You're Amazing

Stampin' Up! You're Amazing Stamp Set

If you've ever wanted to let someone know just how amazing you think they are, here is one way to do it!

The focal image, from the aptly named You're Amazing Stamp Set, has an "old-fashioned poster" look and feel to it and I love the delicate scroll around the sentiment.

I inked the stamp using More Mustard and Riding Hood Red ink pads, correcting any overlap with a Blender Pen. This technique was fairly easy to do with such a large image to work with, although I certainly could have used Stampin' Write Markers instead.

The two die-cut shapes work beautifully together - Apothecary Accents Framelits for the Whisper White piece and the Bigz Clear Oval Accent die for the mat behind it (dry embossed with the Square Lattice embossing folder). The vintage-y patterned paper, from the Comfort Cafe Designer Series Paper collection, makes the perfect backdrop for this card.

The Midnight Muse Dahlia Adornment looked great on it's own above the sentiment, but it was lonely so I created a few quick embellishments of my own to coordinate. The larger flower was created from Riding Hood Red card stock, cropped with the Boho Blossoms punch and stamped using just the corner scroll work from the main image (in Riding Hood Red). The smaller flowers are punched from More Mustard card stock using the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack flower.

Now I just have to narrow down which amazing person will get this card. Hmmm ... decisions, decisions. Hee!
