The Alley Way Stamps November Blog Hop

Hello!!

Yipee! It's time for The Alley Way Stamps November Blog Hop!!! That means its release time and we have some fun new stamps!!! Three new sets plus a mini set free with a $40 purchase!! There is also a chance to win all new sets!! (details below)

My card today features the new set Line Upon Line! This an awesome background set, its nice and big!! I pulled out a big piece of watercolor paper.

I pulled out four different distress markers, a purple, green, dark blue and a light blue and i randomly colored the lines on the stamp. Next i spritzed the stamp once or twice with pearlized water. I set the panel aside to dry.

This months free with $40 purchase mini stamp set has the sentiment Sparkle, and since my background would sparkle when its dry, i thought this was the perfect sentiment. I also decided to pull out last months new set Snow Daze and use the sentiment Shine, Sparkle and Shine just go together!!!

But i needed an And (the symbol), only i didn;t really want to stamp it, so i looked through my embellishments and stickers and of course i had nothing the right size or color. Then it hit me!!  I have wonderful thing called a Silhouette Cameo!! It of course will cut an And in the size and the color i need!!!

Once my stamped background was dry i trimmed a little strip in the lower half of the panel. I added the top part to a dark brown card, base and then added the strip just a little below it and then finally the the bottom part (trimming off any overhang).

I stamped the sentiments twice so they would show up better on the busy background. The And was cut from purple glitter paper and added to the card with foam tape.  So even though you can't see it very well in the picture the background and the purple And sparkles and shines!!
