When the annual catalog for 2012 was released last June, one of the first stamp sets to make it to the top of my ‘must-have’ list was Everything Eleanor. The swirl/flourish image, the vintage background image, the pretty flowers & bird, the bordered circle image (just right for journaling in a scrapbook), all called my name. But for some reason, it is one of my most under-used stamp sets too! I set out to change that this weekend. With a boatload of thank-you cards that I need to make and send out, this was the first set I turned to, even though it doesn’t have a thank-you sentiment in the set. For that, I enlisted the help of a new friend, Pretty Petites which I got for FREE from the current Sale-A-Bration catalog along with the coordinating Petite Curly Label Punch which I also got for FREE during Sale-A-Bration. And they coordinate with the Curly Label Punch for layered goodness. A simple piece of ribbon and a pearl for finishing touches and I’m all done. My color combination was a monochromatic look starting with Very Vanilla cardstock, Sahara Sand ink for the background swirl, Soft Suede ink to stamp the worn background image and Early Espresso cardstock and ink for the Thank You sentiment.
