Paper Garden Projects Challenge

I'm so excited. OK, yes I'm excited for Black Friday....but I'm also excited because today is my first challenge with Paper Garden Projects. Our super challenge is to make a card, project, LO using a background stamp. Or use a stamp to make your own background. Be creative and have fun!

I had the opportunity to play with the Cover-a-card Greenery cling stamp by Impression Obsession. This stamp is available at Paper Garden Projects, just click the store name for the direct link. I had never used a background stamp, but now I'm addicted. There are soooooo many possibilities with these stamps! Here is my creation:



I used my Impression Obsession stamp. A Melissa Frances Rub-On and Prima Flower. I used my Spellbinder Nestabilities to cut small scalloped squares. I then took PTI cardstock and stamped it with a matching ink color. I stitched around each sqaure and then adhered them to my card. So easy and a different way to use a background stamp.

Here's the link to the Paper Garden Projects Challenge. Up for grabs are two fabulous background stamps. And if you make a "black" card in honor of Black Friday, you can double your chance of winning! So be sure to play along!

And a quick note. The winner of my Twilight Tuesday blog candy is Tamara Bennett!! Just e-mail me with your addy and I'll get your goodies in the mail!

Enjoy!!!
