The Perfect Match with a Classic Layout

amuse-bouche Day 3

Check this out!!! The new Sakura stamp being release from A Muse matches up PERFECT with their Astro Flower stamp! Git-er-done!!

I stamped the Sakura flower with light blue chalk ink - then I stamped the Astro Flower right on top of it with a darker blue. LOVE IT!



I also stamped just the Sakura flower on the card base with light blue chalk ink for a soft watermark looking background. I stamped flower stems with a stamp from the Personal Stationary Clear Set. Happy Mothers Day is stamped with brown ink. A little glitter in the middle of the flowers -- just because :)


This clean & simple layout is one of my favs. You could make several of these up in a snap -- especially since there's no coloring involved!! Leave off the sentiment...and then you can stamp one as needed. Thank You, Happy Birthday, Get Well ....you get the idea!

So how ya likin' all the newly hatched A Muse Stamps? I love 'em ALL! And this new Sakura is 'DA BOMB!!
