Sweet 'n Sassy Release Celebration - Leafy Flourish Background & More

Hi folks and welcome to the January Sweet 'n Sassy Release week celebration!  Get ready to have your socks knocked off this week...Korin has some amazing stamp sets in store for you this month and you are going to love each and every one of them!

First up is one of my favs...a big 'ol background stamp called Leafy Flourish Background & More...and it's full of swirls!  What could be better for this flower/swirl lovin' girl!  I decided to combine bring a little mixed media to my first project and grabbed my Distress Paints for this first project.  To start, I apply Distress Paint directly on to the stamp, gave the stamp a spritz of water, and stamped on the tag.  Beautiful!!  The paints mix together so well, without getting muddy...love that!  

I then used the Typewriter Text background stamp to stamp over the entire tag.  I then covered a die cut circle with metal foil tape, ran that through my Vagabond, using a Tim Texture Fade, applied black paint, and the sanded down the paint after it was dry.  This was to be the home for my sweet vintage typewriter, from last month's release, Keep in Touch (there's a matching die too!)  I just added some twine behind the typewriter and attached a sentiment to the top of the tag with a stapler.  

This background stamp is amazing and can be used in some many applications...just check out what our design team has created by following the links below!
