Out theme this month is Mix and Match Collections. I decided to mix and match Samantha’s paper collection with her clear and rubber stamps.

Here is my card.

Just because by Daniela Dobson

Samantha Walker Supplies:

Giddy Up Girl paper collection
Cool Summer brads
Leafy Background Stamp
Buntings and Banners
Doilies & Lace

Other Supplies:

Therm O Web Adhesive and photo corners
Clearsnap ink and embossing powder
VersaMark ink
The Twinery Twine
Heidi Swapp Color Shine

I started by stamping the Leafy Background with VersaMark ink on white cardstock and heat embossing with white embossing powder.

Step 1 Daniela Dobson

I sprayed the cardstock with Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Tropicana Teal. Once it was dry I adhered it to a piece of patterned paper from Giddy Up Girl collection and that was my card base.

Step 2 Daniela Dobson

I stampeded tow different doilies from Doilies & Lace stamp set on white cardstock that I cut out. Step 3 Daniela Dobson

The two doilies were stacked on top of each other. I added a brad to the smaller, pink one and used 3D Foam adhesive to add dimension. The sentiment is from Buntings and Banners stamp set. I just cut it into a banner and tucked it under the small doily.
