Pamper Yourself

This is a card that I created with my first Impression Obsession stamp set. I think that I'm happy with how it turned out. I had a gift certificate to use at their site, and this set is one of the things that I found there. Their stamps are of a slightly different style than I usually gravitate towards, but the images in this set (Rest, Relax, and Enjoy) are very comfy looking, and sorta "shabby chic", so I chose this. There is a chair, bathtub, bunny slippers, sentiment, and this robe in the set. They are pretty when colored. I paired the robe up with my MFT set for the sentiments. The flowers are from Carte Postale, and I used my PTI Faux Ribbon set for the other detail.

On a side note... A friend of mine said to me today that she didn't like the last card that I posted because it wasn't my usual cutesy style. Well, I say we shouldn't stick with a particular style for every card that we make. I like to challenge myself to create different looks for my cards, so that I don't get stuck in a rut, you don't get bored of looking at them, and I don't get bored of making them! So my challenge to you is to stretch your creativity, and make a card that is totally outside of your "usual style", post it somewhere, and link it here. I'd love to see it!


P.S. Small tip - True Thyme looks great stamped on River Rock.
P.S.S. That friend that I mentioned is STILL one of my very bestest friends, and one of the reasons I love her is her honesty! :)

Fine Print...
