Thinking of You

Doesn't the weekend always go way too fast?  Personally I think we should have 3 day weekends and 4 day work week.  Doesn't that sound good?  

Here's a card using the Colorful Seasons stamp set.   Did you notice my flowers look like they are two different inks?  No they are not!  They are both Berry Burst.  I used the technique called Stamping Off.  You stamp the first image and right away stamp another image.  Do not reink the stamp inbetween.  This way you just get a lighter shade.  I love this technique is because it's super easy.  You don't have to worry about color coordinating.  

Here's a tip.  Stamp a few extra flowers additionally to what you think you will need.  Sometimes the cut image isn't always lined up in the framelit the way you thought.    This way, you can just cut some of the extras you have ready.  No going back to re-stamp!  But don't throw away those extras!  I like to keep mine with the stamp set.  This way I always know where they are.
