Just Thinking

One of the first stamps I put on my wish list from the Spring Catalog was Just Thinking. It is a single image stamp that can easily be cut out with the Window Framelits Collection.  I love the shape of those framelits so I think that is how it rose to the top.  So when the Stampin' Addicts Spring Catalog Swap came out, of course I signed up to make a card with this set.  How else was it going to get off my wish list and into my hot little hands?
Colors: Very Vanilla, Pretty in Pink, Lucky Limeade, and Island Indigo.  Stamps: Just Thinking.  Big Shot: Ovals Collection and Windows Collection Framelits.  Accessories: Tea for Two Designer Series Paper, Flower Trim and Pearls Basic Jewels.
Here I stamped the image twice: the first time inking it in Island Indigo and stamping it on the same colored card stock; and then coloring on it with marker and stamping it on Vanilla.  The first layer I cut out with the framelits.  Unfortunately, we don't have anything that cuts the right size circle for the inside of this image so I had to hand cut it out.  (Remember the days when we used to have to hand cut everything though?)

Just Thinking is in the Parker's Patterns product suite, but it also goes perfectly with the Tea for Two Suite since the little flourish at the top is mimicked in the Tea for Two Designer Series Paper. And of course, I gushed over the Flower Trim on my last post, but I just love them.  They are so soft and lovely and just add a nice touch to your project.

Did you notice the new Oval Framelits?  These are perfect for so many projects. And of course, they gave us a new Paper-Piercing Pack to match the Oval and Heart Framelits as well as several more punches.

Have I mentioned how much I just love the Spring Catalog?  I hope you love it just as much.  If you haven't received your own copy yet, drop me a line and I will get one off to you. Enjoy!
