‘Tis the Season

I know a bunch of you are going to want this stamp set.  It just got restocked in the Whimsy Online store.  Better hurry, it has already sold out once.

I had fun designing this card utilizing my background stamps.  You can find more details below.

Although this post is showcasing a new stamp set called Cocktails, from Whimsy stamps, I really want to talk about creating your own pattern paper.  I LOVE-LOVE-LOVE to be able to grab a background stamp, and my favorite ink pad (Catherine Pooler Ink), and create a pattern paper that compliments my card.  My favorite backgrounds are from Whimsy Stamps, and you can browse the selection HERE.

These 5.75 x 5.75 rubber stamps allow me to get a crisp image for so many size cards.  Using the Catherine Pooler Ink pads allows for an even coverage of the stamp.  It is a win, win situation.

I just thought I would put a little bug in your ear to go check out these backgrounds in order to make the perfect pattern paper for your cards.  I find it easier then buying a lot of preprinted paper.
