Stamp of the Month from Taylored Expressions, called Take a Spin, and tried using it in a different way. I tried using it as a background stamp and created a one layer card. I decided to use black ink to create the "background" and add some red accents later.
I thought the patterns within the stamp itself would add some interest even when stamped in one color. The circle is kind of large for a card, so this might work best on a scrapbook page, but it turned out okay for a card. After I stamped the large circle, I filled in with one of the little circle sentiments. Next, I used the coordinating die set, Spin It To Win It, and die cut hearts out of the card. I placed red cardstock behind so that the red would "peek" through the hearts. The center heart is on foam tape so it stands up a bit. I finished the card with some red bling and some Baker's Twine.
This definitely a different way to use this stamp set, but I kinds like how it turned out! :) I hope you've been inspired to use your stamps in a non-traditional way! Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful day!!
