I have been wanting Stampin' Up!'s Netting Background stamp since it first came out and I just got it and have been dying to use it with the Creative Elements Stamp set and today was the day!  Armed with my coffee, I headed into my stamp room this morning and then just sat there staring at the two sets.  It wasn't as if I was waiting to soak up their stamp energy or anything, (but now that I wrote that, maybe I should), and I wasn't waiting for them to actually talk to me.  I was more or less trying to imagine colors.  I knew that I wanted it to be a softer look, but I did not want a lot of pastels either.  So I sat some more, just staring.

Then, after finishing my first cuppa, I decided on reds and yellows, and remember I said that I wanted it softer?  Enter Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake and this is what you get…

Creative Elements, netting, stampin up, mojoMy first error was stamping the Netting Background in Crumb Cake, but was fixed by cleaning the stamp and throwing some So Saffron ink on there. 

And the only Big Shotting done was the scallop square from the Square Scallop Duo Die from Stampin' Up!

Add some Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon and some hand cutting out of the flower and you have your instant card.

So what did I do with the piece that I first stamped the Netting background stamp on with Crumb Cake – instant inside of the card!  Why throw it away?  That was a fun way to use it! 

The only piece that might be a bit hard to see is the punched piece of Riding Hood Red, it was punched with the 1 3/4" Circle punch, just to help my flower pop.
