Dandy notecard set

Happy Saturday everyone! I've been playing with some new stamps I received in the mail yesterday from Practicing Creativity Designs. Fun, high-quality, clear images that stamp like a dream! And I'm a sucker for those dandelion images too. *wink*


I picked out six colors and their corresponding darker shades to create these notecards.
1. Lemon Tart/Summer Sunrise
2. Aqua Mist/Hawaiian Shores
3. Sweet Blush/Berry Sorbet
4. Melon Berry/Terracotta Tile
5. Spring Moss/Ripe Avocado
6. Lavender Moon/Plum Pudding
Then I stamped the fun background image of overlapping circles on each card base in three different ways. Using the darker ink, I stamped both dandelion images on Stamper's Select white CS and added the teeny tiny seeds to look like they were blowing in thew wind! A quick sentiment in black and they were done!


I really like the sentiment here, because the inside of the cards can be "Thank You", "Get Well", "Happy Birthday", "thinking of You", etc. I think I may actually give these to my mom for Mother's Day as a gift.

Thanks for stopping by today, hope you have a great day!
