I looked through my stamps and picked out an older set from Hero Arts - AC005 Untitled Word Shadow. they are circular shadow stamps-meaning most of the image is the cutout on the stamp. For my background I picked CG211 Magical Background. I love dots as much as I love gingham.
I couldn't decide which of the round stamps I wanted to used there are 5 or 6 them. I have 4 rolls of gingham ribbon, so I picked out three of the stamps and three shades of ink that might be considered pastels (I am a bold color gal normally) and went to work. I cannot believe I got all three done and posted in 90 minutes. Lately it has taken me almost that amount of time for just one card.
A blogging friend Barb takes such beautiful pictures of her gorgeous cards, and has inspired me to work on my card photos. So I retook my card pictures from the scramble, added a little staging and a background with some pop, but not I hope enough to overwhelm the cards. I inked and clear embossed some wood veneer pieces for the little bit of something in the foreground.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
