Elements of style by Stampin Up and me for the PPA #58 challenge

Good morning everyone. I hope you are having a Sunday with lots of peace and rest and good moments to look back on. We are back in the mountains. Lots of rain though. But it's very alright with me. Yesterday there were thunder showers here and about 10 miles from here a forest fire started.. In my hunble opinion.. Rain is very welcome!!! I think the helicopters and fire figthers are working hard to get it under control.. So that's good.
Yesterday I used my 'Elements of style' Clear stamp set from Stampin Up to play along with the PPA #58 challenge. The card turned out so beautifully.
As a base I used the 'Peach Parfait' card stock and added a piece of Basic Grey card stock to make it pop. The Whisper White card stock I rolled through the Big Shot to give it this nice 'top note' cut. A cute little pearl was needed to give it that femine look.
I added some photo's for you to see how I am using those clear mount sets. In case you were ever wondering . I want to encourage you, because really.. it's not hard at all.
They come in a dvd case and after I take those stamps out, I breathe on them and.... then voila.. they will stick right on the clear mount block, so I can ink them up. You should give it a try. Buying these kind of stamps without the wooden blocks are way better for the enviroment and they take way less space in your storage area. + you can see right through the clear block to place them better on your cards.. That has sure been a help to me. Especially with the sentiments that I love adding on the cards.
All that to say.. thanks for stopping by and take good care. Pauline
