I received this new Tropical Leaves
stamp just before its release as part of the Among the Stars
release and just as we were leaving to go visit our Grands in TX. So now that we're back, I was excited to play with it. Here's my first stamping of it.
Starting with an A2 white cardstock panel, I masked and then stamped my leaves, choosing mostly the ones in this set that have 2-step stamping, and mixed my inks up, stamping both tone-on-tone, and mixing colors. I also stamped some dots in the white spaces between the leaves. After removing my masks, I then overstamped my sentiments in Navy ink, trimmed the panel slightly to allow part of the card base to show on the sides, and also added some enamel dots to match my colors and mimic the dots in the stamped panel. I love the cool feel that these colors give, and thought these sentiments worked well with them!
We were gone about 2 weeks, and I usually have a rough time getting back into the swing of making cards, but this set made that transition easy and fun! I'll be back again soon with some cards using the new July Card Kit!
