Thinking Of You

I just won this stamp set- Tulips and Daisies- from Unity Stamp Company in the Unity Thursday blog hop on March 12 & received it in the mail on the First Day of Spring- March 20. I was gonna make a card that day anyway so I decided to get this set inky! :) I started the card Friday afternoon & messed up on the tulips stamp so I redid the tulips last night. I'm so glad I did! The card base is Recollections 4.25 in x 5.5 in.  The sentiment- Thinking of You and the tulips are from the Unity stamp set as I said before. The striped PP is from My Mind's Eye Bella Bella 12x12 Scrapbooking Pad. The pink mat under the sentiment is Recollections Butterfly Wings.  The mat under the tulips is from Martha Stewart 4x12 in Brights Punch Pad. I used Versafine Black Onyx Pigment Ink on both stamps. The colored pencils I used are EK SUCCESS Earth Colors Memory Pencils- Gold, Silver, Meadow Green, Hazel, and Magenta. I will be using these more often- they create a much neater look on stamped images! The ribbon is Martha Stewart Living. I adhered it using my Xyron 1.5" Create A Sticker maker. The floral PP is from American Crafts Dear Lizzy Neapolitan 6x6 in Paper Pad. I used Tombow Multi Mono glue on both stamps and then added Recollections Foam Adhesive Squares under them to give some dimension to the card. That's it! I can't wait to use the rest of the stamp set! :) TFL!
