Market Street Stamps New Release--Day 3



Hi-ya!  I'm a little late tonight with my post but it's here now!  I was out enjoying the AWESOME weather we had today and into this evening.  I'm talking 70's today and 50's tonight.  Beautiful weather and I had to take advantage of it and go for a nice long walk!

Today we are introducing another new stamp and this one is AWESOME because it shows off one of the hottest trends!  It is a HOUNDSTOOTH background.....but it is not just some Houndstooth background.  It's a smaller scaled Houndstooth pattern.  Thank you Tifany DeGough for designing this background......it is going to get a lot of use!  Have you checked out Market Street Stamps backgrounds yet?  They fit an entire cardfront.....just perfection. 



So for my card, I paired Houndstooth up with yesterday's set called Riding By for a little 'retro' love.  This card is already addressed and ready to send out to a very special friend!  She loves her bike and she indeed has an orange bike too!  And guess what?  She even has dogs so the tiny dog in a basket stamp was perfect for this!  My sentiment was white embossed onto the Houndstooth background.  I have to mention that this sentiment is NOT curved in the set but with clear stamps, it's so easy to do!!!

Super cute card. Looks like a good release. I have the big houndstooth, but this one looks really nice in the smaller scale.

I totally agree! I cannot not get enough of MSS backgrounds, and this one is definitely a winner in my book! Sweet, little card! LOVE all that vibrant orange!

So glad you had fun playing in this beautiful weather! BJ took Adina to see the trout stocked at the lake. Unfortunately, Ezekiel was having a bit of a rough day. So, he and I had to miss out :(. Hugs!

These colours just pop off the card and I really like how you used part of the stamp to peek out of the circle.

This card is absolutely darling, Amy! Fabulous and fun color choices, and the houndstooth pattern is so clean and crisp. Love it!

I love the bright colors you used! The Houndstooth looks great on the "Raspberry Fizz" and I am sure Tifany will agree with me that you can't go with the "Orange Zest" (she and I are fellow Fiskateers and Orange is our color!). I like how you set it off to the side and used the border down the right side. Great card!

Katie {choc0holic} said...

Love that tiny houndstooth! And the orange bike...so fun! My daughter would die for a little basket for her bike!

Laurie said...

I am loving these bright colors and how your showcased the bike! Great card!
