2 Layouts - Background Stamping - Frosted Designs DT

 This week over at Frosted Designs our challenge is "Background Stamping".  Have you seen those really cool Donna Downey stamps that were just released at CHA?  Well, I had the "tree" on order and on it's way.  So when I got here, I was so excited to use it for this challenge.  Which is probably why I was really not thrilled with my layouts.  Too high expectations?  I mean, they're ok and all, just not what I had pictured in my head.  So here they are...   and I'll be trying that stamp again soon.

Up in the branches:  Stamped with Stampin Up Vanilla Kraft Ink.  PP is Sassafras Lass.

Jungle Love:  I stamped & cut out another tree on different paper, and used it as a mask (covering this tree) and then stamped a big "word" stamp on the background.  I had it in my head to use an old book on this layout, so I did that too.  PP is Sassafras Lass (again, I guess that's what I had out the day I did these)


  1. I know what you mean about the high expectations. I hate waiting for something I think I'll die without and then the big let down.

    At any rate, I adore your layouts, as always, you put heart and soul into them!

  2. Joni... I don't know what you are talking about... I love both of these LOs!! I think it is cool that you used the same stamp, and yet had two totally different outcomes!! These rock!
