Quickie Card - Heartfelt Thanks

I'm loving my new Floral Fantasy background stamp from My Favorite Things, which I picked up from Seven Hills Crafts during my latest stash accumulator, it's a lovely 5 3/4" x 5 3/4" rubber stamp. Perfect for making simple backgrounds and for making "Colour Me" style cards for gift giving as well as making pretty colourful floral backgrounds for a wide variety of card types.

I couldn't resist playing with the stamp as soon as it turned up, I knew I didn't really have much time to play that day though, so I took a card blank I previously made using some red card from a pad from 'The Range'. Then after using my E  K Success Powder Tool all over the background, I inked the stamp up with Versamark and stamped on to the card blank.

Next I then sprinkled some WOW 'Rich Metallic Gold Super Fine' embossing powder over the image and tapped off the excess. I used my new Woodware Heat Gun to set the embossing powder and was really pleased at the finished image.  I also picked up the new Lil' Inkers 'Dual Stitched Heart & Kisses Word' Die Set from Seven Hills and a couple of Lil' Inkers sentiment dies including the 'Thanks' one I used on this card.

I die cut the heart from the same red card stock and cut the thanks sentiment from gold foiled card, I used some cosmic shimmer glue from the 'h' to the 'k' on the word die cut and attached it to the heart. Then I stuck the heart to the  front of the card with some 3D foam pads, it took me 10 minutes to make this card from start to finish and I think it looks rather effective for such a quick make. I think you'll be seeing lots more cards using this background in the future, I'm hoping to acquire more background stamps throughout this year that can be used for a variety of styles of card like this one.
