It’s my birthday month (JULY)… and isn’t that reason to celebrate? It certainly is a Reason to Smile and be thankful for health, family and friends!! So.. to celebrate my birthday month, I’m smiling…. and I hope you are smiling too as I give away JUST ONE Reason To Smile Stamp to my followers and readers!The Reason to smile stamp set was used on today’s card share along with the Curly Cute Stamp set, and my most recent favorite Papillion Potpourri. A two step stamping set, the Reason to Smile stamp set contains the outlines of flowers, flower centers and stems and then the “fill” images in a second color. LOL, I just colored the original stem and flower using markers… snipped them out and then popped them onto the card stock using stampin’ dimensionals aka super thin pop dots.The butterfly image was from Papillion potpourri… isn’t it sweet? Stamped in Soft Suede ink, the floral centers were colored using a tangerine tango marker.
Speaking of tangerine tango… did you know that that color and color NAME was one of the Pantone featured best colors for fall 2012…. way to be ahead of the curve!!!
Card Stock and designer series papers follow the pantone models… similarly to your seasonal clothing color choices… even jewelry falls into that grid of color, isn’t that cool? If you’re out there bargain shopping, check out Pantone color forecast first and you’ll be right on target for the next color season!!
