Stipple Celebrations

Good Morning & Happy Tuesday!

It's a very gloomy, rainy day here and my hubby is working from home today!
I'm slowly getting my house put back together because my back is acting up!
Some days I surely wish I was 20 again where there are no aches & pains.

I have a set of cards to share that I made one day last week.
It uses a retired set called Stipple Celebrations that I recently picked up on FB Marketplace for $3.50!
I remember owning this set years ago when it was available then selling it at a yard sale before we moved to Missouri. I have been kicking myself in the pants for doing that!

On this card I paired up some springy colors and got to work!
The colors are Bermuda Bay, Granny Apple Green, Grapefruit Grove and Flirty Flamingo.
I had to use my Stamp A Ma Jig to get the images lined up nicely.
Unfortunately, you can't use the wood mounted stamps with the Stamparatus.

Card Details:

Stamps: Stipple Celebrations (retired), Happy Birthday, Gorgeous (retired)
Ink: Bermuda Bay, Granny Apple Green, Grapefruit Grove, Flirty Flamingo
Cardstock: Thick Whisper White, Grapefruit Grove, Whisper White, Bermuda Bay DSP
Accessories: Classic Label Punch, Flirty Flamingo Enamel Dots (retired), Stamp A Ma Jig, Mini Dimensionals, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue

Those colors just make me smile on this gloomy, rainy day!
I may try my hand at another set of cards like this using a different color palette! 
What do you think?
Do you have any color suggestions to try?

My thoughts today...

Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!

Holy guacamole, I do remember this cute stamp set, and sadly, I got rid of mine too! But what a score, for $3.50, you can't beat it! I love your fun color combo...cheerful on this gray day!

Great use of an old set. I think it is in my deep dark closet. I will pull it to the front some day soon. Very pretty colors, Wendy!
