New Stamps

Like I said before we have been quite busy with the holidays and we have all been sick in my house, but last night I finally felt well enough to stamp a card. I think a little rubber therapy helps you heal faster. So here is my first card of 2008.

I decided to use one of the new stamp sets Embrace Life and the new Ginger Blossom Designer Series Paper. I pulled my card stock colors from the DP,and used Ruby Red as my base color. The next panel is the Ginger Blossom DP mounted on some Old Olive. I stamped the two flowers using Brilliance Graphite Black on Papertrey Ink White card stock. I have found that combination of ink and CS to work well for using my Copics. Unfortunately when I stamped the bottom flower I caught an edge of the stamp so I had to think of a pretty way to cover up my boo-boo. I think the Cranberry Crisp stitched ribbon with the joy charm fit the bill quite nicely. I sanded the silver charm slightly and colored it with one of my Copics to give it the green hue. I attached the charm to the ribbon using some silver wire works. Finally, I stamped the sentiment on Old Olive and attached the main image.
