This Delicious Solitude

So, my favorite season is upon us but I wanted to hold onto one last taste of another beautiful season. Spring.  And what better way than to use the soft colors and freshness that Spring brings with it.

Stamps: Flower and Sentiment from Nature Notes half-plate

Rogue Redheads Nature Notes is such a versatile set with Fabulous images and sentiments.  I have never made a white on white card and thought that this flower image really complimented the simple feel I was going for.

Vintage Seamless

My Sister had a party this weekend where we created seamless cards.  It's a very simple technique, but the outcome is Fabulous!

Stampin' Up Night of Navy, Whisper White and Summer Starfruit cardstock
Stampin' Up Night of Navy and Summer Starfruit ink pads
Stampin' Up French Foliage and Gently Falling stamp sets
Re-positional glue, sponge and adhesive

1. Put re-positional glue on the backs of the 2 smallest pieces of white cardstock.  Then place them on the largest piece of white cardstock where you would like them.
2. Choose your colors and stamps, stamping all over the glued pieces of white cardstock.
3. When done with stamping and inking(if you want) peal apart pieces, adhere to navy matts and re-adhere back into position. Creating the Seamless look :)
