The Alley Way Stamps - January Sneek Peek

Hi there!!

Its release time at The Alley Way Stamps!! Today is day 2 (click here for day 1) and i have a sneak peek card to share! The stamp set is called Bitty Borders and you are going to love it!! One of my favorite things to do is to stamp patterns is stamp on pattern paper!! I really love how you can change the look of pattern paper with one stamp!!

I started by die cutting a tab from my green triangle pattern paper. I stamped one of the border stamps all over the pattern paper in brown ink. I adhered this panel to my green cardbase.

Next i die cut a notebook page from pattern paper, then i stamped the border on the notebook page, but i stamped it off first. I stamped the sentiment and lips (from another new set this month!). I used a marker to add a little shading to the lips..

Last i added a little wooden cloths pin so it looks like it is holding the notebook page to the file folder.

  1. Such a delightful card! Your card is a wonderful reminder of the impact that comes with stamping on patterned paper, especially triangles paired with polka-dots. The notebook page, the sentiment, the 'mwah' and the clothes peg: eye-catching combination! Fabulous showcase!

  2. Love it! The file folder piece, the notebook die, the clothespin, wonderful!

  3. Very fun card,
    looks great.
