Lovin the Apothecary Art Stamp Set. . .

How nice is it when a project simply comes together without any effort or stress?  That is how I fell every time I work with the Apothecary Art stamp set in the new Autumn Winter Mini.  This is today's effort.

The base card is Whisper White card stock.  I ran a piece of Pear Pizzazz through the Big Shot using the Polka Dot Embossing Folder and voila this is the lovely background that I got.

A piece of Twitterpated DSP mounted on Riding Hood Red was just enough to bring out the fine red lines in the paper which looks so fresh and clean! A strip of Pear Pizzazz Pleated Satin Ribbon set off the whole card beautifully.

I stamped the second largest image from Apothecary art in Staz-On Jet Black and coloured in the flowers using a Riding Hood Red Stampin' Write Marker - I love these pens - the colour is so true and the double ended nibs make every project so easy.  The leaves were coloured using Pear Pizzazz ink and an aqua painter.  Ran the whole thing through the shottie with the right sized Labels Collection Framelits Die and mounted it with dimensionals.

The greeting through the centre is from Apothecary Art stamped with Staz-On - I cut the card stock into a pennant shape and daubed the edges with Pear Pizzazz.

Hope you like this easy-peasy card!

    This is such a lovely set. So perfect the way the die matches the image perfectly, makes this a very versatile set.

    I really love the pleated ribbon and the embossed background adds texture and interest.
