Blooming with Kindness quick card, plus free table redo

Blooming with Kindness is one of those stamp sets I love because the main image is beautiful simply stamped alone in one color, and because there are so many different word stamps. I love my words!

I used this design at a 10-card class, although it was a square card on Crumb Cake card stock. I mailed that card (after all, isn't that why we make them?), so I used the extra dsp to make a couple of these on the Whisper White card stock. It's quick and easy, and uses Island Indigo ink and card stock, along a Summer Starfruit pattern in the Birds of a Feather dsp pack.

On my quest to continue shabby chic-ing (a word?) my Stampin' Studio, I picked up a free wood table a couple of weeks ago. I painted it with Martha Stewart's Sunken Pool paint, but only one coat so I didn't cover all the dents and scratches. I mean, isn't that what makes the table shabby?



A close-up of some of the loveable knicks and scratches:

I'm going upstairs to stamp now. I've finished my chores (cleaning, dishes and laundry), and I even made my own cooking spray ala Pinterest today - it's just one part Olive Oil to five parts water in a spray bottle. Shake it well before using it. It's wonderful!

Happy Stampin'!
