Welcome to the 12th stop on the June 2010 VC_Rocks blog hop! VC_Rocks is a virtual celebration of the new catalog and annual convention of Stampin' Up!, my absolute favorite rubber stamp company! You may have arrived here from Lisa's Crafty Place where you saw her gorgeous tile coasters. If you didn't, and would like to see them, along with lots of other terrific artwork created by my fellow Rockers, you can start at the beginning by going here. There is so much to be excited about with the release of the 2010-11 catalog and idea book from Stampin' Up! Fresh, new colors, a wide variety of stamps, and fabulous new accessories from punches to ribbon to embossing folders. But a few of our favorite things are retiring at the same time. So before we put the current catalog away, I'd like to share a card made with one of my favorite retiring stamp sets, Embrace Life. Not only is this stamp set retiting but so are a couple of the colors used on this card, Cameo Coral and Mellow Moss.
Stamp images on Whisper White card stock with Mellow Moss ink. Color the images by picking up ink from the lid of Mellow Moss, Always Artichoke, and Cameo Coral pads with a blender pen. Sponge Cameo Coral ink around the edge and adhere to Always Artichoke card stock mat. Card base is Mellow Moss with a layer of Ginger Blossom DSP on the left. Tie Mellow Moss taffeta ribbon around matted image and adhere to card front. The card design was cased from Sharon Rogers.

Pretty card! I have some small pieces of the dotted (like yours) that I could use with the plain. Another duh moment! Thanks for sharing - love your coloring of the flowers too.

It's a shame that set and mellow moss are retiring. They obviously make a great combination to create a very pretty card.
