Time to say goodbye to some faves

As we welcome summer, it also marks the time to say goodbye to some stamp sets to make room for new and improved ones. So, for this month's class, I pulled out an old greeting set that has been well-loved over the years. I'm talking about the Sincere Salutations set.

This card is so simple, but summery. Old olive serves as the base of the card, followed by a layer of Melon Mambo. Top that off with a pice of Basic Black ran through a texture plate for some texture, and lastly a piece of Confetti White card stock. The sentiment is stamped in Melon Mambo ink and the knot-bow is also Melon Mambo. For the watermelon slice, I used the two larger circles on the Circles #2 die, the largest circle in Old Olive and the next largest in Confetti White cardstock. The melon part is punched from Melon Mambo cardstock with the 1 3/4 inch circle punch. Cut all these circles in half for two melon slices. For that authentic watermelon look, use the blossom punch in black for the seeds. Mmmmm, yummy!

I just love the look of this set, as you can tell by looking at my stamps--they are well-used. It's elegant and simple, and perfect for almost any occasion. Don't miss out on getting yours. They are only available for one more week, and then they are gone for good. To order, click here to go to my ordering website.
