Bloom

Market Street Stamps is having a Block Party to celebrate their new release and I decided to play along!

The challenge was to create any card using Market Street Stamps.


I used most of the MSS that I have!  I stamped the grid background & the carrots/ground from the Homegrown set with Amuse's Fern ink and the sun with Amuse Buttercup ink!  Let's pause right here for a commercial break...

Amuse Inks...no I don't sell them but I bought a few with birthday money and I LOVE them so far!  I bought colors that matched PTI and I love, love, love the way that the ink looks!  It makes such a nice crisp image, they are gorgeous, gorgeous colors! If you need some good inks, give Amuse a try!

...commercial break over! :)


Here's a closeup.  I used The Twinery's Mandarin twine to stitch the carrots.  I love how they look plump and ready to pick!  I also tied a strand of Denim twine around the grass to add another pop of color.  The grass is cut with Amuse Sage felt (have to recommend the felt too!  It is thinner than PTI's but cuts really well!)  using PTI's In the Meadow die.


To create the sun, I used the Market Street Stamps Here Comes the Sun background stamp and stamped just a portion of it on my panel.  It was such a perfect fit!  I love how I can use the whole stamp as a background or just a part of it for smaller areas! 

I hope you had a great weekend!! Thank you for coming by!
