Something Different

Sometimes you just really need some new stamps or paper or something crafty, don't you?  Last weekend, I went to Michaels and AC Moore with 50% off coupons and came away with a couple of stamp sets.  One was Asian Inspired from Fiskars and the other a sentiment set from Hero Arts.

Normally I don't gravitate toward Eastern inspired designs, but I really loved the background stamp in a set by Fiskars.  I've only had one other Fiskars stamp set. The stamped image quality is so good, I knew I'd like another.  With the coupon, I think I got a set with a background stamp and a bunch of other images for about $9 - a super, sweet deal.

These cards are my first takes on the set.  So far I really like this try at a little bit different style.

For the brown panel, I used the Martha Stewart Scoreboard to make score lines every 1/8" and then used the back side of that.  I was trying for a bamboo look.

Have you tried any different styles or techniques lately?  Thanks for stopping by today!

  1. Both of your cards are stunning.
    I can't even pick a favourite as they are both so beautiful.
    That background stamp is gorgeous.
