Conscious Coupling...

Conscious coupling....
No, I am not trying to convince Chris and Gweneth to get back together...like ever.
Nor am I attempting to get Martha and Gwyneth to become BFF.
I am only sharing an example of pairing up two different stamp sets and creating a unique design. 

 
                                               Friendly Flowers                          Persian Motif
Ding---> solid stamps+outline stamps = the perfect odd couple!

When you see the following photos, you'll know what I am talking about...

I stamped the outline stamps to cover the entire card front. Then, selectively, I stamped the solid images over the outlines...
thinking of you
Creating your own background paper is easier than you think. Hope you are inspired!

Lastly, here is the sneak peek for this week's challenge over StampNation

If you are interested in joining StampNation, you can check it out here . I will be conducting a Stamp Clinic over StampNation in early December. It's going to be fun!
 Well, that's it for today. Thanks for stopping by!
