Petal Parade in Bright Colors

Card in primary colors using Stampin'UP!'s Petal Parade Sale-a-bration Stamp Set

Is anyone else ready for spring? The temperature in southern Wisconsin this morning was minus 5! Time for some cheery colors.

These three strong colors:
  *Pacific Point
  *Daffodil Yellow and
  *Real Red
are bright enough to bring a much needed smile. 

Stampin'UP! stamp set: Four YouDo you like the font on this sentiment? The "hello" is from a stamp set called Four You. This set has 4 versatile sentiments in very stylish fonts.

This set is a nice addition to a sentiment collection 
- or -
 a great set if you're just starting out.

The flower images and the scallop underscoring the sentiment are both from a Sale-a-bration set called Petal Parade. The scallops are separated from the word by a thin strip of black paper.

Sale-a-bration starts tomorrow - WooHoo!

Tip for lining up stamps 

Here are a couple of STAMPING TIPS:  

First: Here's a tip for lining up images 
If you use clear mount stamps . . . Line them up on the block BEFORE you stamp on the paper.

Second: to get multiple colors on a single stamp
color directly on the stamp with your markers.
