Here is a look at this month's EXCLUSIVE stamp set!! πŸ’—

What a FUN set of stamp sets!! I know I can and will use these for MANY of my outdoor Scrapbook layouts--but what about using this on a CARD design too? πŸ€”

Let's take a look at what I created!πŸ₯ΎπŸ§­

I used THREE main ink colors throughout this card... Sage, Toffee and our Color of the Year - Blue Belle.  What GREAT outdoor colors for this card design! I even chose to use 2nd generation stamping for the curvy borderto pull a 4th color into the mix! 
By stamping your inked image on a SCRAP paper and then stamping again on your artwork....you get a lighter shade of the ink color you were using! This is what we call 2nd generation. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜ 


To keep the "outdoor" and "woodsy" feel of this card, I pulled in our Woodgrain 5x7 Embossing folder!! I placed my Toffee Cardstock inside & ta-dah....a rustic look!! 

The BEAUTIFUL new Leaf Layer Thin Cuts caught my eyeπŸ‘€ in this mini catalog...have you taken notice of them?! πŸ’—
 I thought our Copper Ore Cardstock might be the perfect match...and it was!

 I hope you can see the "shine" this Cardstock has! It's a BEAUTY of cardstock & I'm so glad I chose to purchase it!  The catalog can not capture the BEAUTY of this Copper Ore!

I needed a "backdrop" for my leaves...our Hexagon Stitched Thin Cuts to the RESCUE! 

Did you know these Hexagons come in 5 different sizes?? (4 1/2", 3 1/2", 2 1/2", 1 1/2", and 1/2") I LOVE these options!

Let's take a close-up look at the "hello" on this card---can you see where I grabbed that word from?πŸ˜‰

Do you see it??πŸ€”πŸ˜‰? I used PART of the "hello summer" stamp border!!🌞  I used a post-it note to block off the word summer....inked up the "hello" in black...and then took off the inky post-it note prior to stamping it on my handmade banner!!

The "highlight" behind the word hello is a STAMP image!! Check out this fabulous stamp set ---from our "Story by Stacy" collection!

Our "Stitched Lattice Background Thin Cut", doesn't have to be for a fancy card. πŸ˜‰ I cut this Background Thin Cut out of Blue Belle CS, and was excited how WELL it fit this rustic card too!  Isn't the scallop edge the perfect fit? 

I used our Rose Gold Sequins & our Wood Arrows to make the final touches on my card.  I hope you enjoy it, as much as I enjoyed making it! 
Thanks for stopping by today! πŸ˜πŸ™Œ
