Hearts a Flutter Postcard

Using the Post Card stamp again, this time with the
Hearts a Flutter Collection. 

I look at this NEW stamp as a blank palette to stamp collections of designs  and favorite sentiments on. As a Guest Designer with the Create with Connie and Mary Summer Collection, my task was to use the colors Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe and Soft Suede for their Sat. Challenge. I choose to use white as my neutral instead of vanilla because I wanted the lighter colors to have more impact. I'm so pleased with how it all came out. I invite you to pull out your same SU colors and join in the fun.
The colors used are part of the Summer Saturday Challenges
and you can come play along with the other Designers.

O.K. now it's confession time..... when I first started out with my idea it did not include the Cantaloupe layer under the banner. Well when I inked up my background Post Card image I accidentally got some ink in the large blank area of the stamp and didn't notice it. O.k. at time point you are saying "Just Stamp it again Pam" ! Oh no, not me, I'm gonna fix it! ( I always tell my stamp club there is always a way to fix a mistake). Ta dah, cover it up! Turned out better than my original idea....phew!

TIP....You may want to consider using a Stampin'Up marker (brush tip end )to ink up the Post Card stamp and avoid any ink landing up in a blank area.

The sentiment is from the "From My Heart " stamp set and also comes in Spanish and French.

My Favorite things about this card.....
1. Love the color combo.
2. Another layout I love with the Post Card stamp. (you might like this one also)
3. Love the hearts under the Kindness sentiment.

 The Post Card Stamp is also used in my Guest Designers Project for the Subscriber Only Connie and Mary Summer Collection which includes 24 projects from the
