I thought I would post this card I made today because it was made using the retiring hostess stamp set, Simply Soft. I was experiementing with coloring techniques when I made this card. I stamped the flowers on Crumb Cake card stock and with Basic Black ink. Then I colored them in using watercolor pencils and a blender pen. The Crumb Cake cardstock accepts the ink a little differently than Whisper White or Very Vanilla, so it took a little time to adjust. The greetings are from the "Delightful Dozen" and "Thank You Kindly" stamp sets. The finished size of this card measures 3"x6". The new catalog will be live on June 1st, so if you need anything that is retiring from the old catalog, you had better hurry because before you know it, it will be history.
