Fresh Cuts & Circle of Friendship

Love that new Fresh Cuts set! On this card I used the large collage-type stamp from Fresh Cuts and inked it with the various colors using Sponge Daubers (those are SO handy), then I "rock and rolled" it on Not Quite Navy for a little darker edge. Next I stamped it on the River Rock floral Designer Paper from the Porcelain Prints collection, (tip: this gives depth and color variation in the background), cut it out and distressed the edges with the tool from the Cutter Kit. This was layered on Groovy Guava. For the card itself, Wild Wasabi is the base with a wide vertical strip of Blue Bayou and horizontal strip of River Rock that is stamped with Certainly Celery (which makes it match the Wild Wasabi color when stamped on River Rock). A strip of Blue Bayou cardstock underlays the Groovy Guava ribbon which makes it "pop".

The "rubberstamper" stamp from Circle of Friendship is stamped on Groovy Guava and again on River Rock. I punched out the inner circle of River Rock with the 1/2" punch (it just matches!) and layered it on the guava punched with the 1" circle (that just matches too!), then with Dimensionals layered that on a 1 1/4" then 1 3/8" punched circles of Blue Bayou. I added Crystal Effects to just the center to give it dimension. This was added to the lower left corner to balance and finish off the card.

Don't forget the June specials on both the Fresh Cuts and Circle of Friendship "bundles". I love specials so I can save money (for more stamps!). LOL! : )

Very pretty. I need a card to make for my stamp club and I am still trying to find the "right" one! I love how you used several colors with this one!
