Simply Soft

     The part about designing that I love the most is getting to ‘play’ with stamp sets to see 100_3356just what I can do with them.  These two lovely cards didn’t make the cut as a make-n-take at my Open House.  Although I really like them, I really wanted to use some of the new ruffled ribbon on the make-n-take.  My order with the ribbon hadn’t arrived at my door yet.  I’ll post the end result in a few days. :) 

     On both of these cards, I ran a layer of Lucky Limeade through the Big Shot using the 100_3352Square Lattice Embossing folder.  On a Whisper White layer, I randomly stamped the outline of the flower images from the Two-Step stamping Hostess set, Simply Soft, in Jet Black StazOn.  Then, I went back over the random stampings with the ‘filler’ image (one using Calypso Coral and the other Daffodil Delight).  The sentiments are from the Swirls & Curls Verses set (another lovely Hostess set – which I think I will use quite often).   I finished by sponging some Lucky Limeade ink in a circular motion over top of the image.  It just gives it a nice background for the image to ‘sit’ on.  

     These Two-step stamp sets are so easy to use.  I have something in mind for another time already.  Gotta love it!  I hope you found some inspiration today.  Give a two-step stamp a second look :)  Thanks for stopping by today.
