You & Me {Market Street Stamps}

***Looking for my Growing in Unity post? Look HERE***

{As seen today on the Market Street Stamps blog}


When I first heard about Market Street Stamps there was just a small selection of stamps, but I remember seeing this one and especially being drawn to the cute sentiment.

Can you believe that I've owned this stamp for almost a year and just now am finally making a card from it? When there are so many awesome stamps to choose from (and new releases every month!), sometimes I will forget about some of the "older" sets that I have.

Well...it was finally time to ink up this set...


I kept a traditional "nature" color palette, but I can see so many fun options with this set.
I think I'd like to try some crazy, unnatural color combination.
I also think the tree stamp would be great for a fun technique like stamp kissing.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Adorable! I like this color combination, but it will be interesting to see what you can do with non-traditional colors.

I am guilty of not using a stamp I just HAD TO HAVE for a year or more also. Your card is great and well worth the year wait on the stamp.

I really like your card. I think you are right that there are many ways you could use this stamp with different techniques and colors to come up with a lot of great results!
