Hello Blossoms and FTL139

Today's card uses this week's sketch from the Clean and Simple blog. The sketch was perfect for the Hello Blossoms a la carte stamp. This stamp combines an image and the sentiment in one.

In retrospect, I think I should have used Regal Rose cardstock in place of the yellow layer to add another touch of that color to the card. What do you think? Leave me a comment and let me know.

Stamping Vogue Tips:
  • Use Stampin Write Markers to ink up the different colors on the stamp. Then "huff" on the stamp to re-moisten the ink before stamping.
  • You can also use markers to ink only part of a stamp. I wanted my tag to say "friend" rather than "friends" so I used an Early Expresso marker to ink only the first 6 letters.
