Stamp Set Roulette {Thank You}

Saturday, June 28, 2014

 
Every now and again I like to challenge myself with something I call
 
I choose 2 stamps sets. at random, and I have to make them work together.
Sometimes I get lucky and they are easy to use together, other times not.
It's fun!  It helps me to pull out and use older sets in my collection too.
 
 
This time I got Trendy Tree Tops and Love Lives Here.
I got lucky.......this time ;)
 
 
At the end of the school year I used up many of my 'Thank You' cards
and I need to add a few more back into my stash.
 
 
I used the kissing technique to add a woodgrain pattern
to the tree trunk using a woodgrain stamp.

 
Thanks so much for stopping by!
