Amber Ink Grow Green Card

My Amber Ink card for this week was created using the Clear Stamp Set Grow Green. Amber and Pam gave me this stamp set as a fabulous gift for serving on the Amber Ink (Th)Ink Tank February Design Team. Thank you Ladies!

Papers are from the retired Close To My Heart Bella kit. I love these papers and have been saving them for something special. I think they were almost made for this stamp set. The ribbon is hollyhock stitched ribbon from Close To My Heart. I used the 6x6 card pattern Button Trio from Jeanette Lynton's How To Book Originals.

I stamped the main image several times on different pieces of patterned paper, cut them out with my craft knife, and pieced them together. This paper piecing technique adds a lot of texture. To keep the flyaway hairs from the original image, I stamped the image on the rectangle piece and placed the paper pieced image over it.

Check back Thursday for a recap of all of my Amber Ink projects. On Monday I'll pass the torch to a fabulous papercrafter,who is it? You'll find out on Monday!

Happy Scrapping!
