Thank you! Thank you for joining us on day 1 of the Waltzingmouse Stamps Stamp of Approval Parade. The design team is highlighting new and different ways to use the stamps from last months release. The design team has four days of great ideas lined up for you. For the first three days, we’re using stamps from WMS July release and on day four we’re rewinding to re-showcase “Afternoon Tea.”
For this month’s SOAP, I am focusing on backgrounds. Yes, you’ve probably noticed a lack of DP on this blog…and not because I don’t own any. For me, I feel it is just one to many things to throw into the mix…and maybe, just because, I’m an old-schooler.
OK, I can’t lie. I’m feeling rather crafty with the pineapple image. It wasn’t anything I thought up before hand (which always seems to be the best, from past experience). Sometimes I can just remember the fab bits and bobbles Claire includes in a set and then the light bulb goes off.
Here is the background I started with. I used the leaf image from Ovals-Classic Frames. My inspiration came from the brilliant card Joan made here. I then stamped an image from “Text It” to fill in the background. I have to give a big shout out and thank you to my step-mom. She gave half of her new SU! “In Color” paper and let me use her new in color stamp pads as well. Definitely helped with sparking my creativity.
