New Stamps!!

Here is my first project with one of my new sets that came...this one is BoHo Backgrounds. The floral background is my absolute favorite! Another thing I am quite impressed with is the large circle...it stamps so nicely. This card is pretty simple and doesn't really need much explaining...For the circle, I stamped the circle image on Whisper White using Pomegranate ink and then punched it out with the SU scallop. I stamped the same image again using Soft Sky ink and then Close to Cocoa ink. I used the 1 1/4" circle punch to punch out the Soft Sky image and then used the 1" circle punch to punch out the Cocoa image. I layered them on top of one another and put a silver brad in the middle. On the large white panel I stamped the floral background stamp from this set all over with Soft Sky ink and then I inked up the circle image with Close to Cocoa. Before stamping on my white sheet I stamped off on scratch paper so that my image wasn't too dark and overpowering. I am hoping to stamp some more over the next few days and share more projects. I have 3 of the target mini mailbox tins I am working on so keep watching for those!
