I pulled out an old favorite stamp set today, You’re Amazing. It’s been a while since I’ve used it and I love this set. At this time of year I start feeling a little sentimental. Stampin’ Up! will release its retiring list next week, and those stamps on the list will never be available again. Now I don’t know what sets will be on it yet, but those sets that have been around for a while and I don’t see getting used much anymore always make me a little anxious. This is one that I hope isn’t on the list. I may not use it much anymore, but I still love it.
I used my markers (Island Indigo, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Summer Starfruit) to color the stamp. I then cut it out with one of the Apothecary Accents dies. Since I didn’t quite allow enough room on one side of the sentiment for the die when I stamped it, I cut off a little bit on one of the sides. So I took my paper snips and rounded it out a bit and did the same on the other side. I like the look it gave it! I then sponged a little Crumb Cake ink on the edges.
I used some of the dsp patterns from the Soho Subway package. I added some Linen Thread and Island Indigo Baker’s Twine to make a bow, and then placed one of the Crisp Cantaloupe Boutique Details and some Crisp Cantaloupe ruffled ribbon on top. I just love that color, don’t you?
Enjoy your Thursday! Thanks for stopping by!
