4 CC #271 {2-step stamping}

Good afternoon everyone! So sorry that my 4 Crafty Chicks post is late - I had every intention of having a card done "early" but life things have been getting in the way....

Leanne is challenging us to do some 2-step stamping and I bought a Misti especially for this type of you think I have any stamps for 2-step stamping?!? ACK!!! I had scoured my cupboards over and over for a set to try out the technique and came across an oldie from Stampin' Up! called Field Flowers. I tried that set 3 different times and it looked AWFUL! I remembered that I just received my Stamp of Approval bundle from Catherine Pooler in the mail a week or so ago and came across a wonderful set from "the ton" Couture Clear Stamps called Holiday Flourishes....

There are a lot of flourishes and pretty whoop-de-whoo's in this set PLUS this adorable holly collection - with outline stamps etc - perfect for 2-step stamping:

For the leaves, I used Wild Wasabi and then stamped over them with Garden Green and for the berries, I used Cherry Cobbler and stamped the outline in black....

Be sure to hop on over to the 4 Crafty Chicks blog and see what the rest of our Chicks have for you - be sure to also welcome our new Guest Designer! Cheers!
