Blooming with Kindness in Strawberry Slush


I found it! I have been missing my Blooming With Kindness stamp set for months. I know that I had one because I definitely used it before Christmas but I can’t remember seeing it since.

While cleaning my stamp room this weekend to get ready for my Retired Rubber Sale, I spotted this set. Right where it was supposed to be in the bookcase with all of my other sets. I don’t know how I could have overlooked it so often but now I have it. 


And I wanted to stamp with it right away. I also knew that I wanted to use the Natural Composition Specialty Designer Series Paper. So this was my starting point. 

I am still loving the new In Colors so I decided to add Strawberry Slush to the card. Does anyone else really crave a margarita when working with this color?

Whisper White was my first choice for a neutral but it was just too harsh with this card so I substituted Naturals Ivory. Continuing with the same ivory tone, I added a Very Vintage Designer Button.

And that was my creative process.


How do you work? Do you start with a color palette? a favorite accessory? a layout you like? Leave a comment and let me know.


Today is the last day to order from the previous catalogue. See the retiring stamps  and accessories.
