3cards for 2 colour challenges with background stamping :)

Hello!! Well today I have THREE cards to show ....so love working with my background stamps...I can't stop myself LOL!

My first card is for the Embellish Colour challenge with background stamping. I used three of my favourite stamp companies for this card:





Stamps: Hero Arts stamps CG139 Dots and CL351 Friends.
Impression-obsession stamp: Cover-a-card cling CC037 Sm. Paisley.
PTI: Background Basics: Petal Power.

My second and third cards are for the Impression-obsession colour challenge of using the colours nutmeg, pumpkin, and coffee....YUMMY!!, but I would never automatically reach for these colours myself! That is what I so LOVE about challenges...they make you step out side your comfort zone. I remember reading once that you should try to do this daily...so I choose to do it with card making LOL!!! safe I know LOL!! Check out the challenge HERE.

IO stamps are all Cover-a-card clings: CC027 Flourishs, CC054 Swirls & Stars, and my a fave...CC039 Lg. Paisley.
Inks: Tim Holtz Distress inks in colours: old paper, vintage photo, rusty hinge, and spiced marmalade.


IO stamps are all Cover-a-card clings: CC032 Medallion, CC037 Sm.Paisley, and CC054 Swirls & Stars.
Ink: Tim Holtz Distress inks in colours same as above :)

Thanks for stopping by...Have the most wonderful Thanksgiving weekend :)


HUGS,
TRace

Hi there,

I just wanted to tell you how much I like your cards! I also love the Impression Obsession backgrounds, and have about 14 of them, which does not even include the one's that you are using, I probably want to buy another 7 or so...I know that is crazy. I just love the idea of making your own paper, and also the idea that you can use the background as a graphic statement, which is as close as you can get to printmaking (which I love, but I can not afford the equipment right now). I think you mentioned using them for scrapbooking also, I plan to do that to, but I have never seen anyone using the IO backgrounds on a scrapbook page...I would love to see that. Anyway, I am glad you are entering the IO challenges, it was nice to see your work! Oh, and I love how you do your flowers! Have a wonderful weekend!
