I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Thank You

Hi all,

Yipee, it's Friday tomorrow. I'm definitely ready for the weekend.

In my earlier post this week, I said that I might make another card, because I really like Ann's color theme this week at the Paper Players Challenge. I was able to get another one made. Using very different shades of red and pink, and using a new to me flower set from Altenew, I made this.

I used some Altenew inks for the flowers and leaves. The darker shade is called Crimson and the light pink is called Blush. The background stamp is from Concord & 9th. It is stamped using Gina K Amalgam black ink. The flowers and leaves are cut out using the corresponding set dies. The sentiment is part of the Altenew flower set and it's heat embossed and cut out with an SU banner die.

Here is the inside, which uses a Gina K stamp for the sentiment and a small flower image from another Concord & 9th set.

The card bass is SU Poppy Parade which matches the Altenew Crimson in very well.

I hope you all have a great Friday and a very happy weekend. Thanks for looking,
