Udderly Fantastic

It is so hot here in Central Illinois that the best thing to do is stay inside and stamp.  Playing with the Over The Moon stamp set today, and coloring with my Stampin' Blends. I did incorporate another stamp set called Fable Friends, I like the grass stamp in that set.  Decided to go with gingham, for some reason cows just look good on it and, it reminds me of being on a farm.  Stay cool my stamping friends!

The Floral Essence Stamp Set is BEAUTIFUL!

The Perennial Essence Suite is just Gorgeous! The Designer Series Paper is hand painted imagery from an artist at Stampin' Up!  Beautiful enough to just put it in a frame and hang it on the wall. I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies for the Petal Pink background, stamped the background in Petal Pink with one of the flowers from the Floral Essence Stamp set.  Using the largest thin rectangle I cut out the Designer Series Paper.  I cut out the Flirty Flamingo for the sentiment with the Stitched Shapes Dies and stamped the sentiment in the top left corner with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  I used another flower in the stamp set that coordinates with Perennial Flower Punch (purchase in a bundle and save 10%) onto whisper white cardstock with Petal Pink Ink.  I used glue dots to put the flower together, added some glue to the center of the flower and added Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to the center.  I used a bone folder to curve the petals down.  Added some Stampin' Dimensio

Bloom & Grow in Highland Heather

I am slowly getting the hang of coloring with Stampin' Blends.  I am used to using a Light, Medium, and a Dark shade to color with, so there is a bit of a learning curve with just a Light and Dark shade.  If you like to color, the Bloom & Grow Stamp Set (also comes in a bundle, save 10%) is wonderful.
