Happy Big Day!

Hello Crafters,

Can you believe that it is Thursday?  I sure am amazed at how the time flies at the crafting table.  I have been playing with ink and paper for quite a few hours today.  It has been good to just play around and not have a deadline in mind.

I made two cards with the Chalk Talk stamp set and Framelits.  I really enjoy working with the All Abloom DSP stack.  It is so versatile and pretty.  Just the thing for today's cards.

I love the color pink, so Blushing Bride made the perfect base for this arrangement.  The Strawberry Slush Thick Baker's Twine really makes it pop!

Stamp set:  Chalk Talk (Wood #130631 or Clear #130634)
Paper:  Blushing Bride (#131198), Mossy Meadow (#133676), Pistachio Pudding (#131294), Strawberry Slush (#131295), Whisper White (#100730) and All Abloom (#133703)
Ink:  Pistachio Pudding (#131177) and Strawberry Slush (#131178), 2013-2015 In Color Stampin' Write Markers (Strawberry Slush) (#131260)
Misc:  Chalk Talk Framelits (#129983), Strawberry Slush Thick Baker's Twine (#135637), Banner punch (#133519) and Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430)

I had stamped the centerpiece of this card and knew that I had to work with Island Indigo and Pistachio Pudding.  This was just too much fun playing around with all the colors and shapes.

Stamp set:  Chalk Talk (Wood #130631 or Clear #130634)
Paper:  Daffodil Delight (#119683), Island Indigo (#122923), Pistachio Pudding (#131294), Whisper White (#100730) and All Abloom (#133703)
Ink:  Island Indigo (#126986)
Misc:  Chalk Talk Framelits (#129983), Hearts a Flutter Framelits (#130159), Banner punch (#133519), Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) and up-cycled ribbon
