A Stampin' We Will Go

Yep, I picked up some of my stamps again. I can't believe how much I am using them these days and it is so much fun.
 I wanted to play along with the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger so this is the result. I loved the wonderful, soft, creams and tans of the trigger so that was my starting point.
The trigger piece has a spoon and knife but I thought this cute couple could mimic that look.  I stamped the Tweed background stamp from Hero Arts with a Versamark stamp pad and embossed using an Ivory colored embossing powder. I used the same color for the little boy and girl stamp. Then the pieces were rubbed with a stamp pad and sprayed with Chalkboard sprays. The doily is a wonderful die from My Favorite Things.
 
 Here is the Tuesday Trigger.
This also fits the Vintage challenge at a Blog Named Hero


 Next up, I went to the Colour Q color combination. It seemed like a fun fit for a Moving card plus the arrows fit the Simon Says Stamp challenge.
 The adorable little house is a Hero Arts stamp as is the neat dot background stamp. I love that kraft color of the ink for the background. The sentiment and the arrows are cut with the Cricut.
 Here is the Colour Q combination.
And the link to the Simon Says Stamp arrow challenge.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

Love that your couple is mimicking the cutlery! You did a wonderful job on the background stamp, the embossing techniques and I also love the sponged edge of the doily. Great take on the trigger!
