Sometimes I forget that I have customers who like soft colors. I usually use a lot of the Bright Colors or I use a mixture of Bright and Subtle colors. I rarely use just Subtles. That is a good thing though. It would be awful if everyone liked everything the same. How boring the world would be. Anyway, I made this card for those of you that like the soft look. I thought it actually came out ok (although a nice pop of Calypso Coral might look good too(if not better! Haha!)).
I used the stamp set called Grateful Bunch to make this card. This stamp set has a matching punch (yeah for punches!) called Blossom Punch. The sentiment is from Watercolor Wishes.

Thank goodness for Fridays because it is our Stamp Off Day. Ok, I have a confession. I am actually only scheduled to go to work one day a week. I go to the office on Tuesdays. That means that Monday is my Sunday. Tuesday is my Monday and Friday and the rest of the week is Saturday! Not a bad life if I do say so myself.
In any case, this week our Stamp Off challenge is a color challenge. I may have picked these colors but I usually get wrong who actually set each challenge so someone else may have chosen them. We picked these challenges a long time ago so I forget sometimes. Here are the colors:
Here is my card:
I used the stamp set called Grateful Bunch. This set has a matching punch called Blossom Bunch Punch. This set is kind of vintage, which we all know I can not do, but it can also be used other ways.
Let’s go see what Buffy and Jackie made using these colors. I am sure what ever they made, you will love!
I did a small mini class a few weeks ago with a brand new stamper. She was thinking about coming to our club meeting but had never stamped before so I wanted to give her a little lesson prior to coming to the meeting. This is one of the cards I had her make. It is simple, yet it is a nice card to share. Sometimes I forget that new stampers don’t need a lot of fancy techniques to get hooked. A little stamping with a punch is the perfect to convert someone to a stamper.
I used the stamp set called Grateful Bunch for this card. It has a matching punch for the flowers called Blossom Bunch. It was great to show her how you stamp and then punch to make the little flowers. She ended up coming to our club meeting and becoming a member. Perfect!
This is another card we made at our February Stamp Club meeting. It uses one of the 2016 Sale-a-bration stamps sets that you can get for FREE with a $50 order. You have to hurry if you want this set because it is retiring March 15th and you will not be able to get it after that.
This card also uses a new stamp set that is in the 2016 Occasions Catalog called Grateful Bunch. This set has a matching punch called Blossom Bunch Punch and you can buy them both in a bundle and save 15%. I have to admit, this stamp set did not catch my eye at first. Then I started seeing samples on Pinterest and I knew I had to have it. I love the dotted leaves and the flowers.
