Just Four Tiny Stamps

Just one, last quick post before I leave for Spain.  I challenged myself to make a card from the new suite from Stampin' Up, without resorting to using the fabulous dies from the bundle - it has become far too easy to just grab one or two of the dies to make a very quick, but fabulous card!  I wanted to ensure I didn't become too lazy in my card making.

I used just four tiny stamps, two of the new colours and one of the sentiments (I know, technically that is five stamps, but it was only four to make the background design)  Don't check too carefully, as the stamping is not perfectly even - I was trying to make it in a hurry and just 'eyeballed' it, poorly, as it turned out - but it will show some of the versatility of the set!  Here it is.  I have pictured the four stamps used, in the photo at the very end of this post.

I will miss my crafting and blogging terribly while I'm away, but, most of all I will miss all you lovely, lovely people!  I will schedule a couple of posts for while I am away, so you don't all forget me! 😜

Thank you so much for your visit today and especially if you have left a comment.  You are all appreciated more than you know! 

If you have a question, please be sure I have a way to contact you so I can answer, as a lot of you are 'no-reply' bloggers, so I am unable to reply via e-mail.
