IC158&TECC46 Echoes of Kindness, Stamper's Dream Challenge #3


Can you tell it's *Full Moon*??? I'm up and running.....LOL!!!
When I saw the IC158 Challenge I knew I had to tease you all with a little *Sneak Peak* from this beautiful new Level II Hostess Set that will be in the new Catalog - it's called *Echoes of Kindness*!!! What do you think??? Do you like it???

I chose these cute little Magnets for my inspiration!!! I really liked the colors!!! Taylor's TECC46 Sketch came in handy for this card. I used the beautiful *Haiku* DP on the left and the right side of the card was scored. The image itself was inked with Wild Wasabi and Tangerine Tango. The sentiment was inked in Chocolate Chip.

I layered the flower image on Tangerine Tango and then on Chocolate Chip CS. The border on the side was punched out with the new *Scallop Edge* Punch. I added some small Pearls on top of the scallops. The bow was made with the 1 1/4" Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon from SU. Hope you like it???
My idea to create a second card for the
came from
this fun Challenge!!!

Once I saw this necklace and these sweet tooth magnets I knew I wanted to combined it all into one card!!!

This is how it all came together.....I saw this super cute Stamp called *Tiers of Treats* at the *Stamper's Dream* Shop Site and had to have it!!! You probably have seen many gorgeous cards with this Set too....it's just yummy!!!

Okay - I didn't just stop shopping for this Stamp Set...oh no - I came a cross these gorgeous Pewter Pearls and as you can tell they are the perfect little touch on any card....he,he,he!!!

I used Basic Gray CS in the BG and stamped it with the new *Classic Stripes* BG Stamp. The splash of color is *Real Red* from this necklace.....I colored the cherries and the strawberries with a Copic Marker (R29 - Lipstick Red). The rest was colored in with Copic Markers (N1 - Natural Gray, C3 - Cool Gray and C5 - Cool Gray). Next I bedazzled the treats with some Dazzling Diamond Glitter. The sentiment is from a Mini Cupcake Set from Hero Arts - it was inked in Basic Gray.

Hope you'll like my take on the IC??? ~TFL~

Echoes of Kindness is gorgeous. I love how you did two color stamping and the layout is lovely.

The reds and grays for your cupcake stack is a nice twist on the pinks you typically see. Delicious.

Hugs, Mary

I just love the colors you used in your first card. And your Stamper's Dream Challenge card is totally genius...just gorgeous! I would never have thought to use that stamp with those colors. That's why you're the pro, and I'm still learning! Beautiful work, my friend! :-)
