Guest Designing Again!

Good morning!  Today I am guest designing for Sweet Stamp Shop again!  This time around I got to play with the new Drops Background stamp set.

This set is so completely versatile, if you haven't seen already from the amazing creations the other guest designers have showcased on the SSS blog

Here are a couple cards that I created with this set.  The first card uses the heart background.  I stamped the image and dyed the seam binding with the same color so they would coordinate nicely.  Don't you love the fun arrow patterned paper from Simple Stories' 24/7 collection?

My second card uses the dot background in an unconventional way.  When I saw the pattern on the stamp, I knew immediately what I wanted to do with it.  My MIL is retiring from teaching at the end of this school year and I wanted to make her a card for her retirement.  The dots on the stamp worked perfectly to create the bubbles in a glass of champagne!  I stamped the image with Versamark and used clear embossing powder to create the desired effect.  I love how it turned out!

Thanks for stopping by to check out my creations!  I'll be back tomorrow with some new cards for your viewing pleasure.  :)

Until next time...

  1. These are perfect, Cristine. I absolutely love both of them, and the clear embossing/vellum is brilliant for that champagne glass. LOVE!


I love comments! Let me know what you think!
