You Bless Me

I hope yours was a glorious day, mine certainly was.  It was just a day that everything clicked – I got so much done around the house.  Today I got around to pulling out a new stamp set that hasn’t laid around for years and years – so I’m assuming it’s pretty current.  The stamp set I chose was a Wordsworth acrylic set – and since I’m trying to change things up a bit and work outside of my comfort zone – I picked something that definitely was not my normal style.  There was a larger sentiment in the set that I was drawn to – but for this card, I pulled together other smaller stamps from the set. I love the flower in this set…it has the outline and the solid inner shape.  Even though I seasoned the stamp, I found it didn’t take the ink as well as I wanted, so through the miracle of acrylic I was able to line it up and add a second coat of ink.  

I had fits getting a true representation of the colors on the photo above, the bottom picture is a truer reflection of the colors – an apricot design paper accented by a moss or sage green. 


Stamps:  Wordsworth Stamps – Friends Collection
Inks:  SU Mellow Moss, SU Elegant Eggplant, SU Lavender Lace
Paper:  Bazzill; Marcella Kay – Bungalow
Accessories:  Nestabilities, Brads, ribbon, ornare template, Martha Stewart Scallop Border Punch

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I’m so tickled to get to know some of you through your comments. Have a blessed day!

    Ooh, love those colors, and you really have a way with embellishments (that’s an area I definitely struggle with, so I’m always drawn to cards that have those little extra “pops” without being obnoxious!)

    I never seem to be able to get good coverage with dye inks on my acrylics, either, so generally turn to chalk or hybrid inks. Double stamping is a great solution, though – may have to give that a try next time I’m looking for just the right color in my pile o’ inks :)ReplyCancel

    Very sweet card! I have had some trouble with some acrylic stamps like that, but not for a while. I am surprised too that you would have difficulty with a wordsworth set — I seem to have more trouble with less expensive ones. Anyway your card turned out fabulous.ReplyCancel

    Very, very nice card! I have always love Wordworth stamps but don’t see them as much any more. This is just my second day and I have a few more on the feed to look at, this is so wonderful. Thank you, Lord for leading me here.ReplyCancel
