the edges and between the leaves and flowers. Thanks, Dena

  5. So glad you liked the projects–and enjoyed the tips! It does take a little practice–I think making sure the stamps are oriented correctly makes a huge difference! Keep playing–that is the fun of stamping! ๐Ÿ™‚
