Background Fun

When looking at my cards, you have probably noticed that I am a little obsessed with background stamps!  I love the big ones, I love making my own with little ones, and I love layering backgrounds stamps over each other to create new ones.

Yesterday I got my new Papertrey Ink "Background Basics: Diamonds" set in the mail.  I had some fun with it while the girls were still at school!

For this card, I paired it with Love Dove from Pink Persimmon.  I was inspired by all of the beautiful colors and patterns of the Vera Bradley handbags/totes chosen as inspiration pieces for the Clean and Simple Challenge at SCS.
And another Santa card.  I am really loving my Santa stamps this year!  Another makeover attempt...I am SURE that he is getting tired of wearing the same red suit year after year, hee!
Hop on over to the Pink Persimmon Blog...a few other of my obsessions are being featured today...crackle paint and liquid pearls, woo hoo!  And you have until Monday to get those sketch challenge cards in to be eligible for the prize giveaway!
