More Betsy's Blossoms

Here's another fun card using the new stamp set, Betsy's Blossoms. 

Colors are Tangerine Tango, Rose Red, Rich Razzleberry and Baja Breeze.   The designer series paper is a new one called Floral District. How could I resist anything with "floral" in its name?

 I am totally loving the new style of ink pads.  The case is the same, but now they are a foam pad which inks the stamps much more evenly and there's no dip in the center of the pads.  You don't have to press as hard into the pad and when you have a large, solid image stamp, you don't have to do the "tap, tap, tap, check to see if it's inked, tap some more" process.

New Toys

So sorry it's been two months since I posted. I really do have a valid reason though. We're doing a huge remodel so life's been a bit abnormal. This is what my kitchen looked like a couple weeks ago.

  My favorite part of the remodel was when the crane moved our 6-800 lb smoker from the back yard up to the front yard. It kind of looked like a UFO flying through the air.   Anyway, we still have almost two months to go before we're back in the kitchen. 

So, on to the stamping...  These cards were made with a brand new set called Betsy's Blossoms.  It's a solid image set with flowers, a bird, a branch and a leaf.  The coordinating wheel at the bottom adds a nice touch.  One tip is to use your sanding block on these The colors on these are from the new 2012-2014 In Colors.  They are Raspberry Ripple, Midnight Muse and Summer Starfruit. 

Check back tomorrow and I'll have another sample with this stamp set.  Plus, I have promised myself that I will do some more stamping soon, so there should be more to come.
