Because I Care

We are having such a beautiful day today, warm sunshine with a slight breeze, does it get any better?! Well, yes it does because I got a little more stamping in with some of the new stuff from the new catalogue.

I'd be lying to you if I didn't say I love this card. Love how the new Cherry Cobbler looks combined with Crumb Cake (formerly known as Kraft) and black. I'm also so excited to finally have ink in the Kraft colour, oops, Crumb Cake.

This stamp set is one of the new Hostess level 1 sets, isn't it gorgeous! And you want to know the best part? This set will be one of many door prizes at my grand Catalogue Kick off Party!!! Yup, you read that right. Anyone that attends my party on July 12th is entered to win this stamp set. I'm so excited I can hardly wait!

But on to the card, lol. I cut out a mask for the rectangle in the middle, I then used a sponge with the Crumb cake ink and kept sponging until I was happy with it. The flower was stamped on another piece of WW cardstock, I quickly went over the entire flower with an aqua painter and Cherry Cobbler. Then I took my blender pen and picked up more of the same ink and darkened the shaded areas. The leaves were done basically the same way only I used some Kiwi Kiss (retired) and Old Olive. The flower was carefully cut out and glued down.

Stamps: Because I Care (Loooooooooooove this set!)
Paper: Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black, Crumb Cake (Looooooooooooove the new inks!)
Other: Black Brads, Black Satin Ribbon

Thanks for stopping by, hope you're enjoying your day!

Fabulous, so hope we get this stamping Aus. Think I'll love Cherry Cobbler and Marina Mist, can't wait to see them IRL.
