Fresh Cuts Stamp-a-Stack

This was one of my Stamp-a-Stack designs for this month. We used the gorgeous Fresh Cuts set to make 4 quick and easy cards. I love this colour combination - Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy, Kiwi Kiss and Basic Grey. The Kiwi Kiss has come out very bright in this photo...it looks much softer in real life.
I have stamped the main image in Basic Grey, and used sponge daubers and inkpads to add some soft shading. I love, love, love the little vine stamp. It makes a super quick and easy border.

I'm heading off to Stampin' Up! Convention early Thursday morning, so I'm madly doing some last minute bits and pieces. 60 swaps are done, and I'm also presenting on stage *gulp* so I've been busy preparing lots of samples for that.
I'll show you the other Stamp-a-Stack design for this month tomorrow (in between packing my bags!)
