Hello everyone! Recently, I discovered Market Street Stamps. I'm sure many of you already know about them, but thanks to my blogging buddy Glora - I am now hooked. :) I've also found out that they have some fun challenges on their blog. So today I am entering my first challenge with them. It's the Market Street Stamps ~ January Block Party. The guidelines for this challenge: Create a new project with MSS stamps! It can be anything (cards, layouts, altered items, etc.) - be creative and have FUN!
So here is my very first card using Market Street Stamps:
The black card base is from Recollections. The red scalloped background piece is cut from the Elegant Edges ~ Cricut cartridge. The papers for the scalloped piece and the three top hearts are from the K & Company ~ KP Valentine paper pad. The white background cardstock and the pink cardstock for the bottom heart are from Recollections. The super fun background stamp is the Market Street Stamps ~ Too Many Martinis. I stamped it with Technique Tuesday ~ black ink. Then I colored in some of the circles with red & pink ~ Prismacolor pencils and blended it with Odorless Mineral Spirits.
The beautiful hearts are cut with the heart die in the My Creative Time ~ 100% Sweetness stamp set. For the red heart, I did some stitching with a white ~ Sakura Gelly Roll pen. And for the pink heart, I added the "Be Mine!" sentiment from the My Creative Time ~ Be Mine mini stamp set.
For the pink heart in the upper right corner, I did some stitching with a Salmon ~ Zig Writer pen. And for the pretty rose patterned heart, I added a little bow with white ~ DMC floss.
To add a little extra sparkle, I added some pretty little pink & red flower gems from my stash.
Well, that's it for today. Wish me luck in the challenge! This was a super fun card to make and I just love how it turned out. I think I'm really gonna love these new background stamps!! ;)
Have a great rest of the weekend my friends. I will see you all back here tomorrow.
