DOstamper STARS #107

It's Thursday again.  Time for another DOstamper STARS Challenge.  This week we have a photo-inspired Home Sweet Home Challenge. 

I was inspired by the colors and the simple design of the cookies. Normally, I don't think about stamping my DSP (not really sure why - probably because it is so great to begin with).  But then I saw a technique on Pinterest of stamping the Back to Black DSP with the Polka Dot stamp from the Dotty Angles stamp set.  For my card, I chose Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight as my colors and stamped them on the leaf/floral paper.  Doesn't that make them look like fall leaves?

I then used two of the actual leaf stamps from the Fall Fest stamp set to stamp around the greeting.  I added some Pumpkin Pie ribbon and some Basic Black Candy Dots to finish the card.

Here I did the same technique with more spring-like colors.  I used Pink Pirouette, Strawberry Slush and Pear Pizzazz to stamp the polka dots on the same sheet of DSP.  Now they look more like flowers to me.  I stamped some flowers from the Petite Petals stamp set around my greeting and added some silver ribbon and rhinestones.

Hope you liked my cards today.  Visit my fellow STARS for more inspiration.

  1. I love how the stamping on the DSP totally changed the look of the paper. Very clever and beautiful Cindy! TFS

  2. Beautiful cards Cindy! I love to color the Back to Black DSP, but did not think of using more than one color per flower. Love the looks of it. Thank you for sharing.
