I am starting off the new Stampin' Up! catalogue season with a new home for my blog. I hope you'll stop by & keep track of the goings-on at Uptown Stamping.
I was so impressed with the May Paper Pumpkin kit, Hugs from Shelli, that I used up every bit of it. I just loved the card bases provided so decided to create my own with what I had on hand.
For this card I used the Dictionary background stamp (retired) stamping using Sahara Sand ink, stamped off, on Very Vanilla cardstock. I then added some "splotches" using the stamp set that came with the kit using Pretty Peacock ink. The result was a vintage looking background - perfect for the images from the new "Sailing Home " stamp set. I'm thrilled with the collection of backgrounds that I created! Have a go at it with whatever stamp sets you have on hand. Keep the ink colours subtle & neutral, add a few ink splotches for interest & you're good to go. Be sure to share your creations so we can all admire them.
Thanks for stopping by,
