There are a TON of amazing new stamps being released this week.  OH so many, I had a hard time picking which ones to play with.  I have three cards to share with you today.

There are a bunch of really cute dollar stamps out this week and these little hedgehogs just needed to be a card.  I foiled them with gold and green.  They are so pretty in real life, but again, my camera has failed me.  If anyone has tips on how to capture the foil affect, I would really appreciate it.

I’m foiling again, but this time in silver and teal.  I started to think this would make for one amazing wedding card.  So, I stuck with the elegant theme, added the vellum and strip background with some rhinestones and ink splatters.

Last up is this vintage rooster.  I’m not usually into the vintage/country style, but this little rooster begs to be in a country yard.  I didn’t have the perfect patterned paper to stamp him on, so I created my own antiqued background.  Turned out pretty perfect.


I have an Assemble This! video sharing how I created the antique background for your viewing pleasure.
