Soft Summer II

Here's my next Soft Summer card...very simple and easy. This one uses the Two-Step Stamps: the outline image is stamped first then the second solid stamp which fills in the outline is stamped, hence the Two-Step name. Soft Summer is in the Occasions Mini which expires at the end of this month. :-(

This is a very simple card that can be made in a short period of time and yet it is very nice for a variety of occasions. The card base is Sahara Sand which is stamped in Basic Brown ink. A length of yummy 5/8" Chocolate Chip Grosgrain ribbon is tied around the cardfront and tied.

The outline image is stamped in Basic Brown on Whisper White cardstock. The second step is inking the solid image with markers; I used Cameo Coral, Close to Cocoa, Artichoke and So Saffron. Using my Stamp-a-ma-jig for placement (what a wonderful invention!!), I overstamped the color into the outline. I used some markers to fill in a few places like the lighter portions of the leaves. This was then layered onto a piece of Cameo Coral cardstock, adhered to the card and the sentiment stamped below.

Stamps: Soft Summer; sentiment from Hugs and Wishes (retiring)
Ink: Basic Brown pad; Cameo Coral, Close to Cocoa, Always Artichoke So Saffron Stampin' Write Markers
Paper: Sahara Sand, Cameo Coral and Whisper White card stock
Accessories: Ticket Corner Punch, Chocolate Chip 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon.

Thanks for visiting! I hope you've had a really good weekend!
