Stretch Your Stamps: Day 7



Hi there, I'm poppin in with two more cards to share inspired by Stretch Your Stamps.  Can you tell I'm enjoying this class?  And...even better, we have no plans for any evening this week!  I'm looking forward to coming home from work and relaxing!  That was what was in order last night and so I got to stay current with the class.  I rarely if every stamp the background panel on my cards.  Jennifer McGuire shared with us that when she does background stamps she starts in a corner and moves out to make sure she doesn't have any empty space.  I used this technique to create the card above.  I also masked as I went and stamped off to overlap the hydrangeas.  I'm entering this card in the Moxie Fab Love Challenge for Stamp It!

My second card below is a bit simpler but using the same masking techniques...now I have to figure out how to master the leaves that go with this hydrangea set.  I've tried it a couple times, but haven't finished a card with them yet!  I'll keep trying!

  10. I haven't popped in to comment in awhile (although I've been keeping up with your blog). Thought I would comment today as both these cards are so pretty. I love Hydrangeas (can't grow them though). Your cards are just wonderful.

  14. gosh these are so pretty, I love hydrangeas, but they sadly don't grow well in CO! :( Great tip on background stamping, I'll have to remember that. :) oh, having friends that have tried to squeeze religious ed. in during the school year, I think you are very wise to do it now! ;) But, if I had the option to get these 3 out of the house every morning, I would *SO* go for it, too! ;) They only have tri practice, which is an hour long 3x per week. But I do have a sitter come once a week on most weeks, just so I can run errands and get a little "me" time. :)

    the soft colours and shape of the head make this an ideal bkgd stamp....it worked out so well :0) Love the CAS version too, great masking.
