Greetings friends. I really hope that you have enjoyed this week featuring the latest stamps from Impression Obsession.  As you can probably tell, I am very fond of the background stamps.   I like to take them out and make a bunch of background papers to use at a later date.  After all, if you have your supplies out, why not make a few extra?
 
For today's card, I used the Seth Apter Universe Cover a Card with Versamark ink along with purple and green Pan Pastels.  It is the same exact stamp that I used yesterday, but I thought it would be fun to show you how different it looks if you use different colors.
 
The saying today is one that I think I will use often, unfortunately.  I think I will use the My Brain sentiment over and over to apologize for late birthday cards, late thank you cards, etc.  I did add  some layers of shiny metallic gold cardstock for a bit of extra pizazz.
 
Don't forget to visit the other designers to see how they finished the blog hop week:

Beautiful background! I have to admit when I first saw this image on the I/O site,it didn't really appeal to me, but your use in the last two cards is starting to change my mind.

I am also a great fan of background stamps, especially IO stamps. And I really love the colors on this. The sentiment is too cute and unfortunately one that I desperately need!

That background is a stunner Laura. Just shared it on my FB and Twitter feeds and will soon on my blog as well. Stunning colors.

Vivian C. said...

Super card! The feel of the background is so different from yesterday's card. It is such a cool background. I am intrigued with your use of Pan Pastels, might have to give them a try. The sentiment cracked me up and I like your idea of using it for belated birthday cards.

Carol Hintermeier said...

Such a fun card! I like that sentiment too!!

Barb said...

Great card with a perfect sentiment!

Sandy (Cheesy) said...


Love this sentiment......I think we all feel this way at one time or another. And great job of showing how the same stamp can look totally different in different treatments.

This sentiment is amazing! Lovely card!
