MSS Sneak Peek Day 3: Houndstooth


Are you ready for the very last sneak peek!? It's my new FAVORITE background- I am absolutely in love with the small scale houndstooth pattern- it's PERFECT for card makers and is different than any other houndstooth pattern I've seen out there. The new Houndstooth background stamp was illustrated by Tifany DeGough and trust me- it makes a BIG impact! 

Here are the details of the release (all this can be found on the MSS blog, too!)
  • The February release stamps will be "sneaked" on the MSS blog Monday-Wednesday at 7PM Central Time!
  • The full sets will be revealed on Thursday night!
  • Stamps will be available for sale following the reveal Thursday night!
  • The February release stamps will be 15% off in the store for an entire week following the release!! Want all of the sets? If you order the whole release they'll be 25% off for an entire week!! Can't beat that!
And here's what I've made (so far... this bad boy is gonna get a lot of play! HAHA!) with the new Houndstooth background stamp:

I created this very vintage inspired card using the new Houndstooth in two different ink colors as well as the new Neighborhood stamp! I stamped the Houndstooth on the bottom half of a regular A2 sized card using a muse studio Onyx ink. Then, I cut a smaller piece of cardstock and stamped the Houndstooth again using a muse studio Latte ink. I stamped the houses and added some beautiful green ribbon (because I personally think everything is prettier with a bow... lol!). I rounded the corners and adhered the stamped image to the card with foam adhesive. Very simple, very clean, very ME!

On the inside, I masked an area in the center and stamped the house from Neighborhood with Latte ink. Then, I stamped the sentiment over top of the house image with Onyx ink! 

Make sure you run over to the Market Street Stamps blog to check out all the other sneak peeks!
I'm also linking this up over on the Moxie Fab World Blog! This week's Tuesday Trigger is HOME SWEET HOME! Couldn't be more perfect timing! It's also a two-weeker- so get your order in for the new Neighborhood and Home Sweet Home sets so you can play along, too!

Loving all the home inspiration....
