Season of Friendship-Step It Up swap

This is the last of MY contributions to this swap. I really want to do another swap like this with the new catty stuff! And the retiring list just came out for the current catty, and holy cow! We are going to have TONS of room for new stuff!! I am so excited! Sadly, this set is on the list, so hurry up and order it before it is gone!! We have until May 31 to order retiring sets.

Ok, so about these cards, lol! I just love how this turned out, lovely just as it is. Amazing how paper and ink alone can be so lovely. I did some generation stamping with the leaves, stamping twice without re-inking between. I love how the flowers drift off the main image piece off onto the card base and drift off the corner.
  • Stamps: Season of Friendship
  • Ink: Old Olive, Early Espresso, Pretty in Pink
  • Paper: Pretty in Pink, Old Olive, Whisper White
  • Other: Signo white gel pen, Designer Label punch

And with just a few extras, it brings this up a notch! A bit of embellishment and some dimensionals, and see what  difference that makes!
  • Early Espresso 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon $5.95
  • Pearls Basic Jewels  $4.95
  • Moonlight Smooch Pearlized Accent Ink $4.95
  • Stampin' Dimensionals $3.95
And all of the ink and paper are in the Getting Started collection! I really tried hard this time. The Color Coach helped a lot, it actually has suggested combos that are labeled Getting Started. Did you know that? I didn't until I was doing this swap!

Cute card! I love the falling blossoms and the way you stamped and restamped the leaves. Great design! :)

Sad to see this set leaving - I love the stepped up version, and the dab of smooch in the center of the flowers! I love, love the pink/brown color combination!!

I have this one! Soo cute! I never did buy this set. But I do love it.

Your cards remind me of cherry blossoms falling to the ground. Love the color combo for this set of cards.
