Blessed By You set

Ok! I feel like I might be returning to the land of the living once again! Between the craft show and my studio remodel, I have been crazy! I finished the painting and carpet removal this weekend, so I think I am approaching the home stretch. I really just want to spend the week on the couch! ;)

Before I share my stuff for today, I wanted to address some questions you guys left on my Christmas Coasters post. After I stamp my coasters (I use StazOn, Palette Hybrid Ink, or other permanent ink) and let them dry, I spray on a clear coat to seal it. I use Krylon clear in a matte finish and have never had any problems with the ink running or fading or anything. I've had a coaster on my desk at work for 2+ years and it is as good as new! I also put felt pads on the four corners to really give it a finished look and feel.

Today I want to share another set of cards that I made. I really am enjoying taking a few elements and carrying the theme throughout a whole set of cards. This one uses PTI 2008 Bitty Box Basics patterned paper and some stitching. Here's a selection.. each card has a different sentiment from the Waltzingmouse Stamps set Blessed By You.

Plum Pudding and Beautiful Blooms:

Ocean Tides and Rustic Branches:

Ripe Avocado and Blessed By You:

And because they are so pretty together, a shot of the whole set:

Aren't the sentiments perfect! I love that they say a little more...

Thanks for the visit - enjoy your evening!
