Who else is in LOVE with the turnabout stamps from Concord & 9th!? I love them! They make backgrounds so easy! For the blue card I used 3 shades of blue inks from Simon Says Stamp and Studio Calico for the first three turns and then Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder for the last turn. I love this one! I usually shy away from blues, but this might make me come back to them! I love how they pair with the liquid platinum!
The second card is more feminine. Again I used various colors from Simon Says Stamp and Studio Calico. The backgrounds really do all the work for these cards! I wanted to finish off the cards and keep these clean and simple. I used the new script thanks dies from Simon Says Stamp. I love that this die is a set - one to cut the sentiment and another to cut the shadow! I cut a black sentiment for the blue card and a dark gray sentiment for the other. I used various sizes of Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear sequins to add a little shine!
That's all! Super simple, but the background really packs a punch!
