Mish mash


Howdy blogland!

I have a busy week at work so in the interest of my suddenly dwindling time, I will be keeping this short.
I made this for fun a few weeks ago and am finally posting it. 

These BG stamps make me happy because they go all the way across a horizontal card base! No offense meant towards PTI, but it drives me bonkers to attempt to line up their BG stamps to fit a card oriented this way. Both Practicing Creativity Designs and WPlus9 make longer strips of clear stamps. *love*

Houndstooth BG stamp by PCD, Woodgrain BG stamp by WPlus9, sentiment, PP, cardstock, buttons, twine by PTI, flower by Pink Paislee.

Thanks for stopping by,
*mwah*

This is gorgeous. Love that background. I actually just bought one last night on Two Peas cause I saw that they used it at the online Summer Camp. :)

That flower is really beautiful, too! Have a great day, Chica!!!

This is beautiful, Dana! I love the different backgrounds and that puffy flower is wonderful! The hints of blue are the perfect detail. And now I wish you hadn't linked to WPlus9 - those are some cute stamps!

Oooooh weeee! Gosh, that is so pretty! So many details to love and AMEN to the longer BG stamps for horizontal cards!

Dana said...

I totally agree about the PTI BB stamps! Another company that has stamps that cover a whole card is Impression Obsession. I haven't gotten any of these yet but my Wish List is full!

IamDerby said...

Very pretty! I agree with you about short BG stamps, waste of time. Waltzingmouse also makes longer ones.

Andrea M said...

Girl, you can work those patterns for sure! WOW! That flower is stunning! So fabulous Dana!!!

Clare said...

This is such a fun card! I really super duper love that pom pom trim and gorgeous flower! And I can't believe that hound sooth is a stamp?!! I'm heading over to check that out NOW! ;)

Hmm... right... I never knew that about PTI BG stamps. I guess I've always done horizontal at an angle. But, noooo! I can't afford to investigate new companies ;) And a gorgeous card there, m'dear.

I love the CAS design! That flower popping up is perfect! ;o)

Belinda said...

LOVE that bg! How fun! Might have to take a look into it! :)

Totally agree about the stamp length, nothing worse than trying to line them up.
