Creative Ways of Combining Stamps (4 Ways!)

Hello friends!  

I am popping in with a quick share about combining two unlikely stamps together.

 
Previously, I made a few stamped background with Enlightened (Penny Black)
1 in stock over Simon Says Stamp, 9 in stock over Scrapbook. com (as of posting time)

I  really love how this background turned out. But I was left with a "now what!?" question in my head. I did used the same background stamp to create....

just for you -002

 just for you

So..... this time, I paired it with the Companions (aptly named) 

 
You get this result. 

Thanks

Isn't this cling stamp amazing?

I used Distress Oxide for the background as usual.

 I then stamped the rose outlines at both corners with Versamark.  Thanks to the colorful background, this card took very little time to create.

The sentiment is part of the Thanks & Hello Die.

The last few days have been emotional and  stressful. My 94-year old Father-in-law is gravely ill. I share some of the latest pictures over my Instagram My Story. Thank you for your kind and thoughtful messages.
