CCM Saturday Blog Hop - Happy You are Here!

Today's Create With Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop theme is our new favorite preorder stamp set. Surprisingly, I think my favorite stamp at the moment is the Sending Smiles set, because it is sooo versatile! There are eight occasions that it covers, not to mention the lovely flowers and stems/leaves that are included in the 22 piece set. So that's currently my favorite preorder stamp. Tomorrow it may be different, LOL.

I started by stamping the stems/leaves in Mossy Meadow on Basic White cardstock (3-5/8" x 4-7/8") with some stamped off. The Orchid Oasis flowers were added next, and a strip of coordinating DSP (3/4" x 4-7/8") was adhered to the bottom edge. If you look closely, you can see a narrow strip of glimmer paper along the top of the DSP, too.

The whole thing was matted on Orchid Oasis cardstock (3-7/8" x 5-1/8") and then on the card base. I used the Foam Sheets behind the white die cut 'Sending' so it would pop off the orchid 'Sending' mat. I stamped the 'birthday wishes' and die cut it to be tucked under, and added some butterflies to complete the card. I'm really loving this new In Color. Well, I love them all, but this one had my attention today!
