Have you any stamps that give you more trouble than you thought they might once you got them home and inked? This cute little set I imagined doing all sorts of things with and yet I always seem to struggle with it just a bit.
One of the ideas I have in my "try it" folder is a color combination of tomato red and green. I thought of this set instantly when I came across the color inspiration and I've finally had some time to put it together! I've used my lime green/silver tinsel embossing powder and the designs really sparkle for lots of fun! One of my favorite scrap ideas is to use the strips I've trimmed for panel cards--especially if they have embossing. The texture and the patterns are so unique and add a special touch to anything.
These are the last two cards to round out a batch I'm sending to mom-in-law to have on hand! Just a little three-legged frog day gift!
*[oh, and if you're interested in more cards with this set, just search the Hero Arts Flickr group for the tag CL400] I just thought of another idea for this set: a bandana set in bright colors for DD...what do you think? Any other ideas?!
