Mixing Kraft paper and stamps!

Hi! Have you ever finished a card and thought ‘does it need something more’? I did with this card, and usually I play around with elements, glitter, stamps, rhinestones etc. until I find that ‘something more’ that it needed. But sometimes you don’t need a something more and when I looked at this card I told myself it needed anything and walked away. I came back to the card and felt it didn’t need ‘something more’ I like it just the way it was! Try it, you might find like the card just the way it is too!

Going My Way Card

Hello there! Pam here this morning to share a card I created using the Hampton Art/Jillibean Soup Irish Farm House Soup clear stamps:

Going My Way? card by Pam Brown

I adored the bicycle stamp, and it matched my die-dut perfectly. I stamped the bicycle all over kraft cardstock with watermark ink to add a a subtle background. I stitched the cardstock to patterned paper, added a die-cut, and stamped the sentiment underneath.
