When I first started thinking about this card,I knew I wanted to use Pacific Point. I wasn’t sure the lighter Crumb Cake was enough so I cautiously added the Soft Suede and Early Espresso. I’m quite happy with the results! I’m not so good at adding lots of little repeating stamps. For some reason I can’t repeat ink consistently and all the images come out looking different. But with this stamp set, the flowers and buds are one stamp and the branch is another making it so easy to create a consistent image. And the branch stamp even has cut outs so you can fit the flowers in right where they go. No guess work! And the result is a beautifully put together flowering branch. I’m sad to see this set on the retiring list. I have used it here and there over the last few years and have really enjoyed the results. Look for this set and coordinating dies on sale in my retiring section after June 3rd.
