MIM #116 Adding Texture to Stamps

So happy for Monday this week.
My whole family 20+ celebrated Mother's Day at our house!
I'm stamping instead of cleaning! (Can you relate?)
Betsy Veldman used a comb to texturize a stamp. Then we were challenged to put texture to stamp.
Here's what soft sliced styrofoam can do to petals from Happiness in Bloom.
On a piece of Ocean Tides I created a wallpaper background of Fresh Snow blossoms, then Harvest Gold, then Avocodo centers.
Medallion is also crosshatched with the soft styrofoam. Only I alternated colors of ink onto Ripe Avocado die cuts. Vellum separates them.
Felt and tissue leaves. Acrylic brad.
Feeling thankful from Signature Greetings II.
Check out Betsy's tutorial on Nichole Heady's Blog here:


  1. This is really beautiful! Your background is great, and I love the texture you've created!

  2. OMG!! This is SO BEAUIFUL!! I LOVE the AMAZING Design and the way you stamped the background and added the layered fower on top!! THANKS for sharing and have a FABULOUS WEEK!! =)

  3. This is beautiful Nancy, love the background and EVERYTHING you did!!

  4. Love your card its so pretty. I can totally relate to the stamping instead of housework vibe. (I will clean the house tomorrow!)Glad you had a wonderful mother's day.

  5. I love to visit your blog - your creations are absolutely amazing! And I really enjoy reading your descriptions of how you put it all together. (I hate to sound like a complainer, but the script font is really challenging to read. I hope you will consider changing it back to something a little simpler for those of us with "old eyes.")Thanks!

  6. Love the layers & texture on your card Nancy - just delightful! I will admit it can take up to a week to get the house back to normal after a big party - how wonderful to have all your family around!

  7. I love how this texture looks like the images are painted on your card. Lovely!! Also the cards from you earlier post are really stunning, love the feminine look of them!!

  8. Yes, I can relate! Sounds like we were both blessed with a house full of love!

  10. There is some great anti-virus and security software for Android and many address the two issues in one.
    Equipped with the latest 3rd generation Intel Core
    series processors, a wide selection of ports, and up to 15 hours
    of real-world battery life, the T430 is one of the best business
    notebooks of 2012. Online retailers like Expansys, Clove and Mobile - Fun have indicated that the white version of Samsung
    Galaxy Nexus will be available within February next.
