Lovely Friends is a new stamp set that will be available in the upcoming 2017-2018 Stampin’ UP! annual catalog. It features some big, bold greetings, as well as some simple 2-stamp images. When I saw this week’s sketch from Mojo Monday, I knew the Lovely Friends stamp set would be a perfect fit.
“Good Friends are Hard to Find” was stamped in Smoky Slate ink onto Whisper White card stock. I stamped it a second time in Powder Pink ink and cut out the word “FRIENDS” to place over the greeting to make it stand out. I chose a color combination from the 2017-2019 IN Color Combination Sheet (free to email subscribers). This combination is Smoky Slate, Powder Pink, So Saffron, Soft Sky, and Calypso Coral.
Larger flowers were stamped in Powder Pink and So Saffron. I stamped off first for the solid part of the flower, then stamped the outline at full strength in each color. Smaller flowers were stamped the same way in Calypso Coral ink. The final stamping was the Soft Sky cluster of dots and I accented the card with a few Soft Sky enamel dots.
The patterned paper is from the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack. You can see another card that I created with this paper HERE. I also added Calypso Coral and So Saffron card stock banners to the bottom of the card. Unfortunately, there wasn’t enough room to repeat the banners at the top of the card.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
