This challenge is all about using your stamps to create to create a background. Creating stamped backgrounds is so much fun and a great way to get more out of your stamps. For today's card, I combined the "Hedgehugs" and "Love You S'More" stamp sets to create a cute love/friendship card.

To create my background, I die cut a piece of SSS "Khaki" cardstock using the A2-sized stitched rectangle die. I masked the stitched edges and stamped the larger pine tree from the "Love You S'More" stamp set using SSS "Khaki" dye ink. I then distressed the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink. I colored the hedgehogs and small heart with Copic Markers and cut them out using the coordinating dies.

Hedgehogs: E30, E31, E43, E44, E47, R20
Heart: R37, R79

I die cut a piece of SSS "Olive" cardstock using one of the small stitched rectangle dies and then used the grassy border die to create some grass. I then white heat embossed the sentiment directly onto the grassy layer and adhered all of my images onto the background panel using foam tape. As a finishing touch, I added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins and some Gold Sparkle twine.

I hope today's card has inspired you and I cannot wait to see what you create! Thanks again for stopping by and if you would like to see more wonderful inspiration, be sure to visit the Lawnscaping Challenges Facebook page! ♥
