The new Spring challenge over at Clearly Besotted gave me the perfect excuse to break open one of my newly purchased stamp sets from their April release. Then I found these yummy colours at Color Throwdown - reminds me of sugared almonds.
So that's where I started with my new stamps and those gorgeous pastel colours.
The main image of the stamp came together really quickly and I knew I wanted to use the banner for the sentiment. But the Easter stamp was too large and I really liked the font, so a way had to be found. At first I tried a circle punch that fit nicely around the stamp, but it slipped when I was pressing down and one edge turned out straight. That gave me the idea to straighten the other side too and as I liked the result I stuck with this happy accident.
A very simple and CAS card which I found quite appealing. So I made another in a different colourway:
And then, as I often do, I made another:
Stamps: Clearly Besotted, Pretty Petals, Fresh Flowers
Die: Clearly Besotted, Tag Along
Inks: Card 1 - Memento, cantaloupe; Ranger Distress, bundled sage
Card 2 - Memento, rhubarb stalk, pistachio
Card 3 - Memento, dandelion, tangelo, bamboo leaves
Wonder which is your favourite colour combo?
