Where have I been . . .

No, not on a fabulous vacation. Just buried in paperwork, and budgets, and busy planning banquets. Ugh!

Hopefully the rush is over now and things will start to calm down again so I can get back to my crafting and blogging because this Friday (May 15th) is another release for Clear & Simple Stamps and I have lots of projects to share with you. One of the new sets that will be released on Friday is Gratitude. Here's a sneak peak of the set.

This is a really fun set to work with. I love that it has both the silhouette stamp of the flowers and the line detail stamp. For today's card I used both of the flower stamps.

I stamped the line detail flowers in Kiwi Kiss on white cardstock and cut them out. Then I stamped the silhouette flowers on a white block in Kiwi Kiss. After I colored the cut out flowers I mounted them to the white block with pop dots and matted the piece with black and yellow. The card base is white with a mat of black. On the bottom half of the card is some patterned paper with a scalloped edge. For the finishing touch I tied a ribbon and bow around the card.

For more sneak peaks, check out the other design team members blogs (they're linked in my sidebar) and the Clear & Simple Stamps company blog.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you're all having a wonderful week.
