Thinking of You.....

     There are a lot of changes when you make a move to a new State....giving up visiting your favorite stamp stores is one of those changes.  What a thrill when through Splitcoaststampers I learned from Jenny Gropp about a store not far from my new home.  I made my second visit there today and spent over an hour wandering and looking.  This card was made using a new stamp I purchased by Outlines Rubber Stamp Company.  Jenny does tutorials for the Outlines newsletter as well as working at the store and I was able to see several ways to use this stamp, but more important I learned about a wonderful dimensional silicone to pop the petals of the flower up.  Hopefully in the second picture below you can see how nicely this gives dimension to my flower.
     What fun it was playing with this stamp and I must warn you that I will probably do a few more cards to post as I keep thinking of new things to do with it.  This card will be entered in the Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge this where they are looking for cards that are "Thinking of You" themed......how convenient that I needed to make a card for that very purpose.

  4. Sherry, this is like witnessing a bloom opening to the sun the way the petals curl back - just so natural looking and in such beautiful colors!! I love the way you let the flower take main focus, and the flourish leads the eye to "thinking of you" - a very special card!!
    Glad you are starting to feel at home after the move!!
