Stamp of Approval The Perfect Reason Collection


I could not wait to open the newest Stamp of Approval from Catherine Pooler.  The Perfect Reason Collection is actually PERRRFECT! The Paisley Peacock Collection is the one stamp set that I was waiting for with the most anticipation.  With the Muslim Holidays coming soon, I need to make some extra special cards and the paisleys work just wonderfully.  For the first card, I used the only 3 ink colors.  The gray is Pretty Pewter from So Suzy Ink Bites, the pink is Doll Pink from Simon Says Stamp and the aqua is Audrey Blue from Simon Says Stamp.  White and Black Card stock is from Gina K. Top Layer is 3 and 3/4 in by 4 and 3/4 in layered on black card stock 4 in by 5 in.  This was attached to an A2 size card stock.  Of course, I could not live without bling which is Swaroski crystals glued on by glossy accents.  For my second card, I used the So Suzy Ink Bites in Pretty Pewter,Totally Turtle and Wild Watermelon, Gina K’s Blue Lagoon and Liptick Inks.  I used Brutus Monroe’s Maple Chalk Ink to due some sponging.  The silhouette of the Masjid (Islamic Place of Worship) was stamped in the Pretty Pewter. The other 4 inks were used to stamp the paisleys and sentiments.  I used Brutus Monroe’s Gilded Embossing Powder to heat emboss the Eid sentiment. Sentiments and Masjid stamps are from Altenew.  The inspiration from this last card was from Pinterest  from Design You Trust.  Leave me some constructive criticism in the comments below.  Thank you
