Thankful for Sunday Stamps! #145

Welcome back to another challenge at Sunday Stamps!  This week we are working with a color challenge.  I decided to ink up my new Hostess stamp set called Thankful Life from the Occasions catalog.
I found that you should stamp the flower images first and then add the vase last.  I also found that it was the easiest to stamp the flowers in this order: 1) stamp the flower image (as shown above) in Early  Espresso; 2) stamp the flower image in Calypso Coral, and 3) stamp the cute little flowers as shown in Peekaboo Peach ink.  Since this is a photopolymer stamp set, it was very easy to line them up.  The results? A beautiful vase of flowers! :)

The colors in this weeks challenge made me think of field flowers.  Therefore, I thought the Hardwood background stamp set would be a great addition.  Here's this weeks challenge at Sunday Stamps!

The colors I chose to work with this weeks challenge are: Early Espresso, Smoky Slate, Peekaboo Peach and Calypso Coral.
I added some depth by stamping some of the flowers in Calypso Coral and punched them out with a 3/8" circle punch.  I used my Aqua Painter to add a shadow under the vase using Smoky Slate ink.

Thankful Card Supplies:

  • Stamps: Thankful Life (Hostess set), Hardwood
  • Ink: Early Espresso, Smoky Slate, Calypso Coral, Peekaboo Peach
  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White, Smoky Slate, Early Espresso
  • Accessories: Aqua Painter, Peekaboo Peach 3/8" Ruched Ribbon,  Peekaboo Peach Enamel Shapes, Early Espresso Marker.
