I received some new Stampin' Up! products last week and found some time to play with them today. I have a couple of new fav products that I want to share with you.......my new fav stamp set is Days of Gratitude (page 7 Holiday Mini), a new fav color is Pear Pizzazz and a new fav product is Basic Pearl Jewels. When you are looking for a finishing touch add one on and see just how perfect they are to finish a project. The Days of Gratitude stamp set is great for making standard sized cards like the one above and 3" x 3" as you will see in a later post. I can't wait to try the Days of Gratitude stamp set on a scrapbook page. This stamp set will be featured on my October's Stamping Technique & Scrapbook Club projects. I needed a birthday card to take with me to work tonight and this is the card I am giving the recepient. When I went to work on Tuesday evening I heard it was one of the real estate agent's birthdays. I hope she likes it. I had fun making it. When I was browsing in Mary Fish's blog the other day I came across a card she had made. I loved the way she stamped 4 leaves and positioned a circle over top of the stems. The idea for my card came from her and her cool card, you can view her card here. I left my stems a bit longer than hers. I like both of the effects of either having long or short stems give the cards.
