Stampin' Up! Sweet Sayings preview

We are gearing up for the release of our Occasions Catalog in just a few days! One of the stamp sets that has already found a home with me is a set called Suite Sayings, containing an assortment of sentiments for use throughout the year. My favorite is this one:

"Thanks to you, I grew up loved."

To create the background, simply create a mask using a scrap of thin card stock or vellum. Lightly sponge on color and add stamped images, if you wish. 

Leaves colored with Stampin' Write Markers

This card was based on a card shared by 'biggened' on Pinterest. For info on masking, check out this tutorial on Splitcoaststampers.
