I tried...

Really I did.

Tried to use another stamp set that is.

It was stamp night at my house on Friday night and I had all good intentions of using a different stamp set (I didn't even take it out to where we were stamping) but it just wasn't working so I went and pulled it out again. I promise my next post will be using another set though and hopefully will be tomorrow. I'm sure you realise the stamp set I'm talking about is 'Live Your Dreams' from the current Summer Mini Catalogue.

I did however use my newly created 'In Color' Markers, thanks to Carol Dunstan for her tutorial ,for the 2 cards I ended up making. I won't tell you how many hours we were stamping for but it really was pretty poor that I only made 2 cards. I guess when you have others to chat too and cuppa's to drink and Rocky Road slice to eat along with some other yummy goodies I just have to be greatful that I did get 2 cards made.....hahaha.

Onto the 2 cards I made.....

For the first one I've used a colour combination of Wild Wasabi, Soft Sky & Blue Bayou.

Live Your Dreams 12

Supplies:
Stamp sets: Live Your Dreams
Card: Wild Wasabi, Soft Sky, Whisper White, Afternoon Tea DSP
Ink: Wild Wasabi inkpad, Soft Sky, Blue Bayou & Wild Wasabi Markers (as per Carol's tutorial)
Accessories: Soft Sky double-stitched ribbon, Urban West Rub-ons.

Now for the second card I have used Groovy Guava, Soft Sky and Chocolate Chip.

Live Your Dreams 11

I do like Groovy Guava but it's probably one of my least used In Colors so far, however I do like this colour combination. I think that's the key though with Groovy Guava. You really need to find that right colour combination but I guess that can be said about any colour. I'll have to make more effort to use more of it before it retires at the end of March.

Supplies:
Stamp sets: Live Your Dreams
Card: Groovy Guava, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Afternoon Tea DSP
Ink: Groovy Guava inkpad, Chocolate Chip Marker, Groovy Guava & Wild Wasabi markers (as per Carol's tutorial)
Accessories: Groovy Guava double-stitched ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals, Paper Piercing template & tool (Tool Kit)

Now don't forget my next post will definitely have a different stamp set although I do hope you have enjoyed the cards I've made using the lovely 'Live Your Dreams' stamp set.

You are too funny Nikki! Love all you have done with this set - but.... it is time to move on! SU has so many great stamp sets - time to move outside your comfort zone!! I challenge you to use another set for your next post... Look forward to what you come up with.

Your friend,
Jo
