These use a returning stamp - the wonderful Dahlia. There are not too many background stamps in my collection which are returning so I started with this image for a full colour coverage.
Dapper Denim - such a fabulous blue. I love it.
Peekaboo Peach - teams beautifully with Pumpkin Pie too
And for some reason I don't have one of Sweet Sugarplum on it's own so here it is teamed with a three tone version. I think the Flamingo, Peach and Sugarplum together remind me of Orchards. I was really happy with how this turned out.
I had never tried applying ink to the stamp using a sponge dauber but I learnt that tip from a similar card done by Kylie Bertucci. You can see her card here.
The banner from Number of Years is heat embossed with silver onto the black cardstock before cutting with the framelits, and sadly the expressions thinlits are also Retiring - which I misunderstood or I wouldn't have used them for the display, however, I think they suit this layout.
I have one more to show off 3 of the colours, and it uses one of the floral emblems from a new set coming with the new catalogue- Love & Affection. I'll have more of this set and the colours to show you in the next few days.
I Just love these colours together,
Hope you find some time this weekend to be creative,
