Hello!

Hello friends, it's Dana again with my second post using the Succulent and Memo Stamp Sets!

Have you guys also seen those palm leaf patterns popping up in your Pinterest feeds? So pretty and perfect for summer! Well, if you take a look at the Succulent Stamp Set, there is one succulent plant that inspired me to make my own.

I inked up the stamp with watermark ink and stamped it all over my aqua card base and also on the flap of a matching envelope. It's a simple step to customize your mail and give your recipient a sneak peek at what's inside.

Since I wanted the design to be light and summery, I used white pigment ink to stamp the "Important Memo" design onto a warm kraft cardstock. The "Hello" sentiment was stamped twice, first with white ink, than - a little offset - in teal to create a shadow effect. There are some great sentiments included in the stamp set to fill the gap in "Hello" but this time, I decided to go for a tiny punched butterfly, decorated with a sparkly enamel dot. Before adhering the memo panel to my cardbase, I cut and embossed two strips of pattern paper for a pop of color inbetween the layers.

My second project is quite simple to recreate. I die cut a pillow box packaging from watercolor paper and had fun sprinkling and swirling green and teal watercolors around. After resembling the box, I decorated it with pattern paper and a tag, stamped with the "thanks" sentiment from the Memo Stamp Set. Somehow the ink got a little uneven from waiting a few seconds longer than usual between inking the stamp and the actual stamping. So, that particular letterpress-style look wasn't planned but I love the rougher texture on the letters and will surely keep this in mind for future masculine projects.

I had so much fun playing with these stamp sets! Hope some of my projects help you get started on some ideas for your own cards. Thanks so much for joining me this week!

Dana
