Elegant Floral

Last Friday, I went to Brenda's (another CTMH consultant) and we stamped in the morning. We try to meet once a month. Our kids play while we stamp and talk about all the great new happenings in the stamping world.

I pulled out Elegant Floral and Elegant Bouquet for my trip to Brenda's. I just love this stamp set. It is so pretty, and the paper packet was made for it. I used the following inks: Cranberry, Barn Red and Garden Green. I inked the scalloped dimensional element with Garden Green and then stamp "Thanks" in Cranberry for the stamp set For Every Occasion (2007 April stamp of the month). To finish off the card, I used Ivory organdy ribbon and Cranberry brads. The card base is Colonial White, 5 1/2 x 4 1/4.

Still asking questions:

Cindy asked, "What is your favorite CTMH stamp set to color in?"

I have thought about this question for weeks too! I have come to the conclusion...I don't have a favorite. There are so many outline Halloween and Christmas stamp sets that I can't choose one. If you want to start coloring in more, pick a holiday stamp set. They seem to be the ones I pick first if I am coloring in with markers. I did purchase School Zone and haven't played with it yet, so I will let you know when I do. That one is perfect to color in with markers or prisma colors. By the way, I found a 120 prisma colors set on Ebay for $67.00 and change shipping included, so I bought them. They should arrive this week. I can't wait! I will be stalking the mailman each day, until he brings them. I will have to play a lot with those before I let you see anything I have created.

Happy Monday!

What a great card, it is so elegant looking. I have lots of CTMH stamps and love seeing cards made with them.
