Its A Bloomin' Marvelous Day!

Today I have a little selection of cards for you. I had an idea in my head for a clean and simple card using this set (its such an easy set to make gorgeous clean and simple cards!!) But I got beat to it by the wonderful Mary Fish. So my design is pretty much the same as hers but I used a stamping off technique for a lighter look. Lets take a look at the set...

Almost the same as Mary's but the Basic Grey and Sahara Sand are stamped off for a lighter look

Want to know more about this "stamping off" technique I keep mentioning? Its simple! Ink up a stamp, stamp it on scrap paper, then stamp it onto your cardstock. Less ink on the stamp will mean a lighter shade when stamped. Its a great way to stretch the colours your already own (especially if you're starting out and don't own many colours! 

Happy Stampin',
