The Gratitude Campaign is off to a great start! I just love how quickly people embrace something positive and uplifting!
My second card for the Gratitude Campaign is another one-layer card, using First Fruits and Fall Elegance, only this time the image is from First Fruits and the sentiment is from Fall Elegance. These two sets just may be my favorite Papertrey sets of all time.
The card uses the "sweet spot" in the lower right corner, as well as some shiny brown rhinestone pinecones to kick it up a notch. And white space. Glorious white space.
Update on the Memento Ink Issue...
I'm not happy. Not happy at all. The inks I blotted are now, I think, too dry. It's very frustrating because I have never had a problem with the old colors and fully expected the new ones to work just as wonderfully as the old ones. I'm going to email the manufacturer about this, especially because some of you have experienced the same problems.
If you choose to blot, be careful not to over-blot. But I tested mine as I blotted, and at no point before I stopped blotting did they stamp cleanly.
In frustration yesterday, I pulled out my VersaColor cubes...I have several dozen of these. They worked absolutely flawlessly with the clear stamps. But the ink is dense, opaque ink, not the clear ink of Memento. For most of my purposes, VersaColor, VersaMagic, and Brilliance inks---all of which work great with clear stamps---will suffice. But it's just so nice having an ink like Memento...as long as it works!
I will keep you posted.
