Bitty Thanks


Today I have a very simple, one layer card to share. The flower stamp is from the stamp set Itty Bitty Bits, a set from the Summer Mini Catalog. The sentiment is from the stamp set Thank You Kindly--one of my well-loved sets from the main catalog.

I used the colors Only Orange and Melon Mambo. The centers of the flowers have a tiny drop of Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds glitter. Hint: to get the flowers lined up, I used my Wheel Guide (p 189). I stacked the two halves of the wheel guide on top of each other and then lined them up with the bottom edge of my card. When I stamped I put the bottom edge of my stamp against the edge of the wheel guide--kind of like using a stamp-a-ma-jig. It worked perfectly!

Stamps: Itty Bitty Bits, Thank You Kindly
Ink: Melon Mambo, Only Orange
Paper: Whisper White
Accessories: Only Orange grosgrain ribbon, Crystal Effects, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Stampin' Around Wheel Guide
