Full Of Gratitude

Saturday, June 29, 2013

June must have been my lucky month.
 I won two wonderful giveaways.  For today's card I am using stamps from Clearly BesottedStephanie generously gave away four stamp sets of the winner's choice.
This card features one of the sets I chose called Many Thanks.
 {you can never have enough birthday stamps!}

I stamped the hearts in what I think is a fun, fresh color combination.
One of the girls at school had on a striped shirt in these colors and I pulled out my notebook to jot it down.
To create the pink layer I traced around the die itself and cut it out to create a mat. 
 It's a little trick I picked up a long time ago from Sarah Gough
I was also the lucky winner of a giveaway on Elena's blog.  I won Clear and Simple Stamps sets and dies!  I have two cards so far with those sets.  You can see them here and here.
Thanks again Elena and Stephanie!

Cardstock: PTI White, WP9 Ballet Slippers
Stamps: Clearly Besotted Many Thanks
Ink: PTI Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores, Sweet Blush, Orange Zest, Scarlet Jewel, Versafine Onyx
Dies: PTI Mat Stack 3, Heart Border Die
