Playing with Three Shades of Gray

Hi and happy Monday!

I have another card to share using one of the stamps from the recent SSS release, Teacher's Pet.

For this card, I used the Alphabet Background Cling stamp. I decided to stamp it, using Hero Arts' Soft Granite Ink, onto Simon Says Stamp's Smoke Cardstock for the card base. Love the tone-on-tone effect.


I cut two tags, with Simon's Medium Tags Dies, out of their Smoke and Fog cardstock. One of the tags was stamped and white embossed with a dotty stamp from their Ice Cream Dream clear stamp set. I stamped the sentiment onto the other tag. It's one included in their Friendship Messages set. 

To finish off the card, I added a couple of strips of cardstock, some little punched hearts and silver thread.

I'm excited to start the newest online card class! Stretch Your Stamps 2 starts today. You can still register for this class and work at your own pace because you get a lifetime access to all the lessons and videos! These classes are well worth the price and I always learn so much from the talented teachers and guest artist.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you get some time this week to play with inks and stamps! ♥
