Why, Thank You!

Stampin' Up! has offered a selection of single stamps in our last catalog, and to be able to show it, one must buy it to demo it...so this is the one I chose. Yesterday while filling orders that had come in (yes, I pack the bags for the hostesses), and I usually try to remember to stamp a Thank You on the invoices...so I grabbed this one...the one featured in the framed diamond.
When it came time to stamp the hostess's order form, I wanted to stamp it 3 times, and it happened to turn out in a pattern...hmmm...wonder if I could do something with that idea?
.
So last night, I pulled out my Stamp-a-ma-jig and did the background in about 10 minutes. I thought I could use this idea for SCS Limited Supply challenge (LSC209) to make a background paper out of one set, and comeplete the card with only stamps from that set...so, having used a single stamp to do the background, I also needed to use it for the greeting. I used Pacific Point ink on Certainly Celery, but the better match for the quarter sheet behind the card was actually Not Quite Navy. Grosgrain ribbon and Nesabilities squares to highlight the single image.
.
If you haven't gone past the index in the Stampin' Up!'s Spring & Summer Idea Book & Catalog, you should! Not only is the Ronald McDonald House Charities set there, but you will find several single images as well as two very affordable starter Mini Note kits, perfect gifts for the new stampers who are curious, or maybe someone you would like to help become a stampin' buddy!

C-ya later!

That one little stamp got a great work out. Thanks for showing me its potential.

I like how you stamped the background, and the main image with the same stamp. Nice work!
