But after the great Christmas In July blog hop from the previous post I wanted to play along with Kerry's Color Throwdown #6 and this great color combo. Here are a couple of cards that use the August Card Club stamp set that is available for only $4.50 with any $30.00 order to all Card Club members! It also uses one of the new Gift With Purchase stamps that are FREE with any $30.00 purchase - you can get a lot for your $30.00 purchase don't ya think?
This is the definition of simple stamping - no embellies, no bulk - and very little layering.....unusual for me :)
This one uses one of the new Tim Holtz embossing folders for the background and I sponged it with some brown ink for a little definition. The "thank you" sentiment is from the "Apple of My Eye" set that I used for the card below too!
And of course I couldn't wait to ink up this sweet little bear from Maybelle's
"Apple of My Eye" set.
Hope you enjoy and can gather a little inspiration to get stamping!
