Tonight’s Aha Moment…

5 Sep

Tonight was the 2nd night of stamp-a-stack. Here’s another one of the cards we made. It uses the Inspired by nature stamp set and the Holiday Wishes stamp set. To color the flowers, I applied color to the rubber with sponge daubers dabbed on the ink pads. It gives the flowers a softer look.

Well, my aha moment came tonight when my friend Carole Rahn said (see, Carole, I promised you credit!), “This stamp would be great made into coneflowers.” Well….of course I hadn’t thought of that one. So when she left I had to try it and here’s the result. I stamped onto a mat made with the Top Note Bigz Die. (Gosh, I love my Big Shot!) I also used the filigree brads at the end of the hemp for a little piece of interest. What do you think?

So, I thought I’d round out today’s entry with a final project made with this Inspired By Nature set. We created this cute gift bag at convention this year. It uses the new Tango Tangerine CS and Designer Paper. Have I convinced you that this set is wonderful yet?
