DefiningcardThis is one of those stamp sets in the Stampin’ Up! catalogue that I saw and _loved_ right away.  Of course, I needed to have both the sets – one set is the alphabet, the other is definitions.  They can stand alone, but I think they’re fabulous paired together! 

This is a smaller, square-ish card that uses a couple of my "fall back" colours.  I will often turn to the pale plum / perfect plum because I think they look great together…  The Stampin’ Up! Colour Coach (colour wheel) shows that they’re versions of the same colour so good for a monochromatic scheme. 

Anyhoooo…  I stamped 2 of the flowers from Polka Dots & Petals (a "go to" set for me) randomly on the pale plum card, stamping the outline flower using craft ink, which I then embossed with iridescent ice.  On the main image, I stamped the letters in pale plum classic ink, and stamped the definition in perfect plum craft ink, which was also embossed with iridescent ice.  Mounted this onto some perfect plum, but needed something "extra", so I dyed my small pretties flower using an aqua painter & pale plum classic refill ink.  Added the clear rhinestone brad from the pretties kit and I was done! 

Happy Thanksgiving!  (or, Happy Columbus Day if you’re in the states reading this!!).  Don’t forget that _today_ is actually the final day for the Simply Sent 20% off sale….I had a big brain fart (or, if I use my "mom" voice/language, a big brain "toot") earlier when I posted the final date for this sale (incorrectly) – I’ve since corrected it.
