Look closely though. Can you tell what I used to create the background ?
I like to get a little more out of my stamp sets, stretching myself to think a little outside the box.
The Bloomin' Love stamp set is pitched as a set for Valentine's Day, which is great - but if you look at it like that, then that's pretty limiting.
I do love the pretty little filigree heart motif but decided to use it here, in a way that you wouldn't perhaps normally think to. I stamped it all over the Lemon Lime twist card panel at different angles, in clear Versamark and then applied White Stampin' Emboss Powder which I set with my heat tool.
Its hard to tell that I used a heart shaped stamp to create such pretty and unique background for my card.
Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies were used to form the topper and I added a nice sentiment from my One Big Meaning stamp set, stamped in Lemon Lime Twist ink, adding the delicate Ombre Bow.
I have to say, I do love this card - I hope the recipient does too !!
That's it from me today. I hope this card gives you are little bit of food for thought and that you will pick up a few of your stamp sets and maybe consider using them in ways that really do offer a little bit more versatility.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you will pop back again.
