with all my {heart}

Hi there and Happy Friday to you all! I haven't had a whole lot of time to stamp lately, but early this morning, I got a chance to play with the With All My Heart stamp set, and I seriously had so much fun. The color palette I used reminds me of summer - such happy colors! Maybe it's because I've had Kauai on the brain, since we'll be going there this summer for our 10 year anniversary :) Don't these cards remind you of a tropical summer? Here's a close up of each of the cards for you.
I love the deep Melon Mambo color. I can't believe I was debating on getting the Extra Large Fancy Flower punch as well as this stamp set! I was thinking that I didn't need another flower punch, yet, now that I have it, I LOVE it. Turns out, you can't have too many flower punches afterall :) And as far as the stamp set goes, it's definitely more versatile than I thought. I created the background by stamping a pattern on an 8 1/2" x 11" Whisper White piece of cardstock and am really happy with how it came out. The 2 colors I used are Apricot Appeal and Melon Mambo. I got the gradient of pinks by stamping the image 3 times, so I have 3 shades of the Melon Mambo.
I think I definitely under utilize the Apricot Appeal color - it's so pretty and soft peachy-yellow. I love how this card turned out too!
