Inspired by Nature Stamp Set



Stamp Set: Inspired by Nature
Cardstock: Pink Pirouette, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White
Ink: Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red

I can see this set being a real favorite. I stamped the grass in Kiwi Kiss and then stamped off to give it a lighter touch. I stamped the flowers in Pink Pirouette and then dabbed Riding Hood Red on the tops with a sponge dauber. LOVE the soft effect.

Scallop Card

Dannie Graves did a wonderful tutorial for this darling little scallop card made with the Big Shot Die Cut!! You can see her tutorial here. So I had to take her challenge and made one tonight!! What fun!!

Ink: Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red
Embellishments: Pretty in Pink Taffeta Ribbon

As per Dannie's tutorial, I used the Big Shot Scallop Circle #2 and made my card with a fold in the top. Added the ribbon - such a sweet little card. This card is 3 3/8" in diameter.
