My Mind's Eye....Oh, My!

Paper:  kraft, vanilla, black cardstock; Stella & Rose Mabel Patterned Paper
Accessories:  Hand dyed seam binding, vintage button, Scallop circle nesties

Hello! I just recently ordered all of the new stamps and paper in My Mind's Eye Stella & Rose collection from Paper Maniac, and all I can say is, WOW!  I was reluctant to purchase the clear stamps because of the super cheap price. I thought that meant that they would not stamp well, but oh, my!  They stamp BEAUTIFULLY!  First time, too!  I love the vintage images and how they match so well with all of the paper collections in Stella Rose.
For my card above I used Mabel patterned paper.  I also used stamps from the So, Sweet set and Girly set.  I love the colors in Mabel.  The orange, browns, black and sea foam colors are beautiful together.  I hand dyed some seam binding with orange inks, and added a vintage button to the center.  After stamping the doily, I decided to put a black scallop circle behind it to make it pop.
I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch for this card.

If you were on the fence about buying these stamps...DO IT!  I am crazy excited about how well they stamp for the price!

Thanks for stopping by and make sure check out the links to the products I used on this card!!
