Stamped Backgrounds and Such


The latest AEI♥U challenge over at Avery Elle is to create your own patterned paper using stamps. This is not something I consider to be one of my strong points, but I wanted to give it a shot, so, well, I DID! I pulled out several Avery Elle goodies to create my design.

Woodland Hello


I used the Modern Leaves set with some pastel inks from Hero Arts to create my background. I wanted it to be subtle, but still pretty. I cut the cork using the wavy sort of die from the Custom Panels die set and then stamped, colored, and fussy cut the deer, rabbit, and bird from the Storybook set. I had fun putting together this sweet little scene!

I used the My Favorite Things Hybrid ink to stamp the sentiment over the stamped background. This ink works well when stamping over pigment inks. A few little Chickaniddy hearts finish off the card. I love those things! So cute!

You can find all of the products I used in the links below.

Have a Happy!!!
