Marrying Stamp Sets

Hi!

I hope you had a great week and are now looking to get inky this weekend! :)

Here's a card....another one that I found on my computer that I never put on my blog. I don't know what's going on with me? Where's my head? Oh well, found it and now it's here...
One of my favorite things to do with SU! stamp sets is to use multiple sets on one creation.
I like mixing and matching them up.
For this card I used the set Just Believe for the flower stem and sentiment and the set Mixed Bunch for the flower (it's one of the middles stamps). I stamped it in real red ink on Natural White c/s and cut it out.
The flower center is my favorite on this card. I have these filigree brads hoarded up. I love these things and never use them b/c I LOVE them :)
All of this, I stamped on a piece of Natural White c/s that I ran through my Big Shot with the Labels Collection framelits. I added some real red satin ribbon behind that and then some paper piercing and faux stitching with my white gel pen to the corners of the bashful blue c/s.
I sent this card (yes, I actually mailed a card! :) to my SU! demo (and former Upline, when I was a Demo), Beth. Along with my check for a recent order......YAY! I left the inside blank for her. I usually do this if I mail a card to a fellow paper crafter. I just put a post it note inside to say what I want and leave the card for them to use.

Oh well, I hope you got some kind of inspiration from this little card today.
Have a wonderful day and thank you so much for stopping by!

Until next time...
Blessings...
