New Year, First Blog Post

The holidays were very busy for me and I have just gotten around to using some of my new crafty toys.  I thought I would use my new stamps to make a thank you card for one of the gifts I received.

To create this card I used my new Mama Elephant's Boutique Borders and Memento Rose Bud for the bottom layer.  Next I used a variety of inks from Memento and Hero Arts and stamps from my new Avery Elle Fabulous Florals set.  I really love the variety of flowers and greenery available with this set.  Next I used blending foam to create a mat for the sentiment that coordinates with the flowers.  The sentiment is from the Fabulous Florals set and was stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed with Ranger Liquid Platinum.  I used Lil Inker Designs' Stitched Mats: Long & Skinny Rectangles to cut out the sentiment.  To finish off I added a few of Pretty Pink Posh's sequins from the Springtime mix and the 4mm and 6mm Sparkling Clear.

I am entering this card into two challenges.  First is A Blog Named Hero's Using Small Stamps Challenge.

Next is the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge:  Something New.
