A Thousand Well Wishes – Bamboo Beauty

Welcome back!  A few CAS (clean and simple) challenge deadlines are coming up.  My favorite…

AAA Cards (#238) for torn edges and Less Is More (#481) for anything goes.  I chose to use the Triple Play colors suggested by Color Dare (#544).

Here is the result:



  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Basic White cardstock.
  • Focal Image Panel: (4⅛” x 5⅜”) Basic White cardstock.
    • Using a torn piece of Copy Paper, Soft Succulent ink (for Rosemary) was added to the left edge with a Blending Brush.
    • The Copy Paper was turned, and Petal Pink ink (for Peach) was also added with another Blending Brush.
    • The Bamboo Shoots and Leaf images, from the Bamboo Beauty stamp set was stamped with Evening Evergreen ink (for Harbour).
    • The sentiment, Sending a thousand well-wishes on your special day, from the retired Crane of Fortune stamp set was also added with Evening Evergreen ink.

Two of my all-time favorite stamp sets.  I love the silhouette created by dark ink on a lighter background.

Thank you for spending some more of your time with me today.   Cheers,  Jolanda!
