This week I decided to have a go at the Gentler Times stamp set that first appeared in the Winter Mini Catalog of 2003 - 2004. This set was only around for 3 catalogs.
I've often used the heart for a Valentine card, congratulations on your engagement and weddings. For this week I went for something completely different.
On a base of True Thyme I added a layer of Brushed Gold. Yes, I have a lot of these 2 colors in my stash. Before I added a layer of True Thyme I embossed the filigree stamp with Gold Glory embossing powder on each side. The flower was stamped 3 times on True Thyme, also embossed, then punched with the 1" square punch and attached with dimensionals.
Unfortunately I could not capture the actual shine of the gold embossing with my iPhone camera. I'll be sending this card to someone in the near future, for which occasion, I'm not sure yet.
Hope you have found some inspiration to use this set, or a similar one that you may have forgotten you had.
Until Next Time !
