Card making, home decorating and an occasional random musing.

Best things come in twos!

Gently Falling is a beautiful new set from Stampin' Up! that features several different leaf shapes, and "Two-Step Stampin'!" The leaf below is actually done with two stamps - a general leaf shape that's the lighter orange (Tangerine Tango in SU! terms) and the darker rust color (Cajun Craze) is a line drawing that makes the outline on top of it.

I also used Early Espresso card stock, Paisley Petals Designer Series Paper, linen thread and buttons from the designer buttons "brights" assortment. This card was inspired by page 16 in the Holiday Mini catalog (click icon to the right to check it all out!).

And the discussion of "two-step stamping" led me to share this photo, snapped about a week ago around 7:30 a.m. when we had a brief rain shower while it was still sunny out. Look at the beautiful double rainbow! (The second rainbow is to the right of the first one.)

Thanks for stopping! Let me know if you want to learn more about two-step stamping, either in a girls' night out workshop at your home (you can earn free stuff!) or in a class at my house.
