Words Create a Background!

The Dictionary Background Stamp would have to be a favorite of mine. Yes, I am aware I say that a lot but I’m fairly certain I don’t say that about EVERY stamp, lol!

Using the Dictionary Background Stamp and the new Blendabilities I had a lot of fun with the next three cards.

Dictionary - Just for You - JIF

This next card is background on background with the beautiful Pleasant Poppies Stamp. The border of the Blackberry Bliss Cardstock came about by accident. I cut out a Top Note Die Cut leaving this wonderful negative space which I almost threw out but something stopped me. So glad I kept it! 🙂

For this next card I used my Aqua Painters instead of the Blendabilities for a much lighter effect. The card I CASE’d from the Annual Catalog using the Flower Shop Stamp Set with coordinating Pansy Punch.

Doesn’t the Linen Thread give a subtle yet beautiful finish to the last two cards?! I also trialed the new Gold Pen on this card, noice!

I’m placing orders tonight so if there’s anything you require please let me know today and I’ll add yours and fingers-crossed we’ll have them here by the end of next week!

Oh, and have yourself an... Inkee Fiddling Day!

Smoky Slate Stars Mojo!

Oh. My. Gosh. This week’s Mojo Monday Challenge came together so quickly that I had actually completed the card and its happy snaps before the tragically bad movie I was watching had finished. This is my card…

Once again the wonderful new DSP stacks, Moonlight and All Abloom made this card so darn easy as even though these two DSP’s were from different stacks, they worked together beautifully in the true style of Stampin’ Up!

The sentiment from the Perfect Pennants Stamp Set was stamped in Blackberry Classic Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock then die-cut with the Banners Framelits, then adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals onto Daffodil Delight Cardstock which also die-cut with the Banners Framelits.

Of course it seems no card of mine would be completed without a little something from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set. With my die-cut of Whisper White Cardstock from the Circles Collection Framelits, I then stamped it in Daffodil Delight, Smoky Slate and Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink.
