Good Thoughts

Too Kind is the perfect stamp set to show off the coordination of using Calypso Coral and Crisp Cantaloupe together.  In this beautiful 2-step stamping stamp set, there are separate stamps for both shades in the flowers, and a separate stamp for the Pear Pizzazz stems.  And there are two wonderful sentiments as well.

  • I've used Baked Brown Sugar as the card base.  Next layer is Calypso Coral cardstock run through the Big Shot using the Honeycomb Embossing Folder.  A 1"x5-1/2" piece of Whisper White cardstock is also run through the Big Shot using one of the Finishing Touches Edgelits.
  • Next I added a piece of Calypso Coral 3/4" Chevron Ribbon – you're going to want this ribbon in every color!  It's so versatile and trendy.
  • Begin any 2-step stamping with the lightest color.  In this case, I stamped the Pear Pizzazz stems first so that I could properly place the flowers on top.  Then I stamped the larger images in Crisp Cantaloupe followed by the smaller images in Calypso Coral.  Don't worry too much about how perfectly you line them up.  Just stamp the center over the stem and it'll look great!  This is the easiest watercoloring you'll ever do!
  • Sentiment is stamped over the flower stem with Baked Brown Sugar ink.
  • I felt like the corner needed a little somethin' so did some paper piercing.  It's so simple when you have the Essentials Paper-Piercing Grid to help line up all the holes!
