For cards with Sitting Pretty I was able to mix in some sentiments from Love What You Do as the fonts are similar. The stamp only has the wrought iron seat, and I could picture it at the end of a day, with the glow of a sunset shining through. So pleased that the dies include this one and a bench-style seat, as well as the bulldog, squirrel and plant. It does make life so much easier, for those of us with arthritic hands. Can still wind the handle on the Big Shot, just the scissor action isn't so steady!!!
And one without the sunset. Doesn't Blackberry Bliss look so good with Tranquil Tide? Such a strong colour combination.Seems quite suitable for a bloke with the linen thread and all.
All the patterned paper I used for my display is from Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper. There is a great range of colours included, a little something for everyone. I can hardly wait to share this suite with my customers during May, they're going to love it!
The stamping of the 2nd step, colour onto the little critters could have been better, but I have my Stamparatus now, so I expect next time I ink it up, will be much bettter. I'm thrilled to bits with the co-ordinating dies, which I tried out the day they arrived. The Big Shot is my best friend, as you might be able to tell with all the die cutting on this particular card. Missing you was from a part of a bigger stamp and I coloured only the words I wanted by covering the remainder with washi tape. This is removed before stamping.
There is still more to come but for now I will leave you,
