Raindrops on Roses and Whiskers on Kittens...

Bright copper kettles and warm woollen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favourite things...

And here are a few more:

As you know from this post, I'm trying out for the CAS Design Team on SplitCoast Stampers. The most recent challenge is to use three of our favourite things (not including paper and ink) on a card. My choices were: two-step stamping, fussy cutting (bet you NEVER would have guessed!) and Stampin' Dimensionals.

I stamped the image first in Pool Party and then used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to over-stamp in Island Indigo. I did the same with the leaves, using River Rock and Always Artichoke. The Always Artichoke was stamped off because I found it a bit too dark against the River Rock.

I fussy cut both the flower and the leaves and then adhered the flower with Stampin' Dimensionals. The leaves got just the teeniest dot of Mono-Multi glue. I wanted them on a different "level" so didn't use Stampin' Dimensionals, but I didn't want them completely stuck down. So, Mono-Multi was the solution.

Last but not least, I stamped the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes just below the blossom in Island Indigo.

What do you think?

STAMPS: Stippled Blossoms, Teeny Tiny Wishes
INK: Pool Party and Island Indigo
PAPERS: Whisper White Note Cards
ACCESSORIES: Stamp-a-ma-jig, Stampin' Dimensionals

Happy Stampin'!
