'What I Love'

Welcome to Thursday Challenges!

DOstampers STARS Challenge #173: What I Love Stamp Set in the Sale-A-Bration Brochure


The element that stood out for me was the black and white checkers.  So, the first stamp set I thought of was the 'Six Sided Sampler'.  I wanted to add some softness so I chose the 'What I Love' stamp set and the beautiful Red Rose Ink.  The English Garden Designer Paper is a beautiful compliment to the Red Rose Ink. 

Cut 2 black cardstock 5 x 6 1/4, one red rose cardstock 4 3/4 x 6, one 4 3/4 x 6 watercolor paper and one 5 x 4 watercolor paper.

The technique that I used with the 'What I Love' Stamp Set for this card was inspired by my teammate DOstamperSTAR Linda Kaufman.

This technique is so fun and easy for all possible backgrounds, I just wanted to share it with you!

To complete the front, mat and add tagged sentiment with matching red ribbon and iced rhinestones.

For inside repeat stamped images and add a paired sentiment.

Have fun and enjoy this easy to make card!  The colors and hexagon images makes it good for a masculine card too!
