The Beautiful You Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up! will help you create a striking mood on your handmade cards. And the heartfelt sentiments will reinforce that mood. You can see another sample card in this post: Beautiful You and Watercolor Pencils.
The umbrella was colored with Watercolor Pencils , but the white pencil didn’t show enough on the dress against the Soft Sky Cardstock. So I used White Craft Ink instead. The rain was stamped in Smoky Slate with one of my favorite stamps from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set.
If you love to play with abstract stamps, this set is a must-have! And if it’s not already in your craft room, be aware that Gorgeous Grunge is on the Retiring List, and only available until the end of May.
The mood of this card suggests that someone is sad or hurting, and is perfect for someone coping with loss or illness. The Silver Foil layer repeats the motif of “brighter days to come.” You could put the same image with a bright color scheme and a different sentiment, and get quite a different mood.
This is a very versatile stamp set, and you’ll love all the ways you can create the moods you want on your projects. If you don’t feel like coloring, the brushstroke stamps will do the coloring for you. If you DO like to color, Watercolor Pencils will let you do all the shading and blending want with the lovely dresses.
