Stampin Up! Baby blossoms

I have been playing with my new stuff, (in between listing a lot of parchment craft books and mags on ebay, I'm running out of space!).  The baby blossom set is gorgous, a 2 step set so you stamp the first image then stamp the second on top in a darker ink or you can use the same ink pad just stamp the first image on scrap before stamping on your card. I used the stamp-a-ma-jig to line the images up, I stamped all of the images in the corners of squares of thick acetate, (cut up a sheet I bought from stationers for 25p) so now have permanent index cards to keep with the set.  Have I confused you yet? I will put up a quick tutorial on 2 step and stamp-a-ma-jig as it's great.
Here's the card
I randomly stamped on very vanilla card using regal rose, melon mamba, baja breeze,marina mist,old olive and pear pizzaz markers, then cut down a bit to mount on marina mist card and a scallop edge of regal rose then mounted on crumb cake.  I used the new seam binding ribbon, the sentiment is from the kimono kids set.
I had some scraps left from cutting the very vanilla and it was a shame to waste it so I used it in the insert - waste not want not.
I love this set so watch out for some more cards.  Bye for now.
