Thinking of You

Once in a while I bring out of retirement a stamp (Thinking of You), to place on a card.   How often do we need to express to someone they are in our thoughts.  I know you probably have someone who needs a "hug in the mail".  We chat online, on the phone, email, text, etc...... but nothing replaces a hand written card.

Stamp Sets:  Just Believe
Ink:  Daffodil Delight, More Mustard,  Early Espresso, Cajun Craze
Cardstock:  More Mustard, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Cajun Craze
And More:  Vintage Brads

Technique Tip:  To mask off the Sun, punch out of a sticky note a circle. Stick it on your cardstock where you want your sun/ moon.  Ink your brayer in the lightest ink color ( for this card Daffodil Delight).  Brayer the entire card.  Ink your brayer in the medium in color ( More Mustard) Brayer the 2/3 on down, leaving the upper 1/3 Daffodil Delight.  Ink your brayer in the darkest color (Cajun Craze).  Brayer the bottom 1/3. Stamp your large image overlapping the sun/moon with Early Espresso. Reink and restamp 2 more times moving the stamp lower each time.
