Fabulous stamp sets
Fabulous stamp sets are everywhere and to find one is relatively easy. For, me the Secret Garden along with it’s matching framelit is one of those sets.
Why do I find this stamp set to be so fabulous? Here are a couple of reasons:
First, its versatility. It can be used for a variety of cards for example, birthday, anniversary, sympathy, etc. It can also be used on a scrapbook page.
This stamp set comes with 5 different styles of flowers, set of leaves and a stem. Some of the ideas to use the flowers are as a bouquet, all tied up with a bow; how about using the pop-up die to create a flower shop style card.
The flowers come in line stamps, or full image stamps and lend themselves to embossing with embossing powder, or maybe adding some Dazzling Diamond glitter in the center, pearls or rhinestones.
On this particular card, I used the whitewash coloring technique. You can see the video for this technique HERE.
For added interest, the Smokey Slate card stock is embossed with the Woodgrain embossing folder and then sponged with Whisper White craft ink.
So, this is one of those fabulous stamp sets that will take you in many directions.
