Keeping it Simple with Background Stamps

13 Nov

I love having a card style handy that I can stamp in less than five minutes and today I’m sharing two of those with you.  The first is definitely an eye-catcher in my opinion and can be used for just about any occasion.

Stamp Set:  Hello, Doily
Punches:  1-inch Circle, Lace Border
Colors:  Wisteria Wonder, Whisper White, Concord Crush
Accessories:  Wisteria Wonder 3/8″ Ruffled Ribbon
Project Tips:
  The only thing that may be slightly hidden on this project is that behind the punched lace border, I have added 1-inch punched circles of wisteria wonder for contrast.This second card could be used on multiple occasions as well, just swap out the saying.  I just love the large sunflower stamp.  To get the colors, I markered the image.

Project Tips:
Be sure you crumple and tear your paper after you’ve stamped it for the best effect.  When finished, sponge around the edges and even a little on top with chocolate chip ink.
