This brick background stamp from Magenta is a very versatile image to add to your collection. In the sample below we've used distressed ink in Fired Brick and Brushed Corduroy to achieve the mottled colour on this stamp. The poppies were coloured with Hot Cinnamon H2O Paint and the bright red vellum picks up the poppy colour.

The inside has a repeat of the bricks and the vellum. The verse is a cling-stamp from Penny Black.

Even though this is an older design from BoBunny, I still love the selection of colours that they used. The tendency these days is to show a lot of white on cards. Both of these cards are a good example of this trend. Speaking of trends, the honeycomb die from Tim Holtz is also very current. In the example below we have die-cut the honeycomb from white card and cut it as well through the BoBunny paper. The honeycomb shapes fit back into the outline in random areas. In the 'Sending You Smiles' card, a little piece of acetate layered in the circle window adds a fun little touch.
