Every now and then I like to get out an old stamp set and really put it through its paces. I still love this Stampin’ Up! Simply Sweet set, one of the first SU! sets I ever bought, and I gave it a good work out with multiple cards I made for my “for sale” basket at work. Most of the cards were similar in style, and I managed to use up the last of my BasicGrey Urban Prairie paper in the making. I like the way the colors came together on this one. The blue is SU!’s Pool Party.
I made a couple of cards in this style, as well, and finished off some old My Mind’s Eye Kalaidoscope paper. The Cuttlebug Bloom Dots embossing folder is one of the first I bought and it seemed to go rather well with the paper.
The images are stamped on Flourishes Classic White cardstock, colored with Copic markers, and glitter added.
I very much enjoy reaching to the back of the drawer, so to speak, and pulling something to the front once in a while. I hope to do this more often and use up some older supplies at the same time. Better that than tossing it out, yes? Thank you for dropping in!
