You Have My Heart

It is no secret that I adore stamping and I am always looking for a way to stretch my stamps even further. I was trying to figure out a way to stamp out a background without using the whole stamp and avoid getting those harsh lines. I decided to try inking only some of the stamp and then taking a damp baby wipe and blotting off the edges of the stamp removing a bit more ink and softening the look. I stamped this image twice next to each other to create the background going across the page. I love the way it turned out. I was able to treat it just like it was a layer of pattern paper and build my layout right on top of it.

Lawn Fawn Birthday

This is the time of year that I seem to need a ton of birthday cards. I always say that this year I will be on top of it, but that just never seems to be the case. I needed a quick card to send out during the middle of the week. I have been wanting to use these new Flirty Frames stamp set from Lawn Fawn and that adorable little bird was just calling my name, so off I went to make this cute, colorful card for a special birthday girl.


Thanks for stopping by!
