Glitter Queens Blog Hop

I will have a different card posted throughout the week of the blog hop. I will use French Foliage all week. Come back to see the fun cards you can make with this versatile set. 


One of the things I LOVE about this card, is the use of the stamp pad to create a background. I took Sahara Sand Classic Pad and gently centered it on the Whisper White cardstock. I only pressed on the edges because that is the only place I wanted a full contact outline. I used the straight edge on the top because I knew the slightly rounded edge would be less noticeable on the bottom. 


I used:
Paper: Early Espresso CS #119686, Sahara Sand CS #121043, Whisper White CS #100730
Stamps: French Foliage #, Friendly Phrases #
Ink: Sahara Sand #105208, Cajun Craze #119678, Early Espresso #119680
Other: Paper Snips #103579, Dimensionals #104430, Seam Binding Ribbon #120999

Blog hop or no, I love this card. What a great idea to use the stamp pad it self for a distressed background impression. I have those stamps too. Love them and haven't used them enough. I'll have to pull them out and play with them. Thank you for the inspiration, as always.

Christina said...

This is a wonderful use of a stamp pad and it makes me want colder weather and warm soups! Perfect!

I love the effect of the ink pad directly on the paper. Seems like an obvious technique, yet it is not! I thought you used a clear block. Thanks for sharing this trick. Love the card!
