When I popped by yesterday to post the retired litst I realised it has been awhile since I posted anything.   I haven’t had a chance to do a lot of stamping in the last few weeks, with Matt away fighting fires I have been busy keeping things ticking over on the home front. 

Since I haven’t stamped much lately here’s a card using the “Embrace Life” set from the Summer Mini Catalogue which the girls made at Stamp-a-Stack.  I really like the Asian feel of this set with the bamboo and the cherry blossoms.


The large flower has been stamped on a piece of Ginger Blossom patterned paper and then cut out.  The cherry blossoms were coloured using a blender pen and a Groovy Guava ink pad.   I didn’t have any half backed pearls from the Pretties Kit left so I just used some out of my stash, I think they are Kaiser.


STAMPS: Embrace Life INK: Groovy Guava, Chocolate Chip PAPER: Chocolate Chip, River Rock, Groovy Guava, Very Vanilla, Ginger Blossom DSP ACCRSSORIES: River Rock doubled stitched ribbon, blender pen, Kaiser half back pearls
