I’ve gone through my shelves and pulled all the sets that are on the Last Chance list. There’s a decent-sized stack, and they’re sitting rather forlornly together in a basket on the floor of my stamp studio (the Room Formerly Known As Sara’s Bedroom). I’ve got plans for those stamps this month, and since I’ll be away for a bit in June I thought I’d better get cracking:
- Eastern Blooms and Sincere Salutations stamp sets
- Whisper White, Early Espresso and Pink Pirouette card stock
- Early Espresso, Pink Pirouette and Regal Rose Stampin’ Write markers
- Early Espresso Classic ink pad
- Pretty in Pink 1/8 inch taffeta ribbon
- Pearl Jewels
- Frost White Shimmer paint and the Aquapainter
I cased this card from Alli Ohran, making a very few minor changes. I don’t use a lot of Crystal Effects because in Hawaii it seems to take an eternity to dry, and I’m not a patient person so I stick my finger in it and smudge it and get all cranky about it. Well. There’s a self-disclosure for you!! Anyway, I used Frost White instead and although you don’t see it well in the photograph I assure you it is there.
Cherry Blossoms are such romantic flowers, appearing in almost misty pink clouds that linger briefly on the trees and then begin drifting away. I think pink is a very romantic color, too, so this card really gets my “awww gee whiz” feeling going. To me, it fits to keep such a romantic image simple, although it would be easy to imagine this dressed up with lots of layers, background stamping, vintage lace and bling. Another time. Maybe.
