Hello & Happy Monday!
Thank you to everyone who has made the July 2019 Release a fabulous one, thank you for all your awesome orders and comments over the weekend. All orders that were placed have been shipped today there is one happy small business owner in the studio this evening – THANK YOU!
As I was busy packing orders over the weekend I was amazed at how many people were still ordering this little stamp from the May 2019 Release, Background Blocks Mid Century Modern…
So it got me looking at the stats on the website and this little stamp has been the best seller for THREE months! I never thought such a little design would prove to be so popular. It makes me happy that it does as it is a fave of mine too 😉
This in turn inspired me to ink it up again…
I partially inked up the Background Block Mid Century Modern stamp with Altenew Gray Denim ink. I then stamped the new ‘Have a Perfect Day’ sentiment from Sentiments Outlined and to make it stand out a little more I decided to fill in the sentiment with a black fine liner.
To finish the design I arranged a cluster of tropical flowers and foliage from Paradise and Paradise Leaves. It turned out a little more ‘busy’ than I had planned in my head, but I still like the end result.
Lastly for today I have a super CAS card using this background…
The layout of this card is from the current sketch over at CAS Colours & Sketches seen HERE and below and I love how I unexpectedly made a more masculine card to show the versatility of this fun background.
I’ve used minimal supplies for this card, VersaFine Onyx Black ink to stamp the background. VersaMark & WOW Opaque White EP to stamp the mixed sentiment from Simply Said and the recently released WILD clear stamp sets. And to finish the design I added some Liquid Mercury Nuvo Drops to three of the dots in the pattern.
That’s all I have to share with you today and I hope you have enjoyed this little snippet of knowledge and inspiration about and using this little background stamp. I will be back tomorrow with some more cards using the NEW RELEASE, but if you’ve not checked out the Release Blog Hop, be sure to hop on by HERE to the start.
Until tomorrow, thank you for stopping by.
