Lotus Blossom Thank You

I can't tell you how much fun this stamp set is to use!!

It makes a gorgeous flower with such little effort
(especially for someone like me who is just not that crafty)!!

We start this card with a Coastal Cabana Card Base, then we added that beautiful layer of striped Designer Series Paper.

Are you wondering which paper this is......??

Well, it happens to be the Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper found in the Sale-a-Bration catalog (yours FREE with a $50 order!).

This DSP is a white paper with a glossy white pattern that is perfect for coloring!!  We used our Sponge Daubers and Island Indigo ink to create a beautiful striped pattern on this paper.  Just rub the Sponge Dauber across the paper, then wipe off any remaining ink with a tissue - the color stays on the white paper but not on the glossy parts.  It is so cool!!

Sponge Daubers  133773  $4.95

Next, we stamped our flower (from the Lotus Blossom Sale-a-Bration Stamp Set - we used Coastal Cabana ink for the first two layers of the stamp (remember to "stamp off" the first solid image stamp on a scratch paper before stamping on your card stock).  Then, we used Island Indigo ink on the third (and smallest) image of this stamp set and Old Olive ink for the stem.

We added a couple of Rhinestones to this piece for a little sparkle.

We layered this piece on top of an Old Olive piece that was die-cut along the side with our Finishing Touches Edgelits.

Finishing Touches Edgelits  127010  $9.95

Rhinestones  119246  $4.95

Finally, we stamped "the kindness you show has no end...." and "thank you" (also from the Lotus Blossom Stamp set) and punched them out with the 1 3/8" and 1" Circle Punches.

1" Circle Punch  119868  $12.95
1 3/8" Circle Punch  119860  $15.95

I hope you enjoyed this card!!
