Little things ...

This is a stamp set I haven't bought yet, and I'm not completely sure why! It is certainly my "style" if I could be said to have one. I think I simply forgot to add it to my initial order from this catalogue. Anyway, I borrowed it from Gail the other night to see it in action so to speak, and was pretty happy with the results.

By the way, the set consists of six stamps, four of which are small plant silhouettes, and two small phrases.

Firstly this, which is actually a CASE from something Liz was making ... I stole, uh, borrowed her idea, and dressed it up a little with the Eyelet Border Punch.

The stamps in this set are quite small, but this can be very effective in some cases as shown here. I tossed up whether to add something to the top half of the card but decided I liked it as it is.

Supplies used:

Stamp set/s: Pocket Silhouettes

Ink: Regal Rose, Rose Red
Cardstock: Regal Rose, Whisper White, Rose Red
Other: Large Oval Punch, Small Oval Punch, Eyelet Border Punch

The second card came out quite well, I thought. This time I stamped a couple of the silhouette stamps a number of times to create a bit of a garden. Again, the top part of the card has been intentionally left blank, as I kind of like the unbalanced look.
