Egads.....My 2nd Post of the Day!

Yikes...!  That's a little too much posting, ya know??  Probably accounts for the reason why after only four months of blogging I have over 100 posts!! Crazy, crazy, crazy...

But, on to my card... this time for One Layer Wednesday.    The challenge this week is to stamp three images and then a sentiment.  Lately my favorite way to stamp three of something is to do some 2nd and 3rd generation stamping.  I just love the look.  And my favorite stamps to accomplish this type of stamping?? Stampin Up!'s Echoes of Kindness set.  I absolutely adore the line drawn images in the set.  All three of the floral images are just beautiful and the sentiment is lovely, as well.  One of these days I have to try coloring them!  I didn't use the sentiment for the card, though.  Instead I used a sentiment from the There She Goes set, Bloom.  Inks are from Close to My Heart, Autumn Terracotta and New England Ivy for an autumnal feel.  Cardstock is PTI's Vintage Cream.  I added a few rhinestones for a bit of bling.

Thanks for taking a peek...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Vintage Cream; Ink:  Close to My Heart Autumn Terracotta & New England Ivy; Stamps:  SU! Echoes of Kindness; Rhinestones:  Hero Arts

Wow, I ALMOST used this same set for the Challenge, but I wasn't clever enough to think of making 3 generations of one stamp. I was going to use one generation of each of 3 stamps, but decided that would look dumb. In the end, I put the set away, though I love it, and have never inked it even once. I've been hoarding it like it's a prized piece of cardstock.

You did a great job with it!
