One thing I always forget about is stamping on patterned paper. I think it can give such a nice subtle classy look to a card. I found this layout on Pintrest a few weeks ago and went through my stamps to find something that would work.

Okay that's all I have for you today. I gotta go get dressed and get ready to head up to my aunt's house in Seminole. My cousin Betty Lou is wanting to make a big dinner for everyone and I am sure we will have a house full. I called my sister yesterday morning and told her that she needed to go to Aunt Betty's so her and her husband will be out there as well. I also have to stop by Linda's and get some punches she ordered for me. Busy, busy day....but what a lovely way to spend a Sunday!!
Okay...you've inspired me once again. Love the effect of the stamp on patterned paper and what a great way to get more use of both the stamp and the paper!ReplyDelete

Okay, I just love to read your blog (get a few laughs and inspiration too), plus I'm the weird one lately who has asked so many questions about your stamp unmounting! Well, come to find out, I live in Washington (I kinda knew that for awhile now) but I just realized you live south a an hour or so from my VERY best friend in the world! All ironic -- that's what the WWW will do for us, I guess. Have a great day and LOVE your card!!!ReplyDelete
Love this look. I will have to try this technique for sure. Loves very distinguised.ReplyDelete
I totally forget that technique, too. You would think a lazy stamper like me would remember a labor-saving trick like that.ReplyDelete
Hey, I'm unmounting my stamps and some of the odd brand foam won't come off. Any tricks?
Have a great week!
Love this card/technique. I even have some of this beautiful paper to try it on (and a stamp that will work perfectly!)ReplyDelete
Have a great cruise… wish I were going along!!
