It's a delight sharing the new Stampin' Up! products with you on my Stampin' Pretty blog. However, I have a few old favorite stamp sets and Simply Said (still current) was calling out to me this past weekend. Things fell right into place when combining these stamps with this week's Mojo Monday Sketch (MOJO146) by Julee Tilman.
STAMPIN' PRETTY TIPS:
Using a snippet of the Island Oasis Designer Series Paper (in the Tempting Turquoise Polka Dot pattern) among the "balloons" pulls together the matching pattern on the left.
Soft butterfly impressions. I used VersaMark to ink up my butterfly (Hostess Level 2 Punched Posies) for a soft and pretty finish. I love how the Punched Posies set works with Stampin' Up! Punches–in this case the Butterfly Punch.
I knew the top right corner needed a little something but felt brads might be too busy with the "balloons." I opted for a bit of tone on tone texture using Rose Red card stock and the Elegant Bouquet Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
I love hearing from you :) Please leave me your comments and questions below!
