Playing with Inks...and NEW RELEASE Stamps

Hello and Happy Tuesday! Have you seen our NEW RELEASE stamps yet? I've been having fun playing with these! In fact, I have two cards to share for this week's SweetStamps.com Blog Challenge #87 Stippled or Sponged!

**Check out this TUTORIAL for Step-by-Step Instructions**

For my second card, I used 4008 Art Nouveau Vertical Border stamped in French Roast Shades™ dye ink and colored with Distress Markers. I applied Vanilla Cream Shades™ dye ink with a sponge but rubbed it across the cardstock instead of tapping it. I used 98116 Bitty Scallop Die (Memory Box) on both sides of the stamped and sponged image.
I cut a piece of green CS with 98118 Classic Scallop Border Die (Memory Box) on one side and adhered this layer to a piece of Stardream CS that I embossed using FRM132 French Lattice Small Frame Die (Cheery Lynn Designs). Then to finish it off I added some ribbon from my stash and Cream Pearls in two different sizes.

I hope to see your stippled or sponged creation in this week's challenge, you could get some of these beautiful new release stamps if you are the lucky winner!

Happy stamping,
