One of a Kind

If anyone has checked my blog lately, you might have wondered where I disappeared to! It's just been hectic this last 5 or 6 months with my family life and my work life. One daughter got married, then two weeks later my father suffered a life-threatening brain event from which he is still recovering. Praises to God, he is doing great now, just continues to need therapy and still has a few ongoing issues, but overall he is a walking miracle.

Now I feel like I can think about my stamping and my stamping business again, and I'm ready to get to it! I finally sat down and made myself stamp a card with a couple of my new stamp sets from the new Spring & Summer Idea Book & Catalog. I used "One of a Kind" and "Boho Backgrounds," both brand new sets from the new catalog. I used the "dotted" background to stamp across the lower part of the Purely Pomegranate cardstock in Close to Cocoa ink. I used Close to Cocoa Designer Paper across the top portion of the card. Then I stamped the circle stamp from Boho Backgrounds in Purely Pomegranate ink on Whisper White cardstock and punched it out with the scallop punch. Then I stamped the 3-flower stamp from One of a Kind in Purely Pomegranate ink and used the new coordinating punch, Boho Blooms, to punch out the flowers. In the largest flower, I punched a hole and placed an Ice brad, new to the last catalog. Then I just stamped the greeting and used glue dots to adhere the other 2 flowers from the bloom punch. I used the Pomegranate double-stitched ribbon to finish it all off. Hope you enjoy it!
