Kind and Caring Thoughts Hostess Set

Kind and Caring Thoughts is a lovely Level 3 Hostess set and it caught my eye right away when the new catalog came out. It also has quite a good assortment of sentiment stamps in the set also! I was so happy to get this set myself!

Today I'm showcasing several swaps I received at the Stampin' Up! Convention in August that use this set. The first one is from Rhonda Glaze; it is so soft and pretty. She use Apricot Appeal ink for the flowers and Soft Suede ink for the sentiment. A band of Soft Suede Grosgrain Polka Dot Ribbon with a 5/16" white brad in the center encircles the top layers. The base card is Apricot Appeal cardstock that was folded and then die cut with the Scalloped Square Die and the Big Shot. This is such a soft and delicate card. So pretty!

The second card using this set goes a totally different way. Bold colored flowers of Rich Razzleberry and Dusty Durango combine with soft So Saffron flowers and a multicolored layout to make a festive birthday card. Three additional Rich Razzleberry flowers were stamped, cut out and showy Dazzling Diamonds glitter added then adhered over the same color flowers for a 3-D effect with lots of bling!

A card base of Rich Razzleberry is layered with So Saffron and Mellow Moss cardstock then tied with a Very Vanilla 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, knotted in the center.

This is a card I received in our SSUS organized swap at convention from Nikki Bond from Georgia. It's so pretty! I love it Nikki, Thanks!

The third card with this set is from Mary Petzoldt; this was a convention swap also. Mary used Kind and Caring Thoughts, the sentiment from Refuge and Strength and the Sympathy stamp from Close as a Memory set. These stamps sure go together nicely!

The flower is stamped on Very Vanilla cardstock then covered with White Vellum which has been stamped with the verse in Black Stazon ink. This is layered on Pale Plum then Basic Black cardstock.

The Sympathy was stamped on Vanilla cardstock then layered on black cardstock also. Both were layered onto Rich Razzleberry then onto a black card.

These cards all use the very same flower stamp but each artist has achieved her own different look by using different colors, layouts and accessories. Isn't that the fun thing about stamping and papercrafting? Everyone creates their own look! How great is that!

Thanks for visiting! Have some fun stampin' when you can!
