Being laid up with a stress fracture in my foot is finally giving me a chance to play with Stampin’ Up products from the January to June 2022 Mini Catalog and the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. When I first saw each of these stamp sets, I knew I had to have them. The problem was, I have been so busy this spring that other stamp sets took precedence over the “In The Moment” stamp set. When I was challenged to use “something old, something new”, I knew exactly which stamp set to use for the “something old.” Then I perused my shelf for “something new”. My eyes fell on “Stepping Stones” stamp set which has really great quotations. I knew that they would pair together well.
As you can see, this was a pretty simple card. I started with an Orchid Oasis card base. I stamped the image of the woman from “In The Moment” in the center of a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of Very Vanilla with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored it using Stampin’ Write markers – Sweet Sorbet, So Saffron, Tahitian Tide, Orchid Oasis, and Soft Suede. I also used SU900 from the Natural Tones Stampin’ Blends collection for her skin. I then stamped the sentiment from “Stepping Stones” in Orchid Oasis. Finally I stamped the stars from the “Days To Remember” stamp set in Daffodil Delight. Afterwards I wondered if I should have only stamped one star. Let me know what you think in the comments.
