Sneak Peek #1 - Happily Grateful

I'm starting with my favorite set of the sneak peeks...I am so grateful that TAC is allowing us to share these early with you! The Happily Grateful stamp set has 8 pieces - butterfly, branch, flower parts & 2 phrases. The first time I saw this set - I immediately thought VersaMark & Kaleidacolor. VersaMark looks great on many cardstocks, but I consider it show-stopping on the Kraft cardstock - it just POPS! That's where this card started - branches in VersaMark (looks like a watermark).

Then I decided to coordinate the Kraft cardstock with our rich chocolate Brown and Aspen cardstocks. With all the tan & brown going on...I chose the Blue Breeze Kaleidacolor for making the butterfly stand out. I then used my trusty Burnt Umber Palette ink (stamped, direct to paper, and sponged) for the rest of the card.

Finishing touches used today were with my Scor-Pal & Scor-Bug...and an eyelet from TAC's Amelia hardware pack (set with my Crop-A-Dile). Oh, I almost forgot...I punched out the butterfly piece with our largest scalloped square punch and attached it with Pop-It Pop Dots.

I hope you enjoy this quick & easy card as much as I do!
