Thank You - Inspired by Nature

I love the stamp set Inspired by Nature.  I purchased it in September or October, but I haven't had a chance to use it until yesterday!  I needed to send some Thank you cards out, so I decided to inaugurate the stamp by using it to create my cards.  

Here's the design I came up with.  The stamp is quite large and double-sided.  The background grass is on one side and the flower is mounted to the other side of the wood block.  I inked the stamp with VersaMark and then I inked my brayer with Early Espresso so I could apply an even coat of ink over the VersaMark before stamping my flower image.  I embossed the image with clear embossing powder.  I used daubers of Always Artichoke, More Mustard, and Cajun Craze inks to apply ink to the Very Vanilla card stock.  The edges were inked with Early Espresso also.

 Early Espresso card stock is layered with Autumn Spice DSP which frames the completed stamped image.  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes, stamped with Early Espresso, and punched out with the Word Window and Modern Label Punch.  The completed sentiment is attached to the stamp image with Dimensionals.

I highly recommend adding Teeny Tiny Wishes, Word Window Punch and Modern Label Punch to your arsenal of stamping supplies--they are must haves!  You can purchase them on-line from Nanci's Stampin' Up! site 24/7.  As for Inspired by Nature, I cannot wait to use this stamp again!

Happy Stamping!
