Thoughts of You

On this card, I used a clear block stamping technique. It's just what it sounds like; I used one of my clear blocks as a stamp.  I wasn't getting the coverage that I wanted by tapping the block on the ink pad, as I usually do with stamps, so I put the block at the top of the ink pad and dragged it across the surface.  Then stamp, it's that easy!

Stamps:  Polka-Dot Pieces
Ink:  Pistachio Pudding, Night of Navy
Paper:  Whisper White, Night of Navy, Pistachio Pudding
Other:  Pearls

You are wonderful!

I used some retired materials on this card, but it would be easy to recreate it using other stamp sets and DSP.  The sunlight was a challenge to photograph in, but I finally got one with which I was happy!

Stamps:  Friendly Phrases (retired)
Paper:  Whisper White, Sunshine and Sprinkles DSP (retired)
Ink:  Lucky Limeade
Other:  Pearls, Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder (retired), Beautiful Wings embosslit
