Squeeze the Day

I have a couple of cards to show you today. I used a two of my new stamp sets - out of the new (well, it's been out about 2-3 months now) A Muse Studios catalog. These are such fun stamp sets - and both of them have coordinating dies to make using them super easy.

Here's the first card:

Squeeze the Day - page 68  in the catalog

You might want to know how I got the speckled paper on the background. - I'm glad you asked. ;)

Here's what I used:

It's a piece of aquarium filter - or something like that. I've had it for years, so I can't remember what it's called. I got it at a pet store. I simply pat it onto the stamp pad (whatever color I want to add to my paper) and then tap it onto the paper. For this card I used four different colors - Apricot, Buttercup, Grass, and Papaya.

Here's the inside of my card:

Here is the second card I have to show you:

First in My Book - page 62 in the catalog

Again, I used multiple inks - this time three (Cocoa, Toffee, and Wheat) and repeatedly stamped the horse to give motion and multiple images to my card. Of course I cleaned the stamp between each color.

There's another horse stamped inside the card along with a sentiment:

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
