I have used one of the stamp sets from the Holiday Catalog that is not necessarily a holiday set.  That sounds confusing!  The set is the First Frost Stamp set.  It has beautiful floral and sentiment stamps.  It also pairs wonderfully and expectedly with the Frosted Floral Designer Series Paper.  The paper is shimmery and just gorgeous.


Frosted Floral , 148420


I have an odd, odder than normal, layout and a mixture of colors.  All of the colors came from this designer series paper.  I love the thistle on here.  It reminds me of Scotland.  And I unintentionally  made a Scottish cross with the glimmer paper.  I really did not plan that.  I was just trying to add some glimmer but not be just a straight piece and to ground the sentiment.

The colors are all from the DSP.  To mimic the thistle on the paper, I colored the stamp with the Night of Navy Stampin’ Write Marker and then used the Blackberry Bliss one to go over the end of the bud and the little side pieces.

Thank you for visiting today!  I appreciate it and hope you will return.  All of the supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.  I hope you have a wonderful day!
