The stamps in this set are huge! They take some getting used to. So far, I think the best way to use them is to showcase the image itself and keep the background simple. I stamped the image in Pool Party on a Whisper White scrap and stamped it again in Real Red. I fussy cut the "celebrate" banner from the Real Red image and adhered it with Stampin' Dimensionals onto the main image. I cut the main image with the Ovals Framelits Collection and another, larger oval in Real Red. I embossed a Pool Party mat with the Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder. I added to stripes of Real Red 1/4" Cotton Ribbon and then attached everything to a Crushed Curry card base. I thought the design needed a little somethin'-somethin' so I added two Real Red Candy Dots.
