Happy Stampers Team Blog Hop

Good morning stampers!

Today's a great day as I've joined a weekly blog hop with some of my stamping buddies, known as the Happy Stampers!  They are super talented so you're in for a treat!

Our challenge was to create a card using this sketch below. I kept mine pretty clean and simple this week.  Enjoy :D

Kinda Eclectic Stamp Off Stamping

I stuck with more of a neutral palette featuring the Kinda Eclectic stamp set.  I actually first did the card with "Thanks" natural element in the bottom right, however I felt the top left was then too empty....so I took it off and then stamped a greeting instead! lol. Of course it's a little crooked, but I still like it!

For this challenge, I wanted to create something soft but one that could be done fast. I however did add some dimension and texture by using Stampin' Dimensionals and a Textured Impressions folder.  I love the white on white in the background layers, don't you?

Instructions and Stampin' Up! Product

I love adding dimension and different color tones using the Stamp Off technique.  All that is is inking your stamp, and them stamping off on scrap paper before stamping onto your card stock, leaving a lighter shade of ink.  I did this in this card with both Wisteria Wonder and Mint Macaron.
