In The Background … We’re Hopping Round The Block!
Happy Wednesday everyone and welcome to my blog. It time to join the MFT Stamps Design Team for another "Hop Around the Block"
Now if you didn't hop onto my blog from Kathy Daume's blog then you might want to hop back to Kim's (MFT Lady) blog so that you can start at the beginning of the hop. You don't want to miss anything and there is lots to see!
MFT Stamps will be releasing six new stamp sets, these will all be available on the MFT Stamps store after our MFT Stamps Release party which starts tonight at 8pm EST over on the MFT Member Forum of SCS.!
Today I have decided to feature the new “In The Background” stamp set. This is one of those stamp sets which is a must have! It contains a large background stamp which is what I have used to stamp the background panel of my card and also the stripe that is wrapped around my tin. But not only do you get the background set but you also get three other images, the teapot (used on my samples today), a flower and a bird! Such a versatile set!
Here is a close up of my card, as you can see I have paper pieced the teapot using the same designer paper that I used for the base of my card. As mentioned above the middle panel was created using the background stamp from the In The Background set. I wanted to have a mixture of the two colors that are on the designer paper, so I first inked up my stamp with orange ink and then randomly inked it up again using red ink before stamping on my white card.
For my tin I added a scallop border to the top and bottom of my decorated piece of card that I used to wrap around the tin.
Well that is enough from me for today … it’s time to continue on the hop. This time you will be heading on over to the amazing Barbara Anders’ Blog so you can continue on your Hop Around The Block. Enjoy the rest of the hop and thanks for dropping by!
