One background: four cards

When I made this card that I shared earlier this week, 
I used my MISTI to stamp my background.
And I thought, if I'm already using my MISTI, 
why don't I stamp  a few extra backgrounds right away?
So I stamped four in total using Altenew's Painted Flowers stamp set.

For this card, the panel is stamped exactly the same as my first card.

One background: four cards Leigh Penner @leigh148 #cards

Once again, I used the same sentiment stamp (from PTI's KIS: Birthday)
 heat embossed in white on black cardstock, but I trimmed down the strip, 
instead of the width of the whole card.

For my next card, I stamped the flowers in sweet blush and berry sorbet.

I stamped my sentiment (from Simon Says Stamp's Congratulations stamp set)
in versafine onyx black onto the vellum and heat embossed it in clear.

And for my last card, I rotated the panel and stamped 
a few flowers at the top in the opposite corner.

Once again, the sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp's Congratulations stamp set.

On all of the cards, I added some PTI Rainstones to finish them off.

Thanks for looking!

my gosh, each and every combo you came up with here is absolutely amazing, Leigh! I'd look at each card and tell myself, "oooh, this one is my favorite"....until I'd see the next one, and then I'd repeat the process!!

Love x 4, Leigh! You're convincing me more and more that I *need* a Misti! Perhaps when/if we travel to the US, I'll take the plunge. If it means I can create stunning beauties like yours, then it's well worth the investment! In awe!
