I hope you are having a wonderful weekend :) Today is our last introducing post before Uniko release their fab birthday release tomorrow. We have another versatile background stamp with the pinstripes and a lovely freebie stamp set - Yes, You - which will be available for free with orders of £25 or more placed between the release day and 17 Feb. It is definitely worth getting your hands on!
I was surprised at how much I used and liked working with the pinstripe stamp. It is easy to line up to create big backgrounds and is super versatile.
Here I used the stamp to create a grungy style background by stamping in different directions and taking care not to get a perfect impression. The sentiment is from the Birthday Wishes stamp set which is also part of the release.
I also used it to create the background on yesterday's card - I love the grid effect it creates:
I have also used it on this card to create a stamped edge along the bottom of the card. I combined it with the Yes, You set:
I hope you like today's stamps! You will be able to get your hands on all of the release from tomorrow. Stop by for our release day blog hop as there will be prizes to be won :)
I didn't realise that the blue background to your blooms was stamped with the pinstripe, you have a very good eye to get it so neat! Your other cards just show how versatile that stamp is. :)ReplyDelete
Wonderful showcase and three fabulous ideas for using the pinstripe. I agree with you it is sooo easy to use and line up, going to be a big seller I'm thinking!ReplyDelete
Yes, this pinstripes background is a must have in our stash and you perfectly showcased it ! Lovely wreath too with the great freebie ! xReplyDelete
Wow Sarah, you created three wonderful cards!ReplyDelete
I havn't thought about stamping grid-pattern with the pinstripes yet! What a great use of this stamp! Also a cool idea to use it just to stamp the edge of a card!
Thanks for the inspitations! I think these new stamps will rest a bit longer on my table to have them always near my hands when they fit to my cards...
