So today's share features the Patterned Occasions stamp set and the latest In Colors from Stampin' Up! – and later in the day than I had planned! Patterned Occasions is one of the stamp sets that you can pick for Sale-a-Bration rewards!
The more I use this stamp set, the more I don't like it – the more I love it! You can use the images with the words or without. Or seperate them for the fun look below.
This started as a monochromatic card, believe it or not. It was originally Midnight Muse and Marina Mist. And it sat on my desk today – and sat there. And then I photographed it. And it sat there. And then I changed it to Summer Starfruit and Midnight Muse. And it sat there, and I re-photographed it. And it sat there. And then I changed it FINALLY to what you see here. I liked it earlier today, but I LOVE it now! And I only like to share with you projects that I love.
There are two things that are Big Shotted, the Whisper White layers and the middle circle on the big scallop layer. That is done with the #2 Circles die – which is my favorite die, just in case you were wondering! Boring, right? Nope – that is my most awesome tools for all kinds of layers. My VIP Members have seen me use this die in all kinds of ways.
So here is the final version of the card today:
Every single one of the In Colors were used in one way or another on this card.
