Sweet Stuff Sunflowers

Have you taken notice of the Sweet Stuff stamp set that's new in the Annual Catalog?  It's the cutest set...perfect for kids, and especially little girls.  Since there are only girls in our family (on both sides!), this definitely caught my eye.  The little flowers are absolutely adorable, but there are lots of other fun images, like a cupcake, ballerina, and an ice cream cone.  If this set hasn't been on your radar, get out your catalog and check it out on page 87!

Tips & Tricks

  • This set is perfect to use with the new Blendabilities markers.  I chose to watercolor this card, but since this set consists of line art images, Blendabilities are a great way to color them in.
  • Want an easy way to make grass?  While you can do this with Paper Snips, it's a even easier when you use the new Fringe Scissors.  I didn't get these when they came out in the Occasions Catalog this spring, so I'm so glad they are still available in the Annual Catalog.  Just a few snips gave me this've got to love a tool that makes an easy job even easier!
  • I love the stamps in the new Chalk Lines set...they are perfect for making a simple and understated background, like you see here.  The stripes give this card just a touch of texture for the card base.
