When I ordered a few sets of kid-themed stamps from Clear and Simple Stamps on the recommendation of my friend Susie Berker, the nice folks at CSS threw in a set of Thank You stamps for free. Isn't that sweet?!? You should know that I'm extremely picky about clear stamps, but CSS makes high-quality photopolymer clear stamps that are simply adorable and a delight to use.
I needed to make some thank you cards, so I pulled out Pocket Silhouettes (one of my very favorite SU sets EVER!) and the "you are too kind" stamp from CSS. Using the Gina K paper that Bahb sent me, I made a color-varied set of 4.25" square cards that had me giggling with glee at midnight!
My colors were based on what tiny gemstones I had on hand. These are an amber color, so I used Brilliance beige for the flowers and Palette dark chocolate for the sentiment. Warm and wonderful, don't you think?
These hot-pink gemstones worked well with Brilliance orchid and Palette Noir ink.
Brilliance lavender ink got clear gemstones...all my purple gemstones are too red to go with lavender.
Brilliance ice blue and pale blue gemstones make this the most subtle of the set.
Then I went with Brilliance Mediteranean blue and dark blue gemstones for a bolder look.
And of course, Brilliance rocket red with red gemstones really stands out.
Can I just say that having lots and lots of gemstones in lots and lots of sizes is a major blessing? My life would be so dull without bling....
