Addicted to Stamps and More




Hi everyone ~ It's time for a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More, and this week's theme is 'Clean & Simple'!
Our sponsor for this challenge is Inspired by Stamping and they will be awarding a $20. gift card to the winner!


A few weeks ago, Therese Calvird created a card using a unique design detail ~ She divided the front panel on her card horizontally, and stamped a diagonal pattern in between. So, with her blessing, this is my CASE of her idea:




Thanks, Therese! I stamped the butterfly, the stripe and sentiment with Versafine and the details of the butterfly with two Mama Elephant pigment inks. A few sequins and an enamel dot, and it was done!

So, if you would like to play along, stop over to the Addicted to Stamps & More blog to see all of the beautiful cards my teamies have designed to inspire you!

Thanks so much for stopping by,
