A Non Inked Stamp

Apparently some crafters buy stamps and then never use them! That's why Caz has chosen this challenge for us this week at Make My Monday - just dig out those stamps or in fact Decoupage Sheets that have never seen ink or scissors and get crafting.
Now I do find it very difficult when I buy stamps not to get them out and ink them up straight away - I'm very impatient like that however, I did manage to find a WHOLE SET of stamps that had never been inked!!
It's a set that goes way back to the Sale-a-bration time and is called Bloomin' Marvellous - take a look

I have used 3 of the new In Colours on this card - how gorgeous are these yummy colours - just like ice cream!
I love my Modern Label punch too - and I like that when you punch it in a co-ordinating card stock, cut it in half  - it fits very neatly behind the sentiment.

Materials - Stampin' Up
Stamps: Bloomin' Marvellous
Ink: Crisp Cantaloupe, Coastal Cabana, Pistachio Pudding
Card Stock: Whisper White, Calypso Coral

  1. Very pretty card and lovely colours. I reckon I'll be able to find a stamp which hasn't seen ink - maybe several I'm ashamed to say!!

  2. Very pretty card. I can't believe you hadn't inked that stamp set up - I loved it - still do!

  3. A gorgeous card Jacqueline. Such lovely stamps and the colours are beautiful.

    I may have commented twice .. not quite sure what happened

  5. I love the first line of your post, Jacqueline - you sounded so surprised! Lol. What a great card, lovely colour combo and great focal stamp.

  6. This is pretty Jacqueline and I love the clever way you've layered your sentiment. I have lots of uninked stamps at the moment because I've recently had a delivery of gorgeous new ones! Vicky x

  7. A very sweet card, and I love your sentiment with the double layer, a great idea!
