Have you taken a peek at the Best Wishes & More stamp set (111602)? It's a versatile, year round set for the seasoned or "rookie" stamper. The wavy sentiments are luscious. I have the stamp images below for you to see the full set for yourself.
I needed a quick thank you and inked up the Best Wishes bird in Always Artichoke and stamped on Whisper White. The image was then cropped out, cut and embossed using Nestabilities Squares and a Big Shot Die-Cut Machine.
TIP: If you want to add brads or an accent on the image, consider stamping and cutting off center to accommodate the hardware "bling." I added three of Stampin' Up!'s Styled Silver Brads (Hodgepodge Hardware) to jazz up the corner. The image is layered on Chocolate Chip card stock and shaped with a Scalloped Square from Nestabilities.
I pulled out my Patterns Pack Designer Series Paper (Hostess Level 1) and plucked out two dishy Always Artichoke patterns. They are layered over Chocolate Chip and a snippet of Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon pulls everything together. The card base is Whisper White (4.25 x 5.5–no surprises here :).
The Chocolate Chip sentiment is from Beautiful Borders, stamped on Whisper White. It's popped out with a Small Oval Punch and fits neatly within the boundaries of the Styled Silver Label Holder. A 1 3/8" Circle of Always Artichoke patterned paper jumps in the game and ultimately lands on a Scalloped Circle in Chocolate Chip.
