You Overwhelm Me with Your Awesomeness!

Happy Monday!  You overwhelm me with your awesomeness today!  Really!  Go look in the mirror! Are you not the very picture of incredibleness?  You can handle whatever you encounter today!  I can tell by just looking at you!  Go take on the world!

I needed to give and receive a little pep talk today.  It has been a discouraging week in my corner of the world, but I believe we should be doing more to build each other up, instead of trying to drag everyone down to our level of misery. So I decided to create something a bit up-lifting while using the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches:

 and the colour palette from Pals Paper Arts:

And here is what resulted from that happy marriage:

  • I love those three colours, Hello Honey, Crumb Cake and Blackberry Bliss together!  It's such a sophisticated look, with a little splash of fun as well.
  • I used the Blackberry Bliss Honeycomb design from the Moonlight DSP stacks, as well as the polka dotted Crumb Cake pattern from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stacks for the background panels.
  • I love how the Venetian Crochet Trim on the Crumb Cake panel takes it up a notch or two!  It softens the graphic design of the Flower Patch stamp set images.
  • And how about that Flower Patch Photopolymer Stamp set.  It is so much fun to use with the  overlay images that are so easy to position in just the right spot.  Make sure, on the larger solid stamps that they are free of dust and grease so that you get a solid image.  In my case, it took a second attempt to get a good solid image, mostly due to dust specks on the stamp. Try stamping your image with your cardstock on a Stampin' Pierce Mat for better coverage as well.
