Bud Basics in Real Red

Hi Folks, I hope everyone is having a good week. It's been quite nasty here the past couple of days. So much rain it's sitting on top of the lawns and so windy I wouldn't of been surprised if we were missing some siding, which, thank goodness, we are not!!! So it was a perfect day to stay inside and stamp, stamp, stamp, which is exactly what I did. heeee!

I dug out another retired set that I haven't used in a long time. Stampin Ups Bud Basics. I always liked it, but for some reason after they retire, they tend to get pushed to the back. Well today, it's up front!!

I started my A-2 standard size card with a Real Red card stock base. The next layer is Garden Green. I then took my next layer of Very Vanilla and stamped the flowers and leaves in Basic Black. I did my 2-step stamping with Real Red, Garden Green and YoYo Yellow inks. I added my black dots and 1/4" Handsome Hunter ribbon. I placed my layer on top. I then made a small layer of Garden Green and Very Vanilla for my sentiment, which I stamped in Basic Black. It was a fun card to make. I hope you like it and that I inspired you to pull out some retired stamps and do some stamping.

Thanks very much for dropping in. I really appreciate your visits to my blog and your comments make my day!!

Take care and have a great rest of the week. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin hugs,
