Got a couple more

I was able to make a few more cards on my Stamp Getaway.

This card was a bit time intensive.  But oh so pretty!! I used flowers from several sets and distressed inks. Normally,  I wouldn't stamp with distressed inks, but I figured the stamps were small.  I like the way it turned out. 

I really like my papers to match.  Nothing worse that having a perfect stamp job and then slap it on some paper that was a bit off.  Yikes!  I hate it when that happens.  My color of choice today was Worn Lipstick.  I diecut my sentiment, inked it up and inked up the long edges of my card base.  Oh, me oh my!  I am so impressed.  Of course I have seen many other stamps do this but had not tried it myself. 

I did add acetate behind the sentiment since my die cut is very fragile. And of course, Pretty Pink Posh sequins.

Luckily,  I had a raindrop stamp to make this sweet Valentines card. I think I will keep it until February. Added some sprinkles of ink. I didn't bring EVERYTHING on my getaway, so I didn't have any thread to put behind my sentiment.  So, I inked up an acrylic block of Spunned Sugar, spritzed with water and stamped on top of my card face.  I'll admit it did get a little warpy.  Overnight it was resting under my box of stamps to straighten out.

Thanks for stopping by. Let me know what you think. I will certainly visit your blog.
