Bordering Blooms


I love mixing a neutral and a bright color!  It adds a great contrast and pop to the project… this is the case with August!!image



This Bordering Blooms stamp set is SUPER fast and easy to use.  They are longs trips of images and perfectly spaced to do the outside images in one step and the inside in another set!  Tip Top Taupe and Daffodil Delight are the colors used here.  I am a Kansas Girl.  And, these little flowers faintly remind me of sunflowers (my FAVORITE).  And, August is a good month for sunflowers!

A Blooming Thank You


I feel as I am growing up in my cardmaking (I suppose, if you are counting by years in SU, I am now a teenager…oh my), I do notice my tastes changing.  This probably has a lot to do with current trends in just about everything, but more and more I find myself reaching for neutrals and creating simplicity.  This card is that.  Neutral simplicity.


I love this set called Bordering Blooms.  It is a FABULOUS border set.  And EASY.  I used TWO stamps on this card.  TWO.  The thanks comes from Endless Thanks (also a set I love, and it’s companion, Endless Birthday Wishes). I digress.


I used Tip Top Taupe and Sahara Sand and White (Sahara and Taupe are the monochromatic pairs… I just LOVE how SU gives us those options in their papers and inks).  And, I colored in the selected flowers with the white gel pin.  Added a some bling and THERE YOU GO.  Instant Thank You.  You can make a bazillion of these in no time.  It’s good to make several at once… then you have a stockpile for when you need.  OH… I didn’t get a pic of this… but that Bordering Blooms is also a GREAT stamp to put across the bottom of envelopes.  To add pizzazz.  Cause we all need pizzazz… even with Neutral Simplicity.
